I’m putting together an Every Trip Carry pouch, a more capable version of my current EDC pouch.
Half of my trips are to somewhat remote locations, usually beach places with poor infrastructure. I usually just carry my EDC pouch, but on the last trip I felt the need for something stronger than the 100 lumens of my AAA flashlight. So I started considering an AA or maybe a rechargeable flashlight. I no nothing about the latter though, never owned one.
I really didn’t want to carry one more charger, I already carry more electronics than I wish to, that’s why a thought about AA batteries (they are easy to get). Unless I can recharge the flashlight directly through an USB port.
How do AA and rechargeable flashlights compare? What are your thoughts?
