+Verboten Posted April 15, 2003 Share Posted April 15, 2003 I want to get an LED headlamp, and I'm ready to drop a few bucks on a better name if it's worth it. I'm just not sure if it's worth it. I know Petzl is a huge name in headlamps, if not the biggest. I was looking at their MYO 5, which looks like a fine lamp. It has 5 LEDs plus a Xenon bulb for distance. The downside is it's $60 plus shipping. The leading contender is the Streamlight Septor. Also looks like a nice lamp. Seven LEDs instead of 5, but no Xenon bulb. The upside is it's about half the price, at $32 shipped. The final contender is the budget choice. Energizer just released a 3 LED (2 white, one red) headlamp for the low, low price of $12.50 at Wally World. It's not even on their website yet. This may be all I need, but I tend to buy things that will last a while instead of disposable goods. I'd hate to use this for a couple months and replace it. So, what do you think of my choices? Anything else I should be looking at? Any personal experience you'd care to share? Anyone? Thanks, -Vb [This message was edited by Verboten on April 15, 2003 at 03:05 AM.] Quote Link to comment
