If you have one of those really cool rechargeable mini LED flashlights with the recharging part on the end opposite the lamp, and you are in a cramped spot and need a third hand to maneuver the light, DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT place the lamp in your mouth to hold on while you use both hands to manipulate the wrench and ratchet. The slightest trace of moisture from your mouth will apparently make the flashlight feel threatened and it will deploy a defense mechanism which apparently can utilize all 18VDC contained in a small Lithium Ion battery.
