Best Hiking and Trekking Flashlights

At Ledlenser, we are all about combining outstanding German quality, innovative technologies with convenient and sleek designs to make the perfect hiking and trekking flashlights. Here are a few important points to consider when choosing the right flashlight for your adventures in the wilderness:

  • Rechargeable flashlights with long run time. Our range of trekking and hiking flashlights are equipped with rechargeable batteries that have a long run time – some of the models once fully-charged, can last up to 144 hours in low-power mode. Depending on how long your trekking or hiking trip is and whether you have opportunities to charge your flashlight, you will find our lights will cater to your needs.
  • Beam distance. This is an important aspect of hiking and trekking flashlights to consider as it determines the range of distance your light will be able to illuminate – which might be crucial for some trips. With various power levels and models, we provide some options that can shine up to 335 m in distance in power-mode.
  • Light options. We offer hiking and trekking flashlights that are equipped with emergency modes such as boost, S.O.S., strobe and more to make sure you have the ability to signal for help or communicate during your trip. Based on your intended use, you can pick a flashlight that has the set of light functions that fits your trip scenario best.
  • IP class. The flashlight’s IP class indicates whether the flashlight can withstand external factors such as water and dust, and if it does to what extent it can do that. Our range of flashlights has a variety of IP classes. Depending on what kind of scenarios your trip might involve, you can take that into account when choosing the best light for your hike or trek.
