Excellent service and great company.

My wife thinks I'm a nut and she's probably right but I'm still using it.

Like the other guy, for reading in bed.

I have a couple of good Princeton lights I've used for caving but this one I bought for reading in bed. No kidding. The book lights stink and always get in the way but this small headlamp fits comfortably on my head, tilts in any direction and has three brightness levels. (I use the lowest one to read). The light is smooth and doesn't put all those shadows on the page like incandescent bulbs do. My wife thinks I'm a nut and she's probably right but I'm still using it.

If you're used to handheld flashlights, you don't know what you're missing. I don't know about you, but most of the time I need a flashlight, I also need my hands. I found myself trying to do the task with one hand, simply because the other hand holds the light. That, or trying to put the light in my mouth. Not any more!

This baby has 5 modes. I scroll through them by pressing the single button again and again. If you don't press the button for a few seconds, the next press of the button turns the light off.

1st press - Turns light to high intensity
2nd press - Goes to medium intensity
3rd press - Goes to low intensity
4th press - goes to fast strobe, about 2 per second
5th press - goes to slow strobe, about 1 per 2 seconds
6th press- turns it off.

I use it 90% of the time on low intesity. Like the other guy, for reading in bed. Sometimes, I use it for working on cars or motorcycles. Other times, on my forehead when I'm biking at night. (to warn other drivers, it doesn't have enough throw for a bike headlight) Last week, I brought it with my hunting, in case I needed to dress a deer in the dark or do a lot of blood tracking.

The batteries are a little tricky to change the first time, but after that, no biggie.

I like that it doesn't have the top strap; that makes them uncomfortable. The separate battery compartment is super fruity; I'm glad this one doesn't have it.

I also have a Streamlight luxeon LED headlamp. AAAs are not strong enough for Luxeon LEDs. They don't last long at all. Maybe if I had that separate fruity power pack, hehehe.

This is the one to get. I looked at all of them. There are smaller ones with fewer LEDs or fewer modes, but they don't have the run time of this one. The bigger ones get clunky in a hurry with the extra strap and separate power packs. This one is just right. If I could only have one LED flashlight, this one be it.

PROS: long battery life, excellent illumination, superb customer service
CONS: batteries difficult to change, only water resistant

I have had this Princeton Tec Aurora light (in headband form) since 2003. It served me extremely well in ordinary use -- hiking, camping, fishing -- until July 2009, when it inexplicably would not turn off. Despite fiddling with the battery connections, the problem persisted. (Opening the battery cover, by the way, required sturdy use of a coin to pry it off and a brief visit to the internet for advice, as this was not an intuitive process.)

When I contacted Princeton Tec, they responded to me promptly, sent me an RMA#, and within a few weeks after sending them the misbehaving unit, they sent me back a new Aurora. (Now THAT'S standing behind your product!) I was pleasantly surprised. The six years of service for the original device was impressive enough, but their warranty support proved to be even better.

I highly recommend this Aurora light and the customer service of Princeton Tec.

I have bought 4 of these and plan to buy more. I've had them for a few years now and I was afraid they stopped making them. Perfect for camping and many other uses. I have not had to replace the batteries yet. Takes 3 AAA. The case feels strong and can be popped open with a quarter. It has a hinge and tilts down to aim. All the ones I have still work and I've given the others as gifts. It's a simple design and seems to have a bit of water proofing as well. There is a rubber ring when you open it to put in the batteries. I think I bought my originals at REI for $25.
