  • Nice bright Headlight with variable focus

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    + very bright

    + small and light

    + long battery lifetime in "mid" mode which is more al "low" mode (about 100mA current)

    + wide focus range

    + 3 modes

    + works fine with rechargeable batteries

    Cons:

    - short battery lifetime in "hi" mode (up to 500mA current)

    - cheap build quality

    - shaky (when tighten around the head, the front part of the headlight is very loose. Would flip up and down when biking rough trails, but works fine for walking or skiing)

    OtherThoughts:

    Realy good deal for this price.

    Works better with NiMh Batteries than with disposible Batteries, although their open-circuit voltage is lower, because in bright mode the voltage of NiMh doesn't drop so low.

    AA Batteries would be better for a bright lamp like this.

    Bottomline:

    Good price after all. I would buy it again.
