The Gerber Onyx 50 is a small and extremely well made LED torch which has some good features for the price.
The torch it is powered by a single AA battery and will produce 30 lumens/150 LUX of light which Gerber asserts will light up objects up to 25 metres way although I found its range to be further.
Gerber says that the tight beam it produces is due to it’s ‘Advanced Optic Technology’ which is bright and penetrating as it is focused quite tightly.
Method of operation is by a high quality, single push button switch at the rear, so can be used easily single handed. The body of the torch is made from anodised alumjnium to give toughness and durability and which features four flat sections for easy grip. This is a nicely designed and engineered torch which represents good value for the money and delivers on performance.
Unfortunately Gerber recently discontinued this particular model but there are still plenty available across the web.
