Varta Indestructible Torches

H-Squared are approved distributors of the Varta Indestructible range of ultra-tough LED torches. The range includes two headlights, three hand torches and one hand lamp, all of which have an extremely tough metal and engineering plastic/rubber housing that protects the inner components from impact and pressure damage. 


Varta Indestructible torches can survive a 9m drop and up to 8 tonnes of pressure, making them amongst the toughest LED torches on the market. They incorporate high brightness CREE LED technology (up to 150 lumens) which helps to give a beam range of up to 350m. All torches in the range feature an energy saving mode to preserve the life of batteries. 


New Energizer Rechargeables

We’re constantly expanding our ranges to include the latest in battery technology - it’s our way of keeping ourselves and our customers ahead of the competition. Energizer’s new rechargeables, which use the latest NiMH technology, are one such addition to the H-Squared range. 


These innovative batteries stay charged when not in use – in fact, even after a year they still retain an 80% capacity. They also have a longer cycle life than conventional rechargeables and give greater levels of performance than batteries of the same capacity. Energizer’s new rechargeables are available in three variants: Extreme AA (2300mAh), Extreme AAA (800mAh) and Precision AA (2400mAh). 


New Improved Procell

H-Squared also supplies the new, improved Duracell Procell battery range. For years Procell alkaline batteries have led the way in performance and reliability, and now they've got even better. An AA now lasts up to 5% longer in typical motor driven devices and up to 25% longer in high drain devices such as digital cameras.
