1.0 out of 5 stars Very bright, comfortable headlamp - great for the car., 5 Jan. 2014
This review is from: AA Car Essentials CREE LED Head Torch 3 W (Automotive)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have a led lenser H7 rechargeable headlamp which I use for dog walking. For daily use I'd prefer a rechargeable headlamp but as an emergency light for the car or occasional DIY a standard battery one is better (less chance of batteries being flat as the rechargeable ones don't keep their charge very long). This head torch is equally bright (VERY bright - don't look directly in to the beam!). The build quality isn't quite as good - feels a bit plasticky. The lens focus isn't as smooth and the hinged lamp flops about a bit. Works well though, but if your going to use it a lot get the H7 which is a similar price on amazon.
***Update*** After about a month of intermittent use the Head Torch is misbehaving. The on switch is temperamental. It switches on fine but after you turn it off, it wont switch on again. I've checked the batteries and changed them with no success. Even took apart the mechanism to see if there was a problem with the switch but there wasn't. Utterly useless as an emergency headlamp if it doesn't work when you need it to. Reducing rating to 1 star.
