Be it natural disasters or household emergencies, or maybe you frequently camp outside in the woods or you just need some outdoor lighting or maybe you are an underwater night diver, a spotlight is a life saving and/or changing equipment. This is not just an exaggeration, but a fact. Most of us who had been in these situations had more than once appreciated the spotlight that we had in our hands in the same night, right?
Use and need of spotlights
In addition to the different situations mentioned above, there are custom needs too for different people and it is not astonishing to find that there is a spotlight that meets every single need that one has. There is a spotlight for each and every unique need.
Handheld Spotlight for Use Underwater
The use of handheld spotlights can be different as we mentioned above. Especially at night, the need often is to illuminate an area for rescue operations, or directing crowd or people away from danger or towards relief. Often a simple handheld rechargeable spotlight helps you stay clear and away from danger and move directionally towards civilization when stranded in woods. Many deep sea divers take spotlights with them as sunlight often does not reach those depths due to the total internal reflection phenomenon observed in the water.
Each and every situation has its own needs of spotlights. So, when you buy one, make sure that it meets your needs. If the situation is an outdoor camping or excursion/hiking, it might be a good idea to get a handheld lightweight spotlight which enables you to replace rechargeable batteries so that long runs away from power outlets keep you powered. The choice might be personal, when buying a spotlight but most of the present designs are ergonomic enough to be handled easily by most users.
Spotlights options available
The choice on types of spotlights should not be limited to ergonomics, but also consider choice of bulbs. There are a lot to choose from - LEDs, Halogen and Fluorescent. The choice depends on personal favoritism and also need based. LED spotlights are the latest trend and they consume less power than the other types, but halogen spotlights tend to be the brightest available yet.
There are handheld spotlights ranging from 1 million candle power to over 50 million candle power. Sometimes it might go over that, but standard products are in the range mentioned. A normal use spotlight might be powerful enough to be categorized in 3-5 million candlepower range, but specific needs might need higher powered ones.
