    Just a little heads up ..ordered 3 of these torches,first two that turned up i didn't look at as where for me mates when mine turned up i put batts in and within seconds the bulb unit started to flick on and off,then when i unscrewed checked connections the thread on tail cap shredded;so i opened up the other 2 units,one didnt have a battery holder in and after using the one from my now fooked torch it works,didn't play to long as not mine,so in short 3 torches one doesn't work one incomplete and one is fine..Just a warning

    Unlucky I'd say, I have several 'Cheap Chinese' torches none of which have failed me, granted a tailcap switch went on a three year old one, but given the fact it had been hammered in sewers/caves/mines then I think that's more than reasonable wear and tear

    Sure there is bound to be some shit out there, but I think from a reputable buyer with some kind of returns policy is worth it's weight in gold..

    Like I said, can't fault them as a rule in general

    cheap chinese shit is all I use, I can't afford a proper one :( My chinese cree head torch took a long swim in Bunker and still worked fine so I think its the luck of the draw sometimes.
