5.0 out of 5 stars Painfully bright - brilliantly robust, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sidiou Group 5w UV365 nm Flashlight Mini Straight Flashlight UV LED Ultraviolet Flashlight (kit) (DIY & Tools)
What a brilliant bit of kit! LED tech has come so far nowadays that the time of needing to spend decent cash on a torch is definitely over.

This little torch is about 3 times at bright as my 4 cell traditional Maglite and yet it's about 10 times smaller and powered by one cheap AA battery. I can slip it into my pocket, into a bag, clip it onto something with the handy clip that's built right in and because it's so cheap you can just forget about it.

The front part of the torch surrounding the lens has 3 sharp segments, possibly meant for self protection. This is probably imitating some of the 'tactical' torches out there meant for military use and is an interesting addition.

Positives:

- super bright (on wide (let alone spot) I can almost light my whole garden from upstairs window (25m x 20m garden size))
- Cheap as chips
- Just as robust at the Maglite
- Seems to be waterproof (dropped it in a bucket of water accidentally and was fine when I pulled it out)
- It's full metal aside from the rubber on/off switch.
- The front part of the lens moves in and out so you can adjust the focus of the beam from wide to spot - interestingly, this function is FAR superior to the one on the Maglite.
- Perfect smooth beam when moving from wide to spot (unlike Maglite with the holes in the beam coverage)
- AWESOME battery life, I've not changes the battery yet after use every day for nearly a month

Negatives:

None.

For the price, you can't go wrong.

Superb review!!
Well balanced and lots of detail, while still not verbose or boring.
I wish all reviews were like this!
Thanks! :)
