This is a sturdy, well made torch. It is rubber clad at both ends, with a textured aluminium area in the middle - it looks good and it is still visible in dim light. No amount of shaking or tapping could get the torch to flicker, (more than can be said for some cheap torches).

It is simple to use - just drop in two AA batteries; no faffing about with 3 x AAA batteries that have to be inserted into a cartridge. Another advantage of using AA batteries is that they are better value: a typical AAA battery has at best 50% the capacity of its AA counterpart but is 80% of the price. (One of the reasons I chose this torch.) As stated in the product description, 2 x AA batteries are included - these are good quality alkalines.

The on/off button is on top of the torch, under your thumb, where it should be - you don't need two hands to switch the thing on/off, like you do with these torches that have the button on the end.

I have several torches. This isn't as bright as some that are available now - but isn't as expensive either and it is still easily bright enough for most common uses about the house. This Varta torch is the one that I use the most.

The torch is light (in weight!) and fits comfortably in the hand. There's a small lanyard included; I don't use it but it's about the right size to go on your wrist if you don't have very large hands.

Possible cons: there is no focus adjustment, (for changing the beam between spot and flood); just a fixed, bright, general purpose beam.

All in all, a bright, well made, sturdy, practical torch and very good value.

The Varta LED day Light is excellent. As I am elderly with failing eyesight this product has aided me enormously in identifying wording written in small print and with writing in dark positions. The torch is sturdily made, fits neatly into my hand,is small enough (six and a half inches long)to fit into a handbag and yet is large enough not to be easily mislaid. The three daylight bulbs give a very clear light and fitting the batteries could not be simpler. I recommend this item highly.

The torch is small and light, with a wrist strap. It throws a fairly even beam of light, and is quite suitable for walking the dogs in the dark - can pick up the dogs at about 40/50 metres.

This is an excellent led torch, at a very good price. Superb brightness from just 3 leds. I was not after a 100 mtr beam, nor wanting to pay a grossly over inflated price. This torch is perfectly adequate for the motorhome or car, or going down the garden to an unlit garden shed. Glad now I ordered 4..!! Would highly recommend

Bought for elderly parent to keep by the bed in case of power cuts. It is not too small so is easy to hold and find the button to turn it on. Bright enough to be safe to use in a power cut in the home.

Handy torch for in case of power cuts and as added visibility in built up areas. The beam does not carry far though so not ideal for walking in completely dark outdoor environments.

I ordered this torch and I was very pleased with the packaging when i received it. It comes with two batteries as described and the led light is excellent. It produces a lot of light and the light travels a long distance. Overall it is handy and good for it's price.

Bought this on 9 Nov. 2012 & it is the best torch Iv'e ever owed, same batteries in now !
The LED lamp uses very little current and gives off a very bright light. Just buy one now, the are much better than the well known American ones.
