Great night activities light - starts, stays red

Reviewed by CaveSAR from nr Ithaca, NY on Wednesday, March 15, 2017
I'm glad I got this headlamp - it starts, stays with the red LED, low then cycles to high. You have to hold down the switch for a couple of seconds to switch to white LED, low then cycles to high. Turn it off and red LED is again the default. The yellow body makes it easier to see in your pack or if you drop it. I am getting several more - camera bag for night photography, my EMS bag, my ski patrol and SAR packs. Even for the computer bag - when you are using a projector and the room lights are low.
Read the directions about changing batteries! To get the red LED to come on first - you have to discharge the capacitor by removing the old batteries then holding down the power switch for several seconds.
Warts: Looks like the seam for the two halves of the body might not be sealed very well. So put some super glue or PLASTI DIP on the seams. I have had the battery door clip crack on other Tec models - I then wrap them with duct tape. So if you are going to be using this light a lot, changing batteries on a regular basis, you might want a different headlamp. The rotation is stiff - one needs two hands, one to hold, one to rotate, even on your head. Since I hang them around my neck, pull them down over my head, this isn't an issue.
