Flashlights can be switched on and off as needed when users are working in dark or dim areas. They provide a portable, temporary light source when other lighting is unavailable or impractical. Use them to shine light into dark areas, to identify people at close range, to aid in searches and security patrols, and for other situations that require a compact light source the user can carry with them.
General purpose flashlights resist damage when dropped and can withstand rough use. They are commonly used in security operations and industrial settings.
Waterproof flashlights have an IPX7 or higher ingress-protection rating, which means they'll keep working even after being immersed in water. They are ideal for first responders, plumbers, construction workers, and others who work outdoors or in wet conditions.
Hazardous location flashlights are designed to provide light without igniting combustible gases, dust, or vapors that may be present in the work area. They are rated for use in specific hazardous environments such as chemical plants, refineries, mines, granaries, and harbors.
Rechargeable flashlights save users the hassle and expense of replacing the batteries in their flashlights. When not in use, connect them to an external power source to replenish their batteries so they'll be fully powered when needed.
