Regardless of new technologies and the use of built-in flashlights in mobile phones, the old classics in this matter always remain in the priority. Flashlight is a must for tourism, minor repairs, and any action in low light or at night.
Types of flashlights
Depending on the scope of use and personal preferences, you can buy flashlight of these types :
- Flashlight-keychain: a compact version of the flashlight, which can be attached to the keys. More often such a flashlight cannot be called powerful, but it suffices to achieve certain goals (for example, to illuminate the keyhole). Value for money in this case fully justifies itself.
- Headlamp is very comfortable, since it frees both hands and does not interfere with work. Previously it was used only by miners and builders. Now they use it even while riding a bicycle.
- Hand lamp is the most common type of flashlight. There may be different types, shapes, power, depending on batteries. The choice depends entirely on tactile sensations.
- Lamp-flashlight is portable, often used in tourism. Has a handle for easy carrying, hanging. There are also more decorative views.
- Specialized flashlights (for diving, tactical lights, bicycles) - designed for use in narrow specializations.
- Working flashlights are used for night work or in low light conditions. Such situations are uncommon for pilots, so the flashlight should always be at hand.
