    I'd happily recommend this TrustFire TR-1200 if you don't mind the wait for the slow-boat
    Had one around 12-18mth now and although I keep getting others I always rely on this

    P7 = ages, i use mine as a bike light and I'd say I probably get 12+ hours at full power from 4 x AAA.

    That torch that Paul posted for a £5 are well worth the money, take 1 x AA and are very small.

    the torches i have from china,the ultrafire t6 and the trustfire xml 3800 are good,quality of build etc cant fault..never used the torches constantly so cant give you a decent time of burn..im only using 2400mah at moment so with 3000 or higher would last longer i assume

    I think it was leedsexplorer!

    Im only using aaa until I buy some decent batteries which dont run the risk of exploding!

    Build quality is very good for £10 for the ultrafire t6 with 2 batteries charger and torch!
