Portable Lights: An Overview of Various Light Sources

Light is necessary for just about everything we do in our daily lives. Imagine trying to cook, clean, or work without light. Portable light sources can be extremely useful for hobbies and as a backup in case of a blackout or other emergency situation. There a few portable light sources that will work well in any kind of setting:

• Flashlights
• Lanterns
• Clip-on Lights
• Lighted Hats

Any of these will make good choices. Keep reading for more information about each option.

Flashlights and Lanterns
A lantern is a stable platform that contains a single light and usually a hood or spotlight of some kind to disperse the light it gives off. It usually comes with a handle so it can be carried around, and generally runs off a large number of batteries to maintain the bright light that it gives off.

A flashlight is a lot like a lantern with the exception being that it is design specifically for being carried around easily. It doesn’t have the hood to disperse the light like a lantern but they tend to act more small spotlights. They also use batteries but usually in smaller quantities than the lantern.

Clip-On Lights
These lights are small and powerful LEDs. Clip-on lights come in all shapes and sizes but the vast majority of them are small enough to fit into a pocket. They usually run on smaller batteries and can be attached via magnets or strong alligator clips, making them the perfect accessory for someone who needs a small portable light source at their disposal, but cannot be bothered with some of the more cumbersome units available.

Lighted Hats
One of the more unique forms of a portable light source is the various head ware with lights ingrained into their design. A common example is a standard miner’s hard hat with a light on the front; however, today you can purchase baseball style caps and beanies with similar light technology! These give you the convenience of being able to see in the dark while having your hands free.
