Great product – Cree XM-L T6 868lm 3-Mode White Light Headlamp - Black (2 x 18650) Reviews

Pros:
Great building quality and design. Feels more expensive. Well balanced between light and battery pack. Great range of adjustments in height and width of straps. High mode and low mode are well balanced. I have never understood the strobe mode, but its there. Red light on the battery pack when the light is active.
Cons:
No adjustable focus. I would rather see the button on the top of the light than between the light and my forehead. That makes you have to flick the light down to turn it on and off.
Other:
Buy an external charger for the battery. The one included needs monitoring and have no turn of when full function. Or it takes forever and ever to charge the battery.
Bottomline:
Great product, does everything i ask for in a headlamp and then some.
