LASER RECHARGEABLE HEADLIGHT TORCH
Price: £14.42-£18.98 www.lasertools.co.uk
Looking more like a miniature camera strapped to the front of your head than a torch, Laser’s model uses a 3W Cree LED bulb, which provides 2-5 hours of illumination from a lithium-ion battery that takes roughly three hours to recharge. There are two settings for illumination and a strobe light that may be useful for cyclists. The lens on the front can be twisted both clockwise and anticlockwise to alter the angle (zoom) of the light. The entire headtorch can be tilted down to 90°, making it easier to illuminate objects below your body and work on something up close.
The rubber on/off switch on the top of the headtorch is quite fiddly to operate when wearing gloves, and we found the light started to dim after 1.5 hours, however the price is remarkably low for a compact rechargeable headtorch.
