Thread: I need a job light- Checklist inside

  1. #1

    Default I need a job light- Checklist inside

    1) How would you prefer to purchase the light?
    ____I will be mail-ordering or buying online, so this doesn't matter.


    2) Budget: An easy question, but you may change your mind after answering the rest! :-)

    ____Less than $100.



    3) Format:

    ____I want a flashlight.



    4) Flashlight-specific format/size:

    ____Every day carry medium (4-7 inches).


    5) Emitter/Light source:

    ____I don't know.


    6) Manufacturer:

    ____I want to buy a light from a traditional mass producing manufacturer that is ready to go out of the box.



    7) What battery type do you want to use?

    ____I intend to use lithium primary batteries (CR123, CR2, Energizer Advanced/Ultimate Lithium AA/AAA)


    8) How much genuine out the front (OTF) light do you want/need? Sometimes you can have too much light (trying to read up close up with a 100 lumen light is impossible).

    ____I want to illuminate my entire backyard or a campsite (150-300 lumens).



    9) Throw vs. Flood: At what distance will you be most likely to use this light? Select all that apply.

    ____5-20 yards/meters (check out a noise in the backyard)



    10) Runtime: Not over-inflated manufacturer runtime claims, but usable brightness measured from first activation to 50% with new batteries (Measured on maximum output).
    ____90-120 minutes (Runtime is moderately important, but still not critical)


    11
    ) Durability/Usage: Generally the old phrase “you get what you pay for” is very accurate for flashlights.
    ____Very Important (Camping, Backpacking, Car Glove-box)

    12) Switch Type and location (choose all that apply):
    ____I want a tail mounted switch (found on the majority of today’s high end lights).


    13) User Interface (UI) and mode selection. Select all that apply.
    ____I want multiple light levels. (Some lights have 5-16 light levels.)
    ____I want a programmable light.
    ____I want a strobe mode. (Blinks to show location.)
    ____I don’t care.


    14)Material/Finish/Coating
    ____I don’t care.

    15) Special Needs/extras: Is there anything else you want or need that hasn't been mentioned? Select any below.
    ____Pocket/belt clip, or sheath
    ____Non-sparking Intrinsically Safe (IS) for use in explosive environments (not a must, but would be nice)


    For those that don`t want to read the checklist, I need a light for work. I work on an LNG (Liquid natural gas) Ferry as an engineer. I need a light for lighting up all those dark corners. I`d want a pocket clip. I wear working pants or an overall most of the time, a belt seath would be uncomfortable. Clicky is a must, and I`d like to use rechargeble batteries.
