This short episode is in response to a handful of reports (some recent) of 2-cell lithium flashlights exploding. One instance in November resulted in a fatality – the user had his flashlight in his mouth while working under the hood of his car. (For the record: these were NOT Prometheus Lights or Foursevens flashlights.)
In the interest of safety, we put together this PSA to help you all understand what is likely causing this to happen and, most importantly, how to prevent it. Any 2-cell lithium light has the potential to pose the same danger. Be informed.
If you have experience with this or have anything to add to the conversation, please feel free to jump in and comment below.
