Energizer 3 LED Headlight
Nice, entry-level unit
Have purchased many over the years for work and home. Nice design. Easy to use. Hinge is a weak spot--it will break if it falls more than a couple of feet. Those with XL heads need to look elsewhere. Had trouble cleaning contacts after I left batteries in it too long without turning it on. Works well used on a cap. Can be worn around neck, upside-down, if you don't want a forehead mark (it will leave a forehead mark). Strap could be a bit longer/larger. Water resistance would raise my rating, as well as a more durable hinge.

Did not last long poor assembly
I received this as Christmas present.
After a few months the main beam failed. On inspection it was found that the micro-switch had become detached. Now only fit for the bin.

When this headlamp is on, it performs exactly as you'd expect it to, but it's not while it's on that is the issue. Because the on/off/selector slide switch is so exposed and easy to move from side-to-side, when the headlamp is stored in a pouch, backpack, bag, pocket, or any other place that you might carry it, it will easily be turned on by a nudge and the battery will die. An easy way to solve this would be to open the battery compartment and turn one of the batteries around, but on this headlamp that is very difficult and requires a coin or some tool to pry the compartment open, which is held in by an L-shaped lug of flimsy plastic, which is twisted and weakened every time you pry the compartment open. It will break after doing this a few times,and then the compartment will not stay closed without tape. Overall it is a very poor design.

Great for outdoors
I'm a Scoutmster for a Boy Scout Troop in California and this headlamp is great. Its been dropped, kicked soaked by water stepped on and it keeps on going. The buttons still work and the light with batteries lasts at least 3-5 months with continuous use on the trail or in the campsite. Its comfortable to wear, not supper heavy or bulky. The elastic band has kept up for 2 years now without streching or fraying due to hard use. I take it wherever I go and has never let me down. You could pay more, but why. It does what its supposed to do. My scouts love them.

Great for everything
This product is very handy to have, great for any hard to see fix-it's around the house. Also kids love to put this on their heads for fun. The price is resonable. Cant go wrong with this product for any use.
