Very good headlamp – Cree Q5-WC 3-Mode 150-Lumen LED Headlamp (3*AAA) Reviews

posted by NicolasCJ on 04/29/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Good package
Good bright white beam
Use AAA (light and easy to find)
Adjustable and comfortable straps
Cons:
It seems less bright than a classical flashlight (e.g. sku.17401) even if it uses the same LED emitter and the same batteries (800-900 mA NiH AAA).
I don't see any difference between the three proposed modes
Other:
It is not very easy to open/close the battery trap but as it claims to be water proof, I won't consider it as a "cons", even if I didn't test it under the rain.
Bottomline:
You have all the advantages of both a headlight and flashlight.
I'll order another one.
