Recently decided I needed another torch (to go along with the other 20 odd I have lol) and decided it had to be small and most importantly an LED
After a short time searching the internet and watching various video's on You Tube I decided that my weapon of choice would be the LED Lenser P7
Tactical Torch - Model: 8407.
As you can see, its certainly well made (Made In Germany) and the light output for something so small is to be honest - Ridiculous
Current Retail price on these is around the £50.00 + so off to the Bay I went. I was surprised by the amount of copies on Ebay so was a careful as I
could when it came to purchasing my torch. In the end I managed to find what looked to be a genuine P7 for £29.80
My concern was that for the silly saving in price I would receive one of the clones, how pleased was I when I found it to be a genuine torch. Saving
£20.00 in the process - BONUS!
For someone looking for silly illumination without carrying a drain pipe sized torch I would certainly recommend one of these. Compact enough to drop
in your BOB yet powerful enough to illuminate up to 230 metres away. Also accessories available for mounting to fire arms etc.
1 x Super CREE light chip
Dynamic 3 mode switch
High speed single handed focus system
Supplied with pouch and lanyard
Up to 120 hours in economy mode
Length: 131mm, Head Diameter: 37mm, Body Diameter: 29.5mm
4 x AAA alkaline batteries included
Quick Video of one of these in action:
For those in the UK that would like to get their mitts on one of these, may I recommend you search for the seller: style0822 or Item Number:
220722367748. I have nothing to do with this seller, its not me and I gain nothing from posting details of him here. Its just one seller I know
sells Genuine LED Lenser P7's at a fantastic price. Just want to help fellow members get the right kit for the right price.
Anyway, hope this is of use to you guys. Next for me is the LED Lenser X21 but that's another story to follow soon!
LED Lenser X-21 for those that want light madness hehe

This is my second LED Lenser, I have a 552294 on my car keys at that's mental for its size. Always been a Mag-Lite person until I discovered these.
Still have various Mag-Lites, DDD and DD Jobbies, AA LED Mag-Lite and also a normal AA one that I use on my Mounting Climbing helmet.
As Above, I love torches so have a few to go at but think I will be steadily retiring those in favour of the LED Lenser items.

I have tried that Jedi power millarky before and found it's not for real hehe so always make sure I can power my kit but good to mention as a
reminder to others that may be thinking of investing in one so thanks bud
Very nice! Wouldn't happen to be a member of the candlepower forums would you?
I really like torches with adjustable beams, really increases it's usefulness. Instead of having to carry around something with a long throw, and
something else with a lot of side spill, one torch gets the job done.
Like someone else said, the only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't appear there is any way to make it use CR123s, 14500s, or 18650s.
There is no direct comparison between Lumen's and Candle Power buddy but to get a rough idea if you divide Lumen's by 0.07958. So this being something
in the region of 200 lumen's, divide that by 0.07958 which equates to 2513 Candle Power approx. Bloody bright with no obvious 'hot spots' in the beam
Would definitely recommend one
