    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Bright! Good throw. Tight beam. Uses 3x AA. I use ni-mh rechargeables.

    Excellent headlamp, but not solid as a rock

    posted by MisterNobody on 06/28/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Brilliant amount of light, with good throw. Batteries last for ages, maybe 8..10 hours on high. If you need a high powered headlamp, this is brilliant bang for your buck.
    Cons:
    Like others mention, the closing "battery cap" twists into place. It's easy to break the pins off the cap, but its al...

    Good design with bad quality plastics.

    posted by nr420 on 02/08/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Has a nice throw. I used this while cycling and was often able to get driver's attention by pointing the light to their faces, tens of meters away.

    Excellent lamp, I love it

    posted by sammybones on 09/26/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Great form-factor; looks cool with the aluminum housing. Very bright, with very tight throwing hot-spot, and decent spill on the sides. Aluminum reflector and housing keeps the LED cool too. The button is nice and easy to click.
    Cons:
    Like others have said, the battery door isn't the best. You can always just duct-tape in closed. The differentiation of the m...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month
