When you’re as enthusiastic about professional use LED flashlight design as we are, the differences between various models jump out at you. However, if you’re not a complete LED gadget geek, it can be difficult to sift through the different flashlight features and advantages. Fortunately, we have an easy solution – rather than pulling your hair out over LED research, just read our handy table below.
