LED hand torch buyer’s guide

LED hand torches come in a range of shapes and sizes and are kind of essential for your DIY toolkit. You may or may not use a torch very often, but it’s always good to have one to hand, especially if you have a power cut and your phone has no charge.

When it comes to choosing a torch, there are a few things worth considering.

The lumens rating

The brightness of an LED torch is measured in lumens. So when you’re looking at specs, torches with a high lumens number provide a brighter light than torches with a low lumens number.

Typically, lumens ratings range from anywhere between 12 and 1500 so you have plenty of options to choose from. If you shop around, you can find torches higher than 1500 lumens but for doing DIY jobs around the home, you shouldn’t need one that bright.

Battery powered or USB rechargeable?

While many modern torches are powered in the traditional way – by AA, AAA or other types of battery – there’s an increasing number of USB rechargeable torches on the market.
