I totally agree with Boaterbob. The wife and I bought a couple of these from Wal-mart a couple years ago, and boy let me tell you they are bright. We use them as Texas Master Naturalist during frog watch, and critter watches at night. The trails we walk are very dark if you don't have a moon and there are snakes around the area we walk. We also use them kayaking and coming in after dark can be a challenge, but not with these.
Reviews for Energizer Headlamp (LED 2 white, 1 red)
Based On: 2 Reviews
They throw a good beam and the blinking option is great if you are in distress on the water. The red light is great to re-tie a lure on when night fishing also because they don't attract bugs, but when you switch over to white light, every bug in a 1/4 miles will home in on you! We also own several other lights similar to this one, but none of them last as long, and is as durable as this one. I give it top ratings, worth every penny we paid...($9.95).I bought this lamp for camping and night paddling and have used it over a dozen times over more than a year time period. I've not yet had to replace the batteries. Just recently, I fell into waist deep murky river water at night and it slipped off my head. I just knew I had lost it. The group continued on our night paddle for a couple of hours and when we returned, someone saw a red glow in the muddy water. I retrieved my headlamp, continued to use it, and it still works great today after hours of being submerged.
If I ever have to buy another, the Energizer will be the one. I highly recommend it. Besides its durability, the 2 LEDs are very bright and the red one is quite handy, too.
