Gone, But Not Forgotten

Post by Sir Henry on Sun 03 Aug 2014, 2:58 pm

The Dandy may have gone, but I've not forgotten my friends on the forum!

These torch lanterns are the canine's plums. They aren't available in all Aldi stores. I had to go to a second before I could buy one. Fortunately both Rotherham branches are fairly close together.
They come with a set of 4 AA batteries and a thin nylon shoulder strap. The torch beam is very tight, so it should cast a good light over a long distance, although there is a wide cone of low level illumination surrounding it.

The switch has 5 positions
1) Low beam which is still too bright to look directly into
2) High beam which I guesstimate to be 25-30% brighter
3) Lantern setting for general illumination
4) Low beam flashing
5) All off

If I have a complaint it is that the shoulder strap is difficult to attach, so either leave it on or don't use it at all.

I'd give it 4.75 out of 5, with the strap accounting for the difference.

I'm guessing you had a moment while posting the link and meant to link us to https://www.aldi.co.uk/en/specialbuys/sunday-3rd-august/product-detail/ps/p/3w-cree-spotlight-and-lantern/

Nice to hear from you.

Always think these are excellent when on offer from Aldi and only £10.00 or so.

I'm not sure how I got it mixed up except someone asked for a link to the unprovoked assault by US cops on a black (what else?) kid, so it must have still been on my scratchpad. This is the real link.

I've got one of those light wands. Aldi occasionally do them for around £8, but LIDL may still have some in stock from last Thursday. (This link actually works).

Not your day for providing links is it?
I can't get that link off Lidl either.

It seems that the page(s) has/have been updated. With luck there may still be a wand or several in a LIDL local to you.
