Top-Rated Torches

Like if this guide is helpful
From simple, battery-powered devices to more complex rechargeable, programmable devices, torches are a niche market, and can come with a variety of features. While their use is mostly associated with camping and blackouts, flashlights are essential during many crises, and so it is important to have a high-quality one on hand. The user can tell a top-rated torch by how high its lumens and candela (or intensity), rating is and its beam distance. Another aspect to look for is the design, since most users want something small that can fit in a bag or pocket, many top-rated torches are small and compact. To find a top-rated torch at a budget price, the consumer can turn to eBay.
