    Does the L2T has warranty?

    You sell the spare parts right?

    At the same time, i saw on HWZ that you have a mini LED 1 w torch? I need an ultracompact, 1 AAA and this 2AA.

    Yes all fenix lights cover under the same factory life-time warranty against manufacturing defect. any problem with the flashlight u just come back to me, locally.

    Spare parts yes.

    1AAA 1Watt LED flashlight -
    as an "ultracompact" back-up, yes.
    for brightness, it's abit tough for them to match conventional 1Watt LED light, limited by 1AAA batt capacity & smallish reflector size.
    for run-time it will be much shorter than those powered by AA.

    those 15-leds in one torch are not as strong compared to the single LED modules IMO...those are only good for night reading...

    As referred to in one of the earlier posts. You may also want to consider headlamps.

    I've used those by Petzl and they are really compact and light. I've used them in the military and also at home for reading. I use it when I go for photo shoots too (in dark areas). This way, both my hands are free to work on any task at hand.


    Tikka Plus
    • 4 LEDs produces a long-lasting and even, white light.
    • 3 lighting levels (maximum, optimum, economic) and strobe mode, to adapt the light to the activity and at and light duration needs.
    • Produces diffuse, proximity lighting.
    • Light beam can be easily aimed where desired.
    • Adjustable and comfortable elastic headband.
    • Water resistant for all-weather use.

    Zipka Plus

    A good friend of mine both one of those 15-led torch. It was slightly brighter than my tikka headlamp, but after about 1 hour of use, there was a significant drain in his set of batteries and the 15-led torch became much dimmer.

    The Petzl headlamps really give good battery yield. On a set of 3 AAA batteries, I felt that it almost lasted forever!

    Why'd you need a headlamp for reading at home? Always got power blackout at your place?

    well for brightness depends on personal preferences....
    for the price... <$15 (15LEDs) .. is a veri good bargain.
    there is a 7Watt LED. cost $65, if don't remember wrongly.

    Please note that conducting of sales anywhere outside the B&S section is not allowed on CS. For that matter sales of non-photography related items is also not allowed anywhere in CS.

    Thanks!

    Sorry, this was not originally intended as a sales thread (nor do I think it has become one...)

    I was initially asking for recommendatinos on torches only and along the way, someone recommended a local distro for the torch I was looking for, but all communication with the seller was via mobile phone and email (only the initial few PMs).

    But thanks for highlighting the T&C again, boss!

    If juz need a bright LED torch w/o brand (meaning likely fr China). Search the keyword "Luxeon" in eBay and will return hundreds of entries. Got my 1W Luxeon for US1cent but shipping charges add to about S$20.

    Getting another 2pcs for a combined shipping of $20 in my latest bid. Can juz fix these no-frills models onto bikes. Stolen also not so heart-ache.

    Actually, Fenix is also made in China, but the quality is good. Not planning to mount it to a bike either
