I have. The other day I was checking motor-oil level and it was night... don't know why I was checking it at night (duh). I couldn't get the dipstick back into its spot (and didn't know what was going on below the fancy-lawnmower-plastic-engine-cover) so I broke out the little flashlight.

That thing is really handy!

Can this thing be used to point at something, or is it more like a flood light. Like if i'm delivering pizzas, will it be usefull for trying to spot a number on a house from my car? Or is it better suited for searching for change in my floorboards?

It's bright enough but not as bright as a Maglight. It has two blue-ish LED lamps in it... and they blind you when you look at it:p Don't know how long the batteries last... haven't used it for that long yet. It's more of a flood light pattern, so not very good as a light-pointer. Don't think it'll be good for long distance viewing... such as reading house numbers.

Yes. It's inside the car next to the rear dome light. I guess Dodge was thinking that it would be a handy spot... seems ok to me. Besides I don't want it too accessible to the children (they'd play with it to-no-end and either break it or lose it). I usually carry a Maglight up front anyway... that is if my kids don't burn the batteries out:rolleyes:
