Oxford 9 LED UltraTorch

Our review

Great price and solid build are let down by a poor run time
Skip to view product specifications

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.
