I remember when these replaced the gray with red bezel "free" flashlights. I may have picked one of these up, but these were much less durable than the gray ones--not that those were all that durable to begin with.

When I was a kid, I was a member of the "battery of the month" club. Every month, my folks would take me to the nearest Radio Shack, where I'd get my card punched and get my free C, D, or 9-volt cell. Of course, these were always the carbon-zinc batteries, not the much better Enercells...

I remember they used to give these out at Radio Shack on Halloween. This was around 1986-87. I had one and it did put out good light. I've since lost or trashed it, along with the gray and red one I had.

I had one also.. I also remember a earlier 5-cell light that was grey. I believe this black one shown replaced the grey. Free flashlight, but you then needed to purchase 5 batteries..

This flashlight was one of many offered by Radio Shack for free with a coupon from their sale papers distributed in the mail.
