Godd light, good build quality, good use.
It is not the lighter one, it does not have the biggest lifetime...
It has a regulator, so you can make it act as you wish!
U can increase it light traveling in the deep forest in the middle of the night or set it to the low then you sit at the camp near the fireplace with your friends.
The most great thing of this headlamp is regulated output.
The second great thing is - it CAN produce more light then you ever need.
Not actually.
The plastic case for batteries not as good as may be but it does not matter much.
If you set output to the high the lifetime will be very short.
But the light produced by headlamp not linearly depends on regulator position!
On mine, with fresh batteries, it produce maximum light starting from 60% regulator level.
Increasing output by regulator does not affect light at all - so it useless!
I test my headlamp lifetime ajustin output to maximum seen level from time to time.
After 5 hours I give up - it still light at full and regulator decreased from 60% to 30%.
Average 8-10 hour of great light - much more I need.
The best headlamp I ever use.
If you sometime need really good light do not buy cheap headlamps. Take this one. With regulator setted to the low position it will live the same time as chipper ones but if you will need good light - you only need to turn regulator and you will get it!
