If its hand held this is superb. It has the latest chip ( XHP70 LED) and is good for 300m. Batteries supplied are ......just about ok but easily swapped.

I'd check if those torches have last used memory modes, its seriously irritating if a Chines gimmick that goes through all the other modes before you get it to the one you want again.

hello, i agree dave, but its no big deal if only for a pocket torch, the small farm i shoot on, farmer always used a big battery type that cost many ££££s and when it packed up so bought the 70 XHP  type, what a difference, it lights up every corner of a 30 acre field with his flock of sheep,

If its only for dog walking get a 2 D cell led maglight. 

Great torches. 

I also have a Tracer F600 that is fab but a bit pricy for walking the dog. 

Get some rechargeable batteries as well. 😉

These new chips are showing up the old 'brand ' torches for what they are. Overpriced and behind the times.

So I looked about on eBay after following your link. What is better, the xhp70, xhp70.2, or xhp90?

i also saw a head torch with it, which I like as hand are free. Only a fiver, surely it’s worth a punt?

I don't know to be honest. @oldypigeonpopper sounds like he might be on the right track. What I would say with the head torch is this chip is blinding. It would make a handy weapon and I would be wary about having the light on my head with others around. 🙂 

I like a head torch with a red light option too.

Cheers

i generally use the head torch by myself, going to get logs or whatever. I like the ones you can focus as then I can have wide beam to walk around but long beam to scan to check the animals etc

I have a small Clulite  5 inches long and 3/4 diameter and it throws a very long pencil beam, easily 200yrds,  cannot fault it.  Have a small self made red filter which makes it a very handy little spotter as well.
