Tip & How-To about Camping, Backpacking & Hiking
Any flashlight that uses non-rechargeable batteries, IE... AAA, AA, C, or D batteries. If it is not used on a regular basis and sits for a long time with the batteries still in it, the batteries will leak and damage the flashlight. It is recommended that if the flashlight is not going to be used for long periods of time, that you remove the batteries to avoid leakage into the flashlight. This also is recommended for anything that uses this type of battery. These types of batteries are known leakers.
