Pros:
Does the trick. Works the way it should, and it fits my head and/or hard hat.
Brighter than the simple Walmart LED headlamp that was replaced by this one.
Cons:
Build quality is poor. My headlight fell apart within a week of use. First part that failed was the crappy switch. After that, the switch simply fell off. Then soon after that the whole apparatus came to pieces.
Other:
I have since repaired the light and re-soldered the weak points, and mummified it with electrical tape. It still works despite its self destructive habits. You just have to teach it some manners with tape!
Bottomline:
Not a bad option for the price. If you have a few extra bucks, I'd heavily suggest you get the next step up.
