Very happy – Ultra Bright 67-LED 4-Mode Headlamp Reviews

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

Pros:
Affordable, lightweight (if you think 3 AA batteries are light....) and shines soooo bright! Will freak out anyone looking straight at you! Worth putting on all 67 LEDs just for the effect on others, ahah!
Cons:
Not much difference between the full-on (67 leds) mode and the previous mode (40-ish leds) because there is not enough space left around for the extra LEDs to shine - the black plastic border is in the way of 1/2 the size from the outer LEDs so it restricts light being emitted. That could have been better built and seems to be the problem with cheaper headlights: the outer border doesn't have enough space for the emitted light to shine out of the casing, and just hits the outer ring.....
Other:
Has worked right out of the box with rechargeable batteries, and the tilt of the lamp is fairly hefty so no worries that it will keep aiming the light floorward when walking.
Bottomline:
You probably won't use the full 67 LEDs as the light of the outer ring of LEDs is being blocked by the black ring surrounding the lamp. But that would probably be the case for the outer ring of all lamps which have not been properly "engineered"!
