Here's the deal. This is a rugged, bright, light, and otherwise great light for under $20. But the electronics have a fatal flaw where it drains the battery when not in use. My sons use them for scout camping and got into the habit of removing the batteries, or flipping one battery around so that it wouldn't drain, when not in use. That's pretty much what the lockout does. It's a mechanical switch that disconnects the battery, so that the electronics won't drain. So now you have two switches, both need to be "on" to turn it on.
As long as you understand that, you can't beat this light for the price. If you don't understand that, it'll let you down.
- Price, price and price! You can't beat it!
- The physical design is great. The headband fits well, holds light in place during moderate activity, but doesn't squeeze the scalp to make it uncomfortable. Weight is negligible. No over-the-top headband.
- Tilt mechanism is solid; doesn't slip after you set it.
- Controls (one button) are easy enough. click to cycle through red, low-white, high-white, push-and-hold to turn off. No SOS mode, which I consider a plus... who actually uses that?!?
- I used every night around camp during a 2.5 week trip, on one set of AAA batteries, so appears to be very efficient.
- First, I maintained the 5-star rating. This little light has remained my go-to headlamp despite any drawbacks it might have. Can't deny that.
- Batteries will drain completely within 4-8 weeks with no use. This was NOT a problem during during the camping trip. But, as an emergency light, should be stored without batteries to prevent drainage. This is an engineering flaw that Princeton Tech needs to address.
- Separate control for red light would be nice, don't want to wake up others in camp. It's a pain to cycle through white to get to red and vice versa.
I bought a second one for the wife. I've absolutely got my money's worth out of this light!
I have had no difficulties or issues like the previous reviewer with either my light or my friends, so I would credit those not to deficient design, but to the fact that in these days of mass manufacturing there are always bound to be some products which come off the line not at 100%.
Good, very small piece of gear, I have no problem recommending it if you are looking for something like this. If you happen to get one with issues, either the retailer or manufacturer would probably be willing to exchange.
