Takes AAs only – LED Headlamp 1W LED Reviews

posted by howdydo on 02/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Very bright. Has both spot and wide beam at the same time - that's handy.
Simple on-off botton.
Takes 2 AA batteries.
Cons:
You need a tool to open the battery compartment, and, sadly, the latch looks like something that will break easily - just a plastic tab that you bend (carefully) to open the compartment.
Other:
Dealextreme should remove the photo of the packaging - it contains erroneous information: This light does not accept AAA batteries -- at least mine didn't, and the present description only says "AA." Looks like it used to come with an adapter...
Bottomline:
Nice lamp, probably worth the seven dollars, depending on how long it lasts. But would be worth more with a better designed latch...
