Firstly, This is very close to a five star rating so I will just be negative about why I deducted one star. The light comes with a separate battery pack which hold 4 'AA' batteries whcih in fairness are required to power this monster light beam. The battery pack is mounted seperately to a waist strap which leaves the cable running from your head to your waist.
This in effect isnt a big issue but just makes it slightly awkward in putting the light on to begin with.
Otherwise, The light from this headlight is more than adequate and makes night time running as easy as daytime running. It is also very visible to oncoming traffic and has the capacity to dazzle oncoming drivers should they leave the car lights on full beam.
Battery life seems to be fairly alright considering the light this emits and the coloured LED when you turn it off lets you know the health of your batteries well before you would get stranded in the dark. Most of my runs at night are usually in to 10K market and I find the light very good for these on country lanes which have no other light sources.
Overall, after about a month of usage, i have had no problems and it comes with my recommendation.
