Oxford's unusual rubber mounting system doesn’t inspire as much conﬁdence as the plastic used on rival lights, though it worked well enough during testing.
The nine LEDs provide a circular beam, but the running time is disappointing. The UltraTorch is powered by just two AAA batteries, and the beam starts to fade badly after around only four hours.
It’s a shame, as it’s waterproof, light and makes a handy torch too – but it’s hard to recommend over the likes of Raleigh’s Niteﬂux, which is just as bright, cheaper and has a much longer run time. The lack of a ﬂashing option is a surprise, too.
