Why You Should Always Carry a Flashlight

Why You Should Always Carry a Flashlight
  • Opening Intro -

    Flashlights can be used for a variety of purposes, and you never know when you might run into a situation where you need one.

    Having a high powered LED flashlight on you can help make it easier to find things or to use as a safety tool in case of emergencies.


Although you likely have a light on your mobile phone, it is not as effective and as quick to turn on as an actual flashlight. Also, having the light on your phone turned on for long periods of time can quickly run down the battery.

If you are not currently carrying a flashlight with you everyday, read on to see why you should have one with you one hand at all times.

Finding Items

Whether you lose your phone or other small items, a high-powered flashlight can be the difference in finding it.

Dropping your phone in between car seats or in a darkened area can cause a stressful situation, and when you lose your phone, this takes away being able to use the flashlight on your phone to find it.

If you lose something small, such as jewelry or coins, it can be difficult to find only using the weak flashlight on your phone. A high quality flashlight can help brighten up larger areas and lead to you getting your jewelry back.

Power Outages

Tornados, hurricanes, floods, and fires can all cause power outages, and being in the dark can make these hazards even more dangerous. A flashlight can help you navigate your way out of the building or away from the hazard. Even in non-emergency situations, a blackout can be very inconvenient.

A flashlight that’s on you and easy to locate can make it easier to find lanterns or help try to get your power back on. During power outages, it is especially important to have a flashlight with a long run time.

Although your phone could temporarily light up the space you are in, this will quickly run out the battery. You may also need to use your phone during a power outage, so keep the lighting to a flashlight that can last through the outage.


You never know when you could find yourself walking down a darkened street or alley. A tactical flashlight with a fast reaction time can help quickly light up your surroundings. The light from a flashlight is easier to deploy than trying to get the light from your phone to turn on.

In emergency situations, you can use the light to temporarily blind your threat. Unlike pepper spray or other weapons, you can carry a flashlight anywhere and it doesn’t have the risk of accidentally harming anyone.
