Every shop should be equipped with a rechargeable flashlight. This accessory comes in handy for on-the-spot inspections of oil leaks under vehicles, finding lost tools under benches and racks, and can even come in handy for minor first-aid situations when removing splinters or metal shavings from a thumb or palm. But those benefits aren't the real reason to keep a rechargeable flashlight in the shop; on the day your circuit breaker trips, or there is a power outage in the shop, you'll need to know exactly where your flashlight is, and be able to use it immediately. A rechargeable flashlight sitting on its charger is easy to locate as it is in the same place every time when not being used.
