When you're in the market for a new flashlight, headlamp, or lantern, you need to consider factors like size, durability, battery power, and price.

But there's probably nothing more important to your choice than its brightness, typically measured in lumens.

Think about how you'll use your new light and choose something that's bright enough for your needs — but remember that higher lumens require more power and tend to drain your battery faster, so more isn't always better.

Here's how many lumens you'll need for various tasks and a few of our favorite options in each category.
