I was looking for a small LED headlamp, as I cannot find a convenient way of mounting a pulsar II and this fit the bill. It is reasonably bright and very light weight. It does not seems to be water proof, however. When getting to the batteries there is no o-ring or seal. I think I can make it reasonably waterproof with some scotch tape (as I will not need to change the battery often with the > 12hr run time). Compared to my other heavier water proof headlamps this is a nice light weight change and I am looking forward to testing it this season.

Bought 5 as gifts. My lamp broke and I thought I was at fault in not understanding the directions. To hear the same thing happened to he other 4 leads me to believe it's the lamp. The 4 recipients are experienced campers. The lamp is made so poorly that each broke when trying to insert the battery. I could understand the 12 year old having difficulty and perhaps forcing it but not the other 4 adults. Very disappointed.
The Black Diamond Equipment Ion Headlamp uses a 6V silver oxide battery and I assume you could pick on up at any drug store.

Comes with a 6 volt Energizer 2CR11108 28L lithium battery.||Any standard 6 volt camera battery 2CR11108 will work.||Should be avaiable from any walmart, best buy, photo store. Many online retailers from amazon to ebay to best buy and ritz photo.
