When you’re looking to buy a new flashlight, its lifespan is likely one of your top considerations. Since flashlights are often used in emergencies, you want a flashlight that lasts a long time since you may not know how long you’ll need it. Many flashlight options in-store and online do not specify how long they’ll last — here’s our guide for estimating flashlight life. How Long Do LED Flashlight Batteries Last? One of the main factors that determines a flashlight’s lifespan is the battery.

How Does a Flashlight Work?

Most homeowners have a flashlight stashed somewhere in the house in case of an emergency or unexpected power outage. With a simple flick or press of a button, you easily trigger a steady source of light — but how exactly are flashlights able to produce light in situations when you need it most? It’s a common question, and we’re here to answer! Parts of a Flashlight While flashlights look like they’d have simple mechanisms on the outside, several smaller pieces are working together inside the body to produce light. Typical flashlights contain the following components: Casing: The case is the outer, protective housing that protects the inner mechanisms of the flashlight, including the batteries and light bulb.
