Torches are commonly known as flashlights
. They are portable electric light sources usually emitted by incandescent bulbs or LED (light-emitting Diode). A torch basically consists of a light source, reflector, transparent lens cover, grip handle, a switch, and a battery. Traditional troches use disposable dry cells to power up the light of the bulb. Modern torches have rechargeable internal batteries
, which include recharging from solar power. Torches can be adapted to promote convenience in their application areas, and this includes waterproof head-helmeted torches that ar great for marine, mining, and military operations. Torches are made of materials such as vulcanized rubber, copper, brass, steel silver, plastic, and aluminum. The application area of a torch is determined by its lumens number. Low lumen torches are suitable for close-range uses such as finding keyholes and walking in the dark. Weapon flashlights are made from torches with more than 100 lumens while torches with over 1000 lumens are applied outdoor for diving, search and rescue operations, and night orienteering.
