This review is from: AA 3W Cree LED Zoom Torch (Automotive)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a terrific little torch which I am delighted to keep in the car as a replacement for my pocket Maglite. It is compact, lightweight, easily controllable one handed, has a powerful and well-focused spotlight beam which can also be quickly adjusted to a less intense flood and is inexpensively powered by 3 AAA batteries (included). It is not as powerful as my Lenser P7 torch, which I keep at home (80 as against 200 lumens), but is also not far short of half the price. Since receiving it I have left it switched on to test the so-called burn time and after 9 hrs is only just beginning to fade: again, nowhere near as good as the longevity of a P7's battery fill, but still excellent value for money, in my opinion. The aluminium body is nicely machined and adjustable beam mechanism relatively smooth. (I confess I haven't been prepared to take it into the shower to test out its water-proofing, but given the accuracy of the other claims made in the product description, I'm happy to take its 'weatherproof' qualities on trust.) You don't get a case/holder which is standard on pricier torches, but you DO get a fixed lanyard to keep it attached to the wrist.
I would think most purchasers or recipients of this torch would be very pleased (I am!) unless there are very specific requirements. But for a reasonable price you get a torch that will meet most needs, and in a very compact format. Recommended.
