    Thanks for the post! I’m looking for a good LED flashlight for my upcoming camping trip. I agree that those flashlights can be expensive but I think they are more dependable and usually have brighter light than cheap traditional flashlights.

    I am also the person who have spent many time on studying a flashlight. Based on my experience, I’m totally agree with the author.
    While many posts outside always mention about lumen, duration, portable size…, I think dimension in your aspect is an absolutely important feature. Because we use a flashlight in dark times, the turn on/ off button has to be easy to control. This will make the correct meanings of a flashlight.

    Flashlights are nothing but the torch to light the dark path….

    How many of us are aware that they can even be used as a self defense tool????


    Picking the right flashlight is mandatory, because these days, it is counted as one of the best self defense tools.

    Right size, requirement, battery rechargeable facility, combo options… and many other facilities are easily available in flashlights.

    Many years back, flashlights were used by armed forces only because of their high beam, but now due to increasing crime rate… companies have modified this tool and made it a handy non lethal tool for self defense.

    I thank you for sharing this post and the tips to choose the right flashlight.

    These sound like good factors to take into account when choosing a flashlight. It sounds like it takes time and research to find the right kind of quality. A LED flashlight seems like it would be the best option to choose.
