bright focused headlamp – LED Headlamp 1W LED Reviews

posted by David on 04/19/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- quite bright with 3 AAA cells - reasonably well focused beam - simple on/off switch - no flashing modes to click through
Cons:
- AA battery mode is too dim to use (1/10 as bright as AAA mode) - headband may not be large enough for those with large heads - tilt detent is a little weak
Other:
I didn't have the problem with the end cap that Kyle mentioned... it is no problem to open.
Bottomline:
I bought this headlamp to replace a 5 LED version, to get better brightness and focus. For that purpose, it does the job. With 3 AAA cells, it draws about 550mA and is almost as bright as the 2006 version "Ristoft" 1W flashlights (which are the brightest ones that I have).
