Keeping your flashlights safe really is not worth the time to build a faraday cage, You would have to stock up on many many batteries to even make it
worth your cost. I guess you could always use a cheap usb solar charger, I would be more worried about keeping my: Solar, PMA's (Permanent Magnetic
Alternators) for wind charging, Inverters AC-DC or DC-AC, Charge controllers, soleniods, capasitors, anything electronic that could be torn down and
reused for making other Energy forming items. Yes grounding your faraday cage is very important, drive a 3/4" copper rod or metal if you dont have
copper into the gound at least 3 - 6 ft deep connect a thick gauged wire to that rod and run it back to your cage,I would keep plenty of distance from
your ground to your cage. otherwise your cage will be a toaster.
