Hi Jamie, just to let you know the LED's arrived today.
I've fitted one of them tonight and can see a marked improvement.
Going to run it and see how my soldering holds out and also see how much more drain there is compared to the OEM one, before fitting the second.

Thanks for sorting me out with 'em-
deffo a worthwhile upgrade IMO. :D

I haven't run a set of batteries all the way down - but I will today.
I'll get back to you.

Light turned on with fully charged batteries at 09:40........

Pretty much done by 90minutes....

Will rerun with other torch and another set of batteries, currently on the charger.

For reference, I'm using Maplin 1000mAh rechargables.

Aren't rechargable batteries only 1.2v? So you would see an immediate increase just by using standard batteries as they are 1.5v
