Style Name: 50 LumensColor: Black
So when it works it's a fine device but every time I come to it the batteries are dead flat. Poor design that has residual load when off.

The battery lockout feature takes this from a 1-star (worse than useless) to 4 stars. Would be 5 if the battery lockout WAS NOT NEEDED IN THE FIRST PLACE.
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.

I've used this headlamp for about two years now, and it's been wonderful.

Pros:
- 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.

Cons:
- 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.

Conclusion:
I bought a second one for the wife. I've absolutely got my money's worth out of this light!

A friend had one that I used during a sailboat delivery, and I was impressed enough by it that I later bought my own.

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.

Good little light. I love the red for reading at night - doesn't keep my wife awake like a white light would, and I drop off sooner as well. The only irritating thing is that after you use it to read, the button doesn't turn it off, but clicks through both bright and less bright white modes. Other Princetons turn off instead of cycling through other settings.

As said by most reviews, though this product world's very well as a light, it is well built and the beam is perfect. However, somewhat incredibly it drains the batteries even when switched off. A fatal design fault in a torch. If you use this on a bike every day, maybe that is not a problem, otherwise you will need to take the batteries out every time you store it. Should have been recalled.

This Princeton headlamp is a great product. I have two of the same one now and I love them. The best feature is the red led which lets you use it in the tent without blinding your tent mates. The white LED is super bright and lasts a long time and the hinge works perfectly to allow you to direct the light to the right place. My only issue with this headlamp and I do not know why this happens, is if you leave the batteries in the unit for any extended period of time it seems to drain them. As a precaution I always take out the batteries before I put it away. Otherwise its a great headlamp.

Overall, I like this headlamp. Light weight with limited battery life using Sanyo Eneloop batteries. Usually only need the low power setting for the white LED. The lock-out switch on the right side is useful to turn off the headlamp when using the red LED so your night vision is not destroyed by cycling through the white LED settings.
