Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month
Takes 2xAA. Seems to last longer than those that take 3xAAA. As a wider coverage but still have good brightness in the center. Simple on/off switch.
One of the plastic tip on the door/hinge broke off 6 months ago, but surprisingly the door/hinge still managed to close shut with friction. And finally, the other plastic tip broke off last week, now there is nothing to hold the batteries in place. I could probably rubber-band it together when I need to use it again.
Sometime the switch gets jammed. But with a quick tap, it will click in place.
I brought 3 different headlamps from DX. Mainly used for building my house when there were no electricity. I have all 3 of them more than 1 year. This head lamp is by far my favorite. Simple on/off switch, and was quick to recharge only 2xAA batteries (coz I only have 2xAA charger)
If you are concerned with the build quality and don't mind using 3xAAA, look into this one.
