Hi, I've been looking at torches and there are various 'burn times' what does this mean? Thank you.

in answer to your question,
the burntime is roughly the length of time that a torch will produce a usable level of light on a single full battery, ie between recharges.

eg a 50w 12v bulb on a 12v 4amp-hour battery =
(50/12 = 4amps (ish) per hour)
60 minite burntime

this is approx. usually it will be slightly less.
