get one of the EZ AA lights from Boaz

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

To be intrinsically safe, a flashlight must be certified as meeting some fairly rigorous conditions which will ensure thte light does not give off sparks. Typically, this also means a plastic (non metal) body. This is not an everyday request for a light...since the light is normally used in a hazardous location.

$5 Plastic Ray-O-Vac lights from Walmart are intrinsically safe, not sure what it is you are seeking in terms of "safe".

an 'Intrinsically Safe' Eveready 3D (c1970) from my time on tankers. Laughably dim these days.
