A head lamp isn’t the pxnly choice for the outdoors. GP Batteries aim to fill a niche with their new range of premium, high-power hand torches for outdoor use

The new GPDesign ‘Beam’ collection of torches has been designed for the serious outdoor user. Meticulously crafted for easy handling and robust performance, they feature a rugged ergonomic design and high-quality anodised finish, with easy one-hand operation. Other characteristics include IPX-4 water resistance, high/low brightness settings including SOS function, a tail stand, and reverse polarity protection.

While many hillwalkers select a head lamp for hands-free operation, there are benefits to choosing a hand torch – either instead of or in addition to a head lamp. A light source at waist or chest level can improve depth perception when traversing indistinct terrain due to the flatter angle of the beam, and it’s easier to avoid blinding your walking buddy if you’re holding a hand torch!

GPDesign Beam torches feature a lumen range of 100 to 1,000, high-quality CREE LEDs, aircraft-grade aluminium construction, and industry-leading GP Battery cells. The entire torch collection was recently awarded the internationally recognised Red Dot Award in the ‘Product Design 2017’ category.
