Hey Caverdude can you give us more information on Carbide lamps? You mentioned having them while cave exploring. This would also be a neat idea for long term storage for emergency use. We used to carry life rings on board ships that had a carbide lamp deal that was activated as you threw the ring overboard to somebody in the water. The idea being the carbide stuff would last longer in storage than any battery would.
