LED headlamp advice?


Recommended Posts

I have a Princeton Tec Aurora which I purchased at REI. The light is almost perfect for what I use it for - the problem is (and it's a big one) that the on/off switch is easily bumped in a pocket or backpack and when I go to use it, the battery is dead. Have to keep it in a hard case.

i use a black diamond moonlight here as a LED hea1dlamp. 4 LEDS, 3 brightness settings on low it will last 170 hours on 3 AAA batts. on high 70 hours. lightweight, and built nice.


for lots of light.. look into halogen, krypton/led combos. try them out. look at the settings, and functions on them. you want to be able to switch to 1 led or 2 leds if your batteries go dim. that way you will always have light.


always carry a decent pack light too. led flashlights and lithium lights are a good source of backup light.


i also carry a military strobe. 20$ if you look for it.. in case!!
