For some people who like showing, their EDC products may be an expensive wristwatch or a well-made wallet. But for torch lovers, their EDC product is a unique torch.

 What are the most suitable EDC products for us? 

That is an interesting question. In our daily life, The most important factor in deciding to carry an item is whether or not the item is actually useful to us in our life.

Which items have the highest daily usage rate? I think the one that is used the most is the torch, except the normal stuff like keys, mobile phones and power banks.

Although the coverage area of public lighting facilities has been very wide. In fact, there are still many low-light environments in our life, such as common scenes, corridors and garages. A torch can provide us with lighting support in many low-light environments.

How To Choose The Olight Torches By Activity ?

How To Choose The Olight Torches By Activity ?

How to choose your right torch among so many torches?

It’s sure to say almost every household has a torch, but when it comes to the range of lighting products available, Torches widely used in professional fields such as outdoor, military, hunting, security, industry, does the one you buy really make a difference?


Basically, while all lighting products on the market provide lighting, their benefits vary greatly. Over the last few years, the selection of such products has increased in particular, so there are the points below that people usually consider when choosing which lighting product is best for themselves.

  1. Which activity will you be mostly using your lighting product for? E.g running at night, at home in case the power goes out, biking outside in bad light, etc


  1. Will you benefit more from a torch or headlight for your chosen activity? E.g it is uncomfortable to run holding a torch, so a headlight would be a stronger choice.


  1. Do you want a rechargeable or non-rechargeable product? E.g if you go camping there likely won’t be powerpoint to recharge, whereas at home this wouldn’t be an issue.

Therefore, when you visit our Olight UK website, you can choose Olight torches by activity.

First of all, Let's have a look at the activity categories that Olight’s products divide into.


Everyday Carry (EDC) 

♦ Most of us desire to make our home a familiar place, just put these best small torches on your desk, accompanying your daily life.


♦ Olight EDC torches (everyday carry) are quite popular for their lightweight and optional mode. Add to your cart, Olight EDC torches will be your top choice.

♦ Let alone the right-angle design, the Perun 2, "MUST BUY" HEAD TORCH is popular with its multifunctional application as a headlamp with a matching headband or as a handheld light.


Then, once you have a clearer idea of what style suits your personal situation, here are the most common terms that are used (and what they mean) to help you crystal your choice even more:


Lumens (lm) – The amount of light you see from a light source. The higher the lumen, the more brightness you will see.  E.g a 500lm torch will be brighter than a 200lm torch.


Beam Distance – This is measured in meters and is how far the light beam will shine before it starts to diminish. The distance will vary depending on which light mode you are in (low, mid, high, boost etc). The maximum beam distance a torch will usually be advertised next to the product.


Run time – The run time will be calculated by each individual setting in the product. So a low beam will have more run time and a high beam will have less run time, simply because you are needing more energy to create a brighter light and the battery will run low faster. The run time usually advertised is the run time when the torch is in low setting.


IP Rating – This is the protection the torch will have against dust and water. The first number will be the protection level against dust (6 is the highest) and the second number will be protected against water (9 is the highest), the higher the numbers, the better the protection.  If you see an X next to IP rating, as an example like IPX4, the X, in this case, represents dust as it is where the first number should be, and the X means this product does not have a rating for dust.


Now that you know everything you need to make the best choice, below are the 3 most common reasons people need to use a torch and our recommendations:


General Use around the home

Outdoor Use (riding bike, camping, climbing)

If you are looking for a light to use on adventures, or around campsites, you need a product that has long run time, is bright enough to light up anything in front of you, and something you can see far into the distance with.
