Successor to the legendary and much loved LED Lenser P7 torch, this is the LED Lenser 8307 M7 400 lumen torch, which uses a microprocessor to offer various types of light/battery usage. Price cut from £47.74 to £22.99 for Deal of the Day. Previous lowest price recorded as £43.99 last new year's eve, average price £49.63. Not surprisingly, at this stonking price it's limited to two per customer. See first comment for technical details and pricing history. P.S. The numpties who vote cold on this (and believe me, there have been some, though none with the courage, manners or honour to explain why) need one so they don't look so dim - you will not get one of these cheaper without risking theft charges!

According to the manufacturer's website this is a 400 lumen torch. Previously there was a 220 lumen model. There is some debate about which version Amazon will actually supply. Either way, it's a good torch and a steal at this price.

Heat added! Many thanks I missed the LED Lenser on the black friday deal.

I read about the features, sounds clever, but there's literally no talk of brightness/lumens etc.

Is this a super crazy bright torch?

Bright and brilliant. I suspect my P7 may be fake, so gone for this!

Ordered one a well, thanks for the heads up

That's what my dad says yet somehow he has a drawer dedicated to them

How can this only be on 10 degrees?

It should be HOTTER THAN THE SUN. (like this torch)

BOUGHT ONE, mainly cos I'm worried they will sell out.

My dads christmas present.....cos he likes torches. He has about 20. Now 21.

Some of the reviews on Amazon are for the Lenser 220 lm M7, not the 400 ml 8307 M7.

Bought one also in case they sell out and also trying my luck with Flubit.

bought one for my brothers Xmas present but I've got a feeling he might never see it

Bought one of these last Christmas in a lightning deal for this sort of price... Not strictly the successor to the P7.

P7.2 is a better torch.

This one seems to be 225lm:

cellpacksolutions.co.uk/onl…ox/

this is the 400 lm version

The M7R X 8307-RX rechargeable version is 400 lm. So the info in post #2 is wrong, this is the 225 lm version.

I think the op need to change the tilte to 225 lm.

But the LED Lenser official website shows the silver version as the M7 and rates it as 400 lumens.

ledlenser.com/uk/…m7/

So it must be a newer version with the updated LED......probably.

Still 225 lumen is still far more than you should need unless you're signalling the international space station.

INTERESTINGLY......they have the same dropoff, 280 metres. You'd think the 400lumen one would go further....so maybe the 400lumen is just marketing, or a special mode.

That depends how you define better - all figures from the manufacturer's product comparison tool:

Torch model M7 M7R M7RX P7.2
Luminous flux * 400 lm 400 lm 600 lm 320 lm
Luminous range * 280 m 280 m 235 m 260 m
Luminous period ** 35 h 40 h 10 h 50 h

Given that the M7 is brighter, has a longer range and is more technically advanced, the only way in which the P7.2 is better is in run-time, which is not my idea of better all round.

I wonder how many of these Amazon have....do 'deals of the day' ever run out of stock?

You're quoting the wrong figures. This torch is 220 lumen and 11 hours burn time.

Read the Amazon product description...

"Supplied with wrist-strap, belt clip and 4 x AAA Alkaline batteries, the torch also has the following technical specifications:Lumens: 220Burn time: Up to 11 hoursDimensions: 137mm x 37mmWeight: 196g."

I bought one last Christmas. I know how bright it is.

Yeah, but 400lm sounds better.

Very confusing.

Looking at various sites, it appears the black version is 220 lm and the silver version is 400 lm.

The thing is I'm right, so I won't need to. I don't understand where people are getting the idea it's 400 lumen.

The figures I already quoted in the Amazon product description only mention 220 lumen. Not 400... or am I missing something?

Point us to the page on the manufacturer's website that shows you are right then.

Manufacturers do improve specs. from time to time, and, strangely enough, they tend to quote the correct specs. for their products more so than the likes of Amazon do. Until then I'll stick with the manufacturer's data for this model.

In the meantime, I'm off to get some sleep - there's only so much time one can spend arguing with all night security guards and petrol station attendants!

Was hoping this was the P7.2 after missing the lightning deal on Friday even though I clicked on it half a second after the offer became live (no joy on the wait list)- they must be very popular!

I was in the same boat! Not a chance it was gone before it even loaded

I've solved it.

The updated version is 400 lm but i don't think this is the updated version which is silver. This one is the original all black version and is definitely only 220 lm

This updated light features an all new LED chip, economical battery usage with longer run times, and 80% more light output than our original M7 – 400 bright lumens! Even our reflector lens, the heart of LED LENSER’s patented Advanced Focus System™, was recalculated with a larger lens diameter resulting in a more uniform lit area and improved optimized light distribution. The all new M7 allows you to have the brightest, clearest light possible so you’re ready for any situation.

It's a really good torch and even if it's the 220 lumen version, it's ridiculously bright.

The flood light / spot transition works really well too...The brightness on this and my P7.2 is pretty much identical... the battery life is slightly better on the P7.2.
Also the M7 has more modes, such as strobing, flashing (the 'tactical' modes). I find these slightly hamper my use of the torch as you have to cycle through the various modes to get back to full beam / half beam, which is all you ever really use.

Yes, I posted that info on the first page but for some reason it didn't appear. Silver is the new-new version. Which might explain why they are getting rid of these so they can stock the new one.

Nice one, I've looked on the comparison like you say even if it is the lower lumens it compares to my dads which is bright enough. I've been on the strobe end of one which was nice

This might explain why Amazon are shifting their old stock at such a low price... Amazon's return policy is excellent so even if it is the old torch I'm sure you could return it for a refund...

I'm thinking of taking a punt, no great loss at this price.
