Hi outdoorman16. When I click http://www.hotukdeals.com/images/deal_gotodealb.gif it doesn't go to your deal. Have you got a direct URL ?

Hi outdoorman16
Thanks for posting; and welcome to HUKD. I have edited the capital letters in your title; not a big problem, but it can be perceived as "shouting" and I've seen other deals get voted cold for just that reason, which is a shame for the OP.
Emmajk42 wrote a very comprehensive and excellent guide for newcomers/posting deals on HUKD here: - hotukdeals.com/ite…ne/
I hope that helps; and again, thanks for the first post and welcome.
Kind Regards
Andy

Ahh. "instore" now showing in title. Thanks for editing. As I'm close by, probably worth a punt on Monday:)

They have them in all the time. I bought one of these and the smaller maglite (not mini) for £7.99 in 2007. I think they're still the same price

If these are traditional bulbs rather than LED (which at the price I am 99% sure they will) - then they can be outshone and outlasted by an £8 Tesco LED using two AA batteries that comes with a 3x Luxeon LED.

You can get an LED kit to swap for the bulb (which is likely to cost more than the torch when including postage - and invalidate any warranty), so is all getting a bit 'specialist' for some folk.

Why not just buy the Tesco option for less - its brighter - comes with batteries - lasts longer - you can use rechargeables without needing a larger charger or converters to accommodate D cells.

COLD for most - but an OK housing for someone into a conversion - so I will pass on voting.

I don't think most maglite owners care too much about the brightness, most people like the safety of it being a basic self defence tool which happens to be a torch.

yeah its basically a truncheon... that and the fact its a maglight so it will last for a pretty long time.

If it's heavy and can give a good whack then it's ideal as a self defence weapon without the police charging you with carrying an offensive weapon.


I bought a big long heavy black torch with LED and normal bulb light a few weeks ago from Lidl for about 7 quid.

Why not go for the 5 or 6 D cell one then?

Alternately - and presumably for your car - a wheel brace - a heavy spanner - prize/crow bar etc instead.

Then you could use a far better Tesco AA torch to light things :-D :-D :-D

4D is plenty big enough for basic self defence, I certainly wouldn't suggest people carry around a crow bar in their car.

I have a crow bar in my tools in the back - also a large wheel brace - a large spanner for the radiator that probably weighs in at 2.5kg and another closed end one for the injectors that would be a bit less - a metal knife with a blade that would be illegal to carry otherwise - a couple of chisels - a couple of 30cm+ screw drivers - and its all legal as its part of a tool kit.

I never looked at things like that as a weapon perspective until today - but I am sure if you felt a need to carry weapons there are far more you could legally carry.

The vast majority of people would question a need to have a crow bar as part of a car's toolkit. A wheel brace is one thing, but a crow bar...

I have a 6-cell and its a beast....
Whilst I fancy an led one , apart from eating batteries with extended use this 6-cell is a great bit of kit...

the 3 cell led ones were going for about £24-£26 in my TKMaxx, I've just been hoping for a price drop, but they are slowly seeling at propper price

So this is a 3 or 4 cell and the older offer is 2 cell ??????

I got a 4W LED 2xD Tesco torch - and I guess it gives a single car headlight a good run for its money - and coincidentally clips nicely into the door pocket.

The full price was £20ish - and they were clearing stock for low teens.
