Look­ing more like a minia­ture cam­era strapped to the front of your head than a torch, Laser’s model uses a 3W Cree LED bulb, which pro­vides 2-5 hours of il­lu­mi­na­tion from a lithium-ion battery that takes roughly three hours to recharge. There are two set­tings for il­lu­mi­na­tion and a strobe light that may be use­ful for cy­clists. The lens on the front can be twisted both clock­wise and an­ti­clock­wise to al­ter the an­gle (zoom) of the light. The en­tire head­torch can be tilted down to 90°, mak­ing it eas­ier to il­lu­mi­nate ob­jects be­low your body and work on some­thing up close.

The rub­ber on/off switch on the top of the head­torch is quite fid­dly to op­er­ate when wear­ing gloves, and we found the light started to dim af­ter 1.5 hours, how­ever the price is re­mark­ably low for a com­pact recharge­able head­torch.
