Crap product and service

published

This was a Christmas present and I liked it until the light would turn on by itself 5 minutes after being turned off which flattened the batteries. I contacted the NZ supplier and later Led Lenzer USA and both would not do anything about it as I didn't have a receipt.

Over priced, poor quality .

published

Battery pack casing (4 x AAA) top retainer lug broke off whilst in storage in drawer. After examining the fragment noticed a sharp 90' corner at fracture site (stress riser point). Suspect curvature of main case and cover mismatched putting excess stress on top lug. Light output excellent. Flimsy build. Not recommended for rugged out doors.

Flimsy Plastic

published

Started with the H7 worked fine for a year then a flimsy piece of plastic broke off rendering it useless. I sent back for repair ard and they replaced with the H7.2 which has now broken twice in very similar ways great repair/replace policy! but crap product not for the great outdoors.


Poor quality

published

Good light for the few couple of weeks but since then consistent problems with battery pack and wiring that is strong enough to withstand a change or batteries. Should be better made for the price.


Poor quality gear

published

I've owned three LED Lenser flashlights over the past few years. All failed within a year or two owing to poor-quality switches. I bought a Coast product as replacement, and have never had a problem.

Clip broken twice

published

Clip has broken twice - I have to pay for postage to have it replaced!

Light is strong, a little uneven but good, but quality is very poor

Dont buy this brand


Very dissapointed. . Really hoped this time it would not let me down!

published

Light flickered from the start could not get a light ,we were in the bush wirh no decent light for 5 weeks with a led lenser 2 weeks old. Now i am home i find the batteries leaked again . None of our cheap headlights with same batteries leaks . This is the 3rd led lenser i have had replaced due to problems, the other time was because of flimsy wiring which cant cope with the action of putting it on or off. Not worth its price by any standard. The batteries dont give you bright light for long then it still does not compete with the much cheaper headlights. I have to hand mine in again for repairs, then wait 6 week to get it back. Atleast they have repared it or gave me a new one three tines already !

Not the best purchase I've made

published

I've purchased 14.2 model on eBay. I haven't had a problem with LED itself but the battery box cover's door locking clip was flimsy from the beginning and broke 4 month down the track. It happened the replacement lid after few month again and I have to keep the battery cover lid tight against the battery case body by using elastic rubber bands otherwise the batteries will fall out! The plastic parts of extremely cheap quality and the battery box cover's door locking clip is absolutely unpractical.

Impressed - Finally died after 4 years hard working life.

Love it

My colleague at work has one for five years now and still going strong. I just bought one now. It looks and works well. It's going to make my life easier to work on machines to repair them.


Expensive lemon

published

Have gone through 3 led lenser headlamps so far. The original h14 was ok, but terrible battery life. I only ever managed an hour at full power.
The other 2 were a h14.2 and a h14.2r. One broke 2 days after purchase, the other 2 months. The wiring and switches are far too easily broken for a light of this price point. Would not buy again.

Overated Garbage

published

Battery lasted less than 4 months, no warranty.
Main switch lasted 9 months, now unusable.
This on top of ridiculously difficult operation and a ridiculous touch sensitive light on the back which turns the light on and flattens battery all the time.
Dont buy this product for its name. Many better products out there at a much cheaper price.

Disappointed

published

Not worth the pricetag. I bought one of these because it claimed to be good for horseriding at night, as the throw of the light is good when travelling at speed. The initial light output was great, but the brightness is not sustained for long, and soon becomes useless for viewing the distance at speed.

And the real let down was that it broke after only a few months. The wiring joining the battery to the lens is just not designed for any longevity. We thought it might have been a fluke so then purchased an upgrade of the H14 rechargeable. The wiring on this one became unreliable even sooner. These headlamps are just not robust enough for anything even close to normal usage.

Both torches (costing about $300) were thrown in the bin.

Flimsy junk

published

Not 5 months old, used twice and it is completely stuffed do not touch, yet to find out if they will replace. Original battery appears to have leaked, with new batteries in it won't turn off and all other functions no longer work, should have stuck with a Petzel (lasted 8 years with tonnes of use)
Variable spread lens
Flimsily, poorly built

good light but wont hold charge

published

Generally a Good light (Lenser H7) with brand new batteries ticks all boxes as a overnight hiking and fishing light but if not used batteries drain over a week it will not hold charge and there for find it difficult to trust and rely on it I am disappointed as i spent extra $
good light
wont hold a charge

yeh its just got to do with current flow - all my torches experience it - just try a piece of plastic to isolate the terminals and see how you travel.

H7R

Is my H7R waterproof?

It depends on what you class as waterproof. It is rated IPX4, which basically means rainproof or weatherproof. Its probably not what most people would consider waterproof. A good torch should be at least IPX7 rated. Unfortunately, the gimmicky focus mechanism on a Led Lenser makes it impossible to waterproof to that standard and means it's buggered if you drop it in a puddle.
