Lenser range of torches. If you have one......

..... how good are they?
Thinking of a present for "late next month"

Are they really as bright as they claim?
I confess to being under-whelmed by the shift to "low energy light bulbs and particularly LED shift from battery burner halogen bulbs, or even the old traditional 6 volt tungsten filament.

Prices are ... well pricey.
Was it worth buying?

I bought a LED Lenser Pro Series P7, and was amazed at how bright it is - not a good idea to look directly at the light source.

I carry mine in my laptop bag, it's just the thing for .... posing with. Sometimes it's just nice to have a really good-quality thing.

I was sceptical but was pleasantly surprised at the brightness and range of my AP Pro. Do shop around though, I paid £30 at maplins and have since found the same model at Tesco Direct for £18.

Size for size they will outshine anything going and consume far less energy.

I think the customer reviews are worth a read. The torch is incredibly bright and the battery consumption is great (given the power).

That looks like a good buy John B. Good review by rommels cat suggesting to consider few other types & brands as well.

I think some manufacturers do similar ones that come with their own rechargeable batteries & chargers. G

Thanks for your rating. Obviously as a brand you all rate them *****

Anyone comment on the P5?

Likely to carry the thing in a pocket but, too low output would make the purchase pointless.
Lenser site is not as informative across the range as it might be. Virtually no dimensions stated.

I had merely swopped around between Amazon and Lenser UK.

Thanks to everyone for the personal reviews. Its up to me now and I think the P5 will be fine for the use I will make of it.
