Credit to northwales for posting this deal 2 months ago at the old price of £39.99 (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/led-lenser-p7-2-giftset-39-99-free-c-c-free-delivery-maplin-2029840).

Just looked on their website today and it has been reduced further to £35.99, which is a very good price for the P7.2 alone, but with this you get a free P3 pocket torch.

Only downside is that it is no longer available for home delivery, so depends on your local store having stock.

Does anyone know if this comes with a holster to clip on your belt? Cant seem to find any mention of it on thh description although alone it does on amazon it appears.
Good deal none the less, heat added.

Mine is still in the box but having a look at it, it says each torch comes with a pouch. The pictures on the net of the pouch suggest it has a clip, but maybe those who have purchased it and opened can confirm 100%.

Just seen one in Swansea

I have both of these torches and they both came with a clip and holster.

This looks a really good deal. The torch alone on the Maplin site is £49.99 - maplin.co.uk/p/l…4na - or is it £59.99 - maplin.co.uk/p/l…8ny not sure - and you get a P3 too which are about £12 to £15 elsewhere. Reserved one in Crewe for pick up tomorrow. Cheers OP.

Does this have microchip control?

It's the £50 one, the other is a T7.2. Bare in mind that is Maplin pricing...on Amazon, the cheapest I've seen the P7.2 for is around £35, but that obviously doesn't include the P3.

Cheers for the clarity there. So a very good deal.

What's the difference between the P series and T series (apart from the name)?

No it doesn't. The M7 that was posted as a lightning deal does however.

From what I can tell, the micro processor ones have SOS, strobe, high/low modes plus a few others. This ones only had on/high/low/off basically, but personally, those other functions to me would just be useless.

good deal thanks op

bought one , thanks op

Had one for over a year, I'd say it was brilliant but that would be too obvious.

Excellent bit of kit, you'll never need a brighter torch.

Nearly bought one although they are still overpriced imho, you are paying for the focussing. If you want that get a cheap ultrafire 2200lumen for 7 quid delivered from china. Bit nasty but bought 3 and they are fine. If you want a decent torch cant go wrong with a fenix, tk35 ultimate is awesome and recommended

Great torches, heat addwe!

Fair enough, although let's say the P3 is worth £12-13 alone, then that means you're getting the P7.2 for around £24. So if you look at it like that, it is 3.5x the £7 torch from China. Will it last longer than all three of them combined, who knows? But I think the build quality and service from Lenser should something go wrong has to be worth something :-)

Love my series 2 M7 :D....can't see this being too bad, but yes still quite pricey?..

Good price, decent torch. Nice twist focus. Stick some lithium batteries in and away you go. Well worth considering Fenix torches though, particularly LD22, another option 'around' this price range. Fenix often offer free smaller torches, too.

Not a bad price. Got one of these myself and a couple of other lensers. To be fair, the lensers could be better torches though, you can get a lot more light for your buck these days. Last torch I got was a cheapy just as water resistant ebay 20 quid job, came with a lithium rechargeable battery, and the amount of light it sticks out puts my lenser to absolute shame. So might be worth looking around!

Link please?

The offer now (early Sunday morning) appears to no longer include the P3 but please correct me if I am mistaken.

Link please?


Yeah - the PD35 is at least £50, so where is it "the same price"?

was about to buy this on amazon for £40 and some batteries for £10 after reading this deal, i don't have a maplin close by. Then i canceled my orders and thought there must be a better torch for £50 :P maybe something that uses AA batteries as i have some nice enloops. Any suggestions would be apreicated.

Great thread and excellent post, $7 one from China will do the trick for me.

No it does, you just need to look at the very last bullet point in the description. The actual box has both torches in plastic packaging, so there's no way they could remove one torch without not selling the other

Any chance you could post this as a deal indicating where you can purchase one at sub £36 please? Would get some serious heat from me if actually exists.

The Fenix PD35 with 850 lumens is an old model. The 2014 PD35 now has 950 lumens - see http://www.flashaholics.co.uk/fenix/fenix-pd35-2014.html

Nice torches, but run off CR123's or other lithium batteries which can be expensive. Far better to get something that runs off AA batteries IMO as these are far more readily available (Eneloops etc). Something like the Nitecore EA41 that gives out a max of 1020 lumens running off 4 x AA (http://www.flashaholics.co.uk/nitecore/nitecore-ea41.html)

HTH

Fractionally more expensive but is the 2014 version. Bit of a punt with customs mind.

Works out @ £37.01 which is a good price indeed, but if Customs intercept it then it could potentially be £12 - £15 dearer Bit of a gamble Eh ?

Both come with a pouch incorporating belt loops and two lanyards,
plus 5 spare Duracell batteries. (10 in total) also the P3 has a key ring attachment and detachable pocket clip.

Brilliant stuff:) hot hot hot

The P3 that comes with this is the P3 AFS variety with 25 lumens this sells for ~£17 compared to the P3 BM which has only 16 lumens and is ~£13.

I've had one of those cheapish torches from china. Bit as anything and runs off the big CR batteries however after a few months the rubber ring seal came off the focus bit so now it is loose and doesn't focus properly so it's now useless. I've had a few other ultrafires and others from china I'm the past. They are ok but the build quality is always a bit pants and they're not the most reliable as the end cap switches intermittly fail each time. I've given up and brought a M7 led lenser.

priced as just under £40 in Farnborough, Hants storstore but scanned at cheaper price.

feels good quality compared to the ones i have bought from dx.com in the past. thanks
