Please read some of the many superb Customer reviews - exceptional!
This incredibly bright CREE Q5 LED torch utilises the very popular and well documented low profile Cree XP-E emitter, with a Q5 output bin, coupled with the PMMA lens produces a very efficient and superb light giving a maximum of 180 lumens. **Do not be duped by FALSE Lumen figures given on a lot of other CREE LED torches sold on seller platforms and auction sites. It is not possible to achieve 900 Lumens at this price point! Anyone can print spurious numbers to make a torch sound like it will be bright - please check our images and videos for factual evidence!**
So bright, could it be classified as a weapon? Not that we are condoning pointing it in the direction of someone’s face or looking directly into it. Just saying that IF required it will definitely render someone momentarily blind should you find yourself in a late night sticky situation!
At first glance the torch appears extremely high quality, once in the hand this feeling is further backed up. The incredibly strong outer casing is constructed from Aerospace-grade 6061T Aluminium Alloy and at 31mm diameter is a good comfortable width. At the tech end of the torch, the heavyweight lens protection bezel measures out at 46mm in diameter. It is here that the anodised green, ‘magnetic click’ zoom focusing ring is located. It is excellently designed and I feel a better and faster way of zooming than the ‘push/pull‘ style.
The six section rectangular cut outs running down the length of the body provide ample grip and are a refreshing aesthetic change from the typical heavy knurling or hatching style associated with torches of this size or ilk.
The 3 x ‘C’ Cell batteries (NOT INCLUDED) are simply loaded through the shaft and once loaded the whole lot weighs in at just shy of 500g, giving enough ‘meat’ in the hand to feel safe at night. The end cap has a thick rubber O ring creating a water tight seal (I ran it under the tap with no problems at all) and also comprises a high quality strong spring giving a tight connection.
The body is finished off with a simple raised push on/off rubberised button; this button offers 3 ‘click’modes.
1 click for Full Power mode
2 clicks for Low Power mode
3 clicks for Strobe function
The lens is constructed from PMMA which is a clear plastic acrylic material which is often used as a replacement for glass. It is also used in a lot of high quality lens based products owed to it’s very clear and bright nature - PMMA is commonly used in places where shatter-proof glass or windows are required, such as the puck barriers found in ice-hockey rinks and you have seen what a clattering they take! Essentially that makes this lens very bright and incredibly hard wearing.
To summarise, this torch is ideal for many outdoor pursuits given its size, range of power, water resistance and durability. Anyone into camping, orienteering, fishing or even hunting will be more than impressed. I am by no means an outdoors kind of guy and even I've started to use mine daily to simply walk the dogs. At this price point it's one of those items that you can never really have enough of whether it's kept under the stairs, in the kitchen drawer or the shed etc. Check out the 'C' Cell battery deals too - 7dayshop has all your power needs required!
