Battery case fell apart

My P7 worked well for a few months, nice & bright. However, I was having trouble turning it on - The battery case had disintegrated, rendering the torch useless.
Would not recommend.

The best torch you can have

I have many torches in my live, but LED Lenser is the best torch, and the light is very strong, stronger then any other torch.
I get this torch from work 11 years ago, at the cost of $259 in 2011, and it is still working. I'm using it every day, and it always worked. I have never any problems. The best torch you can have. I bought another one for my son 5 years ago for $156 , and again there is no problem. Use it, and don't abuse it. Show details

Great torch for as long as it works

My brother, father and I all bought our own P7 torches. After a couple of years only 1 out of the 3 is still working. Expected more than that for the price. Show details

Magnetic charger failure

I have had the P7R for just over a year and found it to be reliable until having recharged it a number of times I find the magnetic contacts have little power and keep falling off the two contact points. Most annoying and disappointing considering the purchase price. Show details

Can't live without it

I've owned a large number of torches over the years for work and the Lenser P7r is the best, I like that you have a spot or spread beam. I work in roof voids and for most jobs the spread beam lights the whole roof void up.

Likes
Charger
Variable beam
1000 lumens it's very bright
It's pocket sized and light
7 year warranty

Dislikes
It doesn't have a flat base so it doesn't stand up. I have to carry a spare torch to do this.
I can't exchange standard 18650 batteries, it needs to be recharged on it's charger

I highly recommend it. Show details

some parts are very low quality

Having purchased 2 LED Lenser P7 torches with pressure switchs and rifle mounts the main rear switch on both have failed some of the parts have fallen apart where the battery module connected to the body of the torch ie the 3 spring loaded contacts on the front of the battery module. Show details

Cheap plastic

Plastic in battery holder disintegrated after a few years use. Looks nice when new but won't last the distance. Expensive rubbish. I suggest you buy a cheaper brand and stay away from Lenzer. Show details

Best flashlight I have ever owned

I recently replaced my earlier model P7 with the latest P7. The first one died after 9 years and a huge amount of use, and could not be repaired, but even so Zen Imports gave me a generous discount on the new one. Extremely bright and very reliable. The first one had a problem after about 5 years with the end cap switch, and a new one was sent overnight with no questions, no returning the unit etc. Just a phone call. These torches have a 7 year warranty and the company is great to deal with. I'm a happy camper! Show details

Anyone have a fix for unreliable LED Lenser torches? I’m on the verge of giving up on them and buying Maglite instead.

Unreliability is worse than not having a torch at all.

I have two LED Lenser torches - P7.2 and P5R.

Both are good - when they work, which is not a given.

P7.2: I have to hit it against my leg or hand or turn the rear cap to a very certain position for it to come on. What exactly that position is I have no idea.

Perhaps it’s related to the phase of the moon, wind speed or whether I’m facing NNW?

P5R: a gift. Was working well, bright but suddenly became unreliable, after only a few short uses.

Have changed the lock / unlock position several times and it doesn’t seem to make a difference. Do I need to be facing SSE for this torch to work?

Can’t find any fixes online.

The unreliability is making me really think twice about this brand.

I really need something to work when I need it to, as the work is very time-sensitive, involving animal rescue.

need the measurements of the P17 to make a pouch as the original pouch is stuffed , 320 mm long with a 31.5mm shaft but my question is what is the diameter of the lamp end and length of this?

Hi Rob, I have the P7, which has a narrower shaft but flares 10mm extra for the reflector. Looking at the photos of the P17, It looks to have the same flare shape and would possibly increase on the shaft by 10-12mm.
