When you are buying a good flashlight, the first thing you need to check is its quality and standard. The American National Standards Institute approved a specification standard for flashlights in 2009, when the ANSI FL1 has become the quality checker for flashlight buyers.
This standard helps consumers make decision wisely when choosing a good flashlight. The ANSI ensures the flashlight has a good lumen, beam distance, beam intensity, impact resistance, and durability. We are one of the professional manufacturers who follow ANSI FL1 standards.
The lumen of the flashlight
The lumen is simply the measurement of the total amount of light that comes out of the flashlight. People tend to confuse lumen with wattage, which is the amount of power used by the light. The higher the lumen output your flashlight has, the more overall light the flashlight produces. Most flashlights range between 20 lumens (which is quite low and is great for reading books in the dark) to 1000-2000 lumens. Some flashlights make even higher lumen claims, but to adequately and efficiently reach anything brighter for a reasonable amount of time (more than short bursts), the flashlight becomes quite large due to required heat sinks and batteries to support such power. Most flashlights have variable lumen output levels, so it’s best to look for one with this feature. This will give you the ability to choose the lumen output depending on the situation. These flashlights are so bright, high power may drain a battery fairly quickly, so variable modes are important to give the user options that will prolong use between battery charges or swaps. When dealing with the light output, there are three factors that you will need to pay attention to in this category - beam distance, beam type, and LED color temperature.
