5.0 out of 5 stars LED Lenser M7
A nice little torch and incredibly bright, but apparently at 220 lumens only a low to mid range torch in the "super flashlight" league. If this is low end, high end must be approaching full daylight!
The only downside are the instructions - if you're thinking its a torch why do you need instructions? Read on - as they don't explain how to change the program mode...

1.0 out of 5 stars Bright for 15 minutes
Excellent torch, however uses batteries far to quickly. Use it for an hour a day to walk the dog and I pretty much have to replace them daily!
Also have the t7 which is better but only slightly
Disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars LED Lenser M7, 9 Dec 2013

This review is from: LED Lenser 8307 M7 Micro Processor Torch (DIY & Tools)
A nice little torch and incredibly bright, but apparently at 220 lumens only a low to mid range torch in the "super flashlight" league. If this is low end, high end must be approaching full daylight!
The only downside are the instructions - if you're thinking its a torch why do you need instructions? Read on - as they don't explain how to change the program mode properly. I thought mine had a fault as it wouldn't go into low power mode, only full power and "defense mode". A quick look on their web site explained that pressing the button 4 times in quick succession changes what the modes are. I've selected the Easy mode so only high and low power are available, and at low power its only a very bright torch, but enough if you only want to light up your garden and not next door's, the one after that, the woman across the road and the reclusive guy who lives 5 doors away!
I haven't measured what distance it will go to, as I have a life, (says the person reviewing a torch!) but it is the brightest torch I've had by far.

5.0 out of 5 stars The next generation of the classic P7, 29 Dec 2013
By 
S. P. Long "Simon Long" (Cambridge) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: LED Lenser 8307 M7 Micro Processor Torch (DIY & Tools)
LED Lenser are a German manufacturer of very high quality LED torches, who are now actually owned by the Leatherman multitool company in the US. This model, the M7, is the next generation of the popular P7 Professional torch, one of which I've been using for 5 years or so.

The "M" in M7 indicates that this model is microprocessor controlled, which means it has a wide range of functions; more on that later. Compared to the P7, it is almost identical - perhaps 5mm longer, but the two torches are the same in appearance otherwise. The build quality is as you would expect from an expensive German product - beautifully machined alloy, an immaculate black finish, and easily dismantles into various component parts so bits can be replaced if they fail.

In terms of brightness, this torch is around 25% brighter than the P7 - or in other words, it's incredibly bright. Lenser quote a throw of 220 metres, and I can well believe it. Battery life in a low power mode (it uses 4 AAAs) is up to 11 hours.

Speaking of modes, the torch has many. First off, you can select whether you want constant levels of light whatever the battery strength, or for light to reduce as the batteries run out - the second mode will give overall longer battery life. There are then three operating modes - Professional, Easy and Defence - each of which has a number of different lighting patterns, such as bright, dim, flash, strobe etc. All of this is controlled by various combinations of tapping and holding the single button on the back of the light - none of it is obvious, so don't lose the instructions! Fortunately, out of the box, pressing the button turns the torch on at maximum brightness, which is probably all 99% of purchasers will use...

Unlike the P7, which was supplied with a nice nylon belt holster, the M7 is only supplied with a plastic belt clip. This allows the torch to be used clipped to your belt and angled in whatever direction you want, but it doesn't protect the torch at all - fortunately the holster is available as an accessory, so I'd recommend buying one with the torch.

LED Lensers are very much the BMW of torches - expensive, but well-designed and well-built, and extremely satisfying to use; you are left in no doubt that this is a quality piece of kit. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LED Lenser 8307 M7 Micro Processor Torch (DIY & Tools)
Bought this on Black Friday for a good price, amazing torch and features - the power produced is incredible and one handed focussing is also handy. Beats my 3D cell LED Maglite easily, though not got through set of batteries yet to comment on life, though has power saving mode, blinking, SOS and 20hz strobe mode etc, as well as switchable mode for light output, 3 switchable profiles. Reccommended.

The LED Lenser M7 is a great torch with very bright light from such a compact unit. The various functions of the torch are also great. I have never seen a torch so bright! Would highly recommend.

Amazing how powerful these small torches are compared to the old fashioned 6 cell maglights. Incredibly handy, easy to carry about without being too intrusive

I have used this torch a handful of times now, and I'm very impressed with it. The beam is amazingly powerful, and the different lighting modes are fun. Recommended.

If you have never used a Lenser torch before you will be amazed. They are very bright (we use them in the mountain rescue team that I am a member of). They are robust and reliable. Lenser offer a good guarantee and support. A bit expensive but worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very bright, 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LED Lenser 8307 M7 Micro Processor Torch (DIY & Tools)
Build quality - as good as it gets apart from the switch. Never had problems with it but it will not last very long. As it is part of the electronics replacing it will be difficult if it breaks.

Light - Very strong indeed keep it at the low setting wen needed.

Functions - I don't believe those additional settings are much of a plus to me (strobe, SOS...) but wouldn't like to be proven wrong.

Battery life - Can't comment yet. Still in the 1st pack - not using it much.

Practicality - Heavy for its size. Metal body will not be comfortable in cold weather.

This review is from: LED Lenser 8307 M7 Micro Processor Torch (DIY & Tools)
Sturdy torch case, does exactly what it says on the package. Bit heavy but worth it for versatility of beam.
