Speleo Nova for me.

I had a Tiga, but I didn't like the battery and the lead was rubbish. It soon broke and needed repairing.

Had the Speleo for years now and it's never let me down.

Hope you are sitting down.

You are looking at around 200 quid. The battery is now 6 years old (LIthium Ion) as it was off my old speleo light. I upgraded to the nova when it came out about 3 or 4 years ago. I know it's expensive, but I haven't had to buy batteries for years. I gets used about twice a week and I think it works out at about a penny a charge. The charger is brilliant and you can leave the battery on cherge and forget about it as it won't overcharge.

Alot of people spend upwards of 200 pounds on rods, but skimp on the one piece of kit that makes night fishing easier.

Petromax Paraffin lantern for me along with the MFA 3 in 1 zoom.

Watch me get stick now for using a parrafin lantern. But they are reliable in my book and cheap to run, 500cp which will last for ever, unlike the northstar by coleman rust buckets.lol (more flak on its way).
ok so the Petromax is 90 quid but money well spent as it will last for years.
little tip, leave a couple of cobbles on the lantern for 3 or 4 minutes and shove them in your pockets, they become excellent handwarmers on those cold nights.

The MFA are about 60 quid and come with a lithiam battery which on low beam they say will last for 36 hours on a single charge.
