/ Aldi Headtorch
Aldi will be knocking them out for £8 on Sunday
Worth a punt as a backup, or waste of money?
Around 120-160 lumens. Not bad, though no word on battery life. Good as a mucking around or spare. Not sure I'd trust it as my main one on the hill until i'd used it quite a bit.
I've just bought one today. The packaging says 180 lumens and beam length 170m. How accurate that is in the real world I don't know but I've just taken it outside to try it out and its staggeringly bright, like a car headlight. Too bright to use in a tent on full power but it has a half power mode which is probably bright enough for most use and should save on battery juice.
It feels pretty robust so I'd say well worth a punt at £8.
