  • It's a good headlamp

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - It's small and lightweight lamp.
    - This lamp uses 18650 battery! 18650 generate more power and longer runtime than Ni-MH and alkaline batterys. It's a very good thing.
    - Bright enough
    - Flood to throw (adjustable focus)
    - Hi / Low / Strobe modes
    - It has a little red signal light on the back side

    Cons:

    - The battery compartment was originaly designed for use three AAA batteries. Too big for one 18650
    - Hinge too weak
    - Plastic lens
    - It's have not traditional reflector, just a simple machined aluminium bushing
    - The box crumpled by a horde of mammoth :) (It's not a big cons, the lamp is still unbroken)

    OtherThoughts:

    The red signal light on the back makes this lamp for good secondary bycicle lamp. The red light has the same modes, Hi / Low / Strobe.
    The plastic lens was scratched and dirty, it's hard to fix it.

    Bottomline:

    It's a good buy. I buy another one for my friend.
