Flashlights are amazing. Of course they’ll help light your surroundings in times of darkness—whether because it’s night out, because a natural disaster is going on, or because everything is blackened with soot—but they will also provide you with an extra form of security and confidence against the threat of coming catastrophe.
How can you know which model of flashlight to purchase? Well, here are some of our best choices.
1- Inforce Weapon Mounted Light
This mounted light is excellent for use at close or mid-range. The white lighting it offers comes in three modes: high, low, and strobe. It’s also waterproof, and its activation button allows you to access it with no problems.
2- The Pelican 2780 Headlamp
This headlamp is a great selection if you’re hiking or backpacking at night-time. It offers dual-beam tech, which allows you to illuminate both the area in front of you and the ground at your feet. On battery-saving mode, the power lasts for some 12 hours.
3- Surefire Millennium Tactical Weapons Light
A tactical flashlight can be a great choice for many people, especially families. Such flashlights will replace the hand-guard of your gun—and the Millennium is no exception. It also features a locking mechanism, and the light is so strong that it can blind an attacker.
4- SureFire P2ZX Fury Combat Light
This light is small enough to fit in your pocket—and compact enough so that it can do so comfortably—but strong enough to be of use in any kind of disaster. It also features a grip ring, made out of rubber, which will ensure that it doesn’t fall out of your hands by mistake.
5- Pelican Waterproof Lightcase
This case is a good choice if you’re hiking in swampy or muddy areas, or if you’re going fishing. You can store stuff inside the case, but it also functions as a lantern for night-time activities. It’s a good choice for emergency lighting as well.
6- Brite-Strike Blue Dot
This flashlight was made for usage by military agents, security personnel, and law enforcement officers. With its strong light and wide beam, it will allow you to clearly illuminate the way. Furthermore, it’s ergonomic and highly durable.
7- Secur Emergency Flashlight and Power Bank 500
This LED flashlight features a seat-belt cutter and a window breaker. It also includes a battery backup, which can be used for this flashlight, in addition to small electronic equipment like your cell phone and GPS system.
8- Streamlight Sidewinder Compact Military Light
This flashlight can be used without the use of your hands. The head tilts for better mobility, and its lights are available in different colors. A lightweight product, you can easily transport it anywhere, as well as reposition it so that you have more lighting when you’re working on something (e.g., building a shelter).
9- Coleman Battery Lock Divide
This models in this series are a great choices because, not only are they excellent flashlights in general, but their twistable tops function as a safety lock, so that you can’t accidentally turn them on. This is a great way of saving energy from your batteries.
10- Streamlight Super Tac X LED Tactical Flashlight
This flashlight features strong LED tech; it’s so strong that the lights last 50,000 hours (in other words, enough to power you for five years—if you kept it on every single hour of the day). You can use it with one hand.
