Thought I would start this off with a little un named chinese model which my missus bought
that came in a pack for plucking eyebrows. It was attached to a large pair of tweezers but she
couldn't use it as the light from the torch nearly blinded her when she tried it! (don't laugh)
I now have it and it makes a perfect lightweight camping torch. Its 1 1/4" long, 3/8" diameter
weighs 1/4 ounce and 3 LR41 button cell batteries power its single led-i'm guessing but it looks
around 8/10 lumens-fairly bright and useful light on a dark night in the woods.
Has anyone any smaller than this(lol)


have fun

Tom.:D

You don't call that a torch do you? This is a torch...8 cree 4 x 4000mah 18650 batteries, 18,0000 yes that's eighteen thousands lumens.

Ahhh but mine runs for 12hrs+ on a single charge of my USB power bank, those 18650 batteries last about an hour if you're lucky, i used to run one of those as my front mtb light, pretty hand for night riding as long as your not out too long or carry extra batteries, got rid of it when i got the usb powered ones though


Edit mine only had the 5 Cree :(

C'mon man hit me with the stats! Its all about how it measures up boy! It does look like its quite small but I sense you are hesitant to divulge. (By the way, am enjoying my purchase, did a bit of research and its now sitting in a food grade mineral oil bath for the night. Then will, after drying off, be dusted down with a liberal coat of renaissance wax. Considering a forced patina for the blade-hmmm maybe.)
