Gerry, for an extra 14p, you can get an extra 75 lumens

I bought an Energiser head torch as a spare a good few years ago, and TBH it has worked very well, more than enough light when needed, batteries seem to last forever, it is a heck of a lot lighter than my main headtorch, and as such is always the first out of the bag, cheap as chips, very reliable, amd it uses rechargeable batteries, when they eventually do run down.I have consigned my "main" head torch which cost something like 60.00, again a few years ago, to use for my beach fishing which does need something brighter TBH.

Energiser all the way for me.

Dave

I've used the energizers in their different guises for years now, I swear by them.

Had all the usual energizer, petzl led lenser. Now use the ridge monkey. Brilliant no more batteries. light doesnt dim as charge starts to run low. Green light much brighter and easier to see with than red. Best of the lot. My mate got one the same time as me and also loves it.

SURELY ???

the red light option is far and away better than green as it does not hinder your natural night vision I mostly use my head torches on red for that very reason
and the batteries last for ages ? if your using the price of batteries to justify the extra 35 the ridge monkey light costs trust me you wont live long enough to use 35 worth of AAA batteries in an Energiser while fishing lol

I bought an Alpkit Manta a few years back, it's a brilliant headtorch, I can't find a fault with it. Perhaps a bit hungry on batteries but that's not really a problem since I discovered just how brilliant the Panasonic Enerloop Pro batteries are. As bright as I need it to be, and with a red, green and blue function as well. I wouldn't think twice about buying another.

I use a Energizer headtorch as back up - cost about 7 in Tesco, which seems fine although I've never actually needed to use it.
