Poor quality item – 1+1 1W White LED + Red 3-Mode LED Headlamp (3*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
Head band is same quality as other headlamps. The actual circuit and the LED seems good. Inclusion of the red LED is a good backup for emergency when the batteries are almost drained.
Cons:
Shoddy quality control. My unit came without the battery pack screw. It is a big screw with a plastic head, looking at the pictures on DX. How can someone miss it during quality check, I don't know.
Bad reflector and lense, results in a slanted beam of light and uneven throw.
Other:
I am ok with the bad plastic quality and bad build quality, but the basic behavior should not be hampered by cutting corners there.
Bottomline:
This is way overpriced, should be costing around 2.99 looking at the build and utility.
