    Got it this morning.Certainly bright and is made of metal,so worth the purchase price I suppose.

    Got it, not bad at all. I seems to have some kind of sos capability. When you turn it on it comes on regular, then of you half press the button it turns to strobe, then again and if my Morse code translation is correct is flashes "SOS"

    Thanks OP

    I got the two I bought yesterday morning.

    They're very very bright.

    I think it'd be useful even for children at Halloween.

    I have it just in case my electricity goes which it usually does at this time of year!

    I bought one of these from T Mart recently can't remember the price e6 approx.Great light can be heavy on battery use.Better to get the optional 18650 Li ion battery and charger for it.I'd say 3 AAA A Batteries would only last 20 to 30 mins on full power.Correct me if I'm wrong! It gets warm in use as it's quite powerful. Great light though!

    My single {2700 rechargeable} AA 5w led torch (better than messing around with x3 aaa's in a barrel) will run a full month on almost daily short occasional use.

    One advantage of LED is the low power, so 3/5w cree chips about the same as a kitchen radio on low/standby settings, and no complicated transformers, nor circuit boards to power.

    The 7/10w versions can be a bit more power hungry though and can be some heat related issues with them. Had a 20w pure led floodlight but it burnt itself out after using for just couple of months, so they don't like getting hot.

    Imagine once led's replace the street lights of the planet, it will shave maybe 10% circa of the earth's electric bill. The chap that discovered them picked up a Nobel prize recently.

    No he didn't, they passed him over, he's not impressed about it either.

    Nobel Prizes are gone to f*ck now, getting worse every year.

    Ah so it went to other group who focused on the 'bluer' led spectrum. Low-energy blue LEDs are used to create a more efficient white-light lightbulb. Prefer regular blue to the warmer glow but read blue can interfere with melatonin signals if used at night.

    4/5 of the earth's electric consumption is for lighting usage apparently, struth.

    Nah, its only about 20% in the US and it will be less elsewhere, nowhere near 4/5.

    AAA's as mentioned by kneemos but it will be a good bit brighter with an 18650 battery.

    Do you mind posting what date it was shipped on. Might give others a rough time frame on delivery.

    Mine shipped 26th September but nothing yet.

    Thanks

    Best to forget about it, and one day it'll come along as a lovely surprise. The last couple of things I ordered from Tmart took 6 weeks to arrive. In fact, I've just checked now, and stuff I ordered on September 16th still haven't arrived.

    Don't worry, it'll arrive, but don't go checking the mail for it every day hoping to see it

    Great torch tbh, twice as big as I expected and ultra bright, looks exactly like those €50-80 ones you see in display cases in fishing and hunting shops, thanks OP.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,776 ✭✭✭pissed


    Still have not received mine.:(


  • Registered Users Posts: 930 ✭✭✭jousting with chairs


    Me either but the postage is very slow from China atm.
    This week I received a battery charger that I had ordered in early September and refunded by the seller a few weeks ago so chances are that it will come ............eventually.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,670 ✭✭✭jay0109


    Mine arrived Friday.
    Good torch
