Product Description

A compact Kid's headlamp with plenty of light and features for any young adventurer

Amazon.com

Teach your child the joys of night exploring with the Wiz Headlamp from Black Diamond. It's compact enough to fit a child's head and CPSIA certified with a child-safe screw closure and breakaway elastic safety strap. The Wiz is a simple headlamp, with an easy on/off switch and dimming capability to handle brightness levels. Because Black Diamond knows a few kids, the company installed an automatic shut-off detector that powers the headlamp down after two hours if it gets left lying around with the power on. You know, just in case.

The Wiz is powered by two AAA batteries and two SinglePower LEDs. It's also protected against splashing or sprayed water from any angle. Black Diamond thought of everything in this kid's headlamp.

I got this for my daughter to be used for camping. Feels cheap but it worked. We've had it for less than 6 months (only used a handful of times as it is only a camping implement). The controller seems faulty as it doesn't always turn on now and sometimes doesn't stay on. It is unreliable. I don't think that it will last much longer. I have a lot of Black Diamond equipment and had trusted it's quality but this makes me question the quality of their products now. I will have to look elsewhere for a headlight, that's for sure.

*update: I wrote to Black Diamond since my product should be under warranty. They responded right away and sent me a new one overnight! The jury is still out on their headlights, but the company is first rate.

This headlight was very hard to open. There is a tiny, deeply recessed Phillips screw that requires a jewelers' screwdriver. Then, the battery compartment would not open until I discovered a flange that needs to depressed. From the inside, I could see that the front and back parts of the battery compartment are held together by two thin metallic strips that I sincerely hope are not as flimsy as they look. Finally, when the batteries were installed, it was difficult to align and attach the front and back pieces of the battery compartment to re-close the flashlight.

Other than that, the headlamp is fine. It's an especially attractive headlamp and headband with a nice bright light.

So I don't have a super small head and this definitely fits with room to spare. It isn't a super serious technical headlamp, but definitely works for all kinds of purposes mostly being seen at night. It is comfortable and the design is fun. Although it is completely unnecessary I kind of want the pink one as well.

Color: Lime Light Verified Purchase
We have 5 black diamond adult headlamps that we adore. But they are either 90 or 100 lumens. When you need super bright light (which is most of the time you wear a headlamp) they are perfection. However, when running my neighborhood running path at night they are a little heavy and the spot tends to blind on coming runners. The Wiz is the perfect alternative for this scenario. It gives enough light to run safe yet it isn't as heavy and bright as my others. It also has a flashing feature that is great for kids, but I use it on my dog while we are hiking or running at night.

Update 4/25/14- I bought two of the Wiz lights and both have the same habit of the casing that houses the light and battery just falling apart. It's surprising to me because black diamond is such a great brand. But in the end this version of the headlamp needs to go back to the drawing board.

My girls loved this product, but it really needs a third strap to remain on their head. The strap, in order to remain in place, has to be too tight to really be comfortable.

I find that the Black Diamond brand of headlamps work really well for us. They are generally high quality, easy to use and don't eat up batteries at an alarming rate. We got 2 of these for our daughters' first camping trip and they loved them, of course. But, these are made for kids and per regulation, the battery casing must be closed with a screw so that kids can't get to the batteries - just like toys. Pain in the a**. It comes with a mini screwdriver and vague instructions but we're smart; we figured it out. But, on day 3 of the camping trip, when these things have been turned on day and night and they need their batteries replaced, good luck finding that mini screwdriver that you swore you packed in the dry box. Better bet, buy an adult one and tell your kids not to eat the batteries :)

Black Diamond. Always a good quality purchase. Love the green/blue. Couldn't find my other one and had to have a replacement. Handy for a number of activities, not just night hiking. But, walking the dog, household repairs, cleaning the dogs ears, etc. But, my eyes have an easier time seeing with a bright light on the focus of my attention. Make sure to peruse the directions, because holding the button or pressing twice creates different light settings and back when i was a newb hiker, I was ignorant of these options.

While better in design and function than some of the "big box store" inventory, this product just doesn't have what it takes. I bought mine for my daughter for camping and girl scouts. Good lighting and she liked the pink color, but the plastic tilt-bar broke after 6 months. I've since replaced with a petzl tikkina and have been very pleased. In fact bought another tikkina for my wife. Spend the extra $5. You'll thank me later!
