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.
If you don't have time to read all the review - just buy this if you need a torch!
I use this daily at work. It's much smaller than other torches (it's smaller than a whiteboard marker pen) - I even had someone go to take it out of my pocket as they needed to 'borrow my pen' (although I did question their eyesight!).
In 8 months of use I'm on my 3rd set of batteries (but as I said, it gets used a lot). I've noticed a distinct drop-off in brightness when the batteries are nearing the end of their life, so tend to change them quickly when I spot that.
However, my main praise must be reserved for just how bright the light is! It is so much better than the old 'bulb' maglites. It is powerful enough to light a path when it is pitch black, and there's no 'black spot' in the middle of the light. It also weighs very little.
I think the simplest test of how useful something is to you is: If you lost it today, would you buy another tomorrow. My answer is yes, without a doubt.
I’ve always been a fan of Maglite’s and have several. Added this one to my collection, I find it has a very good high intensity beam for such a small torch, 100 lumins not 111 as stated. The only criticism would be the pocket clip, once fitted to the torch it has a tendency to move around if caught whilst holding or operating the torch, but apart from that a very handy discrete in size torch
It's LED, so it's very bright. And it doesn't weigh much. So, it's a bright light light. It would be useless in a self-defence situation, but is excellent where you want your non-dominant hand easily holding a torch that's chucking out masses of light.
Super bright little torch,probably the only one most will ever need.Beam is a lot brighter than previous model,and clearly lights up all areas of our garden.Can be used in candle mode too,and battery life with lower brightness setting is phenomenal.This should last a lifetime.
