Nowadays, cellphones conveniently have flashlight capability, but it drains the life out of its battery. How are you going to be able to make an emergency phone call or text if your phone’s battery is dead? It is wise to keep a good ol’ flashlight close by to light the way in this situation, but they are also useful around the house in the event of a power outage, at the campsite, or in the garage when you light up the space around your car’s belt drive. Flashlights from Anker, GearLight, and MagLite can brighten your world.

The Bolder rechargeable LC40 flashlight from Anker is one great illuminating option to brighten your space with its 400-lumen LED. While it does not have the 900 lumens of the Anker LC90 flashlight in this list, the Bolder has adjustability with the high, medium, low, strobe, and SOS modes. In medium mode, this flashlight is claimed to last 20 hours on the 3350mAh battery. If the flashlight does start to lose juice, you can recharge it using the micro USB cable. Maintain your hold on the flashlight with the anti-slip finish. Rest assured that if it does drop, it is shock resistant and is built with a durable aluminum casing.

The GearLight, too, has five modes (high, medium, low, strobe, and SOS). Water-resistant and durable with an aluminum body makes this flashlight appropriate for the rainy roadside emergency (because it always happens to rain when your tire decides to blow, right?).

After the six hours of battery life (in medium mode) has been used, recharging the tool is done by plugging in the micro USB cable into the port and power source.
