Small emergency torch with some design issues.
on 6 January 2015
I got this for my Mum as an emergency light source at night to be placed on the top landing outside her bedroom, wish I'd chosen a different type now. The 'night light' feature illuminates the main beam of the torch in a dimmed capacity, this is fine but my mother finds it dazzling to her eyes if she gets up in the night as it points directly up. Other lights I've seen have the night light function on the handle which is a much more sensible idea. The torch itself is very small, (my fault should have realised from the photographs), so I can imagine it getting put down and lost easily, (by my mother). It is also a particularly unattractive off cream colour that looks like old plastic that as faded over time. Build quality - average. I guess it functions as described but would I buy another - no, I'd source an alternative.
