Torch History

One of more notable uses of torch is as Olympic Torch that is used to light Olympic Flame.

In 1936, Carl Diem, chairman of Summer Olympic Games that were held that year, introduced torch relay because there was a custom in the ancient Greece that flame burns in the temple of the Hera for all duration of the Ancient Olympic Games in Olympia and commemorated theft of fire from gods.

About Torch

More About Torch

History

The electric lamp was odorless, smokeless, and emitted less heat than combustion-powered lighting. It could be instantly turned on and off, and avoided fire risk.

Incandescent

The light output of an incandescent lamp in a flashlight varies widely depending on the type of lamp. A miniature keychain lamp produces one or two lumens.

LED

Since the LED has a long life compared to the usual life of a flashlight, very often it is permanently installed. Flashlights made for an incandescent lamp.

HID

An HID gas discharge lamp uses a mixture of metal halide salts and argon as a filler. HID lamps produce more light than an incandescent flashlight using the same amount of electricity.

Accessories

Colored lenses placed over the end of the flashlight are used for signalling, for example, in railway yards. Colored light is occasionally useful for hunters tracking wounded game after dusk of an area.

Batteries

Primary cells are most economical for infrequent use. Some types of lithium primary cell can be stored for years with less risk of leakage compared with zinc-type batteries.
