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

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

Pros:
Decent headlamp. VERY bright and tosses a good beam a long ways, would be great for caving. Lasts a good while on batteries. Not too heavy or uncomfortable, can be aimed up/down.
Cons:
Battery case is cheaply constructed, does not look like it will last, but hey it was cheap!
Other:
Not sure if this is a defect or a feature, but mine NEVER turns off, it just goes to a VERY dim mode, but it doesnt seem to drain the batteries and I can always find it in the dark, so sort of a nice feature.
Bottomline:
Was worth the money, not the best headlamp nor the worst, but a worthy unit
