User Review: Princeton Tec Byte
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $3
This is my second one as I had to return the first one because only one of the three lights would work after a weekend backpacking trip.
- Three functional light modes
- Only 2 oz in weight
- Comfortable headband
- The first one I bought had problems
- Appear to be a lot of issues from other reviewers so trust is moderate
I got this lamp at Sports Authority using a 20% off coupon and awards points so ended up paying something like $3 for it. I really hope this one works out because I really like this light. It is much lighter than my four battery Petzl and it puts out some pretty serious light.
I like the red light function for moving around in the tent so as not to mess with my night vision. Just be sure to close your eyes when you cycle through the white lights when turning it off. I also have been using it while doing work under my Rover.
I agree with one of the other reviewers that (even though the on button is pretty big) it is sometimes hard to find and turn on especially while wearing gloves. Also, I find that to adjust the angle of the light, it takes two hands to accomplish (one to hold the base and the other to move it up or down). Maybe it'll loosen up some with more use.
