Only one condition - it must be rechargeable.
Any suggestions of ones to buy or avoid...?
They have got some in Lidl at the moment. Rechargeable long thin type, cant remember how many Leds but only £9.99
EDIT. 60 led's
* With 60 LEDs for extra bright light
* With rechargeable batteries which can be charged using either a mains or 12V in-car power supply (included)
* LED charging status indicator
* With pivoting hanging hook

I've had a Sealey rechargeable for a couple of years now, good quality and a charge lasts forever (I take it to Rod Runs as a torch). It looks old fashioned and a bit expensive (£35-£40 when I bought it) but it has lasted well.
If some's good, more's better and too much is just enough
ive got 2
one is a thorsman lightstick about 40 bucks and worth every penny,
the other is long n thin leds all the way round, car charger and mains charger, cost about 30 quid, load of **** from jewsons.
ive missed placed my light stick and even at that price id by another, only down side is no car charger.
when you look at one you want a high mA rating on the batteries which should mean higher charge time and longer use time
Yep Sealey one here as well
More led's doesn't necessary mean brighter. I have an 'Energiser' head torch selectable between 2 or 4 led's mounted behind a lens that is fantastic. Keeps your hands free, runs of 3 AAA batteries that last months even when used for a hour or so each day. The two led setting is the brightest.
I've got an led rechargeable which I woulddn't be without. Lasts for ages on a charge. The light is very directional though rather than forming a good spread.
the current issue of "car mechanics" magazine has a product test on led hand lamps this month
their best buy was the ring ril2500 £29.99 from halfrauds
best budget was tesco 203-0146 £21.53
it may be possible to get the halfrauds one cheaper with a trade card
I have a black and decker one
