BioLite Headlamp 330

rated 4 of 5 stars Thin, light, balanced, rechargeable, bounce-free—put the Headlamp 330 on the buy-list. The technology is advanced enough that rechargeable headlamps are finally a good deal. You can't get this much light in this small of a package anyplace else so far. Remember when a 90-lumen headlamp was the best thing ever? Say hello to 330! Winter is a time when runners have to run in the dark to get their miles in. Short days mean you need a headlamp. Most flashlights and headlamps are little more than a… Full review

Light & Motion Solite 150

rated 4 of 5 stars Highly recommended after several tests outdoor (several days of hiking in the German Alps). I disagree with the first review: I consider it an absolute PLUS to be able to charge via USB. Take a power bank and charge the Solite as often as needed on a trip of several days. Everyone has multiple wall plug adaptors already, so why should LightnMotion provide another? Full review

Petzl Reactik +

rated 0.5 of 5 stars A total pain in the ass to get all lights at max. Total pain to use buttons. And why did I buy a light with an app? Full review

Petzl Bindi

rated 4 of 5 stars A small, rechargeable headlamp that takes up minimal space. Modes and Run Times: Three white beams: 5 lumens (50 hours run time), 100 lumens (3 hours run time), and 200 lumens (2 hours run time) Two red beam options: solid and blink For a small, compact headlamp, these modes are pretty good, with my only complaint being the noticeable difference between 100 lumens and 200 lumens of the white beam is very minor. I’d personally prefer to see the 100 lumen option nixed for something more akin… Full review

Petzl Actik

rated 4 of 5 stars It's your definitive all-purpose headlamp, plus two red modes (solid and strobe). The manufacturer specs are as follows:   Range: I think the manufacturer overstated the high-power distances. I'm going from the following baseline: back-country camping far away from urban light pollution, on a dark night without much moonlight, in a dense area with forest canopy above, and no campfire or other lights... so pretty dark. At the lowest setting (5 lm), I'd say it's similar to the 10m (30 ft) advertised. Full review

Princeton Tec Fuel

rated 1 of 5 stars This is just one of the models of theirs I've owned. All had switches go out and drain batteries when not on. POS, go with anything else. Crappy products. All models I've had drain batteries when turned off and switches fail. Full review

Princeton Tec Apex Pro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent cold weather headlamp. Excellent light for cold weather hunting, ice fishing, and search and rescue.  Full review

Ledlenser SEO5

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For the pice a superb head torch with enough light to race with, but not enough to illuminate the entire mountain (a blessing in my view). This is a simple well powered head torch that does what you need for a long night race. It has a 3 x AAA setup so you can use both rechargeable and single use batteries. They sit in the back of the light so no need for a separate pack.  Light is clear and focusable. You can dial up and down or choose the quick half power settings. Personally I use half power… Full review

Princeton Tec Vizz

rated 1 of 5 stars Liked it initially, but chews through batteries and died after 12 months. Ptec wouldn't cover it. I found one of the outer white LEDs didn't always work and the battery life is terrible. It took me a while to work out, but when I turned the lamp off the main LED was still on, only very dull, but you could not turn it off. Then after 12 months it stopped working altogether and despite a "lifetime warranty" it was not covered. I would not buy Princeton Tec ever again. Full review
