Solid and excellent value.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silverline 483730 Extendable Magnetic LED Torch, 3 LED (Automotive)
I would recommend this torch to folks who are searching for a lost bolt in the depths of an engine compartment, or to folks with young children. Although it claimed not to come with batteries, there were batteries within it, it's just that they were a little flat in one of the torches I ordered.
The torch itself is a bit like a well known metal tubular brand when not extended and has a good weight to it. It is not the brightest led torch in the world, but it's 7 quid! It's certainly bright enough to illuminate an engine bay. When extended, the magnets at both ends are string enough to retrieve small bolts from dark, inaccesible crooks and nannies. The flexible neck is also useful for hooking over stuff.
My two and a half old son loves his - (I bought three) - and it can be used for magnetic fishing games in the dark, as well as dog-irritating.
In short, I think it passes muster for the price and would be an excellent stocking filler for a bloke who likes stuff, or a cheaper alternative to more expensive snake-like lights.
