Whether you’re caught in a power-cut, your car’s broken down at night or you’re going on a camping holiday, a torch can always come in handy.

Now with a large choice of cost-saving renewable energy torches, there’s no need for expensive batteries. Most now come with internal dynamo designs, meaning the LEDs never run out of power as long as you can wind it up.

Verdict

At the budget end, the Dynamo Spinning Torch at £9.95 is a clever design making the most of a small space with strong lumination. Meanwhile, the Ventus Eco is a superbly powerful wind-up torch. Giving you an hour and a half’s worth of strong beam from just one minute of winding, it’s hard to match.
