  1. That's just pure, unadulterated rough porn that is. Still, if you're going to do a pupil dialation test it's always good to use one of them to incinerate the eyeballs first.
     
  2. Fu[]ck me thats a torch
     
  3. I shudder at the thought of reaching into your pocket for that torch, and realising its not there...
     
  4. TWENTY 123A batteries! It's a 60 volt torch!

    That's £1/hour to run the LEDs or £14/hour to run the main light!


    Tempting though it is at the knock-down price (£800 off), I think I'll stick to my Maglite.
     
  5. Do you think they do a right angle version?
     
  6. Utter utter filth :D .Did not know it exsisted but know now my life will be empty until I have one . :D
     
  7. Would it not be cheaper to dismantle a Lighthouse and wheel it around in a barrow?
     
  8. True unless you buy lots of batteries at the same time or use some llm ones it can be a expensive toy crying to be used

    I've actually seen this beastie. It comes in an ABS SUITCASE with the charging unit built into it. The whole SUITCASE with torch weighs around 35-40lb.

    I er, played with it for a little while and it is quite literally stunning. Like all HIDs, it takes a while to warm up of course, and when it does, you don't want to put your hand in front of it. Bit OTT for a camping weekend mind you, unless you're doing a 'dogging surprise' holiday.
