User Review: Princeton Tec Remix
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $24
A very bright headlamp with multiple settings, but it didn't hold up to the humidity in South Florida.
- strong beam
- multiple settings
- battery door seems flimsy
- humidity problems
I have been through two of these. The first developed a problem after I used it on several kayak trips. It started turning itself on and then not turning on (or sometimes off) when I pressed the button. It seemed that the switch went bad. So to their credit, Princeton Tec replaced the lamp for free, no questions asked.
So, I was out on a camping trip in S. Florida with my new one, the humidity was high, and once again, the switch started acting funny. I couldn't get it to turn off so I had to take the batteries out. At that point, I decided it would serve the remainder of its life as my emergency and house headlamp (perhaps desert too?) because it just doesn't seem to hold up to wet or humid conditions.
It's too bad because the beam is the strongest I have ever owned. Perhaps Princeton Tec has or will improve on this design so that it is more durable.
