Excellant torch spoiled by switching mechanism
Saturday, 14 December 2013  | 

This is a very powerful torch. It is easy to switch to full power, and to change the intensity output. Trouble is it is too easy and the torch regularly changes the output without my being aware until I need it. Very annoying, and spoils an otherwise excellent product, which would otherwise have 5 stars

Excellent light but confusing switch options
Wednesday, 2 October 2013  | 

Powerful beam with excellent searchlight function. Lightweight but plenty of lumens. Changing from turbo to normal very easy by twisting the head of the torch. Switching to different power settings by multiple clicks of the switch is just annoying. Recommended but they should have a better light changing system. Torch Direct service and delivery excellent.
