Verified Buyer Reviewed by Big Dan T from Georgia on Sunday, July 27, 2014So far, I have used this on a electrical repair in a dark confined area. I find it works as advertised. Plenty of light for a small dark area.
The price was decent, ditto on the performance so far. I doubt it will illuminate anything at 240' as noted by the manufacturers specs.
Battery availability is not an issue around here.
Reviewed by WWIINut from West Chester, OH on Wednesday, June 18, 2014I have used headlamps on and off for years but they have always been the cheaper ones using 3X AAA batteries. They always had dead batteries because the button was accidently turned on and then you have to replace three batteries. I finally gave up.
I thought I would try using a headlamp again and bought the Remix Pro. I just used it for three days/nights at cub scout camp and I cant be happier! The low setting is perfect for close work and the brighter single LED is super bright for seeing far distance while walking.
The on/off switch is nearly impossible to accidently turn on and it is great to be able to hold the button down to cycle through the levels/LED options.
If you are worried about the cost of the CR123 batteries, check out Ebay or do a search and you will find countless on-line stores selling them for $2 each or cheaper if you by in bulk.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lynn from Chico, CA on Tuesday, May 27, 2014I bought this headlamp for my husband and he used it on our recent backpacking trip in the Trinity Alps....not only is it smaller and lighter than my more expensive Petzel light it is much brighter. We haven't used it enough to comment on battery life and I'm not sure how hard the batteries will be to find since they are specialized but so far so good.

Reviewed by Big Johnson from Colorado on Tuesday, January 21, 2014I've purchased two of these excellent headlamps now, one for my ski patrol vest and one for my xc ski/hiking rucksack. Plenty of bright illumination in the high mode for mountain rescue, night xc skiing, and hiking. The batteries seem to last forever in the low and medium settings for around camp and in the huts.
The CR123 batteries are more expensive than AA or AAA batts but work well in the cold.
Question & Answer
Questions about this product? Get answers from community and staff experts.
The headlamp does not have any red LEDs.
“Can this be worn on a cap or does it have to be worn directly around your head. I'm wondering about beam direction while wearing a ball cap.”
The headlamp has a hinged pivoting design for adjustable beam angles, so it is likely that you can wear it over your hat.
“What is the battery life for this CR123 model? The specs in the product description say 40 hours on HIGH but the package says 40 hours on LOW (and only 3.6 hrs on HIGH). This is a big difference. FWIW, AAA version package says 28 hrs on HIGH and 200 hours on LOW.”
The battery life is relative to temp. and the type of battery used. Burn time can vary with the bulbs that are used.
The AAA version has longer battery life than this CR123 version. According to Princeton Tec's web site:||For Remix Pro (with CR123 battery).|MaxBright LED High- 4hrs|MaxBright LED Low- 7hrs|3 wide angle LEDs High - 5hrs|3 wide angle LEDs Low - 40 hrs||For the AAA version|MaxBright LED High- 28 hrs|MaxBright LED Low- 53 hrs|3 wide angle LEDs High - 61 hrs|3 wide angle LEDs Low - 200 hrs||I'd think that the difference in weight 83g vs 66g, wouldn't be worth the difference in life for me.
