  • Great headlamp

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

    Pros:

    Very bright light, efficient and well designed. The dimming function is really good. The flood mode is very wide and the throw mode goes very very far. Very simple to operate, the buttons are well located and reliable. Very well built. Waterproof, works under heavy rain.

    Cons:

    The wire from the battery to the lamp could be a bit longer - it gets fully extended when using it over a bike helmet. The tilting mechanism could be more precise, maybe using a bolt like that famous sports camera. It is also made of plastic, so I don't know about its lifetime.

    OtherThoughts:

    The battery lasts really long. In 100% brightness, it goes up to 3 hours before it starts to dim, and turns off when the battery protection activates - that will give you around 8 hours of light. When fully dimmed, it works for around 40 hours, but the light output is really low. That for only one 18650 battery!

    Bottomline:

    Perfect for cycling, for urban commuting and trail riding, as you can adjust the beam to your riding needs and to make yourself visible to the traffic. Also great for running, as it lights the path and the rear red led makes you visible. For camping it is also great, as the battery lasts very long when dimmed and you leave your hands free. It comes with a 18650 battery and a charger, so it's not that expensive.
