Saw these at a local Home Depot here in Canada - 2-pack of 2 white/1 red LED headlamps - for only $5.
For that price, I thought I'd give them a try.
From left to right: 1xAAA Duraloop, CE Tech headlamp, Petzl Tikka XP 2, Petzl Tikka XP, Zebralight SC30.
That last pic shows the feature I was most impressed with - you can angle the head down to suit your needs. The hinge has ridges, so the light stays firmly angled at about 6-7 different possible stops.
Here's a few shots with the LEDs illuminated:
And a lower exposure:
Here's a video showing my handling of the units:
Video was recorded in 720p, but YouTube defaults to 360p. Once the video is running, you can click on the 360p icon in the lower right-hand corner, and select the higher 480p to 720p options, or even run full-screen.
Some random thoughts:
The lights come with actual alkaline batteries. When I saw the Eveready labels, I was thinking they'd be the much lower energy-density cells - carbon-zinc "general purpose" or zinc-chloride "heavy duty". But verifying the model number, those are actual alkalines (i.e. zinc–manganese dioxide). In my quick inpomptu testing, they did about as well as my usual Duracell alkalines.
The headband is basic, but it is adjustable and does have decent elastic properties. There is even a soft pad at the base the headlamp unit, which should ease pressure on your forehead.
As previously mentioned, the front of the unit is angle-adjustable, and you can position the head down to suit your needs. The hinge stops were firm enough that the light stayed firmly angled during my simple head-shake testing.
Output on red is quite reasonable (constant output), and the dual-white output is surprisingly bright (for the price, that is ). The white mode is definitely brighter than a couple of typical coin squeeze lights.
The reported ANSI FL-1 specs on the packaging are reasonable (i.e. 8 lumens, 20hr runtime to 10%, etc). My lightbox reports initial activation of ~11 estimated lumens. And no, I do not plan to do runtimes!
There seems to be a number of possible bundles of these on display at Home Depot right now (i.e. some include multiples of AA or AAA-based multi-5mm handhelds, etc.). Given the apparent quality, I went back to pick up more to hand out as stocking-stuffers this Xmas.
Anyway, that's about it - I don't plan to do any detailed testing, just thought you might find the info useful. Please see the video for more detailed commentary on the lights.
