Found 24th Nov 2016
This is a Black Friday Deal of the Day offer on the tactical version of the LED Lenser M7, complete with a glass breaking ring round the button. LED Lenser aren't the cheapest of torches by far, but are rated by many people for their quality and engineering - this sort of price cut seems to happen for a day or two a year, so if you need one or want one now is the time to grab it.

Full specs here on the LED Lenser web site:

Great deal, but from my experience i prefer Nitecore torches, i feel that the adjustable lense on these tends to fail. Good price though.

​I prefer my Maglite. Can give someone a good whack if they get out of line X)

Well spotted - thanks OP.

Didn't need it..... but you made me want it.

Ordered.

I am weak.

if you're thinking of getting one, get one at this price, you'll be amazed, I think they're one of the best compact torches on the market, I own one and I've just ordered this for a stocking filler for my son.
thanks opp, voted hot.

thanks.just what I need.hot

I have a 6 D cell Maglite that I bought 20 odd years ago, I put in a LED instead of the old bulb and use rechargeable batts, I left it switched on and it stayed lit for over 70 hours, has a nice comforting weight to it, LOL.

I have a Thrunite TN12 and although the light output will be far brighter than the LedLenser it does not have a zoom, and it uses 18650 batteries (+ the Thrunite is twice as expensive)

Ordered this back in April for 29.99 on Amazon so not sure why it doesn't show on Camel?
Nice bright torch and high which is expected from Led Lenser. You can break a glass window with this ones end cap which is an advantage over the similar models.

Sometimes 3camels doesn't catch a price cut if it's only for a short period, a day or less, depends on how often they check prices and whether it hits at the right time or not.

Ordered the P7.2 model for around the same price which was supposed to be 320 lumens on boost and like this torch uses the 4 AAA batteries.
Felt let down compared to my 200 lumen Zebralight which runs on 1AA as the Led lender fogs up, is a pain to change the batteries in the dark and doesn't have a significant throw increase despite it's advantageous specks.
Hope this torch is better as it advertises 400 lumens but don't know how any torch that uses this battery format can take itself seriously by calling itself tactical. Do high capacity AAA batteries exist?

Lol. Tactical.

Still overpriced. Brighter, similar torches are available for less with very high ratings.

yes, please tell

This is where we get the Chinese junk that has a square shape of the chip in light when focused out and falls apart after little use...

It's not just about the size, it's what you can do with it lol. I'm happy with my trusty old 4D.

400lmn M7 user here and love it!!...when I go camping kids love lightning the whole site up, lol oO.

Amazing quality torches, love my Lenser.

Maglites are great torches, I have a 4D with 220Lumen LED bulb conversion. Whole thing cost less than £30 and is proper tactical.

This one is brighter than the P7.2. The M7, the non 'tactical' version of this has a microprocessor controller and is certainly brighter than the P7.2. The 'tactical' bit is simply marketing - it supposedly has a deeper ring round the light end to protect the lens and glass breaking ridges round the button in the tail. HTH.

I too use a Maglite 4D with an LED conversion module - great for walking the dog etc. after dark. I have an M7 on my belt for those everyday things where I need more light, looking underneath furniture, in cupboards, under bonnets, inside computers, etc., etc., which the Maglite would be a bit of a faff for!

Lol, me too. But my dad should get some use out of it and it seems a good deal.

Thanks OP, been looking for a good quality torch for a while, but was waiting for the right deal. Quality of this is way beyond what is needed for my requirements, but what the hell! You can judge a man by the quality of his torch.

I never knew you could replace the bulb with LED ones. I'll check this out. Thanks

I'm a bit of a torch geek and have two ledlensers and think they're overpriced and mediocre in terms of performance. I've previously posted deals for the Feit torches from Costco which are unbeatable in terms of performance for the price, and my 1000 lumens 3 D cell is still going well and is on its second winter for dog walking. Costco's current offer is a pack of two 750 lumen 3 C cell torches for something like £15.99 plus vat including the 6 batteries. They also have a newer version of the 1000 lumen torch which is now submersible for just over £20.

The following that the ledlenser has on here baffles me, I'm an engineer by trade and appreciate good design, but you're clearly paying a lot for the name and not for the performance.

Yes there are lots of rubbish Far East torches available, but a little bit of research will find the brands and retailers to trust.

The Feit torches are available from other outlets, just a bit more expensive than Costco, here's some on Amazon with prime delivery.

Other sizes of torch are available - don't give up your search!

As for AAA batteries, they are convenient - I suppose that's why they use them. Other types of torch are battery are available for those with other needs!

I have a number of Maglite, both models of the Costco FEIT Electric torches and a number of lensers. They're all well engineered, and the Costco torches are good value, though with either 3D or 3C cells are a good bit bigger and heftier than the torch I've posted. Am not keen on the 'square' chip of light shown by the FEIT torches, but maybe that's me. My own choice for EDC is a Lenser M7 on my belt, with a Maglite 4D for night time dogwalking, where its heft is comforting. In twilight the Lenser P14 size is a good choice. I suppose it's all down to personal preference - my own mantra is that it's better to have too many torches than too few when you happen to need one!

Perhaps you could post some of your research on far eastern torches and brands to trust - I won't be alone in wanting to find comparable quality torches for much less money!

Candlepower forum is the most knowledgeable site I use for research.

As for the square LED on the Feit torches, the only time this is really visible is when the the lens is fully focused - when it's fully focused with the 1000 lumen torch I can spot my dog across a field 300 yards away - I've not really found a need to use the full forcus as the light you get with the spread is adaquate for plenty distance for me.

Can you share some of your research please - enquiring minds need to know "the brands and retailers to trust"! This is a deal sharing community after all.

just a couple of years ago ( or perhaps 18 months ) £26 was the standard price on amazon for one of these. terrible how they slowly increase the price.

This model didn't exist back then, and £25 was considered a hot deal for the Lenser P7 back then - check back in HUKD if you don't believe me!

Blimey square shadow, that will be cree T6 then, that is old tech for led torches. Have about 5 lensers, cpl Maglite, Fenix, olight, Nitecore, surefire, trust fire and a few other brands.

some of the Chinese direct to look at is Convoy, good quality, well built, and use latest cree and drivers. Manker and Klaus are very good as well. Lumintop have a good reputation as well. Astrolux is another one to look at.

what a lot of people fail to realise, is not just buying the torch, but the aftercare as well. 5 years no quibble guarantee, like to see the negative people get that on the feit or other cheap torch

That wasnt the M version. the M version was always much more expensive - this is a constant current version which does not get dimmer as the batteries run down.

But why do you need a torch for breaking glass? A brick is better any day. I love my brick!

It's not so handy for EDC though!

I always rather liked Frankie Boyle's observation that if the SNP get their way and the nuclear subs leave Scotland we'll have to resort to the traditional Stanley knife and half brick for defence!
