Quite an old torch by today's standard but a good price

Looking at getting the P7.2 for about £12 more. Newer model and considerably brighter.

Unless anyone else can recommend a better sub £40 torch, it's likely to the the one I get at the end of the month. And please, no 'by a cheapy one off ebay/dx etc' I want a top quality torch.

I have a P7 and a P7.2. Both exceptional torches, but not too much much between them. I'm sure that you will be happy with either.

p7.2 is considerably brighter than the p7.

you after build quality or lumens, battery type.

for extra 20, could buy fenix pd35, 850 lumen but does use the cr123 or 18650 battery.

cree xml t6 + ebay.. job done and money saved

I have three cree torches a £3 one, a £10 one and a p7. All a very bright but the p7 offers a beam that floods a larger area and the battery life is superb.

I have a P7 and P3. The P7 is great but it is hard not to be blown over with the performance of the P3 considering the size. My point is if it is a LED Lenser torch it will be fantastic.

I have a P5E, is it worth me upgrading to either this or a P7?

These are decent enough torches but nothing by modern standards. I have too many high end torches but you won't go wrong buying a Nitecore EA4.

Takes 4xAA batts and has a clever multi mode switch.

What are you guys doing with all these torches?

My guess is 'breathing heavily in bushes'.

What is more important to you - the brightness of the light, the zoom / flood range or the physical size of the torch?

Why are people /this/ endeared with the torch? Am I missing another use? Heat as it seems appreciated and it is a (relative) deal!

Each to there own, you spend on games, other people spend on other things.

Some people think that brighter is best - until they find out the the torch is too bright; some buy torches to use to find the loo at night when camping etc. and realising that the torch is bright enough to illuminate the whole campsite and wake up everyone else. Others want long / heavy torches when doing security patrols; smaller ones might be just as bright but they don't have the same "clout". I have torches ranging in size up to large security type torches with 3 x D batteries but the ones that I use most of all use AAA batteries.

I don't know what I'd use this for.. I don't mean to cause disrespect to anyone but can someone perhaps clue me up? If it's a good deal, I'll get one for the sake of having one if I'll ever use it

A little of everything. Design, size and adjustable focus are the main things. But don't want to spend more than £40 and that should include being able to use 'normal' batteries as opposed to buying a £40 torch and then spending another £40 on batteries/chargers etc.

Have looked at loads of reviews of the P7, and then noticed the P7.2 which is brighter and I think uses less power too which is why I was going for it.

My P7 is a fine piece of engineering - very smooth operation etc. My Chinese versions are a third of the price and almost as bright on full blast but also have different light modes which I tend to put on low or medium. We do lots of camping and use torches most nights. I tend to use my K3 (Amazon purchase) or other AAA powered torches - the P7 is just too bright - I feel like I've been staring at a flood light when I use it and it wakes me up.
