The Maglite Solitaire AAA (both the old and the new LED version) has a feature that is, to me, priceless. To turn it on or off you must screw out or screw in the head end of the flashlight. It just never comes on accidentally and runs down the battery without you being aware (as just about all other lights do). Story Time. Some years ago I wrote a brief article describing the Maglite Solitaire AAA and read it to my writer’s club. Afterwards, one of the members stood up, raised an eyebrow, and proclaimed, “Well, THIS is what I use.” Whereupon he pulled a small flashlight from his pocket that was dead as a doornail. I tried not to laugh. I really did.
