It’s not until you’ve actually used one of the variety of LED Lenser torches and Lenser head torches on the market that you find how ordinary and rather inadequate your bog standard torch can be.
Once you get your hands on an Hi power CREE LED X21r torch or a more popular lightweight polycarbonate torch like the LED Lenser L7, you’ll truly appreciate the vastness of the technology and light engineering you have invested in.
For anyone that works in the dark and I don’t mean simply searching for a box in the garage. When you get recommendations from the police, security guards, army personnel and professional divers then it’s pretty clear that if you’re looking for a police torch or a shock proof solution with the clearest light beam, strongest and most focused ray of light then you know instantly that you’re dealing with a superior manufacturer.
LED Lenser, as a company, are winning competitions and awards throughout the world based on design, energy efficiency and most recently entered into the Guinness Book Of Records for the largest flashlight in the world. A gimmick yes, but behind the plaudits and press attention is some of the latest torch technology in the industry.
Take the LED Lenser X21r for instance, it’s quite possibly one of the most expensive torches in the world aside of the Olight SR95 Intimidator. Why? Because to get so much light – an horrendous 1600 lumens which equates to carrying around a concentrated beam of 500 watts which can shine ahead for 535 metres. Well it’s something the likes of the Titanic could have only dreamed of at the time.
LED torch lights and indeed LED light bulbs for the home are advancing at such a rate, that investment is paying off both for the long term financially as well as in energy efficiency. While the Lenser X21r (8421-R) is the rechargeable version, the LED Lenser X21 (8421) at 1100 lumens is equally impressive with a burning life of 244 hours. Astounding!
The question you need to ask yourself is, what do you require from a torch? Hand held or an head torch, because whatever the answer, LED Lenser torches have a solution for both. The Lenser head torch H7r and H14r are equal to any hand held and are supremely effective at allowing a hands free solution to lighting the way ahead whether you’re 250 metres underground pot holing, mining or caving, or carrying equipment, cycling, walking and searching on land.
Are these flashlights and tools so superior that they are only effective as police torches and tactical torches? No, again, while I put the fact down that you don’t need so much light searching for a box in the garage, these are wonderful lighting tools for anyone and almost any situation. They don’t just offer the brightest beams and longest lasting battery life, the torches come in all shapes and sizes with different lumens capability for each individual.
It is far better to invest in the best LED torch for the future rather than find yourself in a situation in the pitch dark where the most light is required. I can recall having the best torch available on the market when I was in the Scouts, I can also remember being with someone walking back from the pub down a dark lane and their puny lightweight keychain torch failing. Lenser torches come in handy no matter the scenario as they deliver a powerful light beam whatever the product or desired use.
Squillions feature some of the most popular and most advanced LED Lenser torches. The most popular X21r, Lenser L7 and the compact (88mm) yet powerful F1 are all briefly featured in review below. As are the Lenser head torches H7r and H14r with speed focus functions and lamp head 90 degree swivels. We have chosen Lenser torches as they are by far the most superior, durable and brightest beams on the market.
So no matter whether you’re fishing, buying an LED lenser torch for use as a police torch, tactical torch or as a flashlight for camping, mountaineering or work on an oil rig. If you wish to carry around a lighting capacity that is the equivalent of a floodlight or beats the capacity of a car headlamp, then Lenser torch technology is the only solution.
