Not so bright but worth the money. – Retractable 1-LED White Light Zoom Headlight - Black Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Not the brightest option (longer operation). - Eats larger batteries (AA, longer operation). - Battery holder in the back (better balance, squeeze your head to even more tight spots). - Adjustable beam. - Funky red rear light.
Cons:
- Beam adjustment could have a wider range. Works but feels kinda cheap when adjusting. - Not the brightest option (still very tolerable) - Upmost head band is just a bit too short. - The annoying strobe function. WHO needs it?
Other:
Quite a handy one. Feels rigid in use.
Bottomline:
Good for making small repairs, heating up the sauna, outdoor activities etc. Battery life is nice (AA cells) but downside is that this is no power light. It works well in most situations, but if you need a very bright light choose another one. The LED unit build seems to be not so good quality but is tolerable.
