When the power goes out, the flashlights go on…if you have one handy. So, rather than being stuck in the dark, check out these five flashlights to see which light style matches your lifestyle.

1. J5 Tactical V1-PRO 300 Lumen Ultra Bright Flashlight

Tactical style is the hottest flashlight trend these days. The J5 serves up 300 lumens of super bright LED light and illuminates up to 600 feet away. It’s heavy duty and drop resistant, compact, and features a strobe setting that can be used to protect yourself by temporarily blinding attackers. Bonus: the mini size fits in the palm of your hand.

2. HeroBeam LED Lantern Flashlight

Trying to decide between a flashlight and a lantern? Get both with the HeroBeam. Pull up the top to make it a lantern or push it back down to make it a wide-angle flashlight. The lantern illuminates 360-degrees with advanced, super bright COB LEDS. Perfect for lighting a tent, caravan, boat, garage or shed. The rugged design is weather and shock resistant. And, it fits neatly in your backpack.

3. MalloMe 5000 LED Flashlight

Maybe the most versatile light on this list, the MalloMe 5000 LED Flashlight features five torch light modes powered by 500 lumens from high-efficiency, super bright LEDs. It’s also rechargeable via USB, wall plug and car charger. And, it’s water resistant, meaning you’ll be well-lit even in the rain.

4. MS Force & MS Force Mini Flashlights

The more flashlights you have, the easier they’ll be to find in an emergency. And here, you can get the MS Force and the MS Force mini for one low price. Both feature fantastically bright LED light, convenient tactical design, and a strobing function. It’s a pair of perfect all-purpose flashlights for in and out of the home. Keep one in the bedroom and one in the kitchen, or keep one in the house and one in the car.

5. Streamlight Stylus Pro Flashlight

Here’s the most lightweight flashlight we found. The Streamlight Stylus Pro is as small as a pen, but can still light up a room. It’s constructed from corrosion-resistant anodized aircraft aluminum. And, the attached holster clip keeps it secured to you, so it’s always there when you need it.
