Advantages: Small and slim, cute design
Disadvantages: None for me
I always carry a little torch in my bag with me and also keep one in the glove box of my car, I received this little torch last Christmas in my stocking from my mum and dad, you're never too old for a stocking according to them an have found it really useful.
The Mi Torch doesn't come with any packaging at all, its basically a little flat torch inside a clear plastic cover. Inside the plastic cover each torch has a different design, mine has a green background and a picture of a pink and green handbag with a bright yellow bow. There are 2 sweet kittens popping their heads out of the top of the bag which is very cute. This design is repeated on the back of the torch too. The light comes from 2 small but bright LED bulbs at the top of the torch in the centre.
On one of the torch there is a little raised circle of ridges in the plastic, this indicates where you need to press in order to make the torch work. You do need to keep this pressed to keep the light on there is no way you can actually turn the torch on and leave it on. It simply goes on when this little raised area is pressed and will remain on as long as you are pressing it, once released the light goes out.
The Mi Torch measures approximately 6cm's x 8.5cm;s and is virtually flat making it a similar size to a bank card and a ideal size to pop into your pocket or bag. I have a bag with a small pocket on the front and I just slot the Mi Torch into this.
I've had my Mi Torch since Christmas and have used it a lot, not just when I've been out but also in the house, one day I walked into the house around tea time, it was dark, and as I switched the light on the trip switch blew all the lights out. I had to get to the garage and put the switch back on. My little Mi Torch was to hand in my bag and I used it to get the lights back on.
The Mi Torch comes in different designs including cute kittens and puppies, handbag designs and shoes, to be honest all of the different designs I have seen are girly, there's nothing that would suit a man, well nothing my husband would use anyway.
I have no idea where my mum got mine from but after a search online I have found them on Amazon UK and BuyThemGifts.com. Prices range from £4.50 - £4.95.
I have found this little torch so useful and its real easy to pop into even the smallest bag when I'm out in the evening, the design is cute and despite being used many many times its still as bright as ever,
I would certainly recommend the Mi Torch and it makes a lovely little stocking filler.
Summary: A lovely little torch that makes a useful gift
