Torch discussion HERE :P

Post by Projectblue » Fri Oct 25, 2019 8:15 pm

So,
Apparently someone is interested in torches. So we have started a discussion about them.
https://www.ledlenser-store.co.uk/search/strobe

So the above is what we were talking about. Effectively its a non harmful distraction device designed to disorientate. And boy, does it work.

This flashlight you have looks very nicely crafted, almost like jewelry, i am sure i would be very afraid to let it fall in the mud if it was mine.

Big fan of flashlights myself, and knives and honing among other things, i ventured a lot through budgetlightforum or candlepowerforum, from there i went the "cheap" way, scrapped laptop batteries dismount to have 18650 batteries, less than 15USD flashlights from ali or BGood, it takes a looooong time to choose, and of course a good battery charger, put a little tweak here and there on the flashlights (mostly interchangeable parts built around 18650 batteries) some silicon grease for added moisture protection, i am a happy user since.
Of course there is no comparison to ledlenser offering, apples and oranges...



In the end, the one i use the most is my headband ATEX, i feel safer in situation like reconnecting gas conduit, or doing mechanic around fuel tank.

Dear admin(s) as it is the first time i try to share an image here, please tell me if it is appropriate method or if other means is better.

After using a maglite for years at work, I was always keen to find something better, brighter and longer lasting. That when I discovered the LED Lenser range.
My Maglite was a 4D-Cell and cost around £45 in 1993; the LED Lenser seemed expensive when I looked at it, being so small and short at £69, but what a difference. I always thought there was nothing like the maglite, until I bought the LED lenser; now there's no going back.
The one I bought was the predecessor of the T7M LED Torch; magnificent for working on the farm, the focused beam shines 100 yards, with the light maxing out at 250 yards. Not bad at all for a torch not quite the length of my hand, running on 3 AAA batteries! Just sorry I didnt opt for the more expensive rechargeable version.

OldWarDog, have you considered using 18650 lithium batteries instead of 3xAAA in your flashlight?

The cylindric adapter might be just the same size. 18650 is 18mm diameter and 65 mm in length. 4.5 volts when charged plenty juice in it amongst many advantages from this kind of batteries...

Then you would use this model of low priced good battery charger (links below), and just lock and load your batteries in the flashlight.

Some quick reading from a website to apprehend what's it about... (commercial vulgarisation)

One european trusted provider :

And then, to save a little if you are not in a hurry, plethora of choice from here :

I buy the good ol T6 LED tordhes off ebay, cheap, VERY bright and I change them every 12 months because most LED torches fail on their switches due to the nature of LED power supply. Corrosion is imminent.
Thats why I am reluctant to pay £100's for an LED torch.
