Coleman Divide+ 350 Torch Review

Coleman Divide+ 350 Torch Review

If like me you’re a sucker for anything vaguely near to a “gadget”, you’ll love the new award winning Coleman Divide+ 350 Torch.  With an expansive 350 meter beam distance, this sturdy Divide+ 350 LED Torch combines a weather resistant and sturdy construction with our patent-pending BatteryLock™ system.

Coleman is not a brand I would have associated with torches and certainly not something as awesome as this.  It’s a fantastic bit of kit and sits in the middle on the whole Divide+ range powering out an impressive 350 Lumens as the name suggests.

This is a superb mid-sized hand torch with impressive power output, build quality and features.

So what’s so special about this torch?  Well, the batteries in standard electric lights lose battery power over time, even when the light is turned off, because the batteries are still connected to the electronic circuit. With patented, Coleman BatteryLock™ technology and the simply twist of the flashlight head, residual battery drain is no longer a problem!

Now I have a confession to make…  all my life I’ve had a small obsession with torches, lanterns and head-torches.  Been afforded the opportunity to review a torch from Coleman wasn’t something I was overly enamored about, until the wonderful people at Coleman sent us the Divide+ 350.

After a long period of non-use, you can rest assured when
find yourself in need of light, BatteryLock™ has you covered!

Standard electric lights lose battery power over time even when they’re switched off because the battery is never truly disengaged from the electric contacts. With the patent pending Coleman BatteryLock™ technology and a simple twist of the head, battery loss will become a thing of the past.

2hrs on Maximum (350Lumens, beam distance 300m) or 50hrs on Low (35Lumens, beam distance 100m) which is quite impressive I feel.  AAA Batteries can also be purchased almost anywhere, so it’s unlikely you’ll ever get caught short.  at the heart of this beast is the LED circuit, housed within a nifty reflector

The beam pattern is excellent, combining both a concentrated beam for distance and searching as well as a broad beam in light your surroundings

I can remember a time when 100 Lumens was a very impressive light output, however at 350 Lumens this certainly provides more than enough light for most users and applications.  Great for walking, keeping in the car for emergencies or safety and security around the house.

Thanks to that twist Divide+ feature, battery should be vastly improved when not in use for prolonged periods of time

Able to withstand impact from a 1m drop and the addition of weather resistance, this mid-sized torch has numerous applications and possibilities.  At kist 362g it’s not going to weigh you down either!

At approximately £35.00 it’s also very competitively priced and certainly worth your attention if you’re in the market for a new light stick.  I have many torches, some of which don’t come close to this in terms of power, however they’re still going strong to this day after years of usage.

It’ll be interesting to see  how the Divide+ 350 from Coleman stands up to heavy usage, however first impressions are more than favorable!  My only gripe is that there’s no case, not a deal breaker but something that aids storage.

Available in 75 – 750 Lumen variants, this sits nicely in the middle of the range and provides, I feel, a great balance between size, output and flexibility.  Checkout out the Coleman homepage for more details and this and their other great products
