Works great. The description: "Multiple operational modes: 6 white LED2 red LED1 white LED" is inaccurate, there is no "red" mode, all the LEDs are white. It lights 1 LED, 3 LEDs or 9 LEDs or flashes all 9. It's plenty bright. The battery insertion is in a caddy and care must be taken to insert the 3 "AAA" batteries with correct polarity. It didn't work the first time I put batteries in it but when I removed the batteries and hunted for the battery diagram in each chamber of the caddy and inserted again it worked and has worked fine since. Total weight with the 3 AAA batteries is 3.6 ozs. My wife has had the similar headlamp but with 10 LEDs for a number of years and continues to work as new. I'm happy with the purchase.

As other reviewers have mentioned- the product does not come with instructions, and in fact I never got mine to turn on at all. It also has a horrible petroleum smell about it, and there was even some liquid oozing from the plastic around the lamp that smells like fuel oil. Makes me wonder if it wasn't involved in a spill of some kind aboard a container ship, perhaps? Your guess is as good as mine. DO NOT BUY is my advice. I wish I had read these reviews before I was sitting here in my kitchen trying to get this thing to work. Would have saved me some time and money.

I was really excited about this light as my dogs chewed up my previous one. The directions for the way the batteries are inserted are non existent and the light doesn't stay on, you have to play with the knob and take the batteries off and on- I would have returned it but I threw away all the packaging... Not impressed at all, save your money and buy a different one!

I primarily purchased this b/c of the 9 LED lights and that it is weather and shock resistant. It is a bit challenging figuring out how to insert the batteries since no directions are included. There are buttons on each side of the silver ridged knobs that will turn the light on and change the intesity however as another reviewer stated, the lights even at the 9 LED mode are NOT very bright at all. I also bought a 7 light LED headlamp from another manufacturer and it is much brighter, feels more solid and actually came with instructions. Also this headlamp has a horrible diseal/petroluem smell to the strap which prohibts me from putting it anywhere near my face. I am leaving it out in hopes that the odor will disapate otherwise it will be useless for me.

Kristen's review has it exactly right. You have to disassemble the unit whenever you want to turn the light on or off. The headstrap is also very poorly designed and barely stays on. I was hoping to use this for some minor electronics work but the light is far too weak. If a bicyclist used this, I can't imagine it would provide any more illumination than a reflective sticker. I'm usually not moved to review this kind of stuff, but the chance to comment on the worst piece of electronics I've ever purchased was too difficult to resist.

WHEN I FIRST PUT IT ON I STARTED TO SMELL GAS BUT DID NOT REALIZE IT WAS THE HEADLIGHT I KEPT LOOKING AROUND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHERE THE SMELL WAS COMING FROM. ITS VERY DIFFICULT TO WHERE FOR MORE THAN A FEW MINUTES. ALSO VERY HARD TO OPEN THE BATTERY COVER TO REPLACE BATTERY. LIGHT WORKS GOOD AND IS REASONABLY BRIGHT.

I bought this item through another website and was hoping to give it to my young grandson but the stench emanating from it smelled like toxic waste. If I can get the smell out of it (currently hung in an unheated room to air out), it may be useful for needlework but I'd definitely worry if I'd given it to a child.

Very cheaply made. Not bright at all. One of the LEDs burned out after about 3 hours of use. I would have returned it but it is not worth it.

Bought this as a back-up headlamp and it's good enough for that purpose. Cheaply made overseas as expected and just OK illumination.
