BEST HIGH OUTPUT HEADLAMP
October 11, 2020
I have had this unit for years now and it has made it thru shipyard employment, multiple hurricanes, over the road driving. This is the BEST headlamp ever. I just plug it in when it needs a recharge. I don't recommend using AAA batteries this light uses lots of power. super bright focusable beam. Infinite adjustability.

Low Durability for the Money
February 5, 2018
I originally used this product for hiking, hunting, night cycling, etc; it was not purchased for professional or daily use (thankfully). After only a year of usage and maybe a dozen battery rotations, a tab on the plastic battery box broke off. I now have to keep the battery box closed with a rubber band and try to keep it out of the rain too. This durability shortfall is a similar (if not the exact same) issue as the review written by Cody from North Carolina. I have a few expensive lights ($700+), a dozen or more inexpensive lights (sub-$100), and several more lights that fall in between those two price points. I've come to expect a minimum level of "professional grade quality" from lights that exceed the $100 mark and this one didn't hold up in the durability department. This breakage would be somewhat excusable for a $20 light, but not $100+. I have a drawer full of "retired" lights, several of which cost sub-$20 more than a decade ago, but they are all still fully functional and without defect. This light will probably not be joining them when it is retired. This was my first Ledlenser product and will likely be my last. All that being said, the product has some great features and is quite versatile. If you can get by with only recharging it and never replacing or rotating batteries, it is probably an OK purchase.
ProsBright, well balanced front to rear, lots of functionality, versatile battery/power supply, good run times on Lithium
ConsNot durable, poor cost vs value quotient

This is a well made product with lots of great features. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was I only had a quick start guide for instructions and they were not clear on making the strobe function work. Finally after going online I found written instructions that explained it. Very nice that the strobe rate can be changed with the multi-function wheel on battery pack.
ConsNeed better instructions

Overpriced and cheaply made
November 10, 2015
I'm a diesel mechanic, I purchased this item through my Matco tools distributor. It works great even though it eats through batteries, but my biggest problem is the plastic cover on the battery holster broke after I went to change the batteries out. This happened to several other mechanics in my shop. For the price we paid we expected a durable product. Never again.
ProsEasy to use, very bright, perfect for working on engines.
ConsEats through batteries, plastic cover for batteries is junk.

This is the second one of these head lamps I've purchased. Great for fishing at night. I bought this for the other person fishing with me. Long lasting battery if the intensity of the light is managed.

Very happy Husband!
September 9, 2014
My husband couldn't wait for his order since he was so excited to check on this headlamp, and let me tell you, he couldn't be happier! As soon as the order arrived he checked it, and waited for the night to walk outdoors and tried it. His face was like that a kid with his new toy! Therefore, we have been so happy with most of your products, and I am sure we are going to be ordering more items from you in the near future.
