Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2332268A] A torch comprises a source of mechanical power, a generator driven by said source of mechanical power so as to provide electrical current for a torch bulb; also included may be a circuit for providing a variable duty cycle to the bulb or means for mounting a battery whereby in operation a mounted battery acts to buffer excess current generated by said generator, the battery being adapted to release current when the generator starts to deliver less current than the rated current of the torch bulb. In one embodiment the lens assembly is detachable from the main body of the torch.
