Needs more flood – Cree Q5-WC 3-Mode 150-Lumen LED Headlamp (3*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
Super bright headlamp. You can see very well with it to distances up to 100 meters. No SOS-mode which is good. No blinking modes what so ever, very good.
Cons:
Light has too much throw. More flood would be better for a working light. You get blinded by the bright spot when looking at something that is too close to you.
Other:
Overall quality seems to be alright. The battery compartment lid is well engineered. Aluminium part works as a heat spreader.
Bottomline:
Really good headlamp for lighting your way in open grounds. Very good at distances between 5-50 meters. Could have more flood for close up usage.
