Hi,

Do you use a torch to see what your doing on bonifre night or do you rely on your own eyes to see whats what ;)

If so, what type do you use?

Ive ordered a Cree LED torch, had them in the past and their brilliant, think my last one was from china, anyway ive ordered a new one from tmart (it does take about 3 weeks to come though) but for £4 they are great and nice and bright.

In the past ive also tried those head torches too but they can be a bit of a neussance.

We use a small LED one, was very cheap but it's very bright, got an adjustable beam as well and the batteries last for quite a while.
Also got a much bigger one that we use for setting up, which was free with the car's breakdown cover :D

I have a cheap LED torch/handlight for £2.50 from homebargain-comes with 3xcheap and cheerful AAA chinese batteries to get you started, but I replaced these with Panasonic AAA Alkaline batteries because I don't trust chinese made batteries;cheap chinese batteries have a tendancy to leak even when not fully exhausted. This torch/handlight has a hanging handle and a magnetic base to stick to metal surfaces, should you need to do that. Pretty bright too, whether torch or handlight is used. ;)

some really nice torches here. I usually use my phone light, I may consider investing in a proper one.
