5 of 5 Love Light June 20, 2021
Reviewer: Kasra Kamooneh from Berkeley, CA United States  
Looking for LED headlamps that would run perfectly on 1.2V rechargeable batteries. Only found a couple and this was one of them. Works great so far and I have a feeling it will for a long time, Thank You!

5 of 5 Great Headlamp January 11, 2020
Reviewer: Nolan YoungNolan from Chino, CA UnitStCatesChino California  
This headlamp has a good flood beam, good for lighting up a work area when I need to use both hands to assemble components.
I was pleasantly surprised by how light it feels compared to some other headlamps I have used. The straps are nicely adjustable and comfortable. The light beam is a wide flood of good quality and works well at close range without having bright or dark spots. I don't know how far the light will project it's beam in the dark outdoors such as camping as I live in the city, however it does provide good useable light up to around 50 feet in my backyard.
Yes I do reccomend this headlamp!
