Professional users seeking the hand-held reassurance of a heavy, longer-bodied torch will thrill to the P17.2, a superb quality torch from German world leader LED Lenser. Made from uncompromisingly tough, aircraft-grade aluminium for protection against knocks and shocks, it weighs 773g and measures 306mm in length.
As you would expect from such a large torch it boasts big performance figures too: it has a sensational CREE LED light chip delivering up to 450 lumens brightness, a maximum beam distance of 420 metres and as long as 300 hours burn time. The calibrated reflector lens incorporates the highly-regarded, patented Advanced Focus System to generate homogenous bright white light from spot through to flood beam, without the dark spots or light rings that often make viewing perplexing and uncomfortable in lower-spec torches.
A Dynamic Switch on the end of the housing allows the user to select and regulate between Boost, Power and Low Power light options in milliseconds with just one hand. In response to suggestions from first responders like emergency services personnel, rescue teams, military and police officers, this switch has been made extra-large to make it easier to switch on when wearing gloves, while the barrel has been given an understated anodised matt finish for improved all-round grip
Like most LED Lenser torches the P17.2 has internal gold-plated battery contacts for improved energy conductivity and resistance to corrosion. Supplied with 3 x D batteries and an 360¬∞ rotating belt-clip for hands-free directional lighting.
