What material is the housing made of?
Does the torch work on solar energy, on replaceable batteries, or does it have a rechargeable battery?
How long does the battery last at maximum brightness?
Is the torch waterproof and/or shockproof?
How many lumens does the torch have?
Does the torch have several modes (e.g. dimming, flashing, SOS mode, etc.) and can you regulate the light beam?
Can you easily store the torch away, if needed?
How much does the torch weigh?

The lumen is the unit in which luminous flux is expressed. It measures the total amount of visible light that a light source emits in all directions.
If you are going to use your torch mainly for working at close quarters, then a lower brightness of up to 100 lumens is sufficient. If you need the beam to shine out far into the distance, choose a higher lumen output. How much light the torch gives off also depends on the size of the reflector. For example, a torch with fewer lumens but a larger beam may shine further than one with more lumens.
