Vizz

rated 1 of 5 stars Why do the batteries routinely go dead after just a few hours? The first Vizz I owned seemed to have an electrical short -- why else would the battery go dead so quickly? So I called Princeton Tec to report the problem and they graciously agreed to have me send it back to them. They soon sent me another -- and the life of the batteries is equally poor: maybe 2 hours of use, and now the red light indicating low battery life is flashing. The problem with the burn time negates any redeeming qualities… Full review

Apex

rated 5 of 5 stars A great headlamp. Waterproof battery pack a key feature. A really good product. Got it for under $50 on Sierra Trading. Store without batteries to prevent leakage. Full review

Vizz

rated 4 of 5 stars I have to say overall not a bad light for its price point. It does the job well, not great, but well. I have not used this light for extended periods of time yet. What I can say is that it is a pretty decent light at its price point. I'm definitely a light freak. I have many flashlights. It's kind of a hobby.

I have really only used… Full review

Fuel

rated 4 of 5 stars The Princeton Tec Fuel is an inexpensive headlamp with a reputation of having the battery door break on users. This user has carried the Fuel for nearly two years on numerous backpacking/camping trips and has found it to be a lot of light for a little price. The Con Everyone Complains of: Let's get right to the con, because that seems to be the issue most talked about. Yes, the battery door requires a delicate touch. If you know that when you buy it, you should be all right. However, the Fuel has… Full review

Vizz

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Frustrating product. Would not recommend. This headlamp has the listed FEATURES as are advertised, but are useless when the lamp fails to light. The batteries DO NOT last anywhere near what they claim. There is NO WAY I get HOURS out of each set of batteries, and I use alkaline, exactly what they recommend. And I do not mix old with new. I use my lamp when I go to my barn after dark. Total time of usage would be 10 to 20 minutes each trip. I am lucky to get three trips before batteries die. PTEC… Full review
