It's a good headlamp – Flood-to-Throw 3-Mode Cree Q3 LED Headlamp (1*18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
- It's small and lightweight lamp. - This lamp uses 18650 battery! 18650 generate more power and longer runtime than Ni-MH and alkaline batterys. It's a very good thing. - Bright enough - Flood to throw (adjustable focus) - Hi / Low / Strobe modes - It has a little red signal light on the back side
Cons:
- The battery compartment was originaly designed for use three AAA batteries. Too big for one 18650 - Hinge too weak - Plastic lens - It's have not traditional reflector, just a simple machined aluminium bushing - The box crumpled by a horde of mammoth :) (It's not a big cons, the lamp is still unbroken)
Other:
The red signal light on the back makes this lamp for good secondary bycicle lamp. The red light has the same modes, Hi / Low / Strobe. The plastic lens was scratched and dirty, it's hard to fix it.
Bottomline:
It's a good buy. I buy another one for my friend.
