Shine a light on motorhome matters


LED torches match power efficiency with brightness

Arriving at a campsite at night, or parking up in the wild, can involve a degree of confusion when you can’t see what you’re doing. The Cybe-Lite Lightstar range of LED torches from Ring is a premium range of torches, packed with smart technology and designed to be dropped and splashed in water and still come up shining. The entire range has been upgraded with either more lumen output or longer operating time.

The Lightstar 75 (previously the Lightstar 45) is a lightweight torch that now has a 75-lumen output, an operating time of 7.3 hours and a beam distance of 92m. The torch boasts a revolutionary Collimator lens for an ultra focused beam and also a simple electronic base switch for momentary or constant illumination. SSP £16.99.

The new Lightstar 160 (previously the Lightstar 120) aluminium torch now has a 160-lumen output, an operating time of 6.5 hours and beam distance of 185m.  It features a revolutionary focus control, meaning the light can be directed as either a spot or flood beam pattern.  The torch boasts an energy saving dimming control switch which allows the user to control light output down to 10% of the original light, thus saving battery power. SSP £24.99.

The Lightstar Dual 200 is a new addition to the range and is different from other torches in that it can be used as a lantern as well making it a great choice for camping trips. It has a 200-lumen output and beam distance of 175m with an operating life up to 12 hours on full brightness. It features a reflector for directional light and a textured lens for area light.  The torch also includes a long press on/off function to avoid accidental switching, ensuring maximum efficiency of the torch. SSP £29.99.

The Lightstar 310 (originally the Lightstar 275) is a lightweight and long life torch that packs a real punch with 310-lumen output, making this the brightest torch in the Lightstar range. It now has an operating time of 40 hours and a beam distance of 225m. The torch also features a revolutionary focus control function to help direct the beam pattern. SSP £34.99.

The Cyba-lite Duo has had an upgrade to 50-lumen output and features a battery life of 7 hours and a beam distance of 60m. The torch will last up to 23 hours on Red LED night mode and 36 hours on Red SOS LED flashing.  SSP £16.99.
