The headlamp is cool, but the 9-LED flashlight is not. The entire design is a little screwed up, and the manufacturing process messes with it. Like most metal flashlights, the negative terminal is the case. Unfortunately, the whole thing is covered in a nonconductive clear paint except in a few key locations, where a strip of metal touches the case, and is soldered to a wire, which goes up into the LED array and is soldered to the ground up there. Well, it turns out that the paint interfers with a solid connection between the strip of metal and the upper edge of the lower portion of the case. After doing a lot of random things like resoldering everything, I figured out that I needed to put a bit of solder onto the strips, to make them thicker, then I needed to sand the upper edge of the cylinder to make sure I got a good connection.
Once it's fixed, it's a decent flashlight.
Another mod to make is to solder on a bit of bell wire or thicker wire to the positive terminal, so you have a post to solder the flexible wire onto.
