Brilliant for the price – Flood-to-Throw Cree Q3-WC Convex Lens LED Headlamp with Brightness Control (3*AAA) Reviews

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

Pros:
Cheap, light, bright. It's plenty for night cross country, and while cycling it complements a handlebar mounted light well - bright enough to be useful for spotting potholes etc and heling out when cornering. Secure and light enough on my head that I forget it when running. Runtime exceeds an hour on 800mAh batteries. Don't know how much by yet.
Cons:
It is somewhat flimsy - the hinge on thelight and wire don't give confidence. The click positions on the light don't quite match the position I'd like the light while running. At full throw the image of the emitter is a strange off-rectangular.
Other:
I'll be getting more to stick in the car, various pockets etc.
Bottomline:
Far and away the best value head torch I've owned.
