Maglite Mini Torch

Maglite Mini Torch
Disadvantages: none so far
I have had my mini maglite for around three years now it is not the silver one like in the picture but it is a metalic blue colour and I carry it in my handbag. It cost me £19.99 from a local store called Sheppards which sells hardware and houshold goods. But you can find them at most camping outlet stores and online.
The mini maglite is 162mm x 18mm and comes in a nice box that protects it from knocks, I don't keep it in the box as it is quite capable of getting knocked about in my handbag and so far I have not had to replace any of the parts due to damage, I have replaced the bulb in the three years I have owned this but that was just due to the usage it gets.
The top of the maglite twists so that you can turn it on and off, this also can give you a wide beam or a more direct beam depending on what you are using your torch for. I have it on direct beam which is a thin line of light so that I can see the lock on my house and car doors int he dark.
I also use this for walking the dog at night so I can see him and the cars can see me on the country lanes whilst I'm walking.
It isn't a heavy torch and weights just 108 grams so its light and useful, it comes in a few colours, black, silver, blue, red and white so there's something for everyone's taste.
It takes two AA batteries which can last you up to 6 hours of light. It is shock proof and this I have to agree with as I have dropped mine a few times from my bag and it hasn't broken.
I really rate the maglite range as if your looking for a long lasting torch then these are great for all kinds of uses and you can get them in different sizes, this mini torch is great for taking around with you in your bag and it makes a good christmas present for both boys and girls.
You can buy replacement parts if you need them and my mini maglite came with a replacement bulb in the box when I bought it.
You can twist the head of the torch right off and have it as a candle light effect of your in a tent and are looking for something or want to read by the light of the torch.
I am happy with my purchase and would recommend this to you if your looking to buy a good torch.
