In before the usual "But I can get one for £2 off ebay!!" posters... I've got a Lenser and can attest to it's quality. Very solid and durable, and a very even light distribution. I've had those cheap chinese lights off eBay, and the light is very uneven and they tend to have an overpowered LED for the cooling/heatsink, and burn out after a few months. I think a torch is something you want dependable eg power cut, fixing car/bike, etc.
Hot from me.

AAA batterys will not last long, you will be left in the dark.
look for a AA or 18650 torch

During those times of darkness my main concern is even light distribution too.

I have this exact torch for work as a industrial maintenance engineer and can vouch for its toughness, I've had it 4 years now and it's been dropped from all sorts of hieghts onto concrete and still working perfectly. The battery life is probably 2-3 hours at full power at a guess ( I use it for a few mins at a time ) but I use recharables so can't comment on normal AAA. Very good light from it and in my job the focus function does come in handy .

My experience of those £2 ebay LED lights is very different to yours. They're cheap, bright, and hold up well, in my experience. I use mine on a bike or when I'm climbing hills though, so I appreciate that I mightn't suffer the overheating issues you get.

Alleged reliability issues seem a bit of a moot point anyway, though. If power cuts are a concern, you could buy a £2 ebay torch for every room and passageway of your house for less than one of these.

I’m not ‘into’ torches, but have owned ones like pretty much every householder in the country at some time or another. So forgive my ignorance but what does ‘even light distribution’ mean and is the torch in this deal aimed at trade or service people

I have one of these and it just stopped only had it aroynd a year and it only gets occasional use, got it on a deal from hotuk at the time but cannot find receipt so cannot use warranty. Sad :-(

There is a deal on gearbest and posted today with cre led which are far brighter just for 79p. I have a similar one bought 8 months ago aluminium and sturdy for £1.40p and its brilliant(no pun).

Means the lens spreads the light out evenly in a nice circle. Cheaper ones will have weird shapes of light, sometimes resembling a house (square with a triangular roof) due to the shape of the LEDs.

Reliability would be an issue if you're not at home with a stockpile of backups. For instance, my cheap chinese light burnt out while cycling home on an unlit path. Personally I'd prefer to only need to keep 1. I think if I applied that logic to a number of household items I would quickly use up what little storage space I have.

Thanks for the link. The comparison test outside near the end was impressive. Like a flood light. If I was a cyclist I would want that one
