A torch is an important tool of everyday use that people often overlook. We used to think that torches were only useful at night while camping or in places without electricity – and were often a hindrance to pack as they were so bulky with the spare brick-size or D cell batteries they used to require.
Previous technology had us believing that the heavier the torch, the brighter it was. Fast forward to today – brands such as Olight have revolutionised torches to be much brighter, lighter and more durable than ever. The advancement is amazing, and it is not uncommon now to carry a torch all the time. For example, the Olight i3S(weighing 11g, 7cm long and available in bright, fun colours) is not only great as an accessory but also shines a huge beam reaching almost 40m.
In this day and age torches do not only have one purpose. Most torches can be used for everything including (but not limited to); hunting, camping, boating, self-defence, hiking, emergencies and everyday use– making them invaluable to have accessible all the time. This is mainly because of their heavy duty design, lightweight materials, multiple modes, standard accessories and extended battery life.
Manufacturers are proud of their brand, and most offer warranties of two years. Though please be aware, as with any investment – the key to a long torch life is also how it is cared for. An easy maintenance routine from time to time with ensure the torch is at is best for a very long time. Below are some steps on how to care for your torch.
