To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Purchased this for my father when it was "advertised" at roughly £40 with Prime Delivery, the comparison between Maglite's products at the bottom of the page clearly stated the beam was "LED", which it was not.
The beam is weak and struggles to light up a medium sized room, the torch feels light and cheap compared to a £15 Watchman's Torch that was purchased from a Highstreet shop last year. It feels like if this torch was to be dropped once it would snap in two.
Even for the currently advertised price, which is around £25 with shipping from America, you can get a torch with much better build quality and a much, much stronger beam.
This torch is worth no more than £10. If you want a torch like this go to a Highstreet shop.
Probably my fault had a previous Mag light with super LED bright beam . didn't even think to check they would be still selling such old tech . my fault . this torch reminds me of the old cycle lights I had in the 60s which where so dim and yellow ! Beware Have given 1 star as no option to give none
