Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit pricey compared to identical types of torch from a certain online auction site. However, at least it's got a shop warranty here :-) Quality is much as I had expected, with the torch well built and solid feeling. Light output is good with the three modes working well. There is however no documentation within the package, so you are assumed to know exactly what you are doing with it. This is a replacement for a previous torch of a similar design which had the led burn out. The lesson? Don't be tempted to change the supplied batteries for higher specification versions. It's probable that they are matched to the LED requirements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great little torch, comes with two rechargeable batteries that seem to last forever! I used my torch extensively to survey ponds to survey for newts over the summer and tested it's waterproofing to the max! It survived being submerged for long periods several times and also being dropped. It is a small, rugged and truly powerful torch that is well worth the money. The only issue is that the strap was a little fragile, so if you buy one of these torches, invest in a new, stronger strap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this torch before Christmas and it has become my favorite one to date ( I have a dozen or more different torches ). In fact, I like its qualities so much that I bought another one for my other half to carry with her when she walks the dog, day or night. It gives off a brilliant light. It shines a very strong spot beam as well as a very decent wide light at the same time. Other torches I own, have a wide to spot beam feature, but not only does this torch eliminate the need for that feature, it outshines the other brands of torches too. It's small enough to slip into your pocket, or in it's sheath and on to your belt. It's the sturdiest, well made torch that I've ever come across, that could also be used to defend of intruders or attackers, if needed, without damaging it. I've dropped a large number or times, without damage, other than chipping the paint a bit. A high quality product that gets five stars from me, and five more from my girlfriend!! Cheers Maplin*****

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent torch for the money. I was working to a budget and was nearly swayed by a less powerful and cheaper torch that claimed to be rain-proof. Having examined this torch, I'd say it's probably rain-proof anyway with rubber washers helping seal the screw threads at each end. The weak points are potentially the rubber cover over the small socket where the car charger jack fits and the lens glass - I can't see a rubber washer here - but I'll be using it in the rain anyway as I'm pretty sure it'll be rain proof. It's easy to remove the ends of this torch making not just battery replacement simple but also the CREE LED unit should you need to. As mentioned by someone else above, it doesn't come with any instructions. It took my 13-year-old daughter to work out that you don't have to switch it off and back on again every time you want to change mode - simply depress the on/off switch slightly and it'll toggle between them. I use the torch to walk the dogs at night over some pretty grotty terrain, so need something light and powerful. The high power beam is simply incredible - I've owned motorbikes with less powerful headlights! It's so bright in fact, that it'll ruin your night vision so I tend to use it on the low power setting which is more than adequate. I have no use for the strobe-effect setting, nor can I think of any, but it's there if you need it. The packaging for this torch is excellent and it would make a very nice gift. The box is designed to be kept and everything fits into it nicely - the torch with its nylon lanyard attached, 2 batteries (so you'll always have a fully-charged spare), mains charger, car charger and a canvas case designed to fit onto a belt. The torch is about 15cm in length, 3.3cm at its widest and 2.5cm around the barrel. It weighs in at just under 200 grams with the battery installed. As for fending off an intruder as some people have previously mentioned, all I'll say is that it's no four-D-cell Maglight! I'm very glad I bought this torch and recommend it highly.

How do you know when batteries are charged using the wall adapter? In the car both lights seem to stay red. Upon using the wall adapter the light on the actual socket has turned green but the light on the charger hub for the battery remains red?

Asked by: Gez123
There is no visual indication that the batteries are full I am sorry to say.
