Well constructed but much lower light output compared to LED
on 11 February 2015
I only bought this as a toy for my daughter who is under 2 but loves torches. My LED torch I felt was sure to burn her retinas out so got this for her.
Maglites are built to last but with today's LED technology these lights are a bit dated and do not give out anywhere near the same light as LED bulbs. The light also has a yellow tinge to it.
The beam can be easily adjusted narrow or wide by twisting the end and the end can also be removed to use the torch in a candle mode, something LED torcehes can't do.
I bought mine on offer for under £3 and frankly as a toy its fine but for anything else and at the usual price I would pass it by and order an LED torch as I have done before.
