How to select a torch?

So you have decided you want to buy an LED torch?

Easy, just go and buy the one that has the most lumens, right?

WRONG!

To correctly buy an LED torch you should understand a few things, firstly it's not all to do with Lumens; you also need to know how wide the beam is and lastly, it's good to know the Lux too.
Without these 3 pieces of information, it is almost impossible to say which torch is better/brighter than another; the problem is that not all manufacturers give you this information.

Once you have made your choice, other things to consider would be battery type and capacity and well as its size.
