Flashlights are handheld, battery powered lights for use where there is no other source of electrical power or where power cords would be inconvenient. They are powered either by replaceable alkaline batteries or by rechargeable nickel cadmium batteries, which can be plugged into an electrical outlet to recharge. Flashlights come in a wide variety of sizes: larger models provide more light but are usually heavier. Most flashlight cases are made from shatter resistant plastic or a durable aluminum alloy.

Look for the following when buying flashlights:
  • Tiny, high intensity disposable flashlights can be conveniently attached to a key chain for close illumination, such as finding the slot for a key, but are of little use beyond a foot or more..
  • Small, 5 to 6 inch models are easy to carry in a pocket, briefcase, or purse. These can have beams that adjust from wide to intense spots of light.
  • 10 to 12 inch flashlights fit conveniently in the hand. Look for models with on and off push buttons that have anodized interiors to resist corrosion and are water and shock proof. These larger units are designed for extended use.
  • A large flashlight is especially useful outside. Make sure it has a shatter proof lens. If you will be using it in a car, boat, or on a work site, look for a weather resistant rugged exterior These models usually have top mounted handles.
  • Digital models can provide an ultra bright focused halogen main beam for up to 15 hours on a single charge.
  • Growing in popularity are LED flashlights, where a single or a series of light emitting diodes replace the conventional flashlight bulb. They provide a highly focused beam that far outlasts a conventional flashlight (approaching a 1000 hours).
