Looks cheap, but is it any good.

There's lots of these torches around. Some are excellent, others are cheap and nasty.
#2
Got one of these a couple of months ago
Works very well, very handy, quite bright.

Must keep winding it up though, but great
in emergencies.

We have some similar if not identical devices. If I need to go up the garden or to the workshop I don't use these. They provide useful light, but I if I have a choice I use brighter LED or Xenon lamps. I do though have these dotted around the house to provide absolutely reliable backups. I wonder about the long term reliability of the batteries though.

Don't forget the P+P

These are nice little torches. They have 3 leds but you can toggle them and have 1 led or all 3 leds. Even with 3 leds the lights aren't overly bright but they are good enough to find your way around the house if there's a power cut. They make great toys - our kids love them. Toolstation were also doing these as a 3 pack for £3 but they've now sold out.. Great filler item!!

We've got a couple. I used them as filler items on my last order. As others, they are not exactly bright, they are good enough to find you way, but not for working under. One of them also slips when winding, not the best quality but expected for the price.

I would definitely not order them on their own, but fine if you are ordering other items with order total over £50.

It's £5 postage and should be quoted as £6.20. These are normally £3.99 from Lidl, Aldi and Netto.

Which is £5.00 (unless you can collect it from one of their 8 stores)

I saw these when placing an order with toolstation recently. I had to really restrain myself from buying them just because they were so cheap.

Was pleasently surprised with Toolstation. For the items I bought they were significantly cheaper than Screwfix and much cheaper than B&Q. Ordered in the afternoon and goods were delivered next day.

Toolstation was set up by the guy who used to run Screwfix before he sold it to Kingfisher (B&Q). So no wonder it's similar to what screwfix used to be.

Although it annoys the hell out of me if people don't qoote the P&P - it is accepted practice on HDUK that you can post the deal without postage costs if the item is available instore or as a "filler" item to qualify for free postage. Look at all the Amazon deals for examples of this....

So the OP was correct in his post although it might have been useful to have been more explicit about postage costs etc

This is a wind up right? ;)
#13
these were at tesco for £5 ,but the three LED's are confusing , since you can have either 1 LED on very bright , or three on dim. it might be better to get one of the ones available at some petrol stations. they havthe AA logo on the packaging , d
they have 3 LED's , all of which are as bright as the 1 bright one on these. it was £6 and you are bound to find them soner or later if you use different petrol stations.

i have one of these , and its ok... but for the price you get better..(thats price inc p+P)
#14
Postage £5
#15
i first bought one of these for £30 when came out years back,so perhaps i should be barred from hot u.k.deals,they are now around a fiver in skegness{bargain capital of england}. nice pun chrishampson... oh yeah constructive comment,o.k. for camping/emergencies.
#16
These are excellent value. I have bought and used these toolstation ones, they are certainly OK for occasional use, I have tested how long they last on a 30 second wind-up - its about 30 minutes before the light runs out. Also just tested one I keep in my drawer, its been in there since before Xmas & it has kept its charge, didn't need winding up - so I certainly recommended them (but only if you are buying other stuff from toolstation to get the free pp)

I have a different make from a couple of years ago which I keep it in the car for emergencies, the toolstation torch is as good as or better than the my old one which cost £10+ IIRC.

is this a wind up?





















will get my coat :whistling:
#18
They have very similar looking ones in Woolworths for just £5 at the moment (reduced from £14) - these ones also come with a variety of connectors for most mobile phone to help give you an extra boost of power should your mobile run flat.
#19
Similar ones to these are available in Poundland so had to vote cold
#20
They do still sell the 3 pack instore which is a total steal : £3 for 3 torches. But the PLU isn't on the website and i can't remember it off the top of my head. But if you have a toolstation near you, watch the items advertised in the screens in the shop, the 3 pack will pop up with a product code. I bought a pack last week.
#21
This looks very much like the model sold at Aldi stores not so long ago, if so its quite a decent little torch and well worth this price, heat added.
#22
wilko sells these for £3.

got one for beside my daughters bed, because we have so many power cuts. its great cos if she falls asleep with it on, you just wind it up again!

Bought mine for £3.50 from Wilkinson. Certainly worth the money :)

The above is news to me:whistling: it annoys the hell out of me as well:x

I too bought one of these a couple of years ago, from the gadget shop, for £20, this looks to be exactly the same.

I'd say go for this, i have one in the boot and one around the house that i got from Costco. Very very useful, no coming back to find dead or leaked batteries, just wind it up and go.

Might have to get me some more of these, if i can pick up locally :thumbsup:
