Torches and Lamps

A Flashlight or Torch is a hand-held portable electric-powered light source. Usually the light source is a small incandescent light bulb or light-emitting diode (LED). A typical flashlight consists of a light bulb mounted in a reflector, a transparent cover (sometimes combined with a lens) to protect the light source and reflector, a battery, and a switch. These are supported and protected by a case.
The invention of the dry cell and miniature incandescent electric light bulbs made the first battery-powered flashlights possible around 1899. Today flashlights use mostly incandescent lamps or light-emitting diodes and run on disposable or rechargeable batteries.
Some are powered by the user turning a crank or shaking the lamp, and some have solar panels to recharge a battery.
In addition to the general-purpose hand-held flashlight, many forms have been adapted for special uses.. Some flashlights can be used underwater or in flammable atmospheres.


Spotlighting or lamping  is a method of hunting nocturnal animals using off road vehicles and high-powered lights, spotlights , lamps or flashlights , that makes special use of the eyeshine revealed by many animal species. A further important aspect is that many animals (e.g. foxes and rabbits) often remain to continually stare at the light and do not appear to see the light as a threat as they normally would view a human. It is possible to carefully approach animals on foot to a short distance if the bright light is continuously maintained on the animal to greatly improve chances of successful killing.
 
A headlamp known as a headtorch in the UK is a light source affixed to the head for outdoor activities at night or in dark conditions such as caving,orienteering,hiking,skiing,backpacking,camping,mountaineering,mountain biking or hunting and fishing, Headlamps may also be used in adventure races if racing is done during dark periods. Headlamps are often used by workers in underground mining, and other maintenance workers who need hands-free lighting when working in poorly-lit locations.
 
Headlamps are usually powered by three or four  AA or AAA batteries Systems with heavy batteries (4xAA or more) are usually designed so that the light emitter is positioned near the front of the head, with the battery compartment at the rear of the head. It is sometimes possible to completely disconnect a headlamp's battery pack, for storage on a belt or in a pocket.
Lighter headlamp systems are strapped to the user's head by a single band; heavier ones utilize an additional band over the top of the user's head. Headlamps used incandescent bulbs before power LED’s became available.
