Flashlight Technology

This is a very large subject to cover in one post so I won’t. The technology changes in flashlights have been amazing. The LED bulbs are showing up every where from tail lights to flashlights. This is a good thing as these bulbs last longer and take less energy so batteries last longer. They are also much smaller, lighter and cooler. The LED has improved the headlamp too. Headlamps were bulky and sometimes too heavy to stay on your head. Now they are light and slim. If you are a backpacker this is a no brainer. When I hiked the Appalachian Trail I chose not to carry a flashlight as it would save weight. Instead I used my Bic lighter for light. If I were to hike it again I would carry the very light Micro LED.
