Pros:
Fully adjustable band has a wide range. The comfort level is acceptable. The 2-setting light is plenty bright enough for many applications. The surprise of a rechargeable battery built-in & the inclusion of an AC recharger makes this an incredible bargain! Am personally quite fond of the lower beam setting coming on first, as this is used 90% of the time for our needs. Battery lasts for hours with a full charge & then recharges fully again within a few hours.
Cons:
As with most things here, no instructions in our native English language are included. For example: we've yet to determine how to access the battery (though it is likely through the removal of a few phillips head screws). The hinge assembly seems study enough at present, though we have our doubts concerning its longevity in regards to holding it's position.
Other:
We would have given the Build Quality rating a "5" except for the swing hing directing the down angle of the beam, as it seems to need some additional strengthening to make it more durable. After shopping locally for a similar headlamp we found the costs prohibitive as much so as finding DX's price low enough to consider feeling guilty over (as well as hating "Mal*Wart" even more). We are most pleased with this investment.
Bottomline:
We searched DX's wide range of headlamps for nearly a full hour before purchasing this one. This invested time of research was rewarded, as this light is working quite well for our needs. The included AC recharger for the built-in rechargable battery makes this an affordable, reasonably durable headlamp headlamp well worth your consideration. 5 stars overall again, DX, thanks so much!
