My flashlights. From bottom to top: Maglite 4 d, Minimag 2AA and versatile Romisen RC-K4.
Nest post I will try to pass some information regarding this essential item in the backpack of any adventurer, while meet the models that I use.
Flashlights are versatile, and can mean the difference between life and death in an emergency situation. Serve for guidance in unknown terrain at night, and also for signaling. Some models allow other uses (see the end). Due to technological advances, small and powerful models are found on the market, and can be carried always in everyday life. Yes, because emergencies don’t mark time, and a large equipment or awkward just sitting at home, while a small and light going all over the place and will be present when needed.
Traditional lanterns use incandescent bulbs. Still are very reliable when made for good brands, but consume a lot of energy, requiring more batteries. Reserve lamps are required, as well as spare batteries. Still have hardened defenders, that lay confidence in them for decades.
My Representative in this category is the traditional Mini Maglite of 2 AA batteries (small). She loads in your extra lamp cover. Is my reliable backup if all others fail. Always accompanied by alkaline batteries that last longer.
The classic Mini Maglite and two AA batteries that feed.
Modern LED flashlights, emit a stronger light and white and spend a lot less batteries, but tend to diminish the perception of depth. Also tend to be small. Beware of cheap copies, most uses a set of common and LEDs do not produce a lot of light. CREE LEDs, on the other hand, are unique and electronics, generating a really strong light and excellent range. Are the LEDs fitted to the famous tactical flashlights, unanimity among officers of teams SRT (Special Response Team), also known as SWAT. There are conversion kits of incandescent to LED available for some of the best-known brands.
My choices in this category are: the still relatively unknown Romisen RC-K4, which can work with 3 types of batteries (AAA, 3 2 CR123 or 1 18650) and provides 140 lumens in a tactical format portable enough, with quality and reliability of lanterns “designer”, 10 times more expensive. Beyond a Maglite 4 D batteries of (large) who received a CREE LED kit manufactured by Terralux with 140 lumens of power. The Romisen come with me full time, while the Maglite became my flashlight more powerful and at the same time the autonomy, used in campsites and rural areas in General. Interesting also cite the Stream light Nano, which I’ve been handing out for some people. Amazing how something so small that if uses hanging in the locksmith and feeds on 4 watch batteries is capable of generating 10 lumens! This is a very interesting option to always be around.

Survival Tip: the Mini Maglite can be used to light a fire. Maybe some other brand as well, but I don’t know. Here’s how: steel wool ignites with any spark or even with the short a short stack. With the Maglite loaded, a small piece of wire and steel wool, a mere touch starts the fire. See the string and give it a try!

Without the lamp, the holes of the two poles are exposed. The lamp appears in the background.
Two pieces of a filament in each pole. To touch the short straw.
The moment of contact. Instant fire.
A breath is enough to the fire to intensify. At this point it would only feed the fire.
