I rarely review equipment, but when a product excels my expectations I need to pass it on.
I had been using my LED Lenser P7 torch and a Lenser P3 in the course of my work to carry out safety inspections on machinery for many years. Perfect to illuminate those dark recesses.
When I saw a new Lenser P7 in a sale I purchased it and put my original work P7 torch in our campervan.
It has always been a reliable torch and when you run a 22year old campervan it is invaluable especially when trying to keep the old girl mobile.
Recently it had started to flicker, so I opened it up and a battery had leaked, causing corrosion on the terminals. These torches aren’t your usual throw away items. They are built to last, so much so that a quick look on the Lenser website showed that they offer a 5 year warranty with all new products.
That shows confidence in their products.
For obvious reasons an old leaking battery isn’t a warranty claim. I really should have changed them before it got to that state.
In this throw away society I can’t get out of the idea that if a quality product is manufactured, it can be repaired if parts are available and I begrudge throwing anything away.
I had the opportunity to experience the Lenser after sales service. After a quick e mail to them asking if replacements for my corroded parts were available, they sorted out my problem without a quibble that day.
If you want light use a Lenser. Well worth the long life investment.
