The flashlight is an essential item for home use and a vital tool of many industry professionals. At home, flashlights are useful for when power goes out, particularly in the event of a tornado or other natural disaster, while on the industrial side, everyone from electricians to law enforcement officials rely on portable light sources in order to do their jobs.

At Batteries Plus Bulbs, we offer a wide selection of different models, each with their own unique size, shape and brightness. Today, we’ll take a look at some of our top-selling models, as well as their ideal applications.

Pocket Flashlights

Pocket flashlights are ideal for everyday use. Their small size and lightweight construction are perfect for easy storage.

The Streamlight® Microstream® Flashlight is a highly portable model suited for maintenance workers, plumbers and other professionals in need of lightweight, subtle illumination. At 3.60 inches, it’s easy to carry and features a brightness of 45 lumens. There’s also a handy removable pocket clip than allows it to be clipped to the brim of a hat for convenient hands-free use.

For those looking for slightly more illumination, the NEBO® Inspector offers a brightness index of 180 lumens. It’s slightly bigger, with a 6-inch length (fully extended) and features a number of additional features. The light can be cycled between a low mode (54 lumens) and high mode (180 lumens), along with a strobe function (180 lumens) that cycles on and off rapidly.

This last mode is particularly useful for signaling someone in the event of an emergency or accident, making it ideal to carry in the glove box of a car. It also features a 3x adjustable zoom and is roughly the size of a standard pen, making it perfect as an inspection light.

Our final pocket model is the Coast® HP3R Rechargeable Focusing Penlight. This versatile light features a brightness of 245 lumens and can cycle between low (26 lumens) and high (245 lumens) output modes. It also features a simple twist focus that cycles from floodlight to spot beam. Best of all, the Flex Charge Dual Power system allows the flashlight to accept two separate modes of power. It can be easily recharged via a micro USB charging port, or run on traditional AAA or Lithium Polymer batteries, making it a perfect fit for a safety or storm prep kit.

Handheld Flashlights

We also feature a number of more powerful handheld varieties for those times when a pocket flashlight simply won’t do. These are especially useful in security or law enforcement applications that require a great illumination output along with a sturdy full-size construction.

The first of these is the NEBO® Redline® V. This model features a top illumination output of 500 lumens, with a 4x adjustable zoom, plus five separate light modes: low (50 lumens), medium (200 lumens), high (500 lumens), strobe, as well as a handy S.O.S. mode.

The strobe function can be used to distract potential attackers, making it ideal for self-defense or law enforcement use. It is also waterproof and impact-resistant, made of sturdy anodized aircraft-grade aluminum.

For those times when you need a whole lot of light power, we recommend the NEBO® Redline Big Daddy. This flashlight offers an impressive 2,000 lumen output, along with a 4x adjustable zoom and five separate light modes: low (500 lumens), medium (800 lumens) and high (2000 lumens), along with strobe and beacon modes.

The beacon mode is particularly useful for signaling others in the event of an emergency or car crash. In addition, the Big Daddy features an anti-roll tactical grip ring that allows it to be set down in a stationary position without fear of it rolling away.

Headlamps

Headlamps are the perfect tool for electricians, auto repair technicians and other professionals that work in dark areas, yet require the use of both hands.

The NEBO® Duo LED headlamp features a number of useful lighting modes, including a 250 lumens spotlight, an 80 lumen floodlight, a low-signature 10 lumen red light which helps enhance night vision and a strobing 10 lumen red light for emergencies. It’s also water and impact-resistant with a one-size-fits-all, dual adjustable head strap.
