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

    Pros:

    - Cheap

    - Bright

    - 18650 battery which is better than AA and especially AAA

    - Comes with a charger, mine came with EU plug :)

    Cons:

    - Battery is exhausted pretty quickly - about 3h on maximum.I use it with http://www.dealextreme.com/p/trustfire-protected-18650-3-7v-true-2400mah-rechargeable-lithium-batteries-2-pack-20392

    Get two 18650 batteries with it , so you have one spare at all times.

    OtherThoughts:

    All in all I'm satisfied with this item. I have used it so far when ridding a bike in the city in evening hours when traffic is still heavy. This light is VERY helpful for bikers that ride fast along with traffic and need to be SEEN. I feel much more comfortable now because cars honer my right of way !

    It would be great for camping as well, if you unscrew the plastic lens in front the light becomes EXTRA WIDE, just watch out not to lose the sealing rubber ring and plastic lens as it all falls apart

    Bottomline:

    I have bike light http://www.dealextreme.com/p/1w-2-mode-50-lumen-led-bike-light-with-mount-4-aaa-18307 which is rated 50 Lumens, this headlamp is roughly 3 times brighter so it could be 150 Lumens indeed. You have to take one quality light from famous brand and compare it then , but for the chinese budget items I think it's great.
