Excellent choice! – 1+1 1W White LED + Red 3-Mode LED Headlamp (3*AAA) Reviews

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

Pros:
Bright, compact, inexpensive. May be used for all activities except caving (but can be used as secondary (not backup!) light source). May be easily modified to suit user's odd needs.
Cons:
Doesn't turn off with single push (5...10 seconds after the mode is selected) - have to cycle through all modes. After turning off the bright light, it's easy to leave small LED turned on. Useless small red LED, but it may be easily replaced with 5mm white one.
Other:
Build quality is as expected for item's price. The better cycle will be: off - red - bright - normal - off. Instant-off feature also is really needed.
Bottomline:
Excellent choice, especially for those who know how to use the soldering iron.
