My Torch for my Husband on 24th December 2011 for his Christmas present. There were no instructions in the box, but the shop assistant quoted that, any idiot can use it, you don't need them, just plug it in to charge and off you go. He was right, It worked really well and we were pleased with it.
However, We got the torch out again to use over December, and found it wouldn't charge. i proved the charger was working as it fits other electrical s in my house, and, it was fine. However the torch although given a good charge wouldn't illuminate at all.
We have taken it back to our store, and they say its 12 months since purchase and cant be exchanged. I then went to another local Homebase store, told them the story and was shocked to find out that you have to regularly charge this item, to keep it working, and this was in the instructions. I explained no instructions. And was basically told it was my tough luck!
Now My argument was, why would I need a super strong torch, purchased for night time dog walking and dark morning car defrosting, in the summer?

this torch takes too long to charge with the minimun of battery life when turned on, the light itself does not have the best irradiaion beam or brightness, you can buy a cheaper with a newer technology torch which provides a far higher lumen light with a far better battery life and quick charg feature, avoid this torch it is awful.

A very useful torch as I live in an area without street lighting. It's range is amazing and having the inclusive charger makes it a very worthwhile buy!

I bought this, got it home and discovered it was rattling. Took the lens off and the mountings holding the innards to the body were all sheared off. Whether it was dropped in transit or a returned product wasn’t clear but if you are going to use in a situation where it might get dropped I would go for something a bit more rugged as there’s no way this would survive being bashed about.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Pompey Lasts about 5 mins
I have had this torch for about a year and used about 3/4 times - each time it lasted a MAX of 5 mins before it needed recharging. In the process of contacting homebase trying to exchange. DO NOT BUY!!

Rated 1 out of 5 Terrible. Do not buy.
Terrible. I bought one which once charged would not turn on at all. I returned it and got a replacement identical product which was also completely non-functioning and had to be returned. Obviously completely faulty and should be taken off the shelves
