About three years ago, I bought a Skil electric screwdriver, and this flashlight came bundled with it. They both use the FlexiCharge 3.6v batteries. The flashlight has a "D" shape, and is about 6" long overall.
Recently, mine has been "borrowed" and I can't find a replacement flashlight that I like, or that will take the (several) FlexiCharge batteries I have. I'm willing to pay a ridiculous amount of money to find one or two of these flashlights. I've contacted Skil, and they say that they can't help, that the unit has been out of production for two years, etc. I'm hoping that one of you has one or more of these critters and will condescend to sell one to me.
I want this flashlight! You got one? Let me know.

of weeks ago, and supplied this link with more info on the unit:

A long time ago, I received this email:

Skil is now bundling the flashlight with a flexi-charge drill (along
with a dual recharger and 2 batteries). I bought the combo unit today
from a Skil repair facility in Norwood MA for $24.99. The product
number on the box is 2236:12. The phone number there is 781-255-0272.

I ordered one and received it -- it's great to
have one again! I think they're "refurbished", but look in very
good condition. Too bad I don't need or want the screwdriver, but it
does come with two batteries -- I kind of doubt that the batteries are
new, but they do work.
