Also in red, perfect for the handbag or glovebox!

Been looking for a decent priced keyring torch for a while now.

ordered, might make a nice little Christmas gift...

Surprised anyone would want these old tech torches..... I think they're rubbish now I've been spoilt by LED torches.
I wouldn't want it even if it were free.

Nice. Cold, it's not an Xbox One.

Thanks ordered as a gift.

I have nothing against old tech when it still has a place in the world, especially when its better than the modern equivalent in some ways.
But these torches have a pathetic light output, the bulbs don't last that long and they're not battery efficient.

So what makes it worth £4.99 ?

Maglite led for me!!

Now that's a decent torch.... I've had one for years. Only paid about £2.50 direct from China.

Sorry for the sarcasm biker Jeff but let's not forget we are voting on the deal and not the quality of the product. That aside, if you read the reviews you'll see that it is a quality product with good bulb life!

Maglites have good build quality, i'll give you that....... but that's all...... unless its an LED Maglite.
Not worth a fiver imo.

Rather than just being negative, why don't you post a deal for a better torch for the same price or less.....if you have one in mind.

this is a brill deal bought one for my partner 3 years ago and its still going it comes in handy as he works in the security industry and needed a small torch dont listen to the people that are posting negative reviews as these torches are excellent quality and well worth the money

We have a comments section in deals for people to give their opinions about the deal..... my opinion is that the deal isn't worth the money.
I'm not obligated to do anything else.

To be fair i totally agree, even the cheapest Chinese cree flash lights produce a ridiculous amount of light.

People dont use lights like this anymore.

Now £11.25

it provides light in the dark what else do u need? unless u are into something that needs a lot of light it meets most peoples needs.

save your money, i got an olight s10-L2 baton recently and the power is immense if required, build quality as can be seen on youtube videos is great too, I'd prefer to spend the £30 and get a light that has these features than a little maglite that is old tech..

i used to swear by maglites, but the lumens are so low..

also got the Sub £2.50 torch that was posted on hukd the other week. as per comments / links above

+1 from me too, LED is far more efficient, these old school Maglites are terrible in comparison. I'm not voting on the deal I am just providing an opinion (I have lots of torches) - if you haven't tried them yet then you should. I don't doubt the maglite build quality will be good though...

You can get LED torches that are not only better than this Maglite, but cheaper as well..... that's what makes this deal cold for me.
Maglite were the biz in their day, but that was years ago, they were late to the LED revolution and other torches overtook them in leaps & bounds.
Maglite are still partly stuck in the dark ages to be still punting out these crappy bulb torches.

you sound up to date with torch tech for the serious torchheads, but all i was suggesting was that some can be more than happy with this torch, i have been known to change the odd house fuse or find something in the dark with nothing more than my mobile phone screen.

I'm not a torch aficionado, but LED and Cree LED torches have been around for so long now, the vast majority of people know that they are leagues above old tech bulb torches.
If you like this torch then buy it...... but there are better and cheaper and that's a fact.

I got mine cheap from China in another deal. It's handy for burglars and CSI's as it has a zoomable lens.

Used one of these for years in my job but since LED torches have come along like others have said there's no comparison. Still can't fault the build quality though.
