  • Nicely made bright headlamp

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - easy to adjust the head strap to comfortably fit your head size

    - bright

    - can adjust direction of light from what you are looking at to what you are working on with your hands

    - compact, so it won't obstruct your way if you are going through tight areas

    - light, so will be easy to wear for extended periods

    - nicely made (but obviously not top quality)

    Cons:

    - did not see any difference between 1w and 3w settings

    - dark spot in center of light

    - you can actually adjust the direction of the light to point directly into your eyes - this would be blinding.

    - red flashing lights are very bright and are of limited use - perhaps at a party or if you are laying wounded by the side of the road and need medical attention

    - one of the springs in the battery clip was loose when I received the unit and I had to fiddle around with it a bit to get the battery to contact properly.

    OtherThoughts:

    - other people have commented on the type of the LED - I don't know how to identify them so can't say what type is in the unit I received

    Bottomline:

    Nicely made, bright headlamp that easy to adjust both for your head size and also the direction of the lamp when you are wearing it.
