Maglite Mini Torch
Advantages: Bright, well constructed, versatile
Disadvantages: Paint colours rub off over time
I have two of these little torches, a lovely purple one and a silver one. I keep one in the car and one in my handbag. You never know when you might need a torch!
They are very powerful and produce a lot of light. Their battery life is good. I only use them occasionally and the batteries last at least 6-9 months. You can also screw off the top portion and use this as a base so the torch in effect then works as a small light, this has been really helpful when camping. We also have a larger maglite that operates in the same manner.
The coating on my purple one is starting to come off and silver is showing through, this is rather disappointing. The silver one is still as good as new and I have had them both the same length of time so I would only buy silver in future.
The button is rubber and works well. It has a nice click to it when depressed. The barrel of the torch is grooved and this is good as makes them easy to hold. They are very durable, I have dropped them several times yet they still work and haven't dented or been damaged. I also dropped the silver one in a puddle and it still worked.
The material the torch is made of is aluminium. It is powered by two AA batteries. It is very lightweight, and handy for handbags or pockets.
I would not buy another torch brand, these are very versatile. They are quite pricey compared to other torch brands but I think they are worth it for the quality of the product.
Summary: A great, bright torch with many uses.
