    Default Pen Torchlight with narrow beam

    Anyone here knows the brand of pen torchlight with AA batteries that has a focussing head. I need the light beam as narrow as possible but strong in intensity.

    Thanks.

    Perhaps I should elaborate a bit more.

    I want to do some light painting on small products for a photo project.

    I bought a fibre optic attachment for a 3 AA made-in-China Led penlight. But the light coming out was not strong enough.

    if u want narrow-focus beam pattern, maybe u can consider the SSun's L130WD ("L130WD" is underwater-diving edition price less than S$50. "L130W" without the "D" extenstion on the model number is a cyclist edition which use Taiwanese LED instead of Japanese Nichia LED)

    L130WD built with 5x Nichia-CS LED & the light are focus by 5x mini-lens on the front bezel

    If u think "side-spill" light is also essential then u can consider some 3Watt-LED flashlight (e.g. L2T, comes with Hi/Lo 2-mode brightness control)

    Both L130WD & L2T are using 2AA as power source

    Buy a cheap $1 magnifying glass. Attach it to a cardboard tube (eg toilet roll holder). Insert any torch into the other end. Viola - a focusing flashlight. Can focus until pin-point.

    L130WD looks interesting for a 2xAA. Not many of such lights ard.
