With hundreds of available options, it can be hard to find the best flashlights. We tested 10 of the best keychain flashlights and found that some models, such as the Etekcity Max 82, exceeded our expectations. Our criteria for testing include durability (we tested water resistance and shock resistance), power output (we tested brightness with lux meters), and ease of use (we tested batteries with different voltages). We also evaluated how easy they are to charge, as well as their pocket friendliness. The flashlight market seems to be filled with lights that perform admirably, but our reviews cut through the noise and will help you figure out which flashlight fits your lifestyle and needs.

The team at Consumer Search has tested a large variety of products over the years, including scooters, vacuums, and power tools. If you're looking for a new way to get around, check out our reviews of the best hoverboards and best scooters.

OLIGHT i1R 2 EOS Desert Tan 150 Lumens Tiny Rechargeable Keychain Flashlight EDC LED Mini Keyring Light with Built-in Battery for Camping Hiking Dog Walking etc

by OLIGHT

EASY OPERATIONThe ON/OFF and mode change are controlled by twisting the light head. Twist it slightly to turn it on for 5 lumens, a bit more for 150 lumens.

Buying the right flashlight is no easy task. There are dozens of styles and features to choose from, and the price tags range from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars. If you're on a tight budget, or you just want a simple, no-frills flashlight, the Olight i1R 2 is a great buy. It has plenty of brightness, and its small size makes it easy to carry, even when you're hiking or camping. It's also extremely easy to use, and you don't have to disassemble the light to charge it. The i1R 2 is rechargeable, so it's inexpensive and convenient to replace lost batteries. The i1R 2 also has four light modes, so it's easy to find the light that's right for the job. Although the i1R 2 is bright, it's a bit dimmer than some other models, and the light tends to shine in unflattering directions. Still, for the price, it's the best EDC flashlight we reviewed.

by Jowbeam

Easy to use. Batteries installed, the batteries can be replaced if it out off power. Great Gift choice

This small keychain light is bright enough to light an entire room, but it packs a lot of power for its size. It can shoot out a strong beam and floodlight at the same time, and it has a wide angle, so you can illuminate a large area without shining in people's eyes. It has a convenient On/Off switch, a squeeze button, and a ring for hanging it from the bottom of your bag. This light has 3 modes: High, Low, and Strobe. The High mode is bright enough to light an entire room, the Low mode is bright enough for most indoor situations, and the Strobe mode is very bright, but it's a distraction, so we recommend leaving it off. This light has 100,000 hours of average life, and it's made from durable, water-resistant materials. It produces powerful, bright light, and it's a reliable, durable little light that's perfect for camping, hiking, and everyday use.
