Rated 3 out of 5 Bad design When this headlamp is on, it performs exactly as you'd expect it to, but it's not while it's on that is the issue. Because the on/off/selector slide switch is so exposed and easy to move from side-to-side, when the headlamp is stored in a pouch, backpack, bag, pocket, or any other place that you might carry it, it will easily be turned on by a nudge and the battery will die. An easy way to solve this would be to open the battery compartment and turn one of the batteries around, but on this headlamp that is very difficult and requires a coin or some tool to pry the compartment open, which is held in by an L-shaped lug of flimsy plastic, which is twisted and weakened every time you pry the compartment open. It will break after doing this a few times,and then the compartment will not stay closed without tape. Overall it is a very poor design. 02/18/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Rogerbl Did not last long poor assembly I received this as Christmas present.After a few months the main beam failed. On inspection it was found that the micro-switch had become detached. Now only fit for the bin. 04/04/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★ by MissFixIt Nice, entry-level unit Have purchased many over the years for work and home. Nice design. Easy to use. Hinge is a weak spot--it will break if it falls more than a couple of feet. Those with XL heads need to look elsewhere. Had trouble cleaning contacts after I left batteries in it too long without turning it on. Works well used on a cap. Can be worn around neck, upside-down, if you don't want a forehead mark (it will leave a forehead mark). Strap could be a bit longer/larger. Water resistance would raise my rating, as well as a more durable hinge. 04/26/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Looky This product has two light settings. Really bright white light and a soft red light setting. I found very comfortable to wear an oh, so handy!This light is much brighter than any others I've tried. 05/02/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★ by camper This product has one big problem This headlight provides great illumination and is comfortable to wear. But is has one major drawback, which is the on/off switch. It is quite ironic really - it is often quite tricky to find the on/off switch in the dark as there is a lump on the bottom which is the same sze and shape as the on/off switch. But, what is REALLY annoying is that the headlamp consistently gets switched on when being carried in a bag, pocket or whatever. Often it would have been on for hours before I discover it has switched itself on again. 3 of us got them at the same time this xmas and we all find the same problem. So far I haven't had to replace the batteries, so it has impressive battery life, but battery life will certainly be less than it ought to be. Fortunately for Energizer, they manufacture the batteries too! 03/22/2012
