Nice headlight for the price – Retractable LED White Light Zoom Headlight - Black (3 x AAA or 18650 Lithium Battery) Reviews

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

Pros:
Pretty bright light and it runs off of AAA batteries, which is convenient. Headband pretty adjustable and fit me fine - should also fit my small headed kids pretty well if I adjust it smaller.
Cons:
The battery compartment is "sealed" by a pretty flimsy rubber covering. I don't think I'd want to use this in a downpour, but I guess that's not what it's designed for anyway... especially considering the low price.
Other:
When focused to a spot beam, the beam is the shape of the diode rather than round. Not a big deal, but I think it may be more distracting than a round beam would be at times.
Bottomline:
Good, bright light at a great price. I wouldn't use it for spelunking in an underground river, though!
