Flashlights - Flash Away Darkness Woes

Aug 17, 2007
From being "flash lights" that provided light only for a few seconds, flashlights have come a long way. Today, some flashlights can give you continuous light for over 10 hours. So there's no need for hunting in the dark or fear of stumbling down stairs during a power cut. Simply buy yourself a few high powered flashlights and keep them handy.

It is necessary to purchase different varieties of flashlights for different uses. If you want to save on costs and think a single flashlight will do, you need to do some rethinking! For one, different intensities of light are required within and around the house and while traveling by your vehicle. If you have a single flashlight at home, you may also forget to carry it while leaving the house. Therefore, invest in a few and they are sure to bail you out in an emergency!

To tackle power cuts at home buy emergency flashlights that have batteries with long-shelf life. Rechargeable batteries will not be of use without power, so buy spare batteries. Go for flashlights that can provide continuous, moderate light for a long time and have flood light to cover large areas. Shake lights are a good alternative to battery-powered flashlights. Apart from emergency lights you require flashlights for general purposes like searching for things in dark corners, under the bed, and in the attic or basement. Buy a small, low intensity flashlight with a broad flood beam.

For personal use, buy a small flashlight that you can carry in your purse or pocket. As this generally comes in handy to locate your seat in a dark theatre or hunt for coins in your purse, you do not require high brightness. A low brightness flashlight that provides a broad flood of light is best suited for personal use.

Buy flashlights that you can use outdoors, for example, when you take your dog out for a walk or go camping. For the former purpose you can purchase a moderate brightness light with rechargeable batteries, while for the latter you will need one with greater brightness and longer battery life. For both purposes invest in a type that you can easily carry. You may also like to purchase a hands-free, swivel flashlight that can be tagged on to your belt or visor.

Keep a small flashlight handy in your vehicle. It will prove invaluable in the event of an accident or a breakdown at night. It's best to choose a bright light with batteries that have long shelf-life.

The basic purpose of a flashlight is to provide a strong and continuous flow of light for several minutes or hours. However, most modern flashlights combine some extras like carry case, key chain, radio, siren, and mobile phone charger. The cost of these flashlights is higher, but ultimately the choice is yours!
