just over 18 months old and it failed me
Hi folks just a quick update my torch served me well and in over 18 months I never had to buy any batteries which was great.
However the torch recently malfunctioned and would not stay on, it may have been a fault with the switch but, after a bit of digging around on the interweb I chased up Exped whom wernt too helpful, however i managed to pass the mission across to Lyons the Uk distrubuter.
Joe helped me out no end and i posted the torch off. It turns out there was probably a fault with an inbuilt chip. This could be repaired but may take some time.
Exped have dropped this torch from their line, which makes me think they have no faith in it.
Joe kindly offered me an alternative product so i am now the proud owner of a petzl E lite. Initial synopsis is very good although its slightly bigger than the Exped torch it has many features and seems to be a far more useful product.
The downsize is I now need to buy batteries again, but I know have a compact torch that can cut it with much bigger units and has many uses.
so thumbs down to exped and thumbs up to Lyons and petzl.
