It happens to us all the time-dark scenarios that catch us at the most unexpected times. We all know how much of a hassle it is to not see anything, not to mention dangerous especially if you are in an unfamiliar neighborhood.
You would think carrying a flashlight would become too inconvenient if done daily but not anymore. Before, carrying small small enough lights that can fit unobtrusively in pockets was almost useless-because of the quality of light they provide. Today, flashlights have become smaller, while all the while being brighter. The small flashlights of today give the large flashlights of yesterday a run for their money.
Such are considered by many as LED emergency flashlights. Now, why LED and why emergency? LEDs have literally made standard halogen bulbs obsolete in the flashlight world. LEDs are more efficient in that they consume less power, last for often a lifetime, and can produce as much light (if not stronger) as their halogen and incandescent counterparts. They are also good for emergency situations because some only use single triple-A batteries wherein the whole torch is just slightly larger than the battery itself.
Now carrying that small of an object would not be as much of a hassle. In fact, some are even marketed as keychains. If you bring your keys anywhere you go, then so does your emergency light.
The trick with getting a quality emergency LED flashlight is to familiarize yourself with approved brands. The problem is, rarely do these brands reach mainstream markets and shopping centers because they are still considered novelty items. Sure they are a tad bit expensive considering they are just flashlights, but you will certainly be surprised with their power once you open them.
