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

Pros:
Very bright, works with AA batteries - that's very convenient. Don't buy AAA flashlight - too expensive to run, and rechargeabes are have so much lower capacity than AA's.
Cons:
The battery compartment cap is hard to fit, and plastic hook seems too weak to hold it in place. Sometimes it doesn't close and a hook that's not tupposed to come of snaps and comes of. Very hard to take it off afterwards, and not water-tight. I'm afraid the hook with snap off, it seams to small for the pressure. It took me several minutes until I managed to closed it correcty so it won't snap off, and I had light. It must be much harder at night. Says rechargeable battery included, but it's not.
Other:
Not sure if the compartment cap problem is my unit only and if it's enough to ask DX to replace it. I'l wait and see if it brakes within a couple of weeks.
Bottomline:
Other than the battery compartment door problem it looks like a very good headlamp, and plastic does not look too cheap.
