3 x AA headlamp – Retractable 1-LED White Light Zoom Headlight - Black Reviews

posted by paulweig on 01/18/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Performs as described at an attractive price. Well balanced on head with battery pack at the back. The 3 cells fit well, battery compartment is the right size. Carton box says 75 hour duration - true figure for non-rechargables.
Cons:
The lamp-head pivot is rather delicate and the steps too big, would be better to have no ratchet and tighter, stronger pivot pin, even a small bolt. This is the only weak point.
Other:
In the event of the pivot failing, the lamp-head may have to be fixed to the housing with double-sided tape, restoring full functionality.
Bottomline:
Very good value for the money, recommend to buy.
