    Default Brinkmann 3-Pack From Home Depot

    When it comes to lights, Brinkmann has always been one of the budget brands that get it right. This find at the local Home Depot is a good example of that. It's a three-pack of multi-mode headlights for $15.98. The lights are rated according to FL1 standards, which is nice "honest" advertising. This is what you're looking for...




    Output and runtimes for both constant modes. The flashing mode comes on in the high mode, but nothing is listed for its runtime.


    Typical Brinkmann instructions and warranty sheet...


    You get one of each: black, silver, and red headlights. Functionally, they're all the same. The headstraps are all the same as well. The top strap is removable. Quality is the straps are okay, but not great. They do adjust for almost any size head, and they stay where you set them...


    The tilting system consists of small plastic ratchets inside the pivot. They work very well...


    It adjusts from here...


    To here...


    The bush-button switch on the top. It's an electronic switch, and turns the light on in the following sequence: low, high, flashing, off. You have to cycle through all the modes to turn the light off.


    Low uses one 5mm LED and is rated at 7 lumens for 47 hours, 20 minutes...


    High uses all five 5mm LEDs and is rated at 48 lumens for 8 hours, 50 minutes...


    The battery door screws off with 1/4 turn...


    The battery door doesn't have a spring on it, so like most other Brinkmann headlights, there's another way of doing it...


    The carrier uses two springs in its positive end...


    ...to line up with the contacts inside the headlight. Notice the tracks at the bottom.


    Those are so this metal strip on the carrier can glide into them...


    Oh yeah, the headlights came with batteries. They're low-quality carbon zinc, but they let me make sure the lights work until I can get home. For the price, there's not much to complain about. These lights are floody and plenty bright for most chores. The pivoting system is among the best I've seen in any headlight, let alone cheap ones. If you don't mind 3AAA carrier headlights, check out this three-pack.

    Those look really high-profile. Do they stick out a ways?

    You're lucky Delica likes to model headlights right after hiking...

    (She's ten, for reference of size.)


    She just caught four garter snakes and we put them in an aquarium; that's what she's staring at. She's not a zombie.
