any recomendations for a decent LED torch about 3D maglite size ?
3D maglite with led head.
seems ideal but anything rechargable?
looks good but HFM!!!
Anyone looking for a budget thrower then sign up to BLF and leave a "interested" reply in this thread:
Price should be between £20 - £25
Looks great but maybe postage and taxes more then double the price. Im not upto date with what is the customs limit nowadays
No it won't, it'll most prob be shipped from Banggood so postage will be minimal.
ok Im just being pessimistic then, I'm in at that price. Havent got anything that bright, can never have enough torches
nice (comparative) beam shot in this post though he should have turned off the internal light also
Anyone got a Nitecore TUP? Looks decent.
What's the go to single cell (18650) led torch these days please?
Need a few more, pretty sure thats a dam good price for a powerful torch and to answer the post above this torch runs on 18650 so might as well add your name for it.
Just spotted this head torch. I have one similar kind of design ( i imagine this isnt so different), it is very cheap but useful for when in tight space trying to get something done after dark with no help at short notice. I only ever use it as a backup but I do use 2 18650 batteries and also that it will charge it also, ideal starter imo
^^ thats the random gamble on a no name and this one would be a good little branded torch
The Prince's patina has gone even further, copper is a great material
The difference between the inside of the barrel vs the outside is night and day.
Rather impressive. Makes the price even more worth it knowing there aren't two Princes out there that look alike.
Depends what you'd use it for...
I really really want one and have been seconds away from pulling the trigger one the purchase for a while, now.
But - They are a little expensive for a 1000 lumen torch, and the buttons are meant to be quite mushy... It's got decent (claimed) battery life at the mid-range, though and is about as big as I'd want to go for a pocket torch, but still plays second fiddle to the larger powerhouse of a main torch around the single 18650 size... and if you have need of Search & Rescue type lights, the 18650 in turn would be second fiddle to the S&R large coke can, hand-unit or manpack spot/flood type.
Do you really need it, or are there better options?
A decision not helped by so many of the reviews coming from walty EDC prepper geeks!
I know they're a little bit cheaper from DX, FastTech and so on, but I prefer a UK-based retailer that ensures no counterfeits get through, and at whom I can go scream warranty words if things go **** up... plus I can't stand waiting 8+ weeks just to get something on the cheap.
This easily met their pre-order target. I've ordered mine and it looks like so have many others.
Only problem is I don't have a 26650 cell, any recommendations? I'll be ordering it on it's own so don't want to pay loads in postage.
Or if you don't want to wait for them to be delivered from china then a couple of 21700's
