Good lamp

I had the first one stolen so I bought the same one. I use it for DIY, work, camping, cycling and running. Good autonomy, good power. To improve: -The charging socket is too recessed and many chargers cannot reach it. - Widen the block to flatten it and have less weight away from the head (larger support zone therefore less pain in the long run and also - swinging).


Very good lighting, rechargeable and lightweight battery. The best.

Load and weight problem

I was able to use the headlamp while running but the one turned out to be a little too heavy for this activity because it slipped despite the different adjustments made or squeezed my head too much. I was quite satisfied but recently I can no longer charge it correctly. The charging indicator initially lights up and charging appears to be occurring. It only lights up flashing red for a few moments then goes out. I'm rather disappointed because the previous one (I lost it) was really great

Out of use due to buttons

Great product, good lighting and very good autonomy despite the years, until a false contact appeared in the control buttons: It is now impossible to use it!! Very disappointing therefore

lights up well

Alright !

Too old for sports use! But for DIY, working in dark places or at night, etc... it's perfect; my eyesight requires good brightness and the 300 lumens are welcome. 2 reservations: - don't lose your USB cable supplied with it: I can't connect any others; they return but contact is not made. - the strap does not maintain the tightening setting for long; but hey, I have a big head and, completely relaxed, it still tightens me quite a bit ;-)
