Hey Guys

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 based torch.

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.

Product Features
1 x Super CREE light chip
200 Lumens
Dynamic 3 mode switch
High speed single handed focus system
Supplied with pouch and lanyard
Batteries included

Run Time
Up to 120 hours in economy mode

Dimensions
Length: 131mm, Head Diameter: 37mm, Body Diameter: 29.5mm

Weight
192 grams

Power Supply
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


Peace

Seems good, perhaps bying some recharble units along with charger for multiple locations and source of charging would be your next move.

I second the recommendation for Coast LED torches. My favorite so far is the Lenser V2. Tough, compact, and 110 lumens is plenty bright for my uses -- and I use it daily.

Nice choice you made!


PS - star for informing me of a model I hadn't seen yet!

Have those buddy, Duracell Supreme 1000mAh AAA for this and Duracell Supreme HR06 2450mAh batteries for my LED Mag-lite with car/mains and solar chargers.

As we know, a torch is no use without batteries and a source to charge them

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.

Good buy!

Also consider the OLight Series. They have some great little torches.
This one is pretty neat. About 227 Lumens but I think there's an upgrade you can get for, get this, over 300 Lumens!!



I quite like the Lenser x21 as well. If it took lithium battery's I'd buy one in a heartbeat...

Dude what is the candle power on that?

This might wind up being my new weapon light for my AR.

I'm using a Surefire G2 single diode weapon light right now it's very bright and blinding.
I imagine this one would be far better of getting the job done.

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.

Good buy!

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

You know what Bud, I believe I am but god only knows what my login details are lol. Pretty sure thats where I saw my first HID Torch


Agree with the points about batteries but I am sure something will be along from Lenser at some point that will address this (fingers crossed).
