Great headlamp for the money – Cree XR-E Q5 230LM 3-Mode White LED Headlamp (1 x 18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
Good performance and ok quality. Light range is good for general use. 3 modes (medium, high, blinking). Nice adjustable tilt feature. Perfect for hiking, cross country skiing, biking etc.
Cons:
A bit concerned about the quality of the battery case. No problems so far, but I am sort of expecting the locking mechanism to fail at some point. If it should break it seems easy enough to fix yourself so no real worries.
Other:
Performed flawlessly through several hours in typical Norwegian snowy weather at -15deg Celsius.
Bottomline:
For the price its a no-brainer. I'm very happy with mine.
