Multi-Setting LED Headlamp
In search of an extra-affordable headlamp, we searched online with a price threshold of $10 — this is what we found. Despite a total of 20 LEDs, it only manages to produce a beam that’s acceptably bright at close range. For hiking or other mobile activities, output is lacking. The flashing red LEDs are useful only as a signal beacon. This is a clear case of getting exactly what you paid for, and we’d only recommend it if the other alternative is stumbling around in total darkness.
The box proudly says it has a star ting time of less than 500 milliseconds — a strong selling point for the extra-impatient headlamp buyer.
White light output is dismal, and the red light can’t be set to constant on
Bulky plastic housing looks and feels cheap
Mount can point in only four directions: straight ahead, 45 degrees, your feet, or the top of your nose
