User Review: Princeton Tec Apex
Price Paid: $79
I bought the light based on the graph on the package which suggested the highest setting could be used for 72 hours on alkaline batteries.
When I opened the package, I found a chart indicating the highest setting would only last for ONE (!!!) hour. The other 71 hours were "regulated" and would not be taking advantage of the 3 watt system I had paid for.
I called Princeton Tec and they informed me the 72 hours was total burn time. The highest output is only for 1 hour "or more."
Decide for yourself if this type of advertising hype is a disservice. The light works, it is bright, but don't plan on skiing for longer than an hour.
