iv.      Additional Tips: A waterproof LED flashlight with AA Lithium would be best option, but are more expensive (over $50) The lithium batteries are not affected by the extreme cold and are the best choice, the windup or self generating flashlights are ok, but will not hold a charge in extreme cold temps and will constantly have to be cranked. If you get a water resistant flashlight like Maglite above, get AA lithium batteries and store it in a good zip lock bag and it should be fine.
