  • Good torch, but it rattles a little...

    Pros:

    Good bright halogen bulb, especially when using rechargable 3.6v batteries.

    Quite solid case.

    Good reflector, with solid umbra - no ringing.

    Cons:

    Works better with protected CR123s, since they're a bit longer. The extra length seems to hold the batteries in place better, stopping them from losing contact with the torch head.

    Rattles with non-protected batteries and can sometimes flicker when torch is shaken. This is bad.

    OtherThoughts:

    Don't know if my torch was completely standard, as it came WITH some rechargable, non-protected batteries. There was also a chip out of the paintwork on the base.

    Could QA team have left them in by mistake. Not complaining, since always good to have a spare set of batts!

    Bottomline:

    Not the cheapest torch, and I have to say that I love LEDs better than halogen, but this is definitely a great torch. The rattle is off-putting, and I'm mod it a little bit to remove this. I'm happy with it, and I'd recommend it to anyone else.
