  • Good price, bright, but poor quality.

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

    Pros:

    Very bright.

    Cons:

    Poor quality. Just got it in the mail and there were already three rusted screws out of four screws in the battery pack unit.
    One of the positive terminals did not even make contact with the battery. I had to carefully pry out the positive plate and bent it forward to fill the gap so that it would touch the battery.
    The battery pack is enclosed by a simple rubbery cap. In the picture there are four bulges. You may think those bulges would be uncomfortable to the back of the head, but because the entire cap is soft rubber material those bulges are really soft against the head. The rubbery cap does not appear to keep out rain. Appears very cheap.

    OtherThoughts:

    There are four purple LEDs. They seem to reflect only white surfaces. Items that are dark do not reflect much light from these LED's, but the white surfaces are a significant contrast with these LED's. These are of no use to me.

    Bottomline:

    Very bright spot and not enough spill. Cheap and lacks quality. For the price of $12 it's good enough if you can make it work, and only us it indoors.
