    Black Diamond ReVolt Headlamp is rated 3.88 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good light, with room for improvement The light itself is decent, and I won't go into what everyone else has already described. However, I have to say that the lack of memory for certain light settings (dim setting and spot/flood) has been frustrating for me. Frequently I been surprised by a bright spot light when last I used it was turned off in the flood setting. This has happened on more occasions than I cared to count. However, the light does have a memory for the red light setting as its saving grace. Also, the difference in battery life and light performance is quite drastic between using the included rechargeable batteries and the regular alkaline batteries. While I appreciate BD openly publishing the figures, it still leaves me hesitant to use the rechargeable. Oh the guilt... Lastly, note in the instruction that there is no o-ring to waterproof the battery housing in inclement weather. You do need to dry out the inside after use in wet conditions. Here's to wishing the next iteration will be better in these regards. It is otherwise a decent light all in all, and replaces my Peztl which has accompanied me through military deployment and camping trips the past half a decade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headlamp!! A+ I have had the headlamp for a couple of backpacking trips and it works perfect for my needs. The adjustable brightness is a huge advantage over the headlamps I have had in the past. It is a little heavier, but the brightness is worth it. The USB charging works perfect and charges from my solar charger and in my car. I also like the ability to use regular AAA batteries when I need to. I really like this lamp.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shares phone charger! I just returned from a trip to Death Valley via motorcycle. The Revolt comes with the required rechargable AAA and standard Alkalines! The charge cable is a standard Micro USB found on many phones, like Androids, so I didn't need an extra cable! I just took turns charging the light and my phone. The battery life was good enough that for the 1-2 hrs a night that it was necessary, it didnt need to be charged too often. I charged it every couple of days, but even that didn't seem necessary! My only disappointment is that it does not remember the dimmed setting when turning it back on, not too big of a deal.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery does not maintain power We 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This flexible headlamp works great This headlamp has similar beam options as other headlamps such as the Spot, with smaller wide beam LEDs on the sides of the bright narrow spot lens in the center. You can easily switch between the wide or narrow beams by pressing the button multiple times and if you want to keep the longest run times, then just keep the beams dimmed down from their highest levels. The fact that you can switch from the rechargeable batteries to standard types, means that you can keep it running with spare batteries when you are away from a charging source for too long. The USB rechargeable feature is really handy though, since it easily connects to my car or a solar charger. The bulkiness mentioned by the other reviewer isn't an issue and all headlamps that include the batters in the headlamp itself, as opposed to in a separate box in the back of the strap, will be a bit bulkier, but that's never been an issue and it's great to keep the back of the strap clean so it is more comfortable to wear with your head on a pillow.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not awesome This is a great headlamp with many lighting options. It is easy to switch between light options once you learn the button sequences. With the rechargable batteries fully charged, the light doesn't seem to stay bright as long as one would expect. (maybe 25 minutes before the light output begins to diminish) I have not tried it with regular batteries but they would need to be available to have this headlamp working on extended trips. All and all a great light for jogging the neighborhood or a one night camping trip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome headlamp & Awesome REI exchange As I was preparing to go on a backpack elk hunt. My trusty headlamp purchased by my wife 1/12 ago for a Christmas gift to me refused to screw shut. Aghh the screw was stripped. As I was leaving the next day I had to have a replacement. I got to the store moments before it closed. I was overjoyed when the REI associate told me that my wife had purchased it at REI and I could find a replacement for only the balance from the price of my last headlamp (minus my dividend). WOW why buy any piece of outdoor gear anywhere else. I decided to upgrade to the the REVOLT and wow was I glad. My hunting partner couldn't believe how bright my lamp was. He actually turned is off and just walked behind me. It was completely dark with no moon. We we hiking along a ridge so we had to be very careful not to misstep It would mean a long fall in a long scree filled shoot. On the same hunt after we had arrowed our bull we were packing out in the dark again this was no problem with the illumination from the light. Thanks REI for your return policy and for carrying such great products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Light in the Darkness I first bought this light for a 208 relay foot race. I liked that it came with rechargable batteries, that I have yet to use. According booklet it produces lower lumens. When it is in spot mode, it produces a strong 110 lumen beam that does a great job of illuminating the trail on my early morning trail runs. As light conditions improve I often switch to the small, duller duel LEDs which diffuse a dimmer, broader light. I find that I have to change the batters ever couple of days, but not complaints there. I definitely would recommend this light to another trail runner.
