6 Illuminating Torches to Light Your Way

The “Flashlight”

As long ago as 1899, the invention of the dry-cell, and miniature incandescent electric lightbulbs, made the first battery-powered torches possible.

Early flashlights ran on zinc-carbon batteries, which could not provide a steady electric current and required periodic “rest” to continue functioning.[1] Because these early flashlights also used energy-inefficient carbon-filament bulbs, “resting” occurred at short intervals. Consequently, they could be used only in brief flashes, hence the common North American name “flashlight”.[2]  (Wikipedia)

So, “How Many Torches do I need?” This question burns brightly on internet chatrooms.  You might like to think you only need one – until you realise how many there are and how a particular design characteristic will make a new torch essential for the job at hand.

I need a torch for…

  1. The Car48217_kr-led
    Your definitely need a torch for the car.  One for each car.  And for each tractor.  Something with a lithium battery that’s ready when you need it.  Small enough to fit in the glove box, this LED Key Ring Torch from Draper is just £2.39 

  2. Breakdownswl-3-emergency-working-light
    The Emergency Working Light from Cluson should also be a definite for the car.  With so many functions including a hanging LED so you can inspect under the bonnet, and a flashing emergency light to warn others that you’ve broken down, this versatile torch is a great tool to keep you safe.

  3. The Caravanltn-2-10x8
    Have you ever tried to sit around the table and play cards by torch?  It doesn’t really work, does it.  When you are off the grid, or if the power is out at home, a camping lantern can shed its light all around and allow you to enjoy a comfortable evening.  Also super-handy if you are off out on a fishing trip. £5.99 each

  4. pl-1-pocket-lightPocket Torch
    A small light for Every-Day-Carrying and night stand duty: an EDC torch needs to be robust and portable.  It should help you see in the dark, in tight spaces, or under the sofa – and you might even find it handy to blind an attacker if you’re ever in trouble.  Cluson’s Individual Pocket Light has a wrist-strap, as well as a handy pocket-clip and projects an incredible 150m beam from a single AA battery.  Only £7.14 

  5. Head torchdraper-07190-head-torch-300
