Works great, but…

Great torch with bright, wide beam.
However, after fewer than 10 charging cycles, it no longer accepts charge. In fact, when plugged into a 4 USB outlet charger, it stops the charger from working completely.
Not too happy. Will not buy again.

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse Retail Stores.

Since writing review "Poor Battery Life" Bones August 7 2016 I purchased a Brand New 6V 4.0AH Razorback AGM Rechargeable battery 6volt 4ah Toy Electric* from Zap Industries Australia P/L www.razorbackdc.com.au for $16.00 including postage and Torch is now working perfectly :-)

Great when working but far too problematic with battery life.

published

Great when they are working. Battery life is very "iffy" however. Ours also only ever worked for about 20 to 30 minutes before going flat. We have had two of these units and the warnings about storage fully charged and recharged every two to three months thereafter are critical. Both of our units failed with little use probably because of this. Who stores a torch and remembers to re-charge every couple of months? They should be fitted with modern lithium or similar batteries and or replaceable lithium or similar made available. We would never buy another. Our second unit will recharge but goes flat again within a day or so in storage now.

Have a look at comment by "Bones, Problem Sorted" Just what I was on about, a rechargeable has to be the way to go. That said, the battery is about the same cost as some other rechargeable spot lights I have seen at Bunnings!

Good Customer Service from Arlec

Like the other people who wrote about this torch, I was also pretty ticked off when after its very first charge my 2 yr old RT500 wouldn't work. I sent a message to Arlec explaining what had taken place, and as a good will gesture, they're going to send me a new one. Can't complain about that. Good Customer Service.
