Flashlights, Man's Handheld Perpetual Torches

Let There Be Light

The flashlight is probably one of the most useful inventions ever created by man. The ability to cast light on anything in view would have been considered nothing short of magic in the stone ages. Today, almost every consumer has one, and whether these handheld torches are used every day or solely during emergencies, no consumer household should ever be without one. Modern flashlights are extremely compact and some are so small they make sewing thimbles look large by comparison. As advanced as these modern marvels are, the early iterations of flashlights were anything but small. In fact, many early versions looked more akin to lanterns as opposed to the torches consumers know today.

As the marriage of two inventions, the dry cell battery, and the incandescent fiber, the first flashlight was extremely large, exorbitantly expensive, and notoriously unreliable. Patented by David Misell in 1898, this precursor to modern torches was dubbed the electric hand torch and was manufactured by Ever Ready. With the passage of time and the emergence of high-quality light bulbs which didn't burn out as easily as previous models; the flashlight received a major upgrade and the notorious unreliability for which it was known soon turned to praise and strong wanting. Aside from being more reliable, the upgraded bulb also reduced production costs bringing the price of flashlights down considerably.From the 1900s to the 1960s flashlights underwent numerous advancements with some more drastic than others but none more so than the introduction of LED components. The LED or light-emitting diode, was accidentally created by James R. Biard and Gary Pittman in an attempt to develop semiconductors. Compared to incandescent bulbs LEDs were much brighter and a far greener alternative to all previous flashlight bulbs making them the next big step in light-emitting technology.

Today there exist a wide variety of flashlights, some still utilize incandescent bulbs while others use bulbs containing special gases, or LEDs altogether. Aside from having different light sources, flashlights also have many forms from the traditional handheld light, to led lanterns, or even mobile floodlights. These innovations in flashlight technology have ensured that no matter the task, there will always be a light to shine through the darkness.


The Right Light for Any Situation

With such a colorful history behind them, it's no wonder flashlights are so diverse in their build, functions, and uses. As a consumer, it can sometimes be difficult to narrow down what light device is best. To make the buying processes much easier consumers should familiarize themselves with the various types of flashlights as well as their benefits and inherent drawbacks so as to make the best choice when purchasing a product.

1. Incandescent Bulbs
The run-of-the-mill flashlight typically makes use of incandescent bulbs. Because they have existed for so long, the effectiveness of these devices has been proven and time-tested. These products emit light by running a charge through a filament which then emits light. Unfortunately, the filament also emits heat and this drastically shortens the life of the bulb as well as the battery. Despite the shorter life of incandescent bulbs and their various shortcomings, these types of flashlights are still widely popular due to their overall budget-friendly price point and commercially plentiful nature. It's safe to say that these devices are so common, almost every grocery store in the world has at least one brand of incandescent flashlights in its inventory. Because of their availability and low price, it is advisable that consumers purchase at least one incandescent flashlight as a backup source of light in times of necessity such as power outages or natural disasters. As an added benefit, many of these products come in water-resistant housings to allow for use even in inclement weather conditions.

2. Gas-filled Bulbs
Gas-filled bulbs are simply bulbs that contain a special gas which serves to lengthen the lifespan of the filament contained within the bulb. In essence, these products are just more advanced forms of the ever so famous incandescent bulb. The main drawback of incandescent bulbs was the heat that the filament produced in conjunction with light. To remedy this, certain gases such as krypton, xenon, and halogen are stored in the bulb to help dissipate the heat. Flashlights that utilize gas-filled bulbs last much longer than traditional incandescent lights, however, the presence of pressurized gas in the bulb makes these devices more susceptible to drops or failure upon misuse. Along with lasting longer than traditional bulbs, the gas contained in these lights increases overall brightness exponentially. Thanks to the light-boosting properties of halogen, krypton, and xenon gases, gas-filled bulbs are among some of the brightest flashlights available today. For situations that require extremely bright lights, these bulbs are the go-to choice.

