Thread: small handy but good torch

  1. #1

    small handy but good torch

    As per title I'm looking for something that would fit in a pocket or bum bag.
    Don't want to get caught out by expensive replacement batteries or suchlike.
    Just wondering what others use/ideas please.
    It's for summer evenings if something dropped.
    Already have a good petzl head torch for serious dark work,it's great but a bit bulky.
    Don't mind paying...buy right buy once.
    Thanks

    if it's just for emergencies... or for the glove compartment, one of the little dyno (?) lights are nice. Just crank it a few seconds to charge it. Other than that, one of the little cree led's are good, cheap, and some have an adapter to take 3 AAA batteries. Think I payed 8 euro including delivery for mine with a charger, 18650 battery, and an adapter for the AAA's.... Check ebay... comes from china but had mine in a week...... get a green cree and you'll be surprised how little it bothers animals.....

    If you want to spend a bit more then you won't go far wrong with one of Zebralights products: ZebraLight Torches and Head Lamps | Zebra Light | Flashaholics.co.uk

    They do small, handy, and incredibly bright torches that use regular AA batteries.

    Get yoursef a Fentix TK 15, I had one many years superb reliable bit of kit and a rechargable battery lasts for months. Very robust and has survived all sorts of bangs and drops. Faultless

    I have a couple of these, they are great for the money, I use them for lamping and always have one with me in my pocket for general use, at the price you really cant better them, they run on 3 AAA batteries which last well.
