For anyone looking for a good head torch, see https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07RL6BM17/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I bought this identical head torch last week from Amazon and I'm well impressed. USB Rechargeable and the induction ( proximity ) sensor is very useful.
(y) That’s the joke I was going for, thanks buffy
your d and f keys are transposed I think? XD
(lol) Bet you felt like a right silly duck!
FFS, I've done that twice today (lol) I told my sister she needs to change her ass settings on her phone (lol)
Note - don't be tempted to try using the extension tube and 2x 14500's....
I have never understood this fascination with expensive torches. For me a torch is something I use when there is a powercut. Are there clubs for torch fanatics? I have a vision of a bunch of anoraks in a field flashing their lights.
Extension tube available for an extra £2.50:http://m.gearbest.com/diy-parts-and-tools/pp_195408.html
No extension tube but got the S15 off gearbest for less than £12. May not exactly the same. Oos at mo though: http://m.gearbest.com/led-flashlights/pp_79491.html
But my tourch had 4.8 out of 5 with hundreds of reviews.
Glad you received it, how does it compare to your other lights? You have a two level light with a strobe mode there. What level is the low mode and the runtime? Have you got link to a review to allow a comparison? What is the weight like? How long is the waterproofing good for? It looks like it has a collimator lens on the front rather than an orange peel reflector so I guess a lot of the output is wasted inside the body of the light? What is the beam profile like ? Does the zoom let water in ? etc etc etc

Maglite Solitaire LED Torch - only £11.90 (for grey) delivered from Torch Direct£11.90
A well known torch that comes in very handy has been upgraded with a LED bulb, giving it an impressive 37 lumens from an AAA battery. The torch costs £9.95 for the grey (£16.95 fo… Read more
What do you expect from a single AAA battery. Other manufactures use standard cree tech, whereas maglite develop there own tech.
Compared to something like an LED Lenser X21R, then yes. Hell, even Portland Bill is brighter! *rolls eyes*
Yeah, the Nitecores are good, I'll give you that. However, you're talking about an 18.5% increase in output for 93% increase in cost.
Impressive 37 lumens ??? Sorry it's very very weak.
Ok - forget Ultrafire (who I agree might have questionable build quality at times) but I would rather have a Nitecore T2 or T5 @ £20 / £30 respectively. Far more lumens & respectable build quality too. I used to be a big fan of Maglite's (indeed still own 3 myself - all upgraded to LED drop-ins) and yes have called on their lifetime guarantee too a couple of times, but quite simply Maglite have not kept pace with the times. They're bringing out stuff now that was on the market 5 or 6 years ago. Heck - even HM Constabulary don't permit the carry of Maglites anymore down here due to their (possible) use as a weapon ;)
Looks OK from the reviews, main thing to avoid are cheap Chinese chargers/batteries as there's some nightmare stories.Cancel that, it does look disturbingly similar to this (also unbranded) one from here which ended up going bang:http://www.torchythebatteryboy.com/p/18650-batteries-chargers.html.. Supposedly had the CE Mark:But then had nice design features like this mains wire close to the DC circuit (see page for more on just the one unbranded charger)So you pays your money, you takes your choice. But £12.99 for a charger and two batteries, there's gonna have been some corners cut. (but not 240V supply wires) :p
Hi roger what do you think of this for a cheaper option http://www.amazon.co.uk/Battery-Charger-Batteries-1600mAh-Li-ion/dp/B00BF9K7FI/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
Link dead for me
