Outline

This is a novel flashlight that works with batteries of any size, whether D, C or AA type. In emergencies such as typhoons or earthquakes it can be used with whatever batteries happen to be handy in the kitchen drawer. Not only that, it can use all three different types of batteries at the same time, and so is quite suitable for storage as an emergency light. It is powered by two D batteries, two C batteries, or two AA batteries. The light source is a 2.5V0.75A krypton bulb. The batteries will last for approximately 10 hours (D batteries), 5 hours (C batteries), or 1.5 hours (AA batteries).
