Why Choose a AAA Torch?
AAA torch are some of the most popular lights currently on the market today; however, many users are asking why. Why are these small, low-output torch dominating the industry when there are bigger, more powerful options out there? We took a step back from our normal platform of 'bigger is better' and broke down the reasons why these AAA flashlights are just so popular.
When comparing AAA batteries with other non-rechargeable cells on the market, you will quickly see that the AAA is one of the smallest available. As a result, torches that are powered by AAA batteries are able to be much smaller and more compact. AAA torches are therefore predominately used as everyday carry lights. In fact, the average length of our AAA torches is just four inches long! A four-inch-long EDC light is the perfect size for sliding into your pocket or for storing in your bag. These alkaline-powered lights are available in a variety of styles as well, including as penlights and as keychain lights. The small-sized battery gives users the ability to carry an illumination tool with them at all times, without being weighed down or feeling uncomfortable. Sure, some of the larger lights have pocket clips, but are you really going to hold a ten-inch-long light on your hip?
One of the biggest selling features of AAA torches is the convenience of finding replacement batteries. You can find these power cells at many different locations from hardware stores to local convenience stores. Many households already have a stash of AAA batteries hanging out in a drawer since many electronics use these batteries. Not only that, they're inexpensive as well. So having a flashlight that runs on AAA batteries is already very convenient. If a battery dies on you, you can very easily find another without having to break the bank.

Soft pressing the button allows for momentary light output that turns off when you release the switch and soft pressing in quick succession changes the brightness from low to high.
Fully press the button until a click is heard once you have selected low or high with the soft presses, or alternatively when you first fully turn the torch on it will come on in low and then if you quickly turn it fully off and on again within 2 seconds it will come on in high. If you turn it off and on again after 2 seconds has passed the light will default back to the low output.
The 15 lumen low mode is perfect if you need a small amount of light without disturbing others and that is why it is default to come on first. It is useful for reading at night or finding the key hole in the dark.
