The Inova-X1 torch is another piece of kit that has accompanied me round the world.
It’s a small very robust torch that takes a single AA battery which lasts around 40 hours.
This was my replacement for the bulb breaking Maglite and one of the first entries into the LED market a long time ago. I’ve had this torch for around 9 years no and it’s still going strong.
Light output is low compared to a lot of modern examples but this has been rectified in the new version which has two modes. Don’t be put off by the low light spec as its still way brighter than the AA Maglite and smaller.
I have dropped this, stood on it, submersed it, all accidentally of course, I’m not a torcherer!
If you want a cheap torch that will last ten years easily then look no further, a review of my Inova X5 will be coming shortly.
