flashlight

A battery powered light. Usually the bulb is an LED (Light-Emitting Diode) or group of LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes), but older styles may use a small incandescent bulb. An LED is preferable since it will not burn out and it generates more light for the same amount of power.

  1. Small flashlights fit on a keychain to help you find the lock hole in the dark.
  2. Flashing lights you attach to pedestrians, bicycles and pets to make them more visible at night.
  3. Medium size flashlights let you examine the inside of computers.
  4. Full size flashlights let you find your way in the dark.
  5. Supersize flashlights let you illuminate a campsite/tent for many hours. Often gas-powered lanterns are used instead for this purpose.
