3 out of 5 eggs Misleading Lumens & LED Yet Long Runtime 06/05/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RLFL-11004 1W 70 Lumens LED Head Lamp

Pros:

- Low cost
- Lightweight and compact head
- Very good runtime
- Momentary type power switch latches circuit, longer lasting than mechanical on/off type switches found in most inexpensive headlamps

Cons:

- Misleading, not a 1W LED and not 70 lumens. This uses a Chinese manufactured Pirana 0.5W Super Flux LED rated somewhere between 25 and 35 lumens.

This is very easy to prove, based on comparison beams, the physical appearance of the LED as pictured or looking at the light, internet pictures and datasheets, lack of a heatsink base, and by the power consumption measured with a multimeter.

- Flimsy swivel
- Thin, short elastic
- Thin, fragile wire

Other Thoughts:

Cool white, roughly 6500K) tint.

It's bright for a 0.5W LED, and frankly it might be the right choice if you need longer runtime from a 3 x AAA powered light, several hours instead of only a couple on many headlamps running on high, except that many others have a medium to low mode that would accomplish the same.

Otherwise, just about any other headlamp made today that uses a single power LED and this volume/weight of batteries is brighter.

It has a broad, fairly even beam without much of a hotspot, suitable for short distances, indoor use for example not outdoor navigation. I'll probably use when working under my car.

It's no more or less water resistant than another other headlamp that's not waterproof. In other words if it gets wet you may have a problem, but there are no bright, waterproof headlamps at this price point.
