I have heard that you can buy a little torch that goes in the ciggy lighter socket (to charge).

Does anyone have one of these torches? I have some question about them:

1. Are they any good/Worth buying?

2. If it is small enough to fit in the ciggy socket and still close the ash tray cover?

3. How bright the light is?

4. How long the battery lasts for both when it is being used and when you dont?

5. How much goes it cost?

6. Does anyone on here sell them?

Cheers [8D]

1. Yes

2. Yes

3. Very bright, dont shine into your eyes because you will continue seeing it for a few hours after!

4. Days

5. Hmmm, around 20 pounds I think (old foxy GB)

6. Think there is a GB going on right now, contact shaq

Got mine this morning from Shaq. See the classifieds section. ?17.50 delivered.

According to the box you get 30 minutes use from a full charge, 15 hours charging for a totally flat battery. LED lasts 20,000 hours.

I read on the box that its SAFE to leave it charging for 15 hours - So you cannot leave it plugged in to the ciggy socket or it may cause the batteries to POP.

Mine has been permanently plugged in for two years. Last night I made the mistake of showing it to my 2 year old as a distraction. It's now his new toy and he woke up this morning and said "Where's my little torch?" [:mad:]

Bought one off someone on ebay about a year ago, about ?22.
Very useful, even used it to change a flat tyre on the M6 in torrential rain!
I keep mine plugged in all the time with no problems.
