If you’re shopping for an LED flashlight to take out into the wilderness with you, it’s important to choose a model that can withstand getting a little wet. While many manufacturers may claim their flashlights are waterproof, however, there’s no way to tell whether those assertions have any truth – unless you choose an LED torch that’s been tested according to the voluntary FL1 Standards.
The FL1 Standards provide guidelines for how LED flashlights are tested and rated, so consumers can make accurate comparisons between models. By choosing a torch that has been rated for water resistance according to the FL1 Standards, you can rest assured that the product will deliver on the manufacturer’s claims. If the FL1 Standard logo is missing from your LED flashlight, then it’s impossible to validate how its water resistance was tested.
