This is a solid product, and readily available in stores. Battery life with LEDs is outstanding compared to a standard lightbulb, and the unit is reasonably bright. If you're looking for something compact you can tuck away in your jacket pocket, this is a good choice. It allows me to work hands free, without having to constantly reposition a worklight. Could also be good for fishing, for auto mechanics, or to keep in your glove box for emergencies. It also seems to be fairly water-resistant, if you work or play outside.
Compared to the Garrity headlamp I also reviewed, this unit is significantly lighter and less cumbersome but also much less bright and lacks comparable flexibility, for only $4 less. If you just need something basic and don't need to see way ahead of you, this should be more than adequate. I've owned (and lost) about 7 of these in the last 3 years, and not once have I experienced any product failure.
One side note-- the product picture makes it look like the light is red. It's actually white, although there is one red LED if you're reading maps and don't want to ruin your night vision.
