I got this for an overnight relay race and wow it is BRIGHT. Its been 10 years since I got a new headlamp and paid over $100 at that time. This lamp was pricy even after STP discounts, but is worth every penny. The spot mode is mind blowing. I really think I could use it to mountain bike at nigh...

This is my first rechargeable LED headlamp, but this one seems to be of very good quality. It's bright and the batteries seem to last longer than expected. It's a bit tricky to charge as it requires a USB port rather than a regular wall outlet. The wire connectors are also a bit tight. After that it's a great light.

As a heavy duty truck technician working under the equipment and outside lighting the area is key. This product has all the features needed to light up the area I am working in. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a durable light. The only drawback is not showing a led to indicate when the battery pack is fully charged while plugged into the wall.

For years I had to listen to my friend Johnny the wannabe canoe guide go on and on about his princeton tec headlamps. Made in America, good customer support, blah, blah, blah. I will admit up front that we are both headlamp junkies, having gone through a number of petzl products over the years, who, by the way do NOT have good customer service. But THIS particular headlamp is the supernova of all headlamps. Sure, it doesn't have a little red light so you can pretend to be politically correct when having a conversation about global warming with your friends without blinding them, so what. Shut it off.
The headlamp itself is incredibly bright. I don't even use the brightest bulb most of the time, but when I do, my town loses its dark sky certification. And it keeps a charge for a long time, which is easily recharged by plugging the USB into your computer or car charger. The top of the headlamp says "h20 1m", which I doubt. It may very well be, but I wouldn't take the chance submerging it. Could possibly be a misprint there, and also on the box where it claims to be 260 lumens, while STP is claiming 200. Either way, it is super bright.
NOTE TO STP: Poor packing job, folks! No bubble wrap or anything in the shipping box! The headlamps I bought were getting beaten up by the bypass pruners!
I comes with a USB charging cable that you can use with a computer, solar panel or cell phone wall charger. I can't remember if it came with a charger. I just use my computer, mobile phone wall charger or computer.
