This rechargeable torch is pocket-sized and powerful – perfect for night-time in Africa or outdoors or whenever you need to illuminate dark areas. This safari and outdoor essential is battery-free option, with technology and features for adventure and every day.
A reliable, lightweight, and compact torch is a must for overnight outdoor adventures and camping trips and African travels. The wilder the destination, the darker it gets and a rechargeable torch helps you to illuminate night-time activities and keep an eye on the bush for nocturnal wildlife.
The light P5R Core Torch is a favourite for adventure and travel because it slips neatly into jacket or trouser pockets. This means you can have a torch with you whenever night descends. This rechargeable torch is convenient – removing the worry around packing batteries (and their environmentally friendly disposal).
This Ledlenser torch shows battery status and comes with a charge indicator and low battery warning, so you can plan around power. The three power settings provide high-quality, powerful light – and can be adjusted for use as a spotlight or floodlight depending on your needs.
The robust construction and flex sealing technology have the realities of outdoor adventures in mind, providing dust and splash proofing.
The great features translate to a useful tool you will use back home too. Whether you’re using it around the house or keep it in your car or bag, light and lightweight go hand-in-hand in this Ledlenser torch.
Going on safari or using your torch around wild animals? Torch etiquette on safari and around wild animals: Please note that one should never shine a torch into the eyes of diurnal animals such as deer, antelope, gazelles - and even up to animals as big as elephants. This may result in them becoming dazed, leaving them vulnerable to predators. It may also upset larger mammals such as hippo and elephant, which could cause them to run. Please do not shine on birds at night.
Packing notes for torches from our experts:
• Packing a high-quality torch is essential on all safaris. This is important for your safety at night.
• Not only will a high-quality torch, such as the range we stock from Ledlenser, ensure that you avoid stepping on any reptiles, arachnids, or insects at night when walking back to your room or tent, but you are also able to spot and avoid wildlife which may have wandered into the camp area in the evenings, as most camps are unfenced.
• Spotting wildlife is also good fun at night. Please ensure that you do so from a safe vantage point such as from the lodge or from the comfort of your room or tent. Your guide and lodge staff should be able to assist you in finding the safest position from which to view the animal.
• For guidelines on which animals you should not shine on at night and for other useful torch usage information, please see the section on this page called "Torch etiquette".
General notes from our experts:
• Our expert, honest advice has the sole intention of increasing your enjoyment and safety whilst on safari and comes from years of experience on all types of safaris and adventures in Africa.
• Natural behaviour: For all the activities you enjoy on your safari, please remember that the ultimate safari involves seeing natural behaviour from the animals you have travelled so far to spend time with. What we mean by this is that you and your guide should not confront any animal while on safari, but rather stay a safe distance away from the animal so that they continue with their habits as if you were not there. The holy grail of safaris is to use the wind, sun, and your guide's skills to try view the animal without it ever becoming aware of your presence. Watching an intimate moment between an elephant cow and calf beats an elephant charging you when you venture too close and she feels threatened. Please bear this in mind when viewing animals during the day and at night - no matter how great or small. Wildlife observations in an open, natural habitat are a privilege and leaving animals as undisturbed as possible by our encounters is what we should all strive to achieve.
