All sorts of professions and hobbies require a strong, durable flashlight. From hunting to camping, working as a police officer or a fisherman, many need to have a flashlight that they can count on at all times. However, it can be hard to know exactly what to look for when you are buying a flashlight. When you just need a basic in-home emergency flashlight, it is simple enough to buy one, but it becomes more complicated for a durable option.
Below are some tips to help you determine the best option based off of your flashlight needs.
The first question you need to ask yourself is how much money you are willing to pay. With flashlights, the more you spend, truly, the better quality it is. Decent flashlights will start at around $25.00, but can be much more expensive. Features such as waterproofing, durability, and more, will affect how much it is.
What size do you want? Consider where you will be bringing your flashlight, and if you need it to fit in certain spots. How heavy can the flashlight acceptably be? Further than size, it is important to note that there are different degrees of durability, though size isn’t always a factor in durability.
Power and Light
Though you know the power source is from a battery, there are even considerations within this. Do you want to have to replace the batteries or do you want to be able to recharge them? There is less power behind standard batteries, but they are much easier to find than a special battery. In addition, always look at the lumens the flashlight has. The more lumens, the brighter; however, over sixty lumens may cause temporary blindness!
Finding the perfect durable flashlight for your needs is harder than it sounds! Not only do you have to find one that is the perfect size and shape, but has the right power and lumens. Panther Vision can help you find the right option.
