A searchlight can basically be described as a torchlight that throws its beam a lot further away than that of a regular torchlight. It can also illuminate a much wider area than the regular one depending on how much the beam is focused. It is a little versatile gadget to have with you around your home.

- This handheld searchlight weighs less than a pound so it’s easy to carry and hold while walking or hiking outdoors.
- This light has a foldable stand which is a good feature but the screws holding it up could be of better quality and could do with being replaced to ensure long term use.
- It has a switch lock that prevents it from accidentally turning on in the gear bag.
- It has a nice rubberised feel so rests securely on the edge of the counter and doesn’t get tipped over.
- The size of this light is not as big as it seems in the photos, it is quite a manageable size.
- I like that this it with both a car charger and wall charger, and the chargers have a green indicator light that lets you know when it’s fully charged.
- The only challenge that you may face is the fact that you have to unscrew the back of the searchlight to charge it each time. However, it is worth noting that this is necessary to keep it waterproof.
This searchlight is quite comfortable to hold, I now prefer this trigger-style over a traditional flashlight because I think it is much more ergonomic. The flashlight also includes a detachable red light filter for 3 additional light options. The built-in red light helps your eyes adjust quickly to the dark and doesn’t disturb others, including animals.
