According to the description at www.torpedo.com.au just replace them with 4 x AAA Batteries. But that is for the model advertised at that link.

Apparently there are several variants. Which one are you talking about?

What model torch is it? Is there anything on it or the packing that said only use such and such batteries?

I cannot see why not just three alkaline ones from the supermarket.

But to be safe search for the torch and read it's specifications.

I use energizer AA and AAA recharble batteries in A/C & TV remotes tourches XBox controlers and camera's they have a larger storage capacity than normal batteries lasting 2 to 3 times longer. The charger is 240v with a 12v adaptor for the car which we take on holidays and always have a few spare batteries on hand.

Batteries are batteries and brand name has little to do with it, we just use standard Duracell alkalines...... cheap, readily available and they work.

Any good alkaline battery will do.

You could by the LED Lenser one and pay a price for no advantage.

Hi Pricilla,

The P7 accepts 4 x standard AAA batteries available from any supermarket.
Alkaline batteries are best for longer life.
I use Energizer Max AAA batteries but other brands (eg Duracell) will also be OK.

I have the same torch and I just use rechargeables, but any AAA will do.

We have two Led Lenser torches and haven,t found any batteries that last as long as the ones that came with the torches when we brought them.

I think someone else should post a comment that any batteries are fine. I'm not sure if this point has been made clear enough yet.

That's right any batteries will do the same job but we haven't found any that last as long as the led lensers and we have tried a fair few and they aren't the cheap ones and that's as far as it goes with Led Lenser, we have two of there torches.

Only use LL batteries.
The torch will not work with anything but, will self destruct 30 seconds after installing 'other brand' batteries, will transmit a coded alien signal to a cloaked mothership in orbit telling it it has been violated, and may even teleport the holder of the torch to the anal probing department for additional conditioning.
