Maglights are very poor. LED torches are the future for this type of use.

Maglights are always my choice & they are guaranteed for life .

Sorry but these are the smallest ones, very tiny and I got mine for £4.50, only good for an emergency back up for reading signs in dark etc, your much better off getting the next size up which I paid £7.50 for.

They are currently doing an LED conversion for the maglite (£9). Might as well wait until the LED version is available

voted cold as amazon do these for £4.59 each, link in PJR's post, many thanks PJR, ordered 1 and spent just over 42p in order to get the free delivery.

djb773, im confused?? i thought these use LED's?
#20
These are terrible!
I've had this one and the 2xaa one, the bulbs go black/stop working quite often and cost something stupid like £3-5 for a pair, terrible amount of light compared to an LED light.
Torches from DX/chinese retailers are a bit hit and miss, and not made to the same quality as maglites, but you can't even compare this to a 2xaa maglite in terms of light output.

LED maglites are supposed to be pretty good and give decent battery life.

Even these are brighter than the 1xaaa maglites.

They use tiny bulbs, only certain maglites have LEDs as standard: http://www.maglite.com/productline.asp

which are the good torches then, dont want a huge torch, 4-8 inches long would be good, must be very bright, led and good battery life.
#23
if you want a well constructed and reliable torch buy this.

if you want something that shines light, dont.

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.1253<<<< these are EASILY 5-6 times brighter than the maglite. EASILY.

On left- Maglight (with I.Q. switch) with 2x new Duracell Plus AA batteries - Poor

On right- Ultrafire LED with 2x new Duracell Plus AA batteries - Excellent

Throw distance is farrrrr better too.
#25
Also - I just realised that this is for the single AAA solitaire Maglite which is basically a waste of time.

only great for close up stuff and to have a bit of light on a keyring.

for a torch i recommend:

The Romisen RC-G2 is small, powerful and runs on 1 AA battery.
i own 2, they are cheap and quite frankly utterly fantastic.

what brand and model is the 1 on the right, what price and where's the cheapest place for it or a torch that gives similar performance to that?

Jetpac's dealxtreme link is £8 delivered, dont know if thats the same torch thats in the photo or if its worse or better.

EDIT: found 2 video reviews of the deal xtreme torch (£8 delivered):

were can you get if from for £8 ?

that dealextreme website: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3607

its $13 or so with free delivery, comes from hong kong, i've bought from them before, takes around 1-1.5 weeks usually. Works out at £8.00 delivered when paying via paypal, will order myself 1 now i think.
#30
yer im going to do that aswell thanks

Bought two of these but had to take them back. I know its says 8cm but I didn't bother working out just what that meant in reality. They are tiny and just a bit pointless for any purpose I could see.
#32
on the website they are about 10CM but looking at a ruler they are still very small

Same. Still a decent price anyways, so I ordered. :-D
#35
Millets had them for £7.99 a while ago, not much light but they do fit in a pocket OK. Handy for seeing the camera, for making adjustments at night on time exposures on a tripod.
#36
I am going to India in April on a business trip but I need to go to a village in vast countryside, which would be the best light and portable torch with the greatest intensity?
suspended#37
you will need a flame thrower playbay :P

infact that will probably attract moths :P

get the 1 from dealextreme that i linked on page2.

Just bought 2 for 9.79 from Argos, had to get customer services to correct the price first though

you really wont regret it, as i said i own 2. they only take 1AA battery and the throw and intensity is absolutely amazing for such a small light. all metal case, has a really nice feel and weight to it.

The one in the photo is a Ultrafire which you can also get from Deal Extreme, however i prefer the Romisen look (cant personally compare the 2 in lumination, but i know they are similar and the Romisen is cheaper)

I've got one of these and no way would you be able to read a sign with it. Ok for map reading in the car and that's about it.
And by the way it's "you're" not "your" in this context!
