Great value and performance
on 26 November 2012
The torch is very lightweight and you get a feeling that it is of poor quality. Most of the weight is in the 4 D batteries. However, for the price which includes 4 D batteries, it's a great torch. The LEDs give off a bright white light, better than some more expensive krypton torches. Not tested the battery life properly but I expect them to last well given that LEDs are much more economical with the batteries than krypton or halogen bulbs. The beam is not as wide as some but its quite bright at the periphery making it a much more useful light.
Very difficult to convey how well a torch performs, but to give some sort of idea, I found the brightness to be as good if not better than the Varta Industrial Lantern and a 2 million candle power halogen torch.
This is not a particularly rugged torch and I don't think its quite heavy duty. Woth no protection of any kind, I don't think it would survive unscathed if dropped on hard ground, but its lightness and performance makes this extremely useful and good value. Very happy woth this purchase.
