Re: I'm thinking of getting a new EDC torch?

The link doesn't work for me mate, but the torches do look interesting. I'm half and half with 18650s, while I prefer "normal" batteries , they just dont have the power for the more high power stuff. I do like a AAA as my keyring light though, easy to get as a backup. Thanks. The ones that take the...

Re: I'm thinking of getting a new EDC torch?

My current favourite torch is the Zanflare F1 . Though the price varies quite a lot. These look quite interesting and a good price, I'll have to have a look at some reviews when I get time. Trouble is Mr's S is starting to notice how much kit I'm buying, and buying her the same only goes so far ;) ...

Re: I'm thinking of getting a new EDC torch?

I just bought, on a whim, a Jetbeam. Goes to 480 lumens running on a 14500 and takes AA as well. Would recommend it (http://www.uk-preppers.co.uk/forum/posting.php?mode=reply&f=15&t=15556) I have a number 18650 torches and whilst I like them for brightness and runtimes, the lack of an easily availa...

Re: I'm thinking of getting a new EDC torch?

If you have a Maplins local to you, they are selling all their stock at up to 60% off, including torches, floodlights, worklights and batteries. It's costing me a fortune - I go past one twice a day on the way to work... Got one farily close so I'll pop over in the morning and have a look on the wa...

Re: I'm thinking of getting a new EDC torch?

As a fellow torchaholic I'll be following this with interest. Sorry mate, can't think of anything with a 1000 lumen, personally I don't need it for EDC. I'll see you at next weeks TA meeting mate... ;) Ok maybe I don't really need a 1000, 500/700 is handy though if you need to check out something i...
