Bell + Howell Torch Lite REVIEW

Mike Bender tried the Bell + Howell Torch Lite and is not happy with it, in his review he states – ”Bell Howell Torch Lite is supposed to pivot in 8 positions but it was stuck in 1 position and when it did pivot, it broke. Some of the parts are very cheap and easily break. Bell + Howell Torch Lite is not worth buying and too much trouble to return.”

Alan Baldwin mentions in his review“Two of the Bell + Howell Torch Lites stopped working. It seems to be a bad switch. Do not buy Bell + Howell Torch Lite!”

Marlon Rigsby cautions in his review“Bell + Howell Torch Lite has poor quality control, it is made in China, so you can’t expect a good QC.”

Steve Bolts bought the Bell + Howell Torch Lite and is not happy with it. In his Bell + Howell Torch Lite review he reveals – ”It would not shut off after getting it to work. Also the host on the shopping network said it used very little battery power but it is not so. You may have to change the batteries of the Bell + Howell Torch Lite soon after you get it.”

Gerard Burke who reviewed the Bell + Howell Torch Lite reveals in his testimonial “It worked three times then on/off switch went bad. Light was sufficient when operated. Obviously Bell And Howell contracted for a bunch of these and found out just how defective they really were so they dumped them on the open market for cheap.”

Chuck Keller says in his Bell + Howell Torch Lite review“You may have to dismantle it to correct the problem. The switch works like the little plastic cam in an ink pen. You have to click once for the torch lite, again for the flashlight and finally to shut it off. It seems someone assembled the switch without even checking it. It was in backwards. There is very little to no quality control due to the numerous reports of bad switches.”

Patrick Norby reevals the pros and cons of Bell + Howell Torch Lite in his review”The light is very bright but uses batteries very quickly. The battery compartment latch has broken in everyday use and was held on with a piece of tape. Bell + Howell Torch Lite is an okay light if you have an endless supply of batteries.”

Alex Williamson says – “The battery cover will no longer stay on. It just falls right off. Other than that it is a good flashlight.”

Jeff Jones says Bell + Howell Torch Lite is not all that bad, in his review he states – “It does give off great light and the batteries seem to last a while, just cheaply made.”

Mario Rodriguez is happy with the Bell + Howell Torch Lite, in his review he states – “It is a good lamp for small areas, but not bright enough to fill a room. Biggest problem is the continuous drain on battery, even when powered off.”

Hannah Fidler says – “Bell + Howell Torch Lite is very bright but overpriced, the button seems to get stuck at times. Also, casing is flimsy, magnet isn’t great.”

Bell + Howell Torch Lite is said to have 72 lumens of light output and the amazing ultra bright LEDs are said to last for over 100,000 hours.

  1. This led flashlight is a piece of crap. Lights burned out and replaced with new batteries and doesn’t work. Don’t buy this product. I am in awe as to why the good company of Bell & Howell put this on the market.

  2. Thanks for the reviews, I was about to buy some for four of my son’s for a bug out bag, when in rough survival condition’s you sure don’t need junk…

  3. Gave 5 of 6 torch lites as gifts. Found out recently from one of the recipients that one of the torch lites has a broken on-off switch.

    There is a 30-day money back refund policy. However, I couldn’t locate a 24/7 online contact customer service address to ask about a refund.

    Customer service by phone is only available 8am to 8pm M-F, EST.

    More hassle than it is worth on the deal because on returns you have to pay shipping and handling.

    I should have looked at customer service and product reviews before I purchased this product.

  4. What a waste. Bought 3 of the torch flashlights a few months ago. have used 1 about 4 times and now switch is broken. What a piece of junk. Did not save receipt so have no info to tell them I want refund. You get what you pay for.

  5. Had to return one because it was defective, waiting one month so far for replacement. Don’t buy this product. Customer Service is very bad. Gave another as a gift and the button on the second one is defective.

  6. I don’t see where you mention the power source and exterior and interior material of the Bell Howell Torch Lite?

  7. The Bell & Howell Torchlite is a piece of junk It was suppose to pivot positions, but would not pivot in any position! And when I did get it to pivot, it broke! And I did not force it either. Also THE VERY SAME THING happened on the other three (I ordered 4). So all four easily broke and the stand with the magnet in it, won’t stay connected to the light anymore.Too much trouble returning it. Will just go to EBAY and find one almost exactly the same, BUT BUILT BETTER AND MUCH CHEAPER. DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK from Bell & Howell!! rated from 1 to 10 a MINUS 10!

    • Thanks friend, I was thinking of buying this Bell+Howell torch Lite. You just talked me out of it. Thanks again!!

    • I bought 3 of these lights, none of them work. This is a major scam. I got charged $26.00, a total rip off.
