Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zappy14 Works So Good I bought a 2nd One But.....
I bought my first headlamp over a year ago and it works great I like the 2 brightness options as well as its durability and it has been trouble free and ready when I need it. So....
I Liked it so much that I bought a second one at Christmas for use at the lake/boat and R/V well...
Here is where I have to say someone did not test this batch/run at the factory because it kills the batteries like a dead short when it is off (my best guess) because the batteries (5 days later) when I took them out had .38v after they rested.
I thought I just left it on the first time but the second time it was dead I knew something was not right, 6 brand new batteries just wasted. I now take the batteries out when I am not using it, not really ready when I need it.
I am going to try and send it in to get replaced, I hope they will replace it and some batteries. Otherwise I may just find a different brand to try and replace it with.
I do use Rayovac batteries and they last as long as any others and cost less, best money per volt IMO.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BOFASOFAS Great light
I thought this light was gana be brighter, it is still good for indoor use like in a crawl space and up close situations so you wont be blinded, or in a tent. The low mode is good for reading. This light is built fairly tough as well. Good for low-medium light applications I would say.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Great Value
I grabbed this headlamp today since I kept getting my expensive Petzl covered in grease. I certainly didn't expect such a great value. It's well made, comes with two straps and includes batteries for under $12. Water resistant, drop resistant, etc. etc. Can't beat it for the money. Super bright and focused beam. Top it off with a lifetime warranty. Seriously? Awesome headlamp for the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NorcalDave Lotsa light for $10!
Initially bought the "Rayovac Indestructible 3AAA 100 Lumen Headlight" stocked in HD stores. Found the light bright and it had great throw but the single high output LED's beam is a spot pattern with very little spill area outside the spot so I returned it. Run time was also a little low for me at a stated 3hrs on High and 15hrs Low.
Ordered this 35 Lumen model and it seems to be just what I needed. The 5 LED's in this model are set in a "+" pattern with a focusing reflector set behind them. This results in more area spill/flood for close-in work while still reaching out and illuminating objects decently inside of 40' with a center spot beam.
Run time for the lower power LED's in this light is stated to be 19hrs on High/40hrs Low. You're not getting any Power Regulation circuitry for $10 so I expect light output will dim appreciably towards the end of battery charge.
Overall, I'm pleased so far - if something breaks down the road, hopefully Rayovac will repair/replace it with the included lifetime warranty.

I wish you would update the Youtube Video on putting up the strap because it appears you changed the straps on this model so seeing the video may confuse someone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wind batteries difficult but product good
Could not figure out how to get the batteries in. Had to go to store for someone to help. There are no directions. For battery compartment, you have to raise the back hinge bracket ALL the up so the back is completely accessible. Then on side where says to open, pull up. Good to go then. There is video on how to affix the straps on internet. 4 star because of need to get assistance with batteries.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dale No instructions
This light probably works great. But there are no instruction for installing batteries or attaching strap. So I cant say for sure!! Very unhappy with this product at this time.
