Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Columbus, OH United States  
Brighter and lighter than my 4-year-old Milwaukee. We'll see how bright it is in 4 years?  Seems like a fine replacement sturdy enough.

4 of 5 Almost Perfect I would by again January 17, 2024
Reviewer: Auto-Hunting-Outdoors from South Dakota, United States  
The unit itself is perfect. High quality build, the correct battery type and extremely comfortable. The only issue I have is that it is not real straight forward to enter the ultra low light mode or the SOS mode. You could say that it is a user issue and that I am not that capable. I have used these types of systems for over 30 years. I am regarded world wide as a key computer expert. I know how to operate stuff like this. I can get into all modes, but you need to figure it out. I have been a Nitecore customer for a long time and I would recommend this as probably the best light of it's type anywhere. I would purchase this over the more expensive Nitecore options becauase it does everything you need and long battery life and you do not really need a brighter lite. This model is the right choice.

Reviewer: Brian Schmidt from El Paso, TX United States  
The head lamp works great. The levels of brightness is an excellent option. I like that it also has a red lamp. Plus it was on sale, fast and easy checkout.
