    I take it the higher the lumen number the brighter the torch.
    What's the brightest for your buck?

    bought one at Aldi last time round.....

    good quality and powerful beam.

    one thing i did find.....instead of repeatedly pressing the end button for the three lighting modes simply tap the end on a firm surface and it changes automatically.
