I can recommend this fantastic powerful all-metal little torch with built-in rechargeable battery (micro usb), front led (adjustable throw) and COB strip light on the side. COB strip light very useful for lighting up an area.

less than 4 inches long (I have it measured as 9cm x 2.5 cm at widest point)- very pocket-able. seems very similar (if not the same) to the one posted above by another poster.

great little torch tbh.

only $2.80 delivered - got mine in 2 to 3 weeks.

I have four of these bought at different times.

They are not the same as cheapo Eurogiant lights - they are tiny, light and give off an amazing beam. You can tell they are proper brand kit.

Yep, there are cheap torches available year round from Aliexpress and the like. I would have posted them if I thought they were worth posting.

This is a quality little light from a good brand, and the kind of thing that's nice enough to give as a stocking-filler. I believe they ship from NI, with the last deal most people had them in a day or two.

Thank you, teotwawki!

I3E is one of the best AAA torches available right now. I compared it to ThruNite T01 with its supposedly 125 Lumen output and I3E was brighter.

Got this torch last time it was posted. Arrived within a day or two, did ship from the north.
Great torch and amazed how good the quality is, easily equal of led lenser and maglites.

I got one from the previous deal, and another two yesterday. Great little flash lights with an unbelievable amount of light and you really wouldn't know they're in your pocket, also have the Astrolux on the right in Teotwaki's picture, another great little flashlight too.

Thanks OP.
I ordered based on its quality and size compared to wish Tyler products.
Need something for work, checking fire/smoke dampers, shafts etc but didn’t need anything that’s bulky. This can clip into my site jacket and I won’t even notice its there.

You got a "massive" torch

compared with this fella , I know it's £12 but it's rechargeable by micro usb and outputs 150 lumens.

I would have opted for that. USB charging would be worth it alone.

I couldn't resist anymore and opened a second account to get the black one. I'm so ashamed.

I am tempted to do the same for the UV one.
