5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value Headtorch
Lets say from the beginning that this headtorch is not a Petzl Tikka BUT you are paying nothing like Petzl prices. Its a good solid feeling little torch that works well and is great value for money. (Even comes with batteries)Like others here I bought it mainly as an aid in astromical work and for that its fine. You get one central red LED and two white LEDs, one either...

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor red light beam
Item arrived promptly and well packaged. Build quality is not startling but what can you expect for the price? Don't buy this if you need a good red beam for astronomy for example. The beam is rather too low an intensity and the illumination is far from uniform.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value Headtorch, 3 Mar 2013

This review is from: Red LED & White L.E.D. Multiposition Adjustable HEADTORCH Compact & Lightweight Bright Head Torch with Red & White Lights Ideal for Astronomy & Camping. (Electronics)
Lets say from the beginning that this headtorch is not a Petzl Tikka BUT you are paying nothing like Petzl prices. Its a good solid feeling little torch that works well and is great value for money. (Even comes with batteries)Like others here I bought it mainly as an aid in astromical work and for that its fine. You get one central red LED and two white LEDs, one either side the red and is certainly bright enough to read a star atlas with, without being too bright.The switch is good in that one way is red light and the other way is white. You do not have to go through white to get to red which is useful in preserving night vision.
Packaging and delivery were spot on - impressed all round.

5.0 out of 5 stars well worth it, 12 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Red LED & White L.E.D. Multiposition Adjustable HEADTORCH Compact & Lightweight Bright Head Torch with Red & White Lights Ideal for Astronomy & Camping. (Electronics)
for the price, for astronomy viewing, compared to dedicated red lights, this is a hands free useful tool; on/off switch a bit fiddly with gloves on, but would recommend this - a bargain!

Bought for the red LED to use in astronomy. The lamp head is hinged, the light is bright and the plastic body has a pleasant matte finish. The head pad and strap are very comfortable. Comes with 3 AAA batteries, - the instructions state that you shouldn't use rechargeables, but I've tried a set and they appear to work ok.

As other here I bought to use in astronomy and does exactly what I need, solid item but light weight, comes supplied with batteries, the switch can be a little fiddly with gloves but that is a minor niggle - for the price can't go wrong - highly recommended.

This very useful LED head torch has both red and white options and moreover is very attractively priced. Particularly useful if when walking at night you wish to alert either following or oncoming traffic to your presence. Delivered promptly and well packaged..

5.0 out of 5 stars No more loss of night vision ;-), 14 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Red LED & White L.E.D. Multiposition Adjustable HEADTORCH Compact & Lightweight Bright Head Torch with Red & White Lights Ideal for Astronomy & Camping. (Electronics)
I needed a torch for reading my star charts without losing my night vision.

Many of the 'red' torches can be up to 20 so this looked a good price, but did it do the job ?

You have to fit the 3 AAA batteries supplied and the head band yourself. Fitting the batteries was a slight problem as the clip was a little stiff to open but better it being too loose and the batteries falling out in the dark ! The strap too was a little fiddly to fit but the headlamp was soon ready for use.

The lamp itself has three LED's ( light emitting diodes ) one red for night vision and two to act as a standard hands free headlamp. Once you have your night vision after about 10 minuets one LED is just about right and I was able to read the charts.

The lamp itself can be angled downwards via hinge on the base. It also has a rubber pad to cushion the lamp whilst resting on your forehead

For les than 5 delivered it's great value and it in my opinion works just as well as one of the specialist astronomy torches AND it's hands free.

The seller UK Hobby Store also sell other astronomy tools and scopes etc so will have a look after Christmas, if I have any money left, and take a look at their store
