A must have for everyone.
List of 'perks':
- manual zoom
- 3 modes (Full power, Low Power, Strobe) - access using the switch by pressing halfway.
- uses 1x AA battery. The most popular battery type, can be found at most shops.
- fits inside pocket
- has a very nice military feel to it
- the clamp is very tight and requires some muscle
- the body of the flashlight allows it to be mounted on bikes, weapons etc. (mount required)
- the lip surrounding the button allows the flashlight to be placed upright on a flat surface (candle style)
- the body and the front slide (zoom) of the flashlight is checkered and allows for good grip, even when using gloves.
Being able to focus the beam makes this very useful. The wide angle is bright enough to provide good illumination over a small work area, or dimly light up a room, and the tight beam -- while square and LED-shaped -- is very bright over a very small area, and offers good throw over a distance.
Clearly it's not going to replace the various super-powered torches you can buy for very reasonable prices these days, but this pocketable beast is now my go-to torch. In an ideal world I'd trim some of the weight off the chunky case, but it'd be rude to complain for this money!
There does seem to be some confusion in the review pages about the batteries this torch will accept. It is designed to operate on a single 3.7V battery - available as rechargeable or one-use lithium ion. The control circuit of the torch is designed to extend battery life by continuing to deliver the correct current to the LED even when the battery is running out. Normally you would change the battery when the light begins to dim, but the control circuit keeps the torch running normally even when the voltage delivered by the battery has dropped considerably.
Think out of the box now - if you put a lower voltage battery in the torch, the control circuit will still compensate and try to keep the torch running at normal brightness. A standard AA battery is physically interchangeable with the 14050, but has a voltage of 1.5V for disposable or 1.2V for rechargeable These voltages are only a fraction of the 3.7V the torch is designed to run on, but the control circuit still manages a good light output from the LED despite that.
I have tested two of these torches side by side, one with a 3.7V Li-ion battery and the other with a 1.2V Ni-MH battery. Measuring lumen output is most definitely a laboratory job, but working on the basis of long experience in illumination and lighting, my estimate is that the output with the 3.7V battery was about ten times greater than with the 1.2V battery. Subjectively that would make the 3.7V beam approximately three times brighter.
Don't forget, however that at 3.7V the light output is truly astounding and at 1.Read more ›
The torch came within a couple of weeks and well in time for christmas phew!
Seller dispatched quickly after my purchase which I was pleased about.
The torch itself is very well made and is about the same size as the width of your palm if you have small hands like me. The torch is easy to operate with one hand.
The torch comes in a plain white box with some bubble wrap protecting it. There are no instructions for it. This is not a downfall however as it is not rocket science to operate.
The on/off switch is located on the end of the rear of the torch, easy for thumb operation.
Click the switch to turn the torch on for full power. 'Lightly' press the switch once to switch the light mode to the 50% and 'lightly' press the switch again to switch to the strobe setting.
The front end of the torch has the adjustable lense. Slide forwards and backwards with the thumb and forefinger to change between a nice wash of light and a square pin point beam.
For a torch of this size it is really bright. For general walking in the dark it is perfect to throw in your pocket ready for use on your travels to avoid any surprises from the dreaded doggy doo that some selfish people leave behind.
Really pleased with this torch!
NOT A 3 MODE LIGHT
NOWHERE NEAR 350 LUMENS
Contact the seller and they replace it with a new item... the item i received was well built... for the price i never thought they can build something like that. Three modes as described and zoomable... but then the lumens output... there is nowhere near 300 lumens, i dont know if it produces 50 lumens at all. But for the price and for just everyday use and better than nothing... bare in mind that this torch eats the life of your battery much quicker than you expect. This is a real bargain... dirt cheap... and i give 1 stars, for sending me wrong item at first and for misleading lumens output and for a horrible experience...
