Where to find sources of light in the caves

Cavers will not get very far into a cave where they can not see where they go. Even if they could have achieved their goal of Metro, it would be almost impossible to find the exit. There is a total absence of light in a cave and it why the lights are essential equipment caving. Serious cavers choose a unit, good reliability and complete the scheme with at least two backups.

Most companies and organizations recommend that each person must have at least three independent sources of light. The system has three sources of light does not mean you can necessarily use all the time or one after another, but rather you have two backups, if the primary fails. Do not have a light deep inside a cave could be an issue Life and death should you choose reliable sources of light. They must be resistant to water and be durable enough to withstand to use raw.

There was a time when the carbide lamps were widely used on the outside and by minors and cavers. Battery powered flashlights have since resumed now that they have become more reliable and economical. Get lamps LEDs are particularly popular because of the amount of light can not contribute to mention its lightness and energy efficiency.

The main source of light must be mounted on the helmet, so you can see every time you turn your head and both hands free for climbing or crawl.

The second light source is usually a flashlight if another light mountable helmet is even better. The third light source is usually another flashlight. Maglite are recommended by most cavers.

There are other sources light but with LED lights and flashlights are small, lightweight and inexpensive, these should be regarded as better than everyone else. However, in a real emergency situation, these options can be life savers.

Candles provide light, but are not reliable. In collaboration with matches, they are very vulnerable to getting wet. While they can be used in a pinch, and can be a source of heat, Candles should not be considered among the three light sources.

Sticks are another source of light but again, these should only be considered a backup of your system to three sources of light.

In a really tight situation, do not forget other items you may have with you who can identify light as your cell phone, or the LCD screen of a GPS device.
