Seems a pretty good price for an item that'll always come in useful.

3 year guarantee, 46 lumen brightness, 25m distance and IP62 rated for 'weatherproofness'

Found in the Eastleigh store but presume nationwide.

Bargain (_;)

great find

Cheapest kind of torch with cheapest kind of batteries. May still be good value for £1 (as an emergency standby perhaps) but don't rely on it for much more.

Would have been better as a smaller 1 AA torch and a single alkaline AA battery included. It seems you only have to blink for a zinc battery to run out of charge.

A 25 watt old fashioned (incandescent) light bulb is roughly equivalent to about 250 lumens. So don't expect much light from only 46 lumens. As for a 25m reach I suspect that would only work in a lab with specialised equipment unless you can throw it that far.

Rapidtables table quoted claims Fluorecent / LED produce an identical amount of lumens. Another table on the same page at rapidtables show there are notable differences
