This came about pretty much by accident, while looking at one thing on ebay these torches came up in with other products the seller had. As the price was silly I ordered one.
The torch runs off a single triple A battery, it has a tail clicky button and just the single mode, it wont tail stand because the button is jusr proud of the bottom.
It has a sturdy-ish pocket clip, thats reversible so you could clip it your hat peak if needed.
It's listed as 3000 Lm, that must be Chinese Lm, I figure it's really around the 100+ Lm, maybe 130-ish max.(compared to a known 130 Lm torch)
It has a largish hot spot and good soft fall off to a medium size spread, plenty of light for walking around at night.
I haven't tested runtime yet but I'd be guessing around 30 to 45 minutes with an alkaline battery, I don't know if it'll run off rechargeable.
3.5 inches long (90mm aprox)
I got it from seller dingding 18738, and it cost £1.84 when I bought mine (I've no connection to the seller or company)
To be honest for the price it's great, bright enough to be really handy, small enough to go in a shirt pocket.
Shown here compared to a double A battery (note the torch uses one tripple A)

Got out yesterday with the cameras, even had an assistant to carry my big (which was nice as my back was bad) I had planned to shoot some video on the go-pro but St Fagans was fairly busy so I'll go again on a quieter day for that.
All shot on Canon this time.

I bought a packet of hot cross buns from Tesco today, I'm quite partial to a buttered bun... or maybe a bit of bun with my butter.
Anyway as I was cutting the buns I noticed an odd smell, I sniffed the buns and there was a sort of what I thought to be cinnamon-ish smell. Still bung on half a pound of butter and off I go.... Then I start to eat one... Bloody Hell! Revolting! I try to figure out the taste but I can't put my finger on it. Back to the packet and it says hot cross buns, then I see the small print. Salted caramel and chocolate chip hot cross buns. WTF!!!!!!
Hot cross buns shouldn't have salted caramel or chocolate chips, a hot cross bun is supposed to be a hot cross bun, the recipe is well known.
The hot cross bun story goes back to around the 12th century when a monk making buns decided to put a cross on them to mark Good Friday.
The recipe then didn't include bloody salted caramel then and it shouldn't now. I hate to waste food but the two I had buttered went in the bin.
So what next Tesco, a cheese sandwich with pineapple? Or maybe a custard tart with blackberries?
I don't mind you making different flavors but don't sell then as something they are not, and those are not fucking hot cross buns.
