NGT Flood Light and Power bank system. £39.99
02-04-2018 I have been testing this Light and power bank system from NGT for the past week now and here is the first review of it. I will do another one when I have taken it Camping with me in June.
Opening the box of a new Gadget is always the high light of a new delivery and this is one item I have been looking forward to getting for a while now.
You open the box and you are faced with the hard shell case that this comes in to protect it when not in use and straight away you know that is is well made, lightweight and durable.
Upon opening the case you find your system already 1/2 charged and ready to go. I made the mistake of turning the white LEDs on straight away and looking at the light. It was like looking into a mini sun and I blinded myself for a good 30 seconds!!
With 500 lumen out put at full power this is a serious light, but luckily it has a dimmer switch to control how bright it is.
The bright White LEDs make the light it throws crisp and clear which is ideal for Camping and night fishing as well as in use for any power cuts that happen at home.
This light has an emergency flashing red light system in it as well so is good to have in your car in case of a breakdown, or as I am going to use that setting for, riding my bike in the darker months to the shop and back.
The constant Red light is ideal for night fishing and camping overnight so that you do not loose your night vision and could also be used on board a boat if night sailing and you need to plot where you are on a chart or updating your course.
It comes with a USB charging cable that will charge any phone or tablet that uses a Micro USB charger (You will have to get your own Iphone conector if you have an Iphone).
It is a quick charge system so it did a 50% charge on my Blackberry Priv in 40 mins and a full 100% charge in an hour!!
So far I have manged to get 5 phone charges out of the power bank before I have needed to recharge the power bank.
When I have taken this on a camping trip and a night hike or 2 with the Scouts I will write an updated review for you to read but so far it is well worth the money and is now in my kit bag for ever more!!
NGT XPR Cree Light £14.99
02 - 04 - 2018 If you are anything like me then you LOVE a good head torch and this will be the one that you want!
It comes ready packed up in a hard shell case for when you are not using it and is lightweight but packs the power.
I have been using this item for the past month on night hikes with my scout troop and the light that it provides is truly awesome. The white light is 140 Lumens which has a beam distance of up to 150 meters and 3 different settings of high, medium and low.
When hiking I use the high beam and this provides great light for what seems like miles in the distance but also has a wide "halo" that means that you can see for several meters around you.
Whilst bank side fishing or at Camp I use the low setting which provides ample light for closer quarters.
The red light option is great if you do not want to loose your night vision and has 2 settings of high and low which is also good for if you are night sailing and need to do chart work!!
I have to e honest, I have not found a use for the Green light yet apart from its something different and fun :-)
I have not managed to run this out of battery life yet as on the white high beam setting the battery is powerful enough to last for 4 hours of constant use ( who uses a head torch for 4 hours continuously??) and if you are using the High red beam it will last you for 48 hours continuous use!!!!
The head torch is also Water IPX4 Waterproof rated for 5 mins, so if you do drop it in a lake you have plenty of time to get it back out but also means that even hurricain rain wont bother this torch.
In my opinion this is an amazing head torch and at only £14.99 is well worth the money, even more so that it is rechargeable and uses any micro USB cable to charge.
