by fromSwitch needs more thought I have used this headlight for several years and am mostly happy with it. I go through a set of alkaline batteries every 2 days so take extras. The only complaint I have is the switch is too easy to bump as it is jostled around in your pack. I have arrived at my destination several times with dead batteries because the light got switched on 7 miles ago.

by fromGreat light, good battery life I needed a new headlamp for camping and hunting trips. The red light option is great for dark conditions when you don't want to blind yourself or your friends with a bright white beam in your/their eyes. The ability to dim the white light settings is an awesome perk, too. The rechargeable batteries are by far the best I've had in a headlamp, no complaints with them so far (after ~20 recharges, still running strong). There is a newer model coming soon, but this ReVolt is the real deal.

by fromBright 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.

by fromReVolt Headlamp My 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.

by fromSo far the best! There are so many features that you can control the light to your specification. You are in control of the light whatever you want to adjust your settings. This is my favorite product of all products.

by fromMany better lights on the market Made the mistake of falling for the hype of the "Bright, Powerful Beam", problem is, since it isn't power regulated, the extreme brightness is only there when the batteries are brand new. The peak voltage in the batteries only last minutes and from there on the brightness is falling off more and more. The headband is definitely the worst among the four other lights I own, constantly needing to readjust and can't wait to get it off after an hour. Construction & design is not for long term durability, it's made cheaply. Again, among all the lights I own, [Petzl, Princeton Tec, BD], the on/off button is the worst and nearly impossible to find/use with gloves on. I've always loved my Petzl & Princeton Tec headlamps, but figured I'd try something new, taken in by the marketing & myriad bells & whistles. Won't get fooloed again.

by fromNot As Advertised! The promised battery life of 70 hours on Alkaline batteries is a joke. The light output is not regulated, so it starts dimming with 1 hour of use. After 8 to 10 hours the light is so dim that it is not useable in most environments. The packaging makes appear that you 110 lumens for 70 hours. Just not true.
