    Lightbulb Recommendations for a good "shake" flashlight?

    I'm looking for a non-battery operated flashlight to keep in the BOB. It's not one I'm going to be carrying around a lot of places, just to keep around should I need some extra light and don't have good batteries in my other lights. So the two main things I'm considering are a) brightness and b) length of charge. I've seen some older styles that were pretty dim, and died after a few minutes. Have they gotten any better in recent years?

    shake lights do not last...get a small hand crank if you must but I keep a 150 Lumen tactical on me and therefore do not need it in a BOB
