    Does the headlamp move on its base so you can aim it up and down slightly?
    A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: If you wear the lamp with the light switch on top (as shown in the product picture) then you can tilt the lamp downwards. If you need to tilt it upwards, you'll need to wear the lamp with the switch on the bottom. The hinge or swivel is along only one edge.
    what type of battery is used? Lithium, NiCad or something else?
    A shopper on Jun 7, 2018
    What is the anticipated battery life in low mode? What is the light output on the low setting?
    Jon G on Apr 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: So, in order to answer this question, I first fully charged my unit. Then, over the the next 3 days, I ran it while I could keep an eye on it and with the help of a stopwatch, I timed the amount of time it was on. When I couldn't keep an eye on it, i.e., sleeping or out of the house, I shut the lamp off and timer as well. When the battery's charge finally went out, the stopwatch was just shy of 16 hours. I hope this helpedEnter an answer to this question.
    does the light have a flashing(strobe) setting ?
    A shopper on Sep 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: yes. The white light cycles between full brightness, half brightness and strobe. The red light cycles between on and strobe.
    Is the battery replaceable?
    Ronald B on Sep 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Technically, yes, you can reach the battery. However, I would not describe it as (easily) replaceable. It is rechargeable and that makes it easy to maintain for a weekend camping trip. But if you need to be out for a week or more, the battery might not last. That said, the battery recharges by micro USB so you could bring along a battery pack to recharge it during the day.
    Is it a spot light or flood light. does it have a nice even beam like zoomable lights?
    A shopper on Jun 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It's a "spot and spill" light - the spill is very wide and usably bright but the central spot is much brighter and has a fairly definite edge rather than a smooth transition.
    The beam shape cannot be adjusted. High and medium have the same beam pattern.

    There are now reviews on a couple of flashlight enthusiast forums that include beamshots and compare it to a floody headlamp.
    Can you use the light while it is charging? Say from a portable battery pack.
    A shopper on Jan 20, 2017
    The battery in my light discharges over the course of around two weeks on the shelf. Is this normal?
    A shopper on Nov 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I can't tell you specifically how long mine stays charged but is muck longer than two weeks
    Does the red light have a separate switch from the white light or do you have to sequence through the white light settings first, thus ruining your night vision?
    Dana H on Sep 28, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Hi, they do have separate switches, one on each side of the controls pictured on the top of the product. You'll have to remember which is which to avoiding ruining your night vision, but it should be easy to learn after a few tries.

    Very pleased
    First the so/so:

    Weight is actually 2.465oz, (1.965 oz headlamp, 0.50 oz band). With the short USB cord measuring .265 oz.
    This is on a calibrated, very accurate scale.

    Button mode cycle:
    White: High - Low - Strobe - Off
    Red: On - Strobe - Off

    Must click through whole cycle to turn off. White light starts on high. Not big deals, but not desirable either. (clicking though the strobe mode just to turn it off is annoying, and higher-end headlamps don't do this)

    The back panel/pivoting plate doesn't seem the most sturdy, but sufficient.

    The Good:
    Very Bright! Red light is an appropriate brightness (not too bright, not dim). Strobe function is fast and both lights can run at the same time (for bicycling, jogging, etc.)

    Headlamp can run while charging, unknown how well it charges while also running though.

    Overall, very pleased, great rechargeable headlamp for the weight and price.

    Light and effective
    Brought this on a recent hiking trip to the Grand Canyon. It works well - very lightweight with the built-in battery. The red LEDs help you see without disturbing others around you. Just remember that you cannot replace the battery in the field - you need to plan to bring a portable battery pack if you think you may exhaust the built-in battery.

    For my money you can't beat monoprice! (or this headlamp)
    I've made 3 monoprice purchases now. All 3 have been outstanding products & outstanding value, period. The headlamp is great! Used it numerous times already on nighttime installation work I do. Works easy & flawlessly & effectively. Solid design. Gives good light & good adjustments. One of the best ten bucks I've ever spent. Everyone I show it to is quite surprised when I tell them price. Of course I turn them all onto the site. (I love my "strat" guitar..)

    Massive bang for the buck!
    Phenomenally feature rich and hella bright! Build quality may not be "quite" up to par with Petzl, or Black Diamond, BUT I challenge you to find a brighter, more feature full AND rechargeable headlamp for under $50! THIS ONE'S ONLY $10!!!!!

    Great Hunting Light
    For all the hunters and outdoorsmen I highly recommend this light. I used it this past weekend for hunting and it is great.

    Reliable, bright, easy to use
    I bought two of these for my kids for stocking stuffers. They are really bright and the red LEDs are great for times when they want to be more stealth. Easy to use product and I like the fact that the battery is rechargable via microUSB. I have those cables all over my house...

    Vastly more light for your buck than usual 3xAAA lights
    Monoprice underrates the battery life, which I'd rate as 3:30 on high (should be well over 13 hours on medium but I haven't tested that precisely). Medium is probably just a bit over 50 lumens. Doesn't have a low mode, which would have come in handy for e.g. reading in a tent.

    Direct drive rather than regulated, so it's brightest when freshly charged, quickly drops by about a fifth, takes three hours to gradually drop from 80% to 50%, then drops the rest of the way in 20 more minutes.

    70 g with headband, and seems quite durable except maybe the charging port cover.

    Overall, beats the pants off most 3xAAA headlights, and it doesn't just cost less than those lights, it costs less than getting a pack of rechargeable AAAs. Recommended.

    Great headlight for running, garage, outdoor activities early morning or late evening
    Value for money, great quality and better than Costco headlights available at higher price. I bought one more for my buddy.

    Very Satisfied Repeat Buyer
    Real nice item and easy to use. Have used mine to work on my car at night, pull merchandise from my warehouse basement and search for a missing cell phone in a parking lot.. Has a very bright light. I liked it so much that I made a second purchase and gave them out as party favors.

    Rechargeable Headlamp
    This lamp is bright, easy to use and works well. Fits comfortably and is adjustable. I would recommend it.
