Cheap, good light, a little heavy – Cree XM-L T6 868lm 3-Mode White Light Headlamp - Black (2 x 18650) Reviews

posted by bjulleseter on 12/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
* Good enough light for cycling and rollerskiing * Rechargeable * Very cheap
Cons:
* Way too heavy for running (about 250g) * Product page says 858 lumens, product box says 350 lumens (which still is good enough for me) * Not too good build quality * No bracket for helmet
Other:
I have strapped it permanently to my bicycle/roller ski helmet, and use it primarily for rollerskiing. For that purpose the lamp is a great buy. I don't notice the weight since it is worn on the helmet.
Bottomline:
For that price, I wouldn't hesitate a moment before I order this lamp.
