1000 Lumen aluminium torch powered from 4 C cell batteries (included)
I bought one of these yesterday and it’s really nicely made, nice wait and far brighter than any other torches I’ve bought, including many that claim similar brightness figures.
Available online and my local store had loads in stock


For a practical and robust torch equipped with a host of useful features, this 20W LED Torch is the perfect choice – and it makes a great gift. It features continuous shaft zoom, two brightness levels with SOS function up to a brightness luminosity of 10%, and power of up to seven hours.

Accessories Included Batteries, carry strap

Brilliant torch, very bright.

What's the beam pattern like - spot or flood. And is it even or rings and patchy?

It’s adjustable by sliding the head. It’s a fairly wide and very even beam at it’s widest and adjustable to a tight spot at the other end. Only criticism is it’s got a visible cross from the led when zoomed right in to the tightest spot.
Build quality is also very good.
This is match better than torches I’ve bought costing more than five times the price

Nitro228. How long the batteries last and is it 4 x AAA batteries?. Rechargeable ones?

It says in the description 4 C cells.

Approx 7 hours on 100% and 20 hours on the lower setting. 4xC cells with one set included

It can't be 20w if it runs for 7 hours on 4 C cells.

OMG this!!!! Ave C cell 6000mAh (ish)> if this takes 4, and runs for 7Hrs = 5W (ish).

I’ve no idea what the voltage of the LED is so no idea if the 20W is accurate. It says 20W on the packaging. All I do know is that this is considerably brighter than a ThruNite torch I bought from amazon which claims to be over 1100 Lumen. Regardless of the accuracy of the figures this is more than bright enough for the average person’s needs, far brighter than anything else in this price bracket, incredibly good build quality and has a 3 year guarantee.
Most people probably don’t care too much whether it’s 20W or 5W as long as it helps them avoid dog sh1t on the pavement at night.

Most people probably DO care if seller is lying to them.

Do people really use a torch like this to avoid dog poo ??

Yep, I use my Feit 1000 lumen torch (3 D cells) for walking the dogs - but we do live out in the countryside, so no street lighting for us

Well yes , fair enough. In urban areas a bit different.

That's right it can't be more than 5W.

Its both, i bought one last week, very bright, would highly recommend

So this got me thinking back to GCSE physics and I can’t work out where I’m going wrong....
6000mAhx4=24000mAh=24Ah
24Ah/7 hours = 3.4A
3.4Ax6V=20.4W
This is definitely not my field so would be grateful if you could tell me where I’ve gone wrong and how you arrived at the 5V figure....
Thanks

It's 4 x 1.5v batteries = 6v x 6A = 36Wh / 7 hours = 5.14 watts.

Ah ok thanks...
Out of interest where does 6A come from? And why is VxA=Wh and not just W.
Forgive my ignorance, genuinely keen to understand the calculation.

Basically you weren’t far off, your maths was fine except for one issue, The mistake you made is you either have the batteries in series (4x1.5v=6v OR in parallel (6000mahx4 = 24000mah). Can’t have both extra capacity AND extra voltage. That would require 16 C cells.... in parallel quads then wired in series... 😩

So to do it your way it would be 6AH/7 = 0.857A x6V =5.14W (same answer alternative route).

Edited for clarity- I worked it out as a calculation from mah into wh where wh = mah x V/1000 (6000x(1.5x4)/1000 = 36. 36/7 = 5.14.

Isn’t it great that whether you go via Wh or via amps as above, both Work. Mmmm physics. Or is that maths. Either way. Mmmm.

PS:
I actually voted hot as it’s a great deal for a bright torch. Just not 20W or 1000lm. My guess is 5W ish and therefore 400-500lm.
