Princeton Tec Quad Tactical
Price Paid: $40
Excellent product. I spent considerable time researching headlamps. Liked the variety of Princeton Tec.
My need as a deployed Army soldier was to have a long lasting light with red-lense capability. I didn't want too strong of a light. Nothing that would bother others in a tent, but suitable for finding gear and reading. This light does all this.
Batteries last a long time. Occasional use over 4 months and haven't changed yet. The light adjusts from straight out to looking downward to your lap. 4 led bulbs are plenty bright for reading and looking inside an assault pack.
One time, the screw loosened and the batteries dropped out. Just wasn't checking. The downward movement over time may cause the light to flop down, but only time will tell with this. Red lense is very bright and wide beam. Light holds to my head and doesn't flop.
I would recommend the designed carrying case for holding extra lenses and keeping secure. I love it!
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Quad Tactical Headlamp from Princeton Tec is lightweight, durable, and ready to meet the needs of the military and outdoor sportsmen.Regulated Output: Princeton Tec lights feature regulated LEDs with a sophisticated regulating circuit that maintains constant brightness as long as the batteries have sufficient voltage. Through the "Regulated Output" period (constant brightness), the light will maintain a certain level of lumens depending on the setting. Following this duration, the light will continue to work, though it will function at a lower lumen output. Lights without "Regulated Output" will begin dimming slowly from the onset, and will continue to dim until the battery is exhausted. They will not maintain a constant lumen output like that of Regulated Lighting.
