Police Torches Guide

01 Aug, 2022

Police torches are fundamental to the role as a police officer. The importance of a torch to a police officer who is often on night duty cannot be overstated. Whether it's a night patrol, a car emergency or a power outage, you can't do without a torch.

If you are a police officer, you will appreciate how important a good torch is to you. There is no doubt that Olight can be one of your choices!

Key takeaways choosing a police torch:

1. Reliability: Long run-time and Rechargeable batteries. The longest battery life of Olight's torch can reach 15 days.

2. Powerful: brightneess. The first and most important characteristic of a police torch is powerful brightness.

What are lumens?

The brightness of lights is usually measured in lumens. Lumens are a measure of the total amount of visible light to the human eye from a lamp or light source. This means that generally speaking the more lumens, the brighter the flashlight.

Our torches have powerful performance, one of which has an 800-meter spotlight beam and a 14,000-lumen floodlight beam.

3. Light options: Different levels of outputs can be accessed comfortably and efficiently.

4. Waterproof: A good police flashlight should be water-resistant so that you can still use it when it rains. Our torches are waterproof up to IPX8.
