Resource Center » How Does an LED Flashlight Work?

Discusses the components, features and benefits of using an led flashlight.

An LED flashlight is a portable, hand-held light source. All of the operating components are inside the center tube, and the switch powers the flashlight on and off. A reflector made from metal or plastic is mounted over the lamp portion of the light. The electrical current responsible for power depends on proper battery placement.

When LED flashlights are turned on, the filament casts a light that reflects away from the bulb, and the reflectors can focus and even magnify the light to project a stable beam. LED flashlights are often preferred because they have special features not found on standard flashlights. LED lights are often used in larger light fixtures and can be used as strobe lights. You get a stable, crisp light source from a battery powered LED flashlight that is much brighter than a standard bulb.

LED flashlights are perfect for camping or hunting trips; unlike a standard flashlight, they can send a concentrated beam of light that reaches a mile away. They are also durable under tough conditions! A standard flashlight might not be able to stand up to the challenges of the great outdoors; for example, it is more likely to fall apart if dropped while hiking along a rocky path. Also, standard flashlights' bulbs are easily broken and rendered completely useless if shattered. Most LED flashlights are made out of tough, durable resin that can stand up to drops or throws. The demand for reliable flashlights has resulted in a variety of different products, including a hands-free version with a head beam light.

Most flashlights will work for three to five hours depending on the life span of the batteries. LED flashlights can last much longer – up to 30 times longer! You could get 100 hours of light before needing to replace the batteries. Ultimately, LED flashlights save you money and make battery replacement a rarity.
