To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Firstly I bought this light for work, and it straps perfectly to my hard hat no problems. I might secure it with some zip ties or clips but who knows. This thing is one of those big things that comes in small packages. It's super lightweight, but feels sturdy, like it can take a few hard licks before failing. The four main brightness settings are all super useful, but my biggest gripe is the battery life. On max power (light bar) the literature says it'll die in 2 1/2 hours, which means 2 hours (most likely) The other gripe I have but isn't really a big one, is why does this have a strobe setting?? Makes no sense to me. The only thing I can think of is for a survival rescue situation in which case you could just wave ur hand over the beam so I dunno. The good news is that the strobe isn't one of the sequential settings, which is why it's not a bigger gripe of mine. It's off on its own as a "hold down till you have a seizure" setting. Since I'll need more than two hours in a go, I'll likely overcome its poor battery life by buying a second one to charge while the first runs down, since it's built quality and price makes that totally worth while
This light is great! I own multiple different headlights. But this one if the best! It is very light and bright! I use it when I go fishing or coming back from hike - this light light up everything around me. I ran with it late afternoon and this thing rocks! I enjoy my running experience a lot better now when im able to see my feet and whole sidewalk around me. I never ran out of battery yet - I love the fact I dont need to buy anymore AAA batteries for my headlight. aaaand it has this awesome feature of wave induction - this helps a lot when I fish at night and I dont really want to touch anything with my fishy hands! aaand it's reasonably priced! I would defiantly buy it again!
I’m a pipefitter/controls tech working in ceilings, boiler rooms, and dark corners of buildings. Saw a co-worker with this light and ordered it that day. Ive been using it a lot and it works amazing. The best part is that its light weight and low profile. I can leave it on my hat all day and not even notice its there. Battery life is good on the medium setting and throws enough light to get the job done. I only use the high setting if I have to because of the 2.5 hour runtime it gets. The spotlight is really useful also and works great. I’m actually going to buy another one so I can always have one fully charged.
Update: just received my 2nd light. Used both all day today in a drop ceiling installing valves. It is perfect having one charged up and ready to go. Definitely get two of your planning on using them through a full day of work. They do seem to come unglued over time. It’s nothing a little super glue can’t fix. They are amazing.
I REALLY LOVE THIS LIGHT! But unfortunately, this product has a major design flaw...as others have stated in their reviews, the light strip comes unglued very easily from the head band almost immediately. Also, the light does get uncomfortably hot on your forehead...But Again, even with all that, I STILL REALLY LOVE THIS LIGHT because it is very bright, and very light weight... I also love the spotlight function as well. but I will have to return the product due to the excessive forehead heat, and the faulty glue around the light strip. Please correct these issues and I would gladly re-purchase this item a heart beat.
To start with.... holy cow this thing is bright! It comes with a warning "avoid direct shining in eyes of people and animals as it could cause instantaneous blindness" , I am not joking. It is bright, it has a band of "induction LED" lights, which I don't know what the induction part is, but it is really bright and has 3 intensity settings. The head band is also equipped with a side flashlight style light that also works well. It charges from a USBC plug so no wasting batteries, you can recharge which is nice. The down side... the LED band heats up if you use it for more than just a few minutes and that is uncomfortable as it is on you forehead. SO far I love it, we will see how long the battery lasts, but man it is almost too bright to use if you are camping, it def leaves tracers in your vision after using in darkens.,. and of course, you don't want to blind your friends and animals. Is great for night cycling as it lights up everything and creates undeniable visibility to cars.
I use this at work. The buttons are hard to find with gloves on but once you get used to it they aren't bad. The light is great brighter than I thought it would be. The strap keeps loosening up, but can be pinned in place. Great headlamp!
I really love this light. It is light weight and comfortable. The COB LED strip is very bright and shines evenly over a broad area. The option to turn it on/off with a wave of the hand is really handy. An unadvertised feature is that once it is on for about 10 seconds, pressing the button once turns it off. With most light you have to toggle through the numerous brightness settings before you get to "off".
Some people are complaining about the LED strip coming unglued and the head band getting too hot. I'm not sure why but I think this thing might have been redesigned. The perimeter of the LED strip is captured by the opening in the headband (which I believe is silicone rubber). I can't see how it could detach. The band gets slightly warm at the brightest setting, but no way would I describe it as hot.
My only small complaint is that the spotlight LED mounted on the side reflects off the inside of my eyeglasses. But I don't think I will use it since the strip LED is more than adequate.
Pros: Flexible Long battery Rechargeable Light strip
Cons: -The rubber seal for the light strip started peeling almost immediately. -I don’t really know what but buttons do beyond turning it on. -finding the buttons with my fingers is still a challenge after hours of use.
I work on vehicles, in their dark and tight spaces. The area covered by the light strip is the best I’ve ever had in lighting solutions.
I also took this on a hike in the mountains. And relied heavily on it to set up camp, find fire wood, hang hammocks, cook, etc. battery lasted the entire duration.
