RING’S Oculus is getting on a bit nowadays (it was a winner back in 2011), which perhaps explains its weight penalty compared with some more modern lights; it topped the charts at 195g. It was balanced with the battery at the back and we liked its integral solid/flashing red light, but it was tricky to use when lying on a creeper to slide under a car.
The red, blue and green LEDS complemented a good white beam, albeit with a very limited spread at 24cm and 47cm. However, the beam could be angled at one of nine positions and the price went some way to balancing its cumbersome nature.
