Are ocilloscopes useful during modding?

Aside from a voltmeter, are these useful? If so, how are they useful?

Only if you make your own drivers.

I have been modding flashlights for 10 years+ and never needed one because I only buy drivers and build them in.

However, you need a machine that goes “ping”.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I have a oscilloscope, I use it for different tasks. Never needed to use it at flash light work.
