Nice Headlamp – LED Headlamp 1W LED Reviews

posted by tralewolf on 09/12/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Very bright spot - Good amount of spill - Uses cheap and easy to find 2 AA batteries - Seems to be water resistant, maybe even dunkable. - Rubber click switch is stiff and deep enough so that it won't turn on in your bag but is still easy to activate. - Good runtime, 2xAA has more capacity than 3xAAA
Cons:
- Very hard to open the battery compartment. I can do it with my finger but some people may have to use a tool. - Battery latch is small and because it is so stiff it looks to be prone to breaking. - Switch feels a little wobbly. - Overall construction is cheap feeling. - The balance is too front heavy as is the case for all headlamps of this type.
Other:
Even though it uses a generic LED the beam pattern is nice and white and very bright. This is the brightest headlamp I own now. Looks like it would be fairly easy to mod.
Bottomline:
Overall this is a very nice headlamp
