18650 batteries would definitely be larger

Ordered thanks.
140lm with 3 x AAA supplied.
Not sure if the life of batteries is true as similer head lamps have longer life.

Cheers.
As I said before personally, I wouldn't have anything with AAA batteries rechargable or not. They just don't hold their charge well in high current situations (like this) only in low current devices like remote controls IMO

Why is that? What would you recommend, looking for something like this myself.

I agree for high output situations but you take the AAA battery version for convenience over performance and £5 for a good product is a bargain. If you had a power cut but hadn’t used it in a while the chances of finding some spare AAAs in the house are higher than some 18650s. Then again I used an 18650 headtorch (with quality batteries) for an ultramarathon and picked it up the other day after well over a year and it had barely lost any charge at all.
Ordered 2. Thanks op

And that you can't stick it on your head and have both hands free? Actually my preferred option is a single-AAA torch that you can hold in your teeth to keep both hands free - but that's only suitable for short use. If you want longer use times then a head lamp is much more suitable. 3 x AAA will usually last a few hours, and it's not hard to find rechargables. If you need much longer run times then the style with AA or 18650 pack on the back of the head might be more suitable - but if you need something for that long on a regular basis then I would suggest spending a lot more than a fiver on it.

I have had a led torch for 8 years that takes 3 AAA rechargeable and has always held up well.
I wouldn't class this product as high current when its Led over a standard bulb.
Cant wack the price

I should have said the type of battery is 18650, and not a torch which takes 18650 batteries!!
Always good to have one at home. Ordered.

Yes, a headtorch. Ours take two 18650 batteries which can be charged on board. It is super bright and perfect for when we walk our dogs in the dark. The models we have also have a red safety light on the battery pack which is on the back of the headband.

A bit like this one :

amazon.co.uk/Gal…-17

They are a bit numb, and you look a bit like a dalek, but who cares, it's dark and you're safe!

This is a handy article:

reddit.com/r/1…ody
at this price point AA or AAA is fine and if you want better performance just buy some rechargeable batteries with highest Mah ratings, luckily i have some floating about with a multi battery intelligent charger which i use to charge my vape batteries

i managed to get Diall T4-3 LED Headlamp 3 x AAA and the more expensive DIALL T4-4 LED HEADLAMP 4 X AA which was 9.99



always handy to have these

Says you have to bring photo ID when collecting it. I don't think I did the last time I used them two years ago. Is it really necessary?

Must admit I do get annoyed at some people wearing these at night, especially if they are powerful, walking down the pavement dazzling you like a car with full beam headlights.

Sometimes they ask to see the card I paid with but I've never been asked for photo ID, though that said I only ever pick up low value items. Maybe they ask for photo ID for higher value stuff?

In the stores near me you need ID when collecting. They asked me for mine recently when I ordered some washers and paid online, £1.49 worth
I have to intermittently crawl about in loft eaves, this will be great instead of having to move the work lamps about. Thanks OP
I've had this for I think 2 years, cost a tenner from B&Q. The light output is bright though a little fiddly to change batteries. Just ordered the T4-4 £9.99 margin!

when i ordered it only asked for the card you paid with and normally you slot that in the chip and pin machine, if they ask you for photo I.D just deny you saw any message about photo i.d
Pretty sure this the model iv got

Bought it for having two hands free when working on machinery in low light conditions, about a couple hours total a month at most

it's not designed for ultra marathon fell running lol

It's about the cheapest thing out there
Edited by: "logohigh1" 8th Oct
Ordered for when I'm pottering around by the chicken coop in the evenings. Cheers op. :-)
I just bought it, but now I don't know what to do with it.
Bought 2..great deal..
Can always use extra torches..
Battery lasts 3 hours? That's not even half a day lol
I'll give it a miss
Good price for what it is, but if you actually use a head torch frequently I'd opt for something decent - as other users have said, 18650 batteries and USB rechargeable are a must. I use
amazon.co.uk/Hea…-14
at work, where I frequently work in the dark - the battery will last at least 8 hours with constant use. You can also buy 18650's with a larger capacity (~£10 a pair) - mine can stay bright for over two shifts, and the brightness never fails to blind others

Shame the T4-4 is out of stock around me otherwise I'd have had one of those too!

Why would you use it during day?
Bought Monday. Tried yesterday... Really good quality and range of led for the price. No up rating which is mildly annoying, but I can look past that. I believe it to be shower proof in build quality after fiddling with it for a while. Heat!
