Rated 1 out of 5Â by rules Worst torch ever
After fully charging this product overnight, it lasted less than 5 minutes, less than helpful as I was under floorboards and left literally in the dark. This was the first time of use!!

The unit purchased in October 2012 only lasted 9 months or so before the battery collapsed and would not hold charge.
However, Screwfix were happy to replace the unit with a complete new one. A replacement battery would cost something like Â£8-10

Initially the unit did not charge and a wire had never been connected inside.
Bulb didn't last very long and needed replacing and now the battery only lasts about 5 minutes after a full charge.
Looking for a better quality replacement.

I bought this as a replacement for a similar one which now does not hold a charge. I have not used it much yet, but first impressions are that it does a reasonable job. Some useful accessories are provided, e.g. car charger, but unlike my previous one, there is no adjustable "foot" to hold it at a convenient angle. The mains charger is built into a stand, so it takes up a fair amount of room and does not easily fit into a drawer.
Ignoring the meaningless claim of "1 million candlepower", the torch has a fine beam angle which makes it good for illuminating distant objects. The battery drain is said to be "medium" but I am not expecting the charge to last long, so this torch is best used in short bursts. In any case, it gets quite hot in use.
