The G32 is the first 2 AA battery powered torch from Coast available in the UK, and has been updated to now offer a high output of 465 lumens but also the choice of low mode for extra versatility.
Using the two included Coast extreme performance AA alkaline batteries the G32 provides a run-time of 4 hours, 30 minutes on high or 17 hours on low. Alternatively the dual power option means the torch can also be powered by a Coast Zithion-X ZX555 micro USB rechargeable lithium-ion battery (not included).
Quick half presses of the tail switch from off cycles between high / low, and you can fully press the button in on the required output, giving you the option to choose the right level for your application. Alternatively if the torch is turned fully on and off in quick succession it will also switch between high / low. If the button isn't pressed in quick succession, the light will revert to come on in high as default with a single full press. Holding down the half press will provided momentary operation for quick tasks, and once released the light will go off.
The Pure Beam Focusing Optic System focuses the beam between a spot beam with a range of up to 134 metres, and a flood beam with no dark rings typically associated with focusing torches, by twisting the head of the torch backwards and forwards.
As well as easy carrying, the handy pocket clip also allows for convenient access when attached to clothing, making it ideal for engineers, maintenance workers and the like who may regularly inspect equipment or machinery. The two way design means the clip can also be removed from the tail and attached near the head to be able to attach in the opposite direction if that suits your needs better.

My previous torch was a well known brand but it lasted for only four years so I decided to look for something new. Coast G32 is very bright and the aluminium construction is robust. Compared to other brands with similar specifications, it is better value too.
Searching for a well built two AA-sized battery powered torch with good light output and reasonable run time did not bring up many options. The Coast G32 is one of the few that met these requirements for a reasonable price. After a few weeks of daily use I am satisfied with its performance.Being powered by AA batteries means I have the option of alkaline or rechargeable batteries and no need to worry about the fire risk of Lithium-ion cells. My primary use for the torch is walking my dog in the evenings where we go from areas with street lighting where there is no need for additional light, to dark fields where the torch is very much needed. I like the simple no nonsense two mode operation: full brightness or reduced (but still useful) output with extended run time. The latter has been useful while working in a loft space for several hours to get light where items in the loft were casting shadows from dim mains powered lighting.The two batteries are inserted end to end. This makes the length of the torch which, at a tad under 17cm does it than those powered by single 18650 Lithium-ion cells. However, it is still short enough to fit in the pockets of the coats I wear to when out on dark evenings.The service from Torch Direct was efficient and the price competitive compared to other online retailers.Obviously I can't comment on reliability of the torch having only used it for a few weeks, but it looks and feels well built and I expect to get many years of use out of it.
