Uni-Com Wind-Up Headlamp ... Once removed from its fixing, there's nothing to stop you using it as a normal torch, too. This wind-up headlamp really is a carp angler's dream. It's so annoying when your headlamp batteries run out. Even more so when you get to the bank and notice that your headlamp has magically turned itself on in your bag and drained the batteries! No chance of that happening now! / Sturdy wind mechanism / 1 minute of winding provides up to 30 minutes power / On/off button switch / Foldaway handle / Non-slip grip / Powered by built in long life Ni-MH battery / Size: 145 x 55 x 45mm.

NB: For some reason Dooyoo have called this a headlamp when in fact it is purely a torch. ------------------------------------ A little while back my dear old mum went on one of her shopping sprees and amongst the carrier bags of unneeded tat was a new torch, not just any torch but a wind up one, in fact a Uni-Com 54849 Wind Up Torch. Now I must admit I thought this was just going to be another piece of rubbish which ends up buried at the back of her cupboards, especially as she already had two traditional (battery) torches sitting on the side in the kitchen. Well several months later I am actually eating my words as those two traditional torches ... Read the complete review

I wonder how many people have missed this torch because Dooyoo have called it a 'headlamp' when it is actually called a 'dynamo torch'. Either way, I bought 2 of these many years ago to put one in each of our cars after suddenly finding out late one night, whilst trying to do a tyre change, that our trusty battery torch had gone flat. So never to be left in that dark situation again, I invested in these wind-up or dynamo torches to ensure that I would be able to have light when I needed it. At the time, I think I paid something like £5 each for them. The torch itself feels quite chunky in your hand, being about 15cm long, 6cm wide and 4.5cm deep. Being ... Read the complete review

This torch is a great little invention. One was bought for me a couple of years ago before I was going out to Africa for the first time. It's absolutely ideal for those times when there is no power or you are in the middle of nowhere at night and need to see where you are going. The wind-up mechanism is easy and tough (despite being dropped on numerous occasions, there has never been a hint of damage.) Say goodbye to expensive batteries that are always running out at the most inconvenient time and in the most inconvenient place. The torch gives out a good light, easily enough to see where you are going or even to read something. It really is ... Read the complete review

This little gadget is a great idea. I have had one for a few months now and we keep it by the electricity cupboard when it is not travelling with me! When a fuse goes in the house, (which seems to happen every couple of months or so,) it is impossible to see which fuse has tripped without a torch. With this torch you don't have to worry about the batteries going dead in the meantime because you wind it up yourself. One minute of winding gets you about fifty minutes of light! I find that remarkable! They are also handy when travelling if you end up in a room with no bedside lamp. You have to get out of bed to put the light out and then you are awake ...

The Uni- Com Torch Wind- Up is an eco friendly torch that needs no replacement bulbs or batteries. I have had one of these for a couple of years now. It was bought from Wilkinsons (I think) for less than a fiver. With there being no need to buy batteries it's paid for itself. It has long life rechargeable batteries that are charged by winding the handle. The bulbs are no need to replace LEDs of which there is three, these shine white light rather than yellow which I prefer. You can have one bulb or all the bulbs on by pressing the button on and off (I didn't know this until playing with it for this review). The torch itself is a nice sized silver coloured ...
