Don’t Get Lost in the Dark
How often do you find yourself wishing you had a flashlight? It’s one of those things that never seem to matter – until the overwhelming need for one arises. And in those situations, you always end up wishing you had brought one. Maybe you’re out at night and the streetlights suddenly turn off. It has happened to me more than once, so I know first-hand how scary and frustrating it can be. Have you ever dropped something small while fiddling with it in the car? From coins to earrings, and even mobile phones – they can be tricky to spot in the dark nooks of your automobile. You can turn the overhead light on, but that’s not that much brighter than a mere tealight! Need to fix something under the sink? A bright torch sure would be nice! Now I don’t mean to scare you, but flashlights are also a very useful – and often overlooked – method of self-defense. Walking alone in the dark and someone’s getting dangerously close? Shine that light in their eyes and stun them while you make your escape. There are endless reasons to always keep a flashlight on you. Don’t take any chances out there!
How To Choose The Best Flashlight
You might think that owning a flashlight is useless: in most cases, you can just use your phone in a pinch, right? Well, it depends. Using the torch function on your smartphone will eat away at the battery super quickly. It’s not really a long-term solution. The light is rarely bright enough for what you need it and you don’t want to risk your phone dying in the middle of an emergency call. Edc flashlights are inexpensive, sturdy, and reliable, so the pros of owning one definitely outweigh the cons. The first thing to decide on when buying a flashlight is how big you want it to be. From small and light pocket torches to tactical, heavy-duty pieces of kit, you are bound to find one that perfectly fits your needs and your lifestyle. The next important thing to decide is how bright you want it to be. If I were you, I’d get the brightest one I could find. How many times have you heard someone complain about a torch being too bright? Yeah, never. However, having a flashlight with a lackluster beam is disappointing and frustrating, so you have nothing to lose by opting for the most powerful one you can get your hands on. Anywhere between 250-1000 lumens is good; don’t go any lower than that! The best edc flashlight is one that you can use over and over and over again without worrying about changing the batteries or recharging it. Great battery life is definitely a feature to look out for! Couple it with impressive LED bulbs and you’ll have the might of light at your fingertips!
