I bought 3 torches from Adam last week. I found him very helpful and prompt with delivery. I would definately be buying from him again and would recommend Adam and Liteshop to anyone interested in buying quality torches at reasonable prices with excellent advice, Peter W.

Placed my order and moments later i got a shipping confirmation. Quick replies via email and just outstanding customer service. Will definitely be a return customer.

The battery charged from 3.6v to 4.19v in about 3hrs. The torch was taken out for a test run(MTB). All the info. & photos in your web site was accurate. Very nice light. I'll purchase another one for my helmet when I could find a suitable helmet mount & as soon as I can afford it.
Cheers Ron

The Klarus XT12 has performed very well, used it spotlighting rabbits with a .22 the first weekend I had it to great success, then it travelled to Gallipoli for Anzac day (and of course a long night before it) and then through Turkey and the Greek Islands. What a great do-all torch, hunting one weekend and a night-light in a dark hotel room the next!

I have to say the flashlight is exceptional. It is ruggedly built and super bright. Thanks Adam for your help with choosing this light. Great customer service and product knowledge. Cheers.

I'm very impressed with both the product and the service provided. I won't hesitate to purchase from you again, and I have already recommended you to many of my law enforcement colleagues.

I am over the moon with the purchase! Your advice was spot on and I am looking forward to using the torch on Safari next month.

Thanks again.

The best torch I have ever had. And great service, too.

Certainly lives up to its reputation and is a fantastic light. Very happy with this purchase. Also very pleased with the level of customer service and speedy shipping provided by Liteshop.
As a suggestion for Klarus, it would be great to see a version of this light with a focusable beam.
