Yep, my local Poundland has them in.

I used them last year for camping and they were fine. For a Pound they are ok and disposable, wouldn't pay more though.

Due to price, Cold I am afraid.

Don't you read the thread before you post?

They are NOT the same as the Poundland ones!

I can assure the above poster that these ARE the same as the Poundland ones!

They both have a magnet at the back, a swivel hook and the same amount of LED's.

Identical apart from the Rolson branding.

If you want to be pedantic you could argue that the LED's have a higher light output or such, but that is highly unlikely, they arent going to have Cree LED's in them or anything!

These units are the same as Poundland ones. Hell, the Poundland ones even have a choice of a few different colour casings if thats important to anyone. lol

If anyone can point out a difference between them (Poundland Vs Rolson) please let me know and I will apologise unreservedly for my assertions.

I paid £3 for mine last year and its still going strong. Use it every day. Mine was from Morrisons not that it makes a difference but maybe the ones in Poundland are seconds?

In this price range I would think there is no such thing as seconds. They really only get a proper test once the purchaser puts some batteries in them and uses them.

They will be mass produced in a Chinese factory and given a cursory QA check at most.

No doubt in other areas of the world they will have other brand names printed on them too, depending upon buyers requirements.

As I said they are disposable for a £1. Not that my 3 gave me any problems. There's virtually nothing to go wrong. A switch, battery connectors and a bunch of LED's..... perhaps a resistor or two.

As with most LED lights/ torches, their main issue is that the light tends to be in a beam rather than give an all round illumination. For my use that wasnt a problem.

For what its worth, they are decent little lights for a Pound, its just that they *are* the same as the higher priced Rolsons.... therefore cant be considered a good deal unless you have no Poundlands near you, or they have no stock.

They are similar, NOT the same (but I did say the Poundland ones are good too). The Poundland ones have a hard, cheap plastic case and feel quite flimsy, the Rolson ones (and others which are more like them) have a more substantial case with a soft, high grip finish. I'd say the Poundland ones are a cheap but perfectly usable imitation of the originals. Both worth buying at their respective prices in my view but they are certainly not the same. Yes, I do have both.

Your unreserved apology accepted in advance ;)

Besford, I have a rubberised finish ones from Poundland, black one. I also have 2 blue ones which are identical apart from being non rubberised.

So if you want the identical one get the black ones which my Poundland has in stock currently. :)

Im almost tempted to buy one from Amazon and weigh them to see how much more substantial the Rolson one is... I am betting it weighs exactly the same.

My non-rubber one from Poundland is black! Sounds like there are different versions out there. Got it last autumn and haven't seen them since or I would have got more.

Poundland one is 75g; rubberised one 110g (though latter not precise as it's slightly modified to fix onto my bike). Also Poundland one has four self tapping case screws whereas the better one has only two machine screws which fix into proper brass threads in the case; switch button on Poundland one slightly larger diameter; internals simply drop into place in the Poundland one whereas they are properly screwed into the other. LED sections look identical and are similarly powerful though.

There are numerous branded and unbranded versions of these around (incl B&Q in black or blue; Kamasa in Green) but the Poundland one is the only one I've seen which isn't rubberised. All the others have been at least a fiver so this is a hot deal. I've seen some on market stalls which don't seem to be as powerful but that could be just the batteries.

The rubber one is definitely more robust but at £1 the Poundland ones will certainly do the job OK. Every home, car, bike, garage, shed, tent, toolbox should have some!
