These LED torches produce a beautiful
even spread of white light which is quite different from that of conventional
torches using Krypton bulbs.
- Super soft white light
- Constant brightness over cell life
- Indefinite lamp life
- Extended cell life
- Ideal for use with Nicad and NiMH cells
- D cell version has brightness control
Conventional torches tend to produce a "hot spot" that can
penetrate the darkness for some distance and they have a larger cone of much
less intense illumination. Overall, they tend to have quite a narrow beam and
you have to move the torch around a lot to adequately light up the area in front
By contrast, these LED torches have a much wider diffuse beam,
giving a very even spread of light without a central hot spot. For most of the
time, this more diffuse beam is much easier on the eyes and the colour of
objects is much more natural. In fact, it is like carrying a source of daylight
An "exploded" view of the "D" torch which has a DC-DC converter capable of driving six ultrabright white LEDs from a single C or D cell. The white cylinder insulates the PC board assembly from any metal fittings in the torch.
So these LED torches are ideal for bushwalking (at night!),
even in very rough terrain, for illumination inside a tent or over a picnic
table and as noted above, for emergency work on your car if, perish the thought,
you break down at night.
