Excellent single-cell headlamp – High-Power Ultra Bright Cree Q3 3-Mode 110-Lumen LED Headlamp with Camouflage Pouch (1*AA/1*14500) Reviews

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

Pros:
Single AA battery required - much more power than coin cells or AAAs. Single double-throw switch (OFF and ON, no tiddly 'modes') Good sized headband, fits my 62cm/24.5" boofhead straight out of the box Incredibly lightweight compared to competitors with similar perforamance No wires on headband to get caught or worn out Lamp holder has nice 'sticky', not 'slick' feel - doesn't move around of forehead and light holds angle position fairly well Comes in a cute nylon zippered belt-bag for storage or carrying.
Cons:
Focussing assembly is a little rough in action, and has a short 'throw'. Light spread seems quite uneven, with multiple rings present, does the job fine though. Although the O-ring style attachment works well, vigorous exertion like running, rock-climbing, etc will probably knock the lens out of position. Worked fine walking around, but may wear loose over time.
Other:
Not the best torch for spotlighting or for best wide-angle lighting, but it does all of these in a workman-like manner.
Bottomline:
Possibly a little overpriced considering what you get, but is the best light for what you do get. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a simple, on/off head lamp as a light-weight travel alternative to a full-on headlamp, or as backup.
