The nights are drawing in and the mornings growing darker – making those midnight trips to the garage or early morning forays to the recycling bin all the more dangerous. Luckily, BLT Direct has refreshed their huge range of torches available on its online lighting shop to ensure the latest models are in stock, ready for the winter influx of homeowners that need some handheld illumination in the darker hours.
The torches come in a myriad of shapes and sizes, with different wattages and lumens, to ensure customers have the biggest choice on the web. There are also a number of different power options, including battery-powered and rechargeable, so customers can choose the torch that fits their needs exactly.
Steven Ellwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct, says, “Darker evenings and gloomy mornings mean that many of us will need to rely on torches at some point during the winter. Then there’s the ever-present risk of power-cuts doing adverse weather – which the UK is supposedly set to face over the coming months. At BLT Direct we want to make sure everyone’s prepared for the winter season as much as possible, so we’ve added a new range of torches to our collection. We offer the best models at the lowest prices, so illuminating your garden path as you put out the bins, or lighting up the attic as you retrieve your Christmas decorations from storage has never been easier.”
The Active AP 1-watt Aluminium High-Power LED Torch is a great all-round torch that all households should have. Many torches require niche batteries that are quite hard to find unless ordered from a specific supplier – this high-powered yet basic torch require just 3xAAA batteries to power them – so powering this unit will never be an ordeal. The 60 lumens torch produces a beam that goes for up to 80m, which should be more than enough to navigate any darkened driveway or back garden during the winter months.
The Energizer 2-in-1 Torch and Lantern is also a useful tool to have around the house. Measuring just 120mm and emitting light via a Nichia White LED, this torch lantern combo provides a full 360 degree light beam – so when you’re dragging Christmas presents from the garage in the dead of night ready to put under the tree, you can have both hands free and still see what you’re doing. The soft rubber casing allows plenty of grip and the lamp jumps into life with a simple push button, making this one of the most accessible and easy-to-use torches out there.
