I bought this for 29.99 a few weeks ago. it's a good torch, but I'd go for the p7 variants as they're more conveniently sized and have similar performance.

Heat added anyway.

Brilliant torches.

Lowest price


For what its worth, this was £26.99 on 24/11/2015 and again over the Christmas/New Year period 2015 so that camel camel sales history is wrong.

LED Lenser are kinda like Maglite torches. Both brands are good solid, well built performers, think of them as workhorses, but neither are never the best value or performance on the market.

nice find

Fine if you need a solid reliable torch for security work but if you just need a bright torch that you can use around the house, you can get half a dozen perfectly serviceable lights from China for this price.

I have the P7 Tactical torch, got it for sub £30 from Amazon a few months ago. Its a god send for when I'm walking the dog in the morning and evening.

Haven't voted. This torch looks significantly old generation compared to the newer stuff on the market. I've never been terribly enamoured with LED Lenser stuff. The zoom in my mind is a gimmick - give me proper IPX8 waterproofing and impact resistance over a silly zoom any day. This torch can only cope with light splashes yet it's touted at emergency services use?? Hmm. Torch tech had moved on massively in the last few years. Check out budgetlightforum for more modern and, in my opinion, better value torches. I tend to use Olight torches which knock spots off this but there are plenty of options out there which are far brighter, more efficient, with better features and a better tint and which are more robust than this, bearing in mind the zoom presents an inherent weakness in the water and impact resistance, or lack of. Much better alternatives out there.

But have you tried using the zoom? It has such a satisfying expensive feel.

I agree where are they a list would be helpful. Olight are very expensive.

LED lenser are torches for people who know nothing about torches and think they are the best thing ever.

​Thanks for this. I have been looking into getting a torch for a while and almost jumped straight into ordering this. Always had a feeling there were better alternatives around thou.. I went to the BLF pages and the Convoy C8 is getting a lot of love. How would you compare the two?

Cold from me because these torches are still overpriced. You can get better performance for less if you don't mind losing the branding, which is what you're paying for here.

would be great to have some suggested alternatives if this is such a bad option. I suspect torches are something that lots know a little about and few know a lot about.

Good deal but personally I would choose the microchip lenser T7M over this which is coming up as reduced even more. I have the MT7 which is an earlier variant and it has some excellent features, Morse, Dim, Boost, Power, Low Power, Blink, SOS, and Defence Strobe, also 400 lumen. Couldn't pass this up so ordered as a replacement for my current one.

Nice find Op, but after reading posts & reviews think the p7.2 will do the job for me i.e. Dog walking so will wait till I can find a deal that won't make me cry(cost). But if I needed a larger Torch I would of gone for this deal(still crying, but you get what you pay for). Thanx for posts wv feedback (_;)

Busy with baby. C8 (and equivalent) are v good.

Apart from dog walking I'm intrigued what people use these for.....well not so much what for as that's evident but what activities are people carrying out to need such expensive torches.

Put it in a box, put Pro on it, charge ridiculous price and fools will come running

Buy a Good Chinese one, with rechargeable 18650 cell/s, with latest more powerful led technology ....

Its not that simple. Its like saying why buy a Ford over a Kia or Audi. They all do the same thing, its just how much do you want to pay for the name, and the level of detail / finish.

There are smaller, brighter torches but they will not last as long, similarly there are cheaper, brighter torches but they wont have the build quality.

Aldi /Lidl do good torches but its pot luck when they are on sale. Look at Olight/Fenix/Nitecore/Surefire but there are a lot of cheap Chinese copies on the likes of Ebay / bang good that claim to be a good brand name but are also a lot of good quality clones that perform as well as the branded ones at much cheaper prices.

Many and varied, I personally spent a lot of time walking in sometimes remote areas of Cumbria so packing a powerful but compact quality torch as one part of my safety gear is important, particularly relevant of course in winter months. I am sure there are plenty more good excuses though!

The Thorfire C8 is very good quality for the price (£15 or so but will need Li-ion cells and charger). The Thrunite TN4A is superb for around £40. It takes 4x AA. The Olight range are very compact with cutting edge components, often with built in charging circuits. But they are a bit more pricey. I'd be buying these sort of things before I ever went near a Lenser. As I said, check out budgetlightforum. Join, ask, enjoy. As for people enjoying torches that cost more than a fiver, why not? But stay away from these awful bluey tinted Lenser things.

Reviews says rechargeable batteries shouldn't be used as will cut the life of the torch so with this in mind will give it a miss

This would probably be just as good for half the price.

Thanks buddy

This dude seems to know a bit about torches
Torches

"Professional Torch" for the Light bearer or if you just want to practice before Olympics.
Seriously? On a 'deal' website?
I got myself a 'no-name' torch for £7 Amazon/Ebay/Aliexpress. It serves me 3 years now. It is waterproof. It has rechargeable battery which lasts several hours.
The light? Yes! Daylight bright up to 10m, bright 25m, foxes at nigh visible up to 100m.
I don't get you guys spending too much because it's a "deal" .
aliexpress.com/af/…y=n

Gone for one of the tactical ones,the T7M as said above. I've had a P7 for several years and its been excellent. I've had cheaper ones in the past, but they've all broken, yes they've been as bright, but they haven't lasted.
Contrary to the above views, I love the adjustable beam and use it all the time.

Or....you could get something like the 'CREE XML T6' (or similar name) below for under £3.50 delivered!
http://s27.postimg.org/o74b7m19f/CREE_XML_T6_Flashlight.jpg

Quoted lumens between 3000 - 6000 depending which seller you purchase from, so pinch of salt required I guess.

Several brightness settings + Strobe + Morse Code

Uses 3 x AAA batteries

AFAIK, this is the very same "NAVY SEAL FLASHLIGHT" that was scamvertised/spamvertised all over t'internet with the slogan "SO BRIGHT IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL” and offering them at 75% off their normal price of $200. oO

I have two of these, bought direct from China at a cost of around £3.30 from different sellers and and for the price paid, I can quite honestly say they p!55 over any torch I've ever had.

Yes, it's shipped form the far east and takes a couple of weeks to arrive, but no hurry, no worry!

For those that don't want to deal with Ali-Express, I've just discovered a seller on Amazon UK selling these for £3.75 delivered

I still cannot understand how such an item can be shipped from probably the other side of the world for under £4.00, when internal UK mail for such an item would be at least £2.85.

​Thanks, do you have a link to the UK seller? Can't find one for £3.75. Thanks lots.

"Probably" Mmm, yes exactly. When I'm walking in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere, I don't want probably, I want it to work without fail. In my experience, cheaper ones are a gamble.

Gearbest flashlight Zanflare f1, 1000 lum, 5 mode and 30seconds 1250 lum mode. no need charger, charge via micro usb. £27.

3000 - 6000 is a joke it'll be lucky to have 800.
