    FYI, looks like both units take AAA batteries.

    The photos on the listing are hilarious. I love to use the whipper snipper in the dark…

      Agree. Why install a coat rack in the dark?

        He broke into a house and wanted to install the coat rack before you took all ya stuff. Classic pun.

    not enough lumens, i need closer to 1000

    3x AAA is bad - it means the cheapest, nastiest circuit design.

    And those specs are fishy. 350 lumen x 4 hrs!?

    Those batteries will only do around 200mA for that time, according to the spec sheet: https://data.energizer.com/pdfs/e92.pdf

    So less than 1W, but 350 lumen?! Must be Chinese lumens. Or the instantaneous brightness in strobe mode?

      Any tips for a good value headlight?

        The $5 Arlec is OK, but broad beam, not focussed.

        I suppose this is good value if you use rechargables. <100 lumens is enough for camping, fishing. I have one similar.
        I just hate the dishonesty in the torch business.

        Generally, small torches that use 2xAA instead of 3xAAA are brighter, run longer and more convenient.
        If you actually want closer to a 350 lumen headlamp, get one that runs off 18650 Li-Ion cells, with a genuine Cree XR-E or better.

        You can find them cheap on ebay etc, but quality varies, and the lumen claims are even more wildly exaggerated.

        The $5 Arlec one is pretty good value.
        Still the usual 3x AAA annoying 3 function design, but it's cheap.

        Something that looks like these:

        https://www.amazon.com.au/Headlamp-Rechargeable-Waterproof-H...
        https://amazon.com.au/Headlamp-Headlight-Rechargeable-Batter...

        I can't vouch for the quality, but they will be decent brightness. Check the reviews. $20 delivered with prime for a full kit is great!
        The included batteries are probably low capacity.

      LOL, looks like its straight out of Tom Clancys Splinter Cell

    This would be good for night running

      I got this one and use it for running. Have to hold it in my hand though… The lack of a strap over the head makes it constantly slide down when running. Just FYI

      •  

        I don't have this one but is the same thing however I don't experience the sliding. Even when you adjust it?

      •  

        if you have a cap with one of those velcro adjusters at the back, try wearing it backwards and position the strap over that velcro bit. helps keep it in place.

    $18.05 for Power Pass Holders.

    Very good for EDC.

    i've got the 200 lumen version (blue strap) which is $4 less. used it heaps when washing the car in the afternoon turns to evening, also pruning the garden at night during summer. i put rechargeable batteries in this of course. i've had it for a few years now so the switch is getting a little glitchy but light output still good for the price i paid.
