Top Flashlights of 2018
A Heinnie Haynes® Buying Guide
As we begin to emerge from the dark days of the end of 2017, we’re looking back on some of our favourite flashlights which made the grade last year, and which would lighten up your life in the year ahead.
It’s amazing how useful these handheld lamps are, whether you’re out walking the dog, or checking stock in the warehouse at work. Make sure you have one of these lamps on your belt or in your bag by this time next week.
Is this the brightest lamp available for sale in the UK? At 32,000 lumens there’s a fair chance that you’ll be the brightest beacon in your street.
If you own this lamp, you’re in some good company. It’s one of our strongest sellers. With 1,000 lumens from just one standard 18650 battery this is a really useful backup lamp.
We love the magnetic charging system on this lamp – it’s really a no-bother lamp. Pop it on the base when you get back home and it’s good to go next time. Packing 3,200 lumens it’s very bright.
If you have a USB phone charger, you can recharge this torch. Using a through-the-tail USB connection, the switch glows green to show when it’s fully charged. 1,000 lumens.
It’s not until you carry a keyring lamp that you wonder how you managed without it. From finding your way back to the car after work to looking for a lost shoe under the stairs. Here’s a small selection of the array of keyring lights available on Heinnie.com®.
Tiny, rechargeable and waterproof, this USB-rechargeable lamp is your handy friend. Recharge from your office computer in 45 minutes, and you’ll be good to go at the end of the day. 130 lumens.
Photon Freedom Micro
The original coin cell tiny flashlight. So compact, so handy. Squeeze it to operate and find that lost coin at the bottom of your backpack, or lock it on for continuous use. 4.5 lumens.
In a body not much bigger than your little finger, this USB-rechargeable lamp in a copper finish will add a touch of elegance to your key chain. 130 lumens.
There’s something about this lamp that says “you want me” – perhaps it’s the tiny but chunky size, perhaps it’s the easy-recharging dock, or maybe it’s the 900 lumens it puts out. Just a lovely little lamp.
Everybody needs a light around the house “just in case”, whether that’s by the fuse box for a quick re-set, or by the back door to nip out to the bins. Check out this small selection of the range available at Heinnie.com®
There’s something about the Big Larry that makes you want to have it! The top of the lamp lights up with a bar of light, to illuminate a room with 400 lumens of white light. There’s a low-power 160 lumen mode and a red flash for roadside breakdowns.
This is Big Larry’s little brother – just as useful in a pen-sized package. Like its big brother, it has three lighting modes, topping out at 250 lumens, with a magnetic base and is water and impact resistant.
The iProtec Night Commander is a rugged 3-in-1 LED light featuring a 250-Lumen flashlight, a bright 220 Lumen work light and an intense red light. Its unique design allows the light head to turn to a right angle. The magnetic base and steel clip provide convenient hands free lighting
This USB-rechargeable lantern can stand up, be suspended on a hanging loop, stick on with its magnet or stand on a tripod. Using LEDs for its light source, this lantern throws out an impressive amount of light, 350 lumens in turbo mode, or a very low night light mode.
Probably the most practical type of lamp that you can own. If you’ve never experienced the freedom given by a lamp worn on your head, treat yourself now. From walking down dark lanes to digging round in the boot of the car, head lamps give you amazing hands-free versatility.
An extremely bright 1,000 lumen lamp is powered by its internal rechargeable battery (supplied) which can be charged in-place via a micro USB ports. Featuring five brightness levels plus location beacon, strobe and SOS modes, the HC60 head torch has been purpose designed for hiking, climbing, camping and general outdoor use.
Petzl e+ Lite
Ultra-light and very compact, the Petzl e+LITE emergency headlamp should always be with you. Thanks to its carry case, it is always ready to use and can be stored with its batteries for ten years in a backpack, a jacket, or an emergency kit, or used as a back-up headlamp. Its white or red, continuous 50-lumen lighting or strobe lighting helps you to be seen.
A rechargeable head lamp outputting 950 lumens and supplied with a rechargeable battery which can be charged in around 4 hours. With 5 brightness levels and a red light output operated from the side button, this lamp is waterproof to two metres depth.
The party piece of the lamp is its 1,000 lumen spotlight beam. Now you have no excuse for losing Fido on your evening walk. This lamp also features a wide-angle beam for close work. USB rechargeable.
There are a few lamps which we rate highly, but which don’t fit neatly into these categories. Take a look at these lights, which are the Heinnie® favourites for 2018.
What a great little device this is! On one count it is a personal attack, 110 decibel alarm, it is also a flashlight with strobe function and it is an emergency power bank for your phone. This brilliant tool will deter unwanted attention and attract help with a simple press of a button. It could have a massive and potentially life saving impact.
MecArmy X7S Flashlight Lighter Capsule
This lamp is a thing of beauty, but not only that it is an extremely functional item with the kind of quality often only reserved for the likes of NASA! The precision machining is beyond belief. The XS7 is a 130 lumen flashlight, a petrol lighter and two ‘o’ ring sealed capsules for tinder.
Is it a lantern or a torch? We love the way that the diffuser rises up from the body of the lamp allowing the light to be focussed or diffuse. A surprisingly handy little lamp. Just don’t call it a lipstick! This is a light for men!
Traser H3 Trigalight are small, airtight sealed glass tubes coated on the inside with a luminous substance. The coating is “fired” with electrons emitted by the internal tritium gas which causes the layer to light up. All encased in a tough stainless steel container – attach this to your keychain or bag zip to find them swiftly in the dark.
