Flashlights have come a long way in the last 70 years. They used to have an incandescent bulb, and 2 D batteries. The batteries would leak throughout the flashlight as it sat in a drawer for a few months. This would destroy your torch. Sometimes the battery company would replace your flashlight if it was ruined by a leaky battery.
Today we have:
LED bulbs, which are brighter than incandescent bulbs.
CREE bulbs, which are brighter LED bulbs.
COB bulbs (chip on board) which are really bright.
