Very good deals for both, selling on eBay around $37, BigW for $21(only headlight).
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…
Maybe he's just stealing it
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.
Maybe he’s taking it down?
Good post mate. How did you stumble onto this one?
It was dark and they didn't have a torch
Dining at the wrong hole make you wanna look for a head torch.
not enough lumens, i need closer to 1000
Well…… This is what I got off eBay :P Rechargeable as well! The quoted 100000 lumens may be a stretch, but the lights are definitely BRIGHT
To look into your where-the-sun-don't-shine body part?
nice, but not $80 nice, lol.
Less than $70 with 15% off. It's big enough that you can smack someone with it in an emergency.
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?
As Scotty says, "Ye cannae change laws of physics, Jim."
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:
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.
Just picked up a head torch at Aldi for $4.99 if anyone is looking