3. LED Lights
Light-emitting devices, or LEDs as they are better known, are among the longest-lasting devices in the market today. Where many flashlights produce heat along with much-needed light, LEDs produce light along with a much smaller amount of heat. Although many manufacturers claim that LEDs produce no heat whatsoever, this is simply not true. However, the heat produced by these devices compared to traditional bulbs is considerably lower, so much so that LEDs can often be operated for extended periods without becoming hot to the touch. The reduced heat generated by LEDs makes them far less vulnerable to burning out and in turn, this gives LED flashlights an extremely long service life. By lasting longer, these products eliminate the need for consumers to purchase new flashlights every year and this severely cuts down on the carbon footprint left by incandescent bulbs.

4. Shake Lights & Headlamps
Shake lights and headlamps are umbrella terms as many of these products can make use of either incandescent bulbs or LEDs. These flashlights differ from conventional lights in that they have a unique form to meet a specific need. Shake lights are like regular flashlights, however, instead of being powered by batteries, these products are powered by a magnet which when shaken, produces charge for several hours of illumination; hence the name shakes light. Headlamps are essentially miniaturized flashlights that typically come with a handy adjustable headband. These devices fit around a user's forehead and provide handsfree illumination allowing users to handle difficult tasks such as starting campfires in the dark, or rummaging through clutter in the attic. Once consumers have gathered enough general knowledge regarding flashlights, the question of what light to purchase becomes relatively simple. The best purchase is the one that fully meets the users' needs while still being priced moderately. As a rule of thumb, most decent flashlights sell for 15 to 20 dollars anything below this standard price would perform questionably at best.


What Makes Flashlights Tick

Like all modern products, flashlights come with a set of specifications. Aside from ensuring that manufacturers retain a certain standard of quality, these specifications also provide consumers with important details on how a light device functions. Some specifications may seem difficult to understand at first, but a bit of research will go a long way in helping consumers decode these specs.

1. Maximum Output
The maximum output of a device refers to how bright a flashlight can be at its peak setting with a full charge. More often than not, the maximum output is specified in lumens with decent flashlights having a maximum output of no less than 100 lumens. Aside from determining the brightness, the maximum output also contributes to the range at which the product's light beam extends. Generally, the higher the output the further the beam's range is.

2. Efficiency
Efficiency is essentially a measure of how well a device makes use of its power source. Users should look for a device with a high level of efficiency as this will help them cut down on batteries and replacement power sources.

3. Runtime
The total duration that a flashlight can provide light is indicated by the runtime. It is usually common for the runtime to be inversely proportional to maximum output. The higher the maximum output of a flashlight, the shorter the runtime usually is.

4. Power Source
A flashlight's power source refers to the battery or batteries required to provide power to the bulb or LED. Consumers should always take the power source into account as flashlights will only function if the proper power source is utilized. Batteries for flashlights range from small AAA batteries to extremely large 9-volts and even D-batteries.


The Best Brands Among Flashlights

Flashlights come in all shapes and sizes and consumers can exercise their buyer's right by choosing among the market's many offerings of light-generating devices. Like all good products, flashlights come three particular pricepoints ranging from entry-level pieces to Mid-level and high-end products.

FAQ

・ Why does my LED flashlight no longer work after being stored?

- LED flashlights have a considerably longer service life, unfortunately, the same cannot be said for batteries, hence this device should be stored separately from batteries to avoid leaking battery acid.

・ Can I get my rubberized flashlight wet?

- Despite having a rubberized outer layer, a device shouldn't be exposed to water unless it is explicitly stated to be waterproof or at the very least water-resistant. More often than not flashlights are rubberized to provide a better grip.

・ Can I use a baton-style flashlight for self-defense?

- In short, yes! Many baton-style flashlights are built to withstand serious wear and tear, and Maglite flashlights in particular are extremely popular for their uncanny ability to double as a nightstick.
