    Zebralight or Fenix? Long runtime needed

    The HP25R 2.0 looks interesting. I like the idea of locating the battery at the back of the head. On my Armytek headlamps, the back of the headband is always riding up. Some weight back there might reduce that tendency.

    Automotive IIHS test of headlamp performance

    Yes, it is. Seems that IIHS is setting the bar a little low. Despite that, IIHS says that only 29% of all the tested model-year-2021 headlight systems earned a rating of "good". The 2021 F-150 LED reflectors were rated "acceptable" and the halogen reflectors were rated as "poor".
