Thanks for sharing, I have added an image, hope you don't mind

Ordered two - thanks OP

I have had one of these for a couple of years now, the actual torch is pretty decent quality and still working fine. The bracket is a little flimsy but will last a good while.

Top tip don't try testing it by falling off your bike though, it tends to break

A 3-watt LED bulb may produce anywhere between 240 to 320 lumens if you wanted to know!

At this price, with no specification for the LED, you're likely to be at the 240 end of the range, if not even lower. I've got a couple of these, using nothing more than my eyes and comparing to a lamp of known efficiency, I'd say they're more in the range 100-200, which is still great for the money and not likely to blind any oncoming traffic.

In reality you can never give a lumen output based on W (if the lamp is from China, forgetting all the other factors, they tend to lie on the specification sheet) early white LEDs were nowhere near the efficiency to produce 80lm per W, and it's often these early chips that are used in these torches, whereas the very latest Crees are capable of more than 400lm when driven with the right conditions.

Another thing to consider, if this was actually using 3W at 3v, which is a typical reasonably bright LED characteristic, your 3 AAA batteries would last around 1-1.5hours, you'd be lucky to get a rechargeable to manage even 1 hour, mine all manage many hours on a single set of batteries, indicating they're not driving the LED at 3W and therefore not at it's full brightness.

These are good value torches and bright, well worth the money, but don't expect the impossible.

had these mounts and they're quite annoying
I switched them out for quick release mounts

Bought this one from Bangood for the same price metal case with 3 modes its smaller and brighter with a better bar mount and uses any 5v usb power bank.
I use 7800mAh one mounted in a bottle cage.

What is it, or do you want to keep it secret?

I use one of these as my camping torch and have the bike mount on my bike just in case I find myself cycling after dark on cycling/camping trips. Good way to double up on equipment. The mount did get broken when the bike was bagged up on a recent flight though. May pick up another at this price.
