    Has an ultrafire and the switch packed a sad after a while, was a good workhorse till then though. Not a bad idea to get another one

    I've got few torches in the gear box but now I have a maxtorch I'm transferring from aaa to 18650. Will probably end up getting another maxtorch eventually but not yet, missus has a habit of putting torches/knives in pockets and they fall out, learnt not to let her touch most of my toys!!

    I use a couple of varieties of these and they are really good. Haven't broken one yet. I like the single modes the best as a hunting light and a two or more mode for a general light.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
