Someone asked me recently where to buy every day carry- EDC torch lights in Malaysia. Torch light in my opinion is one of the most important EDC, prepper, survival and self defense tool there is. In almost any imaginable survival scenario, day will turn into night and being able to see in the dark puts you in a better advantage to survive. Having said that, not all torches are created equal (as with cars, packs, knives etc). So, if you wanna receive good and reliable advise on what torches to buy, you may want to check out my ‘go to guy’ for torches, Mr Dannie Chua of Radiant Den.
Dannie and Diane are a couple who just recently opted to to start up their own business after spending many years working for others. Their new setup, Radiant Den specializes in LED torches, torch accessories, batteries, chargers and all sort of other camping gadgets. While the later complements their business, their main passion and interest lies in anything and everything that emits light. Lots and lots of lumens kind of light.
At the time of my visit to their new shop, new stock has just been arriving and they were both very busy trying to organize their showcases. I assured Dannie I will leave him alone to his work but he insisted to show me some of the new toys that has just landed. That is the sort of guy Dannie is. He loves talking to people and showing them new products.
I have known Dannie for a long time now. In fact he is the first person who manage to convince me to invest in good torch lights. He is not the sort of salesman that will try to get you to buy a whole lot of stuff you don’t need. Dannie use and tests all his products and would recommend one to you that suit your need and budget. He is not shy to tell you don’t buy this or that (although he is selling it) for the right reasons. Something you would rarely find in people who’s job is to sell.
I now own a few Fenix lights, all of which I bought through Dannie. His recommendation has always been spot on. On a daily basis, I carry at least 2 units on me at all time. While some may think that is a bit over excessive, I always think of the second unit in the pack as a back-up plan. As for batteries, I now swear on rechargeable batteries for my torches. While standard alkaline batteries are convenient, nothing beats rechargeable batteries as a long term and cost effective solution to all your torch (and head torch) light needs. All this solution you can find through Dannie and Diane at Radiant Den Store.
Radiant Den is located at the address below:

So, if you are ever looking to get advice or buy quality and reliable torch lights, head lamps, lanterns, rechargeable batteries, batteries, charges and other camping gadgets in Malaysia, I would highly recommend that you look up Dannie and Diane at Radiant Den. Look them up on their website and their Facebook page. You will not be disappointed.
