    Whatever is cheap, they are all made in China anyway, I doubt I could find one made in the EU!

    £72 for a Chinese mass made torch which probably cost less than £1 to make? lol, and the site is "BangGood" ?!

    Hmmm... Im assuming it might be legitimate?

    It's not £72 with the code, used Banggood loads of times never has one failed delivery.

    It’s a 100% legit site and the torches are not £1 mass made crap. Even if they were mass made they’re no different to iPhones etc that are manufacturered in China.

    Granted there is some tat on there, but it’s priced appropriately and you know what you’re getting.

    Anyone know of a good small torch with a really tight beam profile that throws well for a decent price.
    I have a Convoy BD 01 but need better.

    Wouldn't a head torch be better?

    For up-close use (like the computer work, you describe) you don't want too bright - it'll be unusable.

    Yes but it's highly unlikely that it will only have one setting which is high.

    Just get a little Olight i3E. They're only a tenner and run off AAA's. I have one on my keyring and it's very handy when rummaging around inside my PC. :D

    Anyone suggest something that fits the following:
    Small <100mm
    Zoom
    Can be charged by USB or use AA/AAA
    Waterproof
    Upto £30

    I've had a couple from Amazon but have all failed after a short while. Need it before I go away in a couple of weeks, so ordering from China might not be an option...


    Thanks!
