Great for the money – LED Headlamp 1W LED Reviews

posted by doctorjre on 09/07/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Great headlamp for the price. Bright when batteries are new. fits smaller heads well and is not too unbalanced. For the money you can't beat it.
Cons:
Plastic is a little cheap. The hinge on the battery cover doesn't look like it will last many years. My switch sticks a little from time to time. Bright LED dims after a few minutes of constant use. Either not properly heat sinked or there is a lack of DC-DC inverter inside (driven straight from batt output).
Other:
Good for smaller heads, great value.
Bottomline:
For $7 you absolutely cannot beat this. It has totally paid for itself in the first week of ownership. I use it all the time with rechargable NIMHs AAs. It is great. Even though some of the build quality is suspect, and it dims slightly quite quickly, its stilll a great deal.
