Energizer LED Keyring Torch
Advantages: Really bright for such a small torch, easy to attach and feels like quality
Disadvantages: None for me
Anyone going through my spare drawer in my shed might think I have an obsession with torches as I have loads of old ones in there but I do find them so handy and can't understand how other people can manage owning none. I keep a torch in several different rooms in my house as well as in my dashboard and boot of my car. I also like to have one with me at all times and am currently using an Energizer LED torch which I have had for a few months now.
I spotted this and thought it would be a great little addition to my car keyring. Because it was made by energizer I assumed that it would be a good little torch but as it was only a fiver I thought I didn't have much to lose if it turned out to not be very good when I received it. I bought mine online but it is also available in DIY and gadget shops.
The torch is a simple enough looking item and it is also really small and compact. It is chrome and actually looks pretty stylish on my keyring and to be honest you would be hard pressed to even know that it was a mini torch because it doesn't look like one. Instead it just looks like a little attachment.
The torch attached easily onto my keyring and it felt really secure when it was in place. I did notice that it weighed my keys down a little in my pocket but not enough to make it feel uncomfortable to hold or anything. It definitely feels much better quality and more solid than some other little plastic keyring torches I have owned in the past.
The torch is so simple to use which is exactly what you want when it is dark as you don't want to be fumbling around for ages trying to turn the torch on. You just need to press down on the middle of the torch to get it to light up. There is no way to keep the light on unless you are pressing but it is comfortable to hold and press for as long as you need the light.
I was so surprised with how powerful this little torch actually was. I was not expecting it to be as bright as it is. I thought it would just give off more of a glow but this thing actually lights everything up that it comes in contact with. The beam itself is narrow but it is easy to train it accurately to where you need the light. I am overall really impressed with the light it gives off. I thought I would only use it to see where the lock is on my car, house etc but I can easily see me just using this in the shed etc instead of finding a bigger torch.
The torch is supposed to give 9000 hours of light and although I am pretty bad at maths that seems like a long time and so I think it makes it even better value for money than it already is. I would definitely recommend it and I am so impressed with it that I have already bought my mother one too as she is always having trouble seeing the lock at night at her house and she also thinks it is brilliant.
Summary: A dazzlingly bright keyring torch
