This review is from: 400LM CREE Q5 LED ZOOMABLE Cap Hat Light Torch Headlamp Headlight Hiking Fishing
Pros: Bright, excellent battery life. Grip on a cap is strong.
Cons: A little heavy. Uncertain durability, but I'm not worried about using it in a light drizzle.
Other Thoughts: Requires a ball cap as it doesn't have a headband; that's a matter of style, not a Pro or Con. I use this at my workbench while building PCs. I will also use it during outdoor activities like camping.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Light is very bright, but doesn't glare; easily enough for reading. No bluish cast. Stalk holds position if not bent too much.
Cons: No switch. One out of five in the package was DOA. Not worth a return, but obviously -1 egg. Stalk is a little short if you want to illuminate a laptop keyboard. Update: 1/10 on a second order was also DOA.
Other Thoughts: Appears to be an excellent prepping/camping item. Plugged into a power bank, it should last a very long time. I will order more of them. A 15%-20% DOA rate isn't good, but these are still cheap enough to be worthwhile.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Capacity at least the 750mAH minimum; probably 850-900. Not much else to add; they're standard AAA size, so they'll work in most applications for that size cell. Self-discharge is low. Many types of chargers available, including USB and solar.
Cons: NiMH batteries are nominally 1.2V, compared to standard single-use batteries being 1.5V. Anything motorized will run at lower RPM, and some lights will be a little dimmer (LED bulbs that use a driver may not show much difference). This is an established characteristic of NiMH cells, so no -egg.
Other Thoughts: Many LED flashlights use this size, so these can cut down the expense of replaceable batteries. I am very pleased with the capacity on these, unlike some cheapies that came with a USB charger which were grossly overrated. It is definitely worth getting the "real" ones.READ FULL REVIEW
