Nb you can get a few pounds chaper if not buying direct from Amazon, howevere not saying in anyway other sellers are not genuine there is a MASSIVE intake of Chinese LED lenser copies at the moment.

I could be wrong, but isn't this 350 lumens max, and not 850?

The Chinese stuff beats this hands down I'm afraid. And anyone dismissing it as junk hasn't used one? Perfectly reliable and much cheaper.

I have started using Chinese products a lot as well, if you are sensible they are a good choice.

Clearly not used lenser much then. The lenser will beat any generic chinese made ones. The build quality, the light output (lumen and throw and cast of light). The aftercare.

Try getting one of the chinese made items returned after a year due to faulty switch or whatever goes wrong, not a hope in hell. Whereas Lenser not a problem, the 5 year guarantee on these is wortk paying that little bit extra.

I had a real lenser and I have a chinese copy. They're identical in build quality and brightness

Is that so? I got a full replacement on a Solarstorm X2 after 11 months when I emailed a seller. The fault was due to me damaging the item.

Even so, I can get 3 of those for the price of this "bargain".

Been using cheap Chinese junk on my bike for 2 years. Maybe the batteries don't hold as much charge now but not had any problems with them.

Ahh the old solarstorm x2 5000 (cough) lumen, seen these and used them. no control of the spread of light, just cheap glass as lens, battery pack more than likely not as described. Overheating can be a problem for these.

I agree that the Lensers are very good and the backup service is excellent, but why would you even want to return a Chinese version. They are so cheap that you would simply buy another one, or just buy two initially. You'd still be well in pocket. I have just taken delivery of a small Cree Torch (cost £2.90 but can be found cheaper) from China. Was ordered on 20th December and delivered today. Using one Trustfire 3.7v AA size battery (2 pack available for £4 and charger available for £1 off Ebay), the light is as powerful (if not as white) as my Lenser P7 using 4 x Duracell AAA (rechargeables not recommended for Lenser) and the torch is a whole lot smaller. It also comes with Hi, Lo, and Strobe modes. Having said all this, it's all down to personal choice. You pays YOUR money and takes YOUR choice.

You wouldn't bother sending them back, but to get anything close still looking at £15 - £20, so not much difference for 2. Point is the build quality, lenser will take a lot of punishment, the generic chinese ones, not so much,

Probably got the same small cree torch as me, got cpl dozen of them, take the 14550 3.6v battery, great little torches,use them all the time and modify them to take various colour cree chips.

I can see both sides of the coin, as a regular user of petzl rxp's zipka's nao's etc.
I don't like lenser based on their previous offerings, however they do give you the proper emitter, not just say you will receive a "X2 CREE" (for example) .

I do want a product that lasts, not to be replacing items every few months or years & actually covet an item that is a good original not a cheap knock off with shortcomings.

& lastly if it claims hyped up lumens, is it regulated or not? cos in torch terms if it only throws a high beam for a matter of seconds that is not good, nor worth the pricetag.

My petzl myo rxp for instance, programmable amongst 10 settings, enables battery longevity, without replacing batts every 5 minutes, user friendly, the nao also does this (even better) by means of sensor for long &short term beam step up & step down, worth paying the money for, good support, secondary sale prices too!

buy stuff to last,not just junk it, save it from landfill, a trip back to china for recycling, (when its only just come from there).

The exception to rule I have made lately was with a chinese generic front bike light giving out a close beam I was happy to let my daughter loose with even on a low setting, which will have the battery upgraded asap. ..see how she handles it / treats it, i'll take it apart & see if its likely to last / fail. ..but for £18 in the first instance seems ok & didn't overheat sitting around still in a cold environment.

There is nothing wrong with Chinese Head Torches, or hand held. Bit of a generality but based on what I’ve bought. My colleagues and myself use them on a daily basis.

I would not give another Lenser product house room after being issued with T7 P7? Can’t remember which torches. Heavy, annoyingly complex switch that also had a high failure rate.
#16
I have a smaller lenser that I have been issued for work, it's good but the batteries just don't last I might get a week out of it if I'm lucky, but I use this as a backup as I have a chinese torch it lasted me well over a year before failing but that may have been my fault as bought a double sized battery for it. All in all the lensers are excellent but I would go with the Chinese myself as I have found their products excellent.
#17
My P7 Lenser lasted approx 2 years before the button became faulty, possibly due to batteries leaking. Ledco promptly sent me a new screw top & battery housing, so I can't fault their customer service.
#18
This is the same debate as new top of range car vs cheap "new/second hand car"

Personally I have purchased the blatant copies of top marquee to find them totally unreliable.

Only had one fault with a lenser and the customer service was amazing.
#19
The link at the top for spec relates to the H14r-2, this model is more expensive and not the one on offer.
I've had 2 different led lenser head torches and found both the be great. The problem with the cheap Chinese items is the false claims about lumin ratings. Bought some from China before and straight in the bin they went. The Chinese market isn't controlled on the same level as the British and over exaggerations often occur. You get what you in my opionion.

No it’s not. Regular names Mag Light etc I aspired to these items bought them, used them, gave them away, left them rotting in the tool box. The stuff coming out of China at the moment offers mental amounts of clear focused light, at a ridiculously low cost. My only caveat would be rechargeable batteries, pay the extra and get genuine Panasonic.
#21
Whilst we are on an LED / Battery trip I need a decent battery pack of genuine reputable quality, not some old laptop batts in a false cover, something that wont set the house on fire (charging the current ones in a fire proof box just in case.

Anyone recommend a site for decent li-ion batts to make up / buy a lump thereof !?

Cheers.
#22
I love the arguments. I don't even need a torch. but heat for the banter!
#23
Lenser are total quality, and at the right price, unbeatable IMHO
Can't comment on other makes cos not needed to try them!
My H7R2 is great for night trail running!
#24
Quite simple if not for you don't buy :). For those that want quality and can afford quality buy :)
