This torch is a well made and easy to use product. It is far superior to the vast majority of torches on sale in mainstreet shops (also do be aware of major stores still selling the previous generation model which is much less powerful). I have owned this product since launch and it appears to be as well made as those from 10/20 years ago. However, there is some slight battery rattle at times-which was never a feature of previous models. Overall, it is very good. I like the fact that it is powered by readily available D Cell batteries, and the presence of the strobe mode. In comparison with an average torch (those owned by people who do not shop on Torch Direct!), it is streets ahead. It has an impressive level of brightness and a decent throw. It would be an excellent torch to posess in powercut as it can stand (just) on its tail end and easily light up room by itself. The main criticism I would have is that when used outside the beam lacks direction. It feels like some of the output is wasted, as the ability to focus the beam is very limited. It is nothing like as adjustable as the focusing feature on a Led Lenser for instance. Overall, it is very good though. I cannot see why anyone would consider the C size Maglite or the 2D version, based on the prices and respective outputs. I would perhaps consider the matt finish version though, as it is easier to grip-especially when the handle is wet. Four stars!

I work in security and I know what you think I must walk around like a giant douche with a maglite. No I donít fact is I would never have bought one if I hadnít seen one at work. I was on the market for some insanely bright bit of kit because I was fed up with my £10 eBay torch work th so much claimed lumens. After many hours and days scouring the net I was set to buy an olight marauder x7r however as stated before a gentleman who I see at work.
After having a go and feeling the solid piece of kit in my hands I decided the power was plenty for what I needed it for. I work nights at a castle and have to do my points inside where there is no lights and this torch works a treat. Rated at only 625 lumens this thing is insane for that amount of lumens. It lights up the great halls and shines all the way down at the gate where the wood starts when Iíve adjusted the head.
My only gripe with this torch is it says it goes from spot to flood but when I twist my head it goes from flood to spot to flood. I would have preferred to go from say fully locked to the left flood then fully locked to the right focus but it doesnít I have to find that in the middle to get a focus beam.
Other than that itís an excellent product, build quality is really suprising itís really solid. The service provided by Torch Direct is second to none. I wasnít to hesitant to order from them as Iíve heard nothing bad and Iím pleased to say my very first order went smoothly. Yes I said first order lol I will be back on this site to order anything I need in the future. Great job guys and girls. 5*.

Torch was delivered promptly and at a reasonable price but I could not get it to work. Several e-mails passed back and forth before I was persuaded to try some new batteries and that fixed the problem. Very helpful and very patient staff made this process a pleasant experience despite my original annoyance. Well done Torch Direct - some proper customer service.

Good beam, long and consistent. Solid feel to the torch. Should give many years of service.

Replacement for an old favourite, and impressively brighter, with options of bright/ low/ strobe. Highly recommended. Delivered rapidly.

Excellent product rightly the best torch money can buy. Suggest though doing away with the strobe setting as cannot see a use for it. Also a bespoke rubber impact resistant sleeve for the torch a good idea. Very prompt delivery on time as promised. Your site inludes a telephone number to order which is much better than just on line as this personifies the personnel touch and ensures good service and a contact to come back to rather than just a faceless automated call centre.
Will use this Company again and recommend to associates.
Bright product and service

The Maglite has excellent brightness and is easy to reprogram - service was excellent too with one day delivery in Christmas week, complete with laser etching! Makes Amazon look slow.
