    Rated5out of5byfromGreat for kids...I was looking for a great "kids" headlamp, and thoroughly like all the Black Diamond lights I have, but the Wiz requires a small screwdriver to be carried everywhere it goes. The Gizmo does not require an eyeglass repair kit to change the batteries and it also has the same 2 hour shut-off feature that the Wiz has. My 3 year old loves this thing.

    Rated5out of5byfromUseful gizmoIn addition to camping and recreational use it's been real handy for everyday stuff like finding things in the dark, checking under the hood, etc. - stuff you would normally need to hold a flashlight for. Now that I've got it I keep finding interesting ways to use it.

    Rated2out of5byfromDon't like the dimmer; reliability issueI've used my Black Diamond Gizmo headlamp on two long backpacking trips (on the Appalachian Trail and Colorado Trail, totaling ~1,500 miles) including several night hikes. It still works (except see the last bullet point below). Even though it is only rated at 35 lumens on bright, I had no trouble walking trails on moonless nights with it. So it is not the worst lamp ever. However, I'm finally getting around to buying a replacement for it because of the following deficiencies: * The Gizmo can be continuously dimmed by holding down the button. That sounds nice, but when would I need such precise control over a headlamp? It is actually more of a bug than a feature because it doesn't remember the level it was last set at and always starts up in the *brightest* setting — almost never what I want. So every time I turn it on I have to hold the button down for several seconds to dim the light to a more reasonable and battery-friendly brightness level. * Besides defaulting to an unreasonable brightness and having no quick way to switch to a lower level, the Gizmo has no red LED option. So if you need to turn the light on momentarily to find something in the dark, you must use the bright white LEDs which consume more power from the battery, disturb people around you, and leave you blind after turning off the light. * Worst of all, while I was on the AT my Gizmo would sometimes refuse to turn on at all! I'm still not sure how to reproduce the problem. It only happened when the battery was low (but still charged enough to produce a bright enough light when it did turn on) and only after the light had been on for a few minutes and then turned off -- after which I (sometimes) had to wait several minutes (hours?) before I could turn it back on. Replacing the batteries fixed the issue. I don't know if it is only a problem with my device, or if it is a flaw in the Gizmo design. So not only would I not recommend the Gizmo to a friend, I wouldn't even feel good about giving mine to a friend and compromising their safety with an unreliable headlamp. I plan to upgrade to a Princeton Tec Fred Headlamp which defaults on to a sensible red light and can quickly change between brightness levels.

    Rated3out of5byfromGood for Casual UseWe bought two of these for our camping trips and casual hikes. They are very light and the light illuminates well. We actually used these for a night hike that was a little over a mile and they worked great. The only real problem we have had is one of them will turn off and not stay on after prolonged use. These are good headlamps for causal use but if you are an avid hiker or camper you will need to look for a more rugged headlamp.

    Rated2out of5byfromDead within a yearCheap, lightweight, but dead within one year of gentle use. I see some corrosion inside the the battery area. I bought two headlamps at the same time, this cheapo, and one that was over twice as much and more lumens. I wanted to compare the two. Spend the extra cash if you want a long lasting reliable unit.
