An emergency flashlight for a power outage, a keychain flashlight for a parking garage or a menu over candlelit dinner; a light bar for a shop project—there are so many occasions where the right type of flashlight simply saves the day. And when your logo’s on the handle of any of these light sources, your small business gets the credit for coming to the rescue!
Provide a promotional gift that’s useful to your audience and chances are good it will keep your name in circulation. But which flashlight type is right? Below we break down all the variables, including different bulb and battery options, so you can find the perfect match—er light—for your small business brand.
The best promotional flashlight is useful to your customers and affordable to you, and has a battery life that extends its usefulness (as well as your brand exposure). Match the task and target audience with the types of flashlights below:
Unlike a typical flashlight that shines light in a beam or a circle, a light bar spreads the illumination to cover a larger area. This makes them useful for lighting up a room, workshop, closet, or car engine. Choose one that includes a pocket clip so it’s at the ready when bright light is needed. These are great for auto shops, home and appliance repair, hardware stores, and home centers. We like this one:
6 SMD Utility Light Bar: Impress your customers with a light bar that will shines brighter than the rest! SMD LED bulbs tend to be brighter and offer a wider spectrum of light compared to traditional LED bulbs.
Multi-use means more brand exposure and a well-designed flashlight pen provides writing, lighting, and even swiping all in one giveaway. Flashlight pens make a welcome business gift at trade shows and special events. We like this one:
Cabaret Flashlight Pen with Stylus Tip: This flashlight pen manages to look sophisticated and still offer light and a stylus tip along with a ballpoint pen. Great for special events and fundraisers.
No battery, no worries when you’ve got a planet-friendly, solar powered flashlight in hand. Solar powered flashlights tend to use LED bulbs because they require less energy to emit light. A solar powered flashlight will usually include a hand crank that generates power after the flashlight has been in the sun. They are great for emergency use and make a good gift with purchase for emergency preparedness kits and seminars.
For those who need light close at hand, such as healthcare patients, senior centers, and employees coming to and from parking garages, a flashlight keychain is a practical solution that keeps your name in pockets and on nightstands. Most keychain flashlights include two or three LED bulbs and use button cell batteries. Provide bright light in a lightweight style with these popular flashlight keychain options:
Engraved 3 LED Flashlight Keychain: With bright blulbs, vivid barrel colors, and your logo laser engraved, this flashlight keychain boasts staying power inside and out.
Mineral Soft Touch 3 LED Flashlight Keychain with Rose Gold Trim: More elegant than your average flashlight, your customers will add this to their keys as a fashion accessory!
Not sure what they need? Multi-purpose flashlights are a safe bet for customers, college students, and new employees. For maximum brand visibility, pick a flashlight that shines light and then some! Check these out:
Magnifier and LED Light Keychain: Looking at a restaurant menu? How about directions in fine print on a bottle? This keychain light includes a magnifier to get it all read! Great for senior centers and pharmacies.
Basecamp® Explorer 2200 mAH Powerbank Flashlight: With a li-ion battery, this flashlight delivers serious light and comes with a powerbank to keep your accessories charged up on the road, trail, or anywhere you need light and a charge at the ready.
Most flashlights will use an LED or SMD bulb. Let’s look at the characteristics of the most common options:
The best flashlight battery depends on the type of flashlight and the intended use. Some batteries are strong but heavy, so not ideal for a flashlight keychain. Others are powerful enough for a multi-use flashlight and power bank tool. Below we break down the most common options:
Choose the type of flashlight that suits your style and budget, and distribute with confidence, knowing everyone feels just a little more secure with extra light on hand. See all our custom flashlight promotional products and pick the one that matches your budget, occasion, and target audience.
