  • Good for occasional usage, but not much

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

    Pros:

    + Not very expensive
    + Uses a single AA battery
    + Comes with a pouch
    + Focusable beam
    + Side switch is easily accessible

    Cons:

    - Beam is not very floody, even at the largest setting
    - When you focus too much the center has a square pattern, you can even distinct the shape of the emitter (3 segments, probably a XP-E)
    - The headband doesn't maintain very well the flashlight, when you're static it's ok, but if you walk or run it'll be prone to bounce up and down
    - Blueish tint

    OtherThoughts:

    Beam is mostly throw, with a lot of circular rings visible, even at the floodier setting.

    Bottomline:

    There's not much choice on DX for single AA headlamps. This one could have been a good one, alas the beam is not very pleasant, and the stability of the body will be a problem in most situations.
