Pelican 2750 LED Headlamp

rated 3 of 5 stars Great light, crap band. This would be my favorite headlamp, but the band started to rip the first day. I have repaired it with a needle and some braided fishing line but would prefer it to be a little more rugged on its own. Full review

HALO Pocket Power StarLight 3000

rated 1 of 5 stars I used it one time. It would not recharge. Full review

NiteCore SRT7 Revenger

rated 5 of 5 stars The SRT7 is a 1x18650, 2xCR123A/RCR model that is distinguished by several additional features, including multi-color secondary LEDs. I believe it is also the first Nitecore light I've tested with the latest XM-L2 white LED. The SRT7 has a forward tailcap clicky — press and release for momentary on, click for locked on.  Mode switching is controlled by the magnetic control ring in the head. As previously mentioned, the SRT7 features a continuously-variable interface for the main white LED. But… Full review

Poweradd Apollo

As a backup battery this is fine. But as a solar charger, it is horribly underpowered, and better options exist. I work in the solar business, and I've seen my fair share of these compact solar chargers come and go. Brunton sells a few for example. The problem they all have is that the solar is always a gimmick-add-on to what is otherwise a useful back-up battery pack. But realize that a backup battery is all these chargers really are.Save your money, and avoid frustration by choosing a more powerful… Full review

Poweradd Apollo

rated 5 of 5 stars This charger is perfect in every way. Based on its capacity, I can get almost 3 full charges out of it. Since it's solar powered, it's always powered up. I don't miss hunting for an outlet at airports whenever I travel. I should have purchased this years ago! Full review

Black Diamond Gizmo

rated 2 of 5 stars Hands down the poorest quality headlamp I have ever used. A flimsy, nearly paper-thin plastic housing makes this unit one battery change away from unusable. Before White Nose Syndrome precipitated the closure of state and Federally owned caves in Illinois, I provided an outdoor education course on caves to public and private schools. The culmination of this course was a 4-hour trip to Illinois Caverns. Although I limit trip sizes to only one classroom, I must still provide helmets and headlamps… Full review

Poweradd Apollo

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A 7200mAh Li-polymer battery with a 5V/180mA solar charger to recharge your devices in the backcountry or during power outages. Easy to use, reasonably sized, reasonably priced, and it gets the job done. As a long-time backpacker, the idea of bringing electronics into the wild is somewhat new to me. I've always had flashlights, of course, and I welcomed the transition to more efficient LED lights once I got used to the blueish glow of the LEDs, and I became an enthusiastic geocacher, too, which… Full review

Black Diamond Orbit

rated 5 of 5 stars Bright and compact! I love this little light. Worked great on a canoe trip: hang it from the center tent roof, perfect lighting with ability to dim or brighten. Functions either as lantern or flashlight! Small and compact. It might be heavy for backpackers, but for my outdoor activity, it is great. Takes a bit to figure out the on/off/adjust function but trial and error work, too. Well constructed. I don't think it will break. Collapsible design saves space. A bit pricey for a little light, but… Full review

Coleman LED Micropacker Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Great little compact light, durable and lightweight. This is an efficient little light that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Great for your kids who are just starting out in Scouting and want to have their own lantern. It takes 3 AA batteries and can be either a forward facing light or an all around lantern. I find that if left on I can get at most 72 hrs of usable light from this, but honestly who uses their lanterns straight for 72 hours? I like the little hanger at the top so it can be clipped to… Full review
