Used it all summer as both lantern and headlamp.
I was confused about headlamp operation, had trouble turning it off until my son pointed that I wasn't patient enough, it has slow off and I was cycling the button too fast through low and ... Read More
Reviewed by SoCali from L.A. California on Wednesday, September 4, 2013Took it camping and it did everything it promised to do.
Reviewed by Atomic Frolic from Wyoming on Tuesday, July 9, 2013The overhead lights in my 35-year-old pop-up camper don't always work. This lamp brightened up the whole cabin. I like the adjustable feet and beam brightness. It was good for reading in bed, or out at the picnic table. Haven't tried it as a headlamp yet, but it may be a little heavier than one with smaller batteries. But I LIKE the fact that this doesn't take some tiny expensive battery. I always carry several AAs around. With the adapter supplied, you can even use the goofy feet for group shots with your small camera.
Reviewed by dollarhiker from Newington on Saturday, July 6, 2013Well constructed. Nice buttons and overall features. However this setup is larger than it looks and is too heavy for what I call back-country backpacking. The legs are flexible but are only meant to hold the light. Don't expect to dual use then on even the smallest compact camera.
Reviewed by Ms. O from Seattle on Tuesday, June 25, 2013My son loves this thing. He figured how to take the top off so it works like a flashlight. We hung it on a tree, set it on a table and it worked great to read by in the tent.
Reviewed by Aspensteve from Aspen, Colorado on Tuesday, June 25, 2013I bought this light based on mostly good reviews, especially at a great price. Some said that the headlamp part was difficult to fit back into the lamp section..I had no issues with it whatsoever. I haven't had to change batteries yet, so no input on the battery life yet, but so far very pleased with the light output and overall function. Cree LED's make this little light very bright! I have Cree bulbs on my motorcycle offroad aux lights and they're ridiculously bright
