Byte

rated 1.5 of 5 stars NO value if the batteries continue to die. I found this collection of reviews while searching for battery usage problems I've experience with the Byte. I like its size and the fact it only uses two AAA batteries, but none of these advantages matter if the light is always dead when I go to use it. I often store the light in a drawer for weeks until needing it again. Every time I find the batteries have died. I've also tried removing the batteries when not in use, but this is a hassle, and then I'm… Full review

Sync

rated 3 of 5 stars An average headlamp that runs well, is easy to operate, and features a good range of motion. A few flaws, but for the price, it's a serviceable option for campsite or tent usage. Conditions:I purchased this headlamp nearly one year ago, based on its low price and a friend’s recommendation. Nearly all of its use has been in cool to warm temperatures (40-85°F), with minimal exposure to freezing temperatures (which tends to exhaust batteries quicker) and it has handled moderately rainy conditions.

Helix Bluetooth

rated 3 of 5 stars The Princeton Tec Helix Backcountry is a collapsible lantern, which uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery (1800 mAh or 3 AA batteries as a back-up), to boast up to 250 lumens of ambient light.

Helix Backcountry

rated 5 of 5 stars OMG. This thing kicks ass!!!!! This is the coolest light I have ever owned. So many useful ways to use. Can be used with or without the rubber diffuser like a flashlight, or hanging from a tree, or just  sitting on a table. Very bright! Full review

Byte

rated 4 of 5 stars This is one awesome headlamp. Light and bright, well bright enough for me. Had mine for about three years, maybe more? Three settings of light and easy to adjust. This was a gift to me after a fall in the dark at Camp Daniel Boone in WNC. It got 70 lumens up to 30 meters. At 2.26 it is light and small. The hi and low settings are bright. The red light function is great for not waking the whole camp at night. Mine was a gift. But they run about 23 to 30 bucks. Full review
