I have used this headlamp quite a bit now. I love how bright it is, which is basically a car headlamp on your head. Night turns to day when using this thing! Another neat feature is that it is able to focus to the point where you can see the LED array inside the headlamp, which is extremely bright. The reason I am giving this headlamp 3 out of 5 stars is simply for battery life. I generally use Energizer lithium ultimate AAA batteries in this thing, and they last around 8 hrs. After 8 hrs the amount of light given off by this thing diminishes rapidly until it basically is just glowing. I know that 300 lumens is really bright, but most of the time I have been using it at the lower setting. On my last trip I knew I would be doing a fair amount of night hiking in the early morning hours, so I only used it on the low setting. After one night and one morning, I had to replace the lithium batteries due to it not producing enough light! I love the high output, but this headlamp is seriously inefficient if Energizer lithium ultimates are only lasting around 8hrs on the low setting... I think this headlamp will be used primarily for car camping, as I can't afford the cost of batteries for this thing if I am going to be hiking around in the dark.

The headlamp i received is not the one pictured, it has a different headband, with a top head strap, and the battery box is a little different than the one shown. it is not super comfortable, as the battery box is ridged, so you can tell when you are wearing it, but that's not really a big deal. It is not even close to being 300 lumens as advertised. I have 3 other lights that claim to be 300 Lumen, and they are all relatively close in brightness, but this one is clearly lagging behind the others. I even tested with a new set of batteries, and still not as bright, I would say this is only about half as bright on a full charge. OH well, for $9.00, is still not at bad deal. It will work for now, and when it craps out I will look for another.

This headlamp is only 150 lumens according to the box. I compared it with my Fenix PD20 (I think that's the model number) which is 180 lumens and it looks very slightly dimmer. It also is a cooler white than the PD20. The light doesn't seem that bad but I feel bamboozled that it only has half the lumen rating in the description.

These are very comfortable. The light is bright. The zoom feature is very useful. I have used many times and the batteries are still good.

All I can say is this is a great headlight for what I purchased it for - the light is very bright and yet the whole thing is very compact. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a utility headlight.

Shipping took forever. When the product finally arrived, the quality was horrible. The lens was loose and would not stay where you set it and instead end up in wide mode or narrow depending on the angle of your head. After about 2 hours of use it also stopped staying in position as far as the angle it was tilted down at and would just point at the ground. The brightness level is about the only good thing about this but it is utterly useless since neither the position nor the wideness can be set due to poor workmanship.

Light works very well. Battery life is OK. The adjustable hinge is weak and several have broken with in the first week or so of use.

Very bright - brighter than my 150 lumen 3D mag-lite by a lot. I'd say 250-300 easily.

A couple issues though -
1) The adjustment for the angle has a piece that broke off and a spring exposed inside. I don't know if it was a defect or happened after I got it.
2) This thing eats batteries like crazy. Like rechargeables in 2-4 hours on low and alkaline in 3-5 hours. But at 5W and with a set of 4.5V batteries holding about 2.5Ah each, you're only looking at a battery capacity of about 10-11Wh. So you should expect 2-3 hours on high. Not sure what blinking or low will use.

If you were to hook this to like a set of D batteries or some lead-acid battery that you carry around in a backpack, this would be great.
