I live in Denmark, I ordered the torch on 17th March and it arrived on the 23rd of march thank you everyone at Torch Direct for a speedy service. As for the torch itself, I look forward to having it with me on the pennines this year and also when I'm out kayaking at night.

Quality charger

Just sent back a cheaper charger that didn't work, and on the recommendation of a friend bought this (and the BC 30 bike light to go with it). It charges fast or slow and (so far) seems a quality piece of kit.

I have used the charger on partly charged and fully discharged 18650 Panasonic batteries without any issues. The batteries did not get as hot as the non branded charger that came with a torch. Despite the display being small it is very clear and easy to read. Very pleased with the purchase.

High quality charger with good versatility to allow choice of charging current for different size batteries, and of voltage for different types of batteries. It was very easy to use, with concise but adequate instructions, and a good readout showing both the current battery voltage, and the stage in the charge cycle. This is the first time I have purchased from Torch Direct, and I have to say that I was very happy with all aspects of the purchase, from the ease of use of the website, through to the packaging, and how quickly the items were received. I will certainly be using Torch Direct again.
