  • Nice Headlamp

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Very bright spot
    - Good amount of spill
    - Uses cheap and easy to find 2 AA batteries
    - Seems to be water resistant, maybe even dunkable.
    - Rubber click switch is stiff and deep enough so that it won't turn on in your bag but is still easy to activate.
    - Good runtime, 2xAA has more capacity than 3xAAA

    Cons:

    - Very hard to open the battery compartment. I can do it with my finger but some people may have to use a tool.
    - Battery latch is small and because it is so stiff it looks to be prone to breaking.
    - Switch feels a little wobbly.
    - Overall construction is cheap feeling.
    - The balance is too front heavy as is the case for all headlamps of this type.

    OtherThoughts:

    Even though it uses a generic LED the beam pattern is nice and white and very bright. This is the brightest headlamp I own now. Looks like it would be fairly easy to mod.

    Bottomline:

    Overall this is a very nice headlamp
