Torch, pocket size
For some bizarre reason both the in-laws want a bright pocket size torch.Posted 1 week ago
Rechargeable would be good but not essential.
Bookmarked. Want to get one for Mrs P as she currently nicks my bike light.

Doesn’t cost an organ

I can recommend the Fenix brand too, depends on budget really.
I’ve had a Fenix PD35 for around 5 years so it’s been superseded now but still going strong, runs on either a rechargeable 18650 or two CR123 primary cells.Posted 1 week ago
I use an O light. Has a very useful flat, magnetic base. It replaced a Fenix that failed after about 18 months.Posted 1 week ago

Several sizes, starting around a tennner up to £30 for the super duper rechargeable version.
I’d second fenix, their torches and head torches are pretty indestructible. Also have a look at LED lensar. Both make decent lightsPosted 1 week ago
Do they want a bright spot light or one with a diffuse beam? Is it for walking out at night?Posted 1 week ago
If a diffuse light I have a couple of these nebo torches which have been very good
If I were getting a pocket torch tomorrow I’d be getting this.
I’m got a similar one by MecArmy and it’s ace.Posted 1 week ago
I have a couple couple of Nitecore e4k’s they seem to fit the bill.Posted 1 week ago
I got one of these and been rather impressed with the build quality etc

OLight do a range of quality lights, as do Fenix and lots of others. Having a magnetic charging capability is really handy, it has to be said; I’ve got a PowerTac flashlight with that facility, and it beats having to take the battery out to recharge it – there are some with USB-C charging as well, although some, like Imalent have taken a different tack and developed their own high-discharge cells with a USB-C port to charge the battery, which is easier than needing a charger that plugs into the mains.Posted 1 week ago
Edit: I’d forgotten that there are USB charging leads which have a pair of magnetic contacts on each end, so you can charge any Li-ion cell easily, from a car USB port, or a powerpack. Fenix and OLight do them.

I’ve got a Skilhunt H04 and it’s amazing. Small, goes from very dim for dark adjusted eyes to incredibly bright. USB rechargeable. Mine’s the RC version for the most diffuse light pattern.Posted 1 week ago

That’s the one I have. It has three brightness levels (max 500 lm) plus strobe and repeating SOS sequence.Posted 1 week ago
I rate the 2 zanflare F1 torches I own. Only paid around £30 each for them. Use one off road and one as an edc.Posted 1 week ago
