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.
Engraved flashlights by Starline were a big hit at the OPPA product show in Cleveland Ohio. The promotional product show on January 25 was exclusively for distributors of business gifts.
A powerful torch, and big seller, is this FL129 by Starline. It is super bright (250 lumens, and utilizes the COB (chip on board) technology. When you pull out the head, it shows the alternate flood light. A swivel neck, and magnetic base make this work light a winner.
Doug Oslance, the Regional Sales Manager is demonstrating it for me.
Most powerful LED flashlight made by Maglite® is a staggering 643 lumens bright.
You may find a flashlight with more lumens, but not this powerful. What gives the RL1019 so much power? The fact that it is rechargeable anywhere. You can charge it in any room of your house or garage. You can even charge it in your car or boat or RV. With the wall bracket, it remains ready whenever you are.
Another powerful feature is the availability of 4 function sets. Choose a function set that you like, and your torch will give you 3 different outputs. The General function set has Full Power, Low Power, and Eco. The Outdoor function set has Full Power, Low Power, and Strobe. The Law Enforcement function set has Momentary, Full Power, and Eco. The Tactical function set has Momentary, Full Power, and Strobe. When you buy one, it comes with the default General function set, but you can change it to one of the others if you want to.
