I wish I had six arms so I could do more of what I needed to (can’t have enough arms to do everything). When I’m trying to get something done in the dark, I either have to hookup a work light, or hold a flashlight… and running power out for a worklight is inconvenient. Portable worklights can be pretty expensive. A headlamp would be a good solution, but there are so many that don’t fit, are too heavy, uncomfortable, or break within the first week unless you spend enough to buy a worklight.
Thankfully, there are many decent headlamps coming out now that we can actually afford! I’ve looked around for a good choice – and there really are quite a few good choices. I finally settled on this one and am impressed for a few reasons. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=me%3DA35EHEGYHENR3B&field-keywords=led+headlamp
This headlamp is comfortable, doesn’t feel heavy, and is definitely bright enough. I was impressed with the build quality: smooth finish and no rattles.
Clicking the button on top of the center LED housing cycles through the modes: Center, Outer Two, All Three, Strobe. The center LED is plenty bright, the outer two are a little brighter than the single center, and all three are obviously the brightest. The outer LEDs are very well aimed to converge with the center, seemingly at any distance. The fitment adjusts to fit kids as well as adults.
The only thing I think could have been better is if the battery pack used the smaller 14500 (AA sized) lithium ion batteries. The 18650s are pretty big, which provides two benefits that I can see: balances out the weight of the LED housings and gives a long life between charges. I really love that this comes with a charger accessory for just about everything, 12V DC (Car Adapter), USB, AC.
Overall, I think this light is a pretty sweet find and will serve its purpose very well. For camping, caving, bike riding at night, taking the dog out for the nightly potty break, etc… I give this a 5 out of 5.
