On the likes of Aliexpress, i see so many cheap flashlights. Its hard to know which are good value for money and which will fail after 5 minutes.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a Chinese headlamp under $30? The Trustfire MT15 looks promising.

Check out headlamps from Sofirn or Wurkkos. They are good quality for the money

Silva on sale. They are made in China but from Swedish company. You can also get a French Petzl for very little if you look around.

Perhaps you can be a bit more specific on your requirements, there is such a range of quality and
features out there. Personally, I go for some which are $5 or less, but that's just me.

Might as well flush your money down the toilet.
Best thing Trustfire makes are their clear plastic battery-cases.
(I'm not even joking about that.)

If you want a headlamp for right around $30, go to BatteryJunction.com and type "Headlamps" into the search feature on that website. Then, just scroll through the massive amount of choices at various different price-points. Yes, some at $30.

Wuben E7. Low price, sturdy product. Has upgrade add-ons. With the headlamp strap, it lands at your price limit.
I double the Wuben E7.

I have both versions (cool white, neutral white), both are nice and feel quality.
