In a situation of no power, having some big time flashlights ($60 and $90 dollar, 500 and 700 lumen AA based night blasters that will reach out there 2 and 3 hundred yards) and rechargeable AAs with solar chargers, will sure go a long way to intimidating prowlers, after a couple of weeks of darkness and fading $10.00 flashlights, as more and houses slip into having almost no light except maybe their little solar lights brought in from the garden.

Seeing high quality firepower being worn and carried by you and your neighbors during the day time, and seeing continuous, even wasteful use of mind blowing lights being used at night, as noises and suspicions are checked out, would make for a pretty intimidating atmosphere.

A couple of weeks of darkness can really change the balance of power between the bad guys and the straights, and I think that most people would just want to hide in their homes at night, and hope for the best, as the bad guys took over the nights.

What about those “rechargeable” flashlights that you either shake or turn a crank? Are any of them reliable?
