Rechargeable flashlights are becoming popular in recent times, especially since the technology around rechargeable batteries has improved since their early days. The up-and-coming rechargeable flashlights have instigated much debate as to which type of flashlight, rechargeable or non-rechargeable, is the better type of flashlight for EDC use, emergency use, and camping purposes.
Modern rechargeable flashlights have improved to the point that they have the edge in performance, longevity, and reliability over the more common non-rechargeable flashlights. Both technologies work well, and there are applications where both would be the right choice for a flashlight.
In order to establish which of these flashlight technologies provide the best benefits for use in the field, and even for use around the house, we need to take a closer look at both of these flashlight powering technologies and examine what benefits one can offer over the other for each type of use. This will give you the knowledge you need to choose the best lighting option for your particular requirement.
Rechargeable flashlights in their early days had some flaws that seem to have set a mental precedent about what people come to expect from a rechargeable flashlight. Those early days of the rechargeable flashlight did not give the reputation of this technology much to brag about, but much has changed since those times!
Historically, rechargeable flashlights were not very reliable; they did not hold their charge very long, they were bulky, and they took a long time to recharge. Many of these aspects relating to rechargeable flashlights have changed with the advances made in battery and LED technology.
These technological advancements have changed the playing field as far as rechargeable flashlights go, but is it enough to give the traditional battery-powered, non-rechargeable flashlights a run for its money? We will investigate the advances that rechargeable flashlight technology has made and compare them to the pros and cons of non-rechargeable technology to see which one would be the better fit for your requirements.
A rechargeable flashlight is a great concept and there are many benefits around this feature of the flashlight. There are numerous positives about this type of technology that is convincing many people to opt for the rechargeable version rather than traditional non-rechargeable flashlights.
As with any technology, rechargeable technology is not perfect; there are some disadvantages to rechargeable battery technology.
Standard battery-powered flashlights, or non-rechargeable flashlights, have been around for a long time, and we have relied on this technology to provide us with light very successfully for many years. As a result, there are still many advantages to using this technology to power your flashlight.
If you prefer to use non-rechargeable flashlights, take a look at our offering in this range with the STKR BAMFF 2.0 and 4.0 flashlights. They are bright, compact, durable, and rugged enough for all your outdoor activities!
Even though non-rechargeable flashlights have been around for some time and we have used this technology successfully for decades, there are some negatives for this solution.
Most of these negatives to non-rechargeable flashlights we have learned to work around and make preparations for. This means that most people have developed strategies to deal with the shortcomings of this technology and continue to use it.
Both rechargeable and non-rechargeable flashlights have relevant benefits and shortcomings, and for this reason, I prefer to have a belt-and-braces approach and use flashlights of both technologies. I will have a rechargeable headlamp but keep a non-rechargeable light in my backpack with spare batteries.
This way, you have options with the convenience of a rechargeable flashlight and the trusty non-rechargeable as a backup!
