How to choose the best handheld torch or flashlight

Flashlight torches come in a huge range of shapes, sizes and capabilities, so knowing which one is best for you can sometimes be a little bit tricky. Here's a look at what to consider when choosing a torch or flashlight:

Light output

Light output is measured in lumens, so the higher the lumens, the brighter the light. While this is a good indication of how effective the torch will be, bear in mind that lumens just measure the brightness of the beam - not the beam distance. Many torches will show both the lumens and the beam distance, so it's a good idea to take note of both.

Battery type and run time

Run time and battery type can vary significantly between brands and models. While a longer run time will nearly always be preferable, various battery types will suit different people. For example, rechargeable batteries can be really convenient - but consider whether a single charge will suffice for each use or if you're able to recharge them if needed. In certain situations, such as multi-day hikes, you may need more than one charge, and in this situation, a torch with single-use batteries or a dynamo flashlight torch may be preferable.

Size and weight

The best size and weight for you will depend on how you'll be using your torch. If it's an emergency torch for blackouts, sometimes a larger, highly visible torch can be better. However if you're looking for a torch you'll be carrying in a backpack, you'll want to keep it as small and lightweight as possible without compromising the run time or light output you need.
