Due to their popularity,there are hundreds of varieties of led flashlights out there.How to choose the right one and where to pick the best one? Here are some suggestions for you.Hope it helps.
Which type of led flashlight should I buy?
Decide why you want the flashlight. Will you use it for camping? Will you carry it in your car? Will you leave it at home in case of a power failure? The led flashlight is used in many occasions, such as party, in a show, trade fair or just simply using the product in dark areas. It is even use in some corporate meeting.
Check brightness and the number of bulbs
Brightness is one of the most important factors to be considered when buying led flashlights. It is central to get something that is bright enough but not too bright since that will just run down batteries more quickly while adding extra size and cost to the flashlight. The best measure for measuring brightness is in lumens with roughly 30 lumens being typical for most uses. The type of beam, and how focused or diffused it may be, should also be considered.
The number of bulbs is usually less important than the brightness, but it’s often listed.
Choose a long life led flashlight that’s right for you.
Run time is another important factor to think about when buying LED flashlights. While they are much more efficient, they will run down batteries over time, especially those that emit a very bright light. LEDs use relatively little power, the potential energy savings by using LED flashlights is estimated to be approximately 85%.
One needs to remember that actual battery life depends on the following factors: (1) the number of LEDs one is lighting (2) the amount of light each LED is giving off, and (3) the type of battery one is using.
Conventional alkaline batteries have a long shelf life but must be replaced.Lithium batteries last longer, also can be recharged, either with wall current or by means of a hand crank built into the flashlight, but they do not have as long a life and may not be suitable for high-reliability applications. Lithium batteries perform better at low temperatures, and are lighter than alkaline batteries. However, these batteries also cost more. So if cost is an issue, purchasing those with alkaline batteries makes sense. Otherwise, lithium batteries should be considered.
Choose a housing material
Plastic is lightweight; aluminum is likely to be more durable. There are a wide variety of options to include types of switches, color of light, clips and anything else the user might need should be considered also.
