    Black Diamond ReVolt Headlampis rated3.88out of5by25.
    Rated2out of5byfromIt's ok...I got this for my birthday for summer camp last year and it worked great! The only downside is the battery life. I've used both the rechargeable batteries and regular and it guzzles them like crazy. Last night I turned it on to get a midnight snack and the batteries were already out. I hadn't even touched it for about 2 months. As a thesis, don't get this lamp if you're looking for an energy efficient headlamp.

    Rated4out of5byfromRevolt will charge other NiMH cells@Geeks v. Wild, the BD Revolt will charge other (non-BD) NiMH cells. The negative-end charge electrode is on the side, so non-BD cell wrapper needs to be peeled or scraped off about 8mm from the negative end to make contact with the electrode. @MattCro, try using the lock function to prevent light turning on in your pack.

    Rated5out of5byfromBright, powerful lightUsed this while working in the Arctic where a headlamp is always needed during the polar night. The extreme low temperatures sucked the life out of the regular batteries I was using in my first lamp, so I knew I needed something rechargeable and had this one sent over from home. I was using this lamp for 12+ hours a day and recharged every other night or so, just to be safe. The spotlight function is very bright, but I mostly used the more diffused light function (which uses the two small lights on either side as opposed to the one larger bulb in the middle). Loved the adjustable brightness and the battery level indicator especially. It is definitely more bulky than my original Petzl lamp, but overall I was extremely happy I made the switch.

    Rated3out of5byfromNot ImpressedI use a headlamp often, and I didn't want to keep going through batteries, so the Revolt was my first rechargable headlamp. I put in the alkaline batteries (which are included) and took the dog for a night walk. I noticed a yellow spot when using the spot light. Then I dimmed the adjustable spot down low to read at night, and again I noticed a yellow spot on the pages of my book. Not a good light quality. It didn't bother me at longer distances while walking the dog, but it was annoying while reading. Also, the red lights were too dim. After the only evening I used it, I decided I'll be returning it and try a different rechargable lamp. That's the great thing about buying from REI - a great return policy with no hassles.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat Tool to Have!So far, I haven't been able to use this light for any long trips. However, I've had the chance to use it quite frequently around the house and working on projects outside at night. The adjustable beam and locking capability are the features I like the most. I can't speak to battery life yet, but based of the usage so far I would say it is decent.

    Rated3out of5byfromReVolt HeadlampMy only issue I have with this headlamp is that the touch on/off button at the top is too sensitive. When hiking, I have found that it turns itself on in my pack. I now attach it to one of my shoulder straps to avoid it turning on and waisting battery. I would not buy this product again.

    Rated4out of5byfromBright Light!Excellent with the alkaline batteries supplied. Haven't gotten a chance to see what the battery life is with the proprietary batteries supplied by BD. Have heard that the proprietary batteries have a very short life.

    Rated3out of5byfromBattery does not maintain powerWe walk 4 miles nightly which means it gets dark. This battery does not maintain 90 lumens. Friend walks with Black Diamond 90 lumen headlamp on regular batteries which has significantly more power. I bought this for the convenient recharge system unfortunately the power is not as strong as regular non-rechargeable battery. It needs a lithium rechargeable system like most camera systems.
