Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jim, the Crazy Winter Fly Fisher from Colorado on Monday, August 24, 2015This 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.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Joey Barber from Minnesota on Monday, August 24, 2015I run a dog sled team and can't believe the high intensity elimination of this lamp. I could avtually see the front and beyond on a ten dog team. Great to use for training.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tech 24 from British Columbia Canada on Monday, August 24, 2015As 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.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Johnny the Hiker from New Hampshire on Wednesday, August 19, 2015For 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!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dylan from Spokane on Tuesday, August 18, 2015Fairly tricky to setup the first time as mine had no instructions but the light is super bright and pretty comfortable. I recommend this headlamp.
