Here’s one of the latest torches released by LED Lenser called the LED Lenser X14. What’s so special about it? Well for one, it features two synchronized LED light sources which can blast out a powerful converged beam that will light up your path for up to 350 metres! It’s rugged design makes it perfect for exploring the outdoors at night time.
There are torches, then there are TORCHES. The LED Lenser M7 torch is of the latter superior variety. The LED Lenser M7 is the update to the ever popular LED Lenser P7 featuring a micro processor controlled multi mode switch and an incredible 225 lumens from AAA batteries. This is a high spec torch.
Today if you’re an Australian like me, you’ll be proud of very Cadel Evans who has just become the first Aussie to win the Tour de France. Being a hobby cyclist myself, I can imagine just how gruelling this race must have been on the body, mind and soul.
The LED LENSER P5R is small, lightweight, an energy-saving marvel and at the same time a giant of brightness. In spite of its light weight, it generates the light output of a spotlight!

This is the first of a couple of Gadget Christmas Gift Idea posts to help you all with buying for those who love gadgets. The LED Lenser MT7 LED Torch is one of the most advanced and rugged of its kind in the world. It features a micro processor which allows it to have 8 different kind of light functions as well as a almost indestructible aluminium body that will protect it from the toughest knocks.
I’ll concede another fact about me today – I love torches. I’d attribute this affinity to things like pretending it was a light saber and of course illuminating my path during many adventures in the scary dark as a kid; especially at school and church camps. Basically, the bigger and brighter the flashlight, the better.
If only I had the new Led Lenser X21…actually I’m glad I didn’t because I’m sure there would be many adults walking around today with slightly impaired eye-sight. You see, the Led Lenser X21 has been touted to be the world’s brightest mass-manufactured LED light. It provides over 950 lumens of focusable light – this is equivalent to 950 candles! Amazingly, it’s only powered by four D-sized batteries.
The rugged construction of the LED Lenser X21 is also worth noting – will withstand rough treatment from you and the elements. Huge endorsement from the Mr.Gadget team for this torch.
This is a fantastic specimen of torch technology at its best. See more details of the LED Lenser X21 torch below:

Press Release for Targus Lap Chill Mat
Sydney, 24 February 2010 – The Targus Lap Chill Mat has been honoured in the
CES Innovation 2010 Design and Engineering Awards for its aesthetic design,
functionality and unique features. Targus’ innovative cooling device offers
a convenient, comfortable and ergonomic work surface that regulates the
temperature of laptops, when used on the lap as well as the work desk.
The Awards, which are endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of
America, are judged by a panel of independent industry designers, engineers
and media. Targus won its award in the Computer Accessories category, one of
36 categories overall. The judging criteria not only examined design and
engineering innovation, but also how the product compares to others in the
Resting on users’ laps, the Targus Lap Chill Mat disperses heat with dual
USB powered fans that provide ventilation, and features an open design
allowing the fans to run quietly. The ergonomic tilt makes typing easy,
whilst the soft neoprene base provides cushioned comfort on your lap. Four
rubber stops on the face of the Chill Mat prevent the laptop from slipping.
“The Targus Lap Chill Mat meets a growing trend that is seeing laptop users
leaving traditional office environments and enjoying the flexibility and
freedom of working from home, in shared workspaces or on-the-go,” said
Targus Australia’s Accessories Product Manager, Aaron Shooter. “The
introduction of cooling devices to our everyday laptop use not only helps to
extend the laptop’s lifespan, but encourages faster performance, fewer
crashes and provides heat protection for work surfaces.”
This would suit someone who spends a lot of time outdoors who wants a quality heavy duty tool with all the major functions. I particularly like the length of the saw which means you can effectively cut branches for a fire, pruning or even carving up a nice walking stick or spear.
