That used to be the Apex. I used one for years (the older 200 lumen model) and have been the cause of my girlfriend and several friends getting them as well after joining me on one too many after dark adventures.
Then my light started turning off randomly. I eventually figured out it caused when the wire leading into the battery was jiggled which obviously happens a lot while you’re using it.
I tried to contact Princeton Tec support and they were less than ideal to deal with. Contacting them to get an RMA took quite a while as emails were ignored and phone calls went to voicemail and were never returned until I’d tried over a series of weeks. I ended up (unwisely) buying a second Apex because the replacement was taking so long and I had to have something. They eventually got me a replacement and you’d think I’d be set for a while.
Unfortunately both of the new lamps have had significant issues. One has the same issue with turning off while the other has an issue with the button that controls the brightness not working consistently. So at best I have a lamp I can turn on full power either on spotlight or spread and *may* not randomly fail on me when I really need it.
Needless to say I don’t recommend these to anyone anymore and I’m really frustrated with Princeton Tec. I’m dreading dealing with the RMA process again and currently looking around for an equivalent light that meets my needs.
I've used the Black Diamond Icon which is has proven to be more reliable but the spotlight beam isn't focused enough for me.
I have the Vizz, the older Surge (scuba light), the 4mode (1m H2O) and the apex (soon to be two of them). All brilliant in their design (each distinct) and functional over decades of continuous use with stellar customer service that repairs or replaces gleefully any broken lamp anytime... for any reason. Wow... what a company. Wow... what great lamps.
No joke, this is a proper headlight that drowns all others out.
There are four brightness settings, and the brightest one compares quite favorably to a good-quality four-cell flashlight. The least bright setting plenty good enough for walking on a dark trail on a moonless night, and will give (I'm guessing, now) about 20 hours on four AA batteries.
When you are in a low voltage situation, the light flashes four times to let you know, but you don't have to put in new batteries when the voltage drops below the regulated level. Instead, you can just use the light until it gets dimmer than you are comfortable with. Doing this will more than double your battery life, at the expense of brightness, of course.
This is an expensive light, but it probably the best one out there. You can experiment with a lot of cheap ones, or save money by buying the best in the first place.
