          Q:Is this headlamp compatible with Milwaukee hard hat Bolt attachment system? The Milwaukee hard hat came with a headlamp clip that slides on the front, so you can remove the head band from the headlamp and attach the light directly to the hard hat.

            I would highly recommend this head lamp
            Im a Journeyman Lineman and I was working in the Detroit area restoring power and I was in need of a hard hat light luckily for myself I was able to buy the last one at the store. I was so impressed the fact that I didn’t need to change out batteries. It was so convenient to plug it in to charge and the charge time is very fast. The 4 black hook clips worked great keeping it attached to my hard hat and the big surprise was that the light is magnetic this way if you just need a light without your hard hat it detaches. The other lineman were very impressed and were going to get the same one.

              Battery Junk
              Battery is not good and it’s unfortunate that it is non repairable and I cannot change it out. Used for like 45 minutes to an hour max and came back the next day and no power, 100% dead. These LEDs are supposed to be energy conserving? I have great 100% luck with the 12 volt batteries but the new usb depending on what your using at a 50/50 not so much and as for these rechargeable sealed products 0%.

                The nicest headband light I’ve owned to date.
                BACKGROUND: I have several headband lights, some cheap, some from big-name companies; but the Milwaukee 2012R is the nicest by far. FIT AND FINISH: The quality of materials is comparable to my other Milwaukee tools and gear and is totally acceptable for a light in this price point. The head is very compact but easy to operate and the quick-detach magnetic mount capability is very handy. FEATURES: For a small light there is a lot to say. • 450 Lumens of TRUEVIEW High-Definition Output o (From an online source) Milwaukee says that their TRUEVIEW LED products have a CRI of 85 (the maximum CIR is 100.) That is not what would be considered a “very high CRI,” but it is in the top 15 percent. Milwaukee’s TRUEVIEW LED lighting products have a color temperature of 4000K, which is not quite what would be considered daylight (~5600K). 4000K is between warm and cool ends of the white light spectrum and is quite pleasing. • Spot, Flood and Hybrid Beam Options for the Ideal Intensity and Coverage o Two LED lights with the ability to switch either or both on at the same time. • 5 Light Output Modes: o Hybrid Spot/Flood mode: 450-Lumens- 2.5 hours o Spot High: 250-Lumens- 4 hours o Spot Low: 50-Lumens- 8 hours o Flood High mode: 250-Lumens- 4 hours o Low: 50-Lumens- 14 hours • Magnetic light head detaches from the strap holster o Pop the light off for hand-held or magnetic mounting (see photos) • Can magnetically mount the light head in 3 positions (see photos) • Rechargeable via supplied 2-foot Micro-USB cable o I’m converting all my mobile lighting to rechargeable; it beats grabbing a light that has dead (and leaking) batteries. • Monitor runtime with an on-board battery indicator (Green, Yellow, Red) • IP54 rated as weather and dust resistant and survives impacts from up to 2 meters • 2-year warranty • 5-Position Adjustable Light Head strap holster for Directing Light o The holster uses a detent type angle adjustment which is handy when you can’t get your head positioned at the right angle. • Soft, sweat absorbing microfiber padding on the forehead of the adjustable elastic head band is very comfortable. • Light Holster can be removed from the head strap and attached to the light bracket on Milwaukee BOLT hardhats. o It’s a bit of a pain to do, but if you were going to use the light almost always on a hardhat this is a handy feature (see photos.) Because the light mounts to the holster magnetically you can still remove it from the hardhat to mount somewhere else. • 2-year Warranty • Includes: (1) 2012 Rechargeable Magnetic Headlamp and Task Light w/ (1) 2-foot heavy duty cable and (4) Universal hard hat clips o If you don’t have a Milwaukee BOLT hardhat with a light bracket on the front you can use the clips to put the head strap on your hardhat. (I have already misplaced the clips.) OPERATION: Two buttons: on/off, and mode. The mode button cycles through the 5 lighting modes described above. The light does remember the last lighting mode used and will return to that mode when the light is turned on again. The light WILL NOT TURN ON while charging. SUMMARY: Small, light, with good features. Perfect for my DIY work.

                Bright and Comfortable
                I have had this headlamp for a few weeks now. It is considerably bright and really functional along with a few different light settings. It is adjusts in a few different positions to enable more light on your work if you can not tilt your head. It is comfortable to wear. I have used it about 6 times and am glad that I have it. It recharges fast enough for me and uses a standard HDMI cord like you use in your phone. I hope to get a lot of use out of this.

                Great 3rd Hand!
                The Milwaukee 450 Lumens Internal Rechargeable Magnetic Headlamp and Task Light is a God sent when you need three hands (2 for the task and 1 for mobile illumination)! Very well made, with positive adjustable fitting and placement angles, the headlamp allows me to perform detailed task with a bright, clear visibility that allows my vision to "Properly See" what I'm working on. Most of my DIY around-the-home jobs can't be relocated to my well illuminated work bench, thus this small tool greatly assist my repair, reconstruction, installation and maintenance activities! It is one of the first tools I grab when going to perform jobs around the house!!

                Great as a task light or a headlight
                I have a few different styles of headlights but since receiving this Milwaukee light - it is my go-to light in my tool box. I like the durable construction and design. Milwaukee really thought this one out with the magnetic base light that separates from the headband. This makes the Milwaukee a versatile task light that can be placed anywhere there is magnetic metal. The light magnetic base is very strong so the light stays in place, even when using with the headband, the magnet stays in place when pulling down on the light to aim. I also like the built-in battery. I can easily recharge the Milwaukee OTG in my truck or with one of my tool power bases. No more disposable batteries. Battery life is sufficient for my needs and recharge is impressive. The built-in battery meter is helpful - it is a fuel gauge of the battery. Light output is very adequate when using any combination of spot and flood and the TRUEVIEW color helps with detail work such as working with colored wires. The kit comes with everything needed including hard hat clips and a USB charging cable.

                Very bright, great battery life
                Been using this light a whole lot lately and am extremely content with it. It's got 5 lighting modes (flood high/low, spot high/low, both high). It puts out a whole lot of usable light when both LEDs are on full brightness at the expense of battery life - I get somewhere around 2-3 hours of use in this setting which is within the advertised specs. The headband is comfortable and the whole assembly is rather lightweight. What really sets this light apart is the ability to remove the light from the headband, so you can use it for area lighting in a pinch. The magnet is very strong and it sticks really well. It takes a surprising bit of force to remove from the headband, so there's no chance that it will pop off accidentally. Overall a great light and addition to my toolbox!

                Great magnetic mount headlamp
                I love the magnetic feature. Headlamps are great, but every once in a while you just need a light in a certain spot. IE cleaning out the freezer, fixing the furnace, working on your car/truck etc. It is bright but not insane. I have another Milwaukee headlamp that is so bright you feel like you are walking around with a truck light bar mounted to your forehead. This has plenty of light but doesn't light up the entire work area like some of the other Milwaukee headlamps. Note the red in description is the color of the band. The headlamp does not have a red light. I received Milwaukee 450 Lumens Internal Rechargeable Magnetic Headlamp and Task Light, Red for free to write this review.

                A very functional headlamp
                The Milwaukee 450 Lumens Internal Rechargeable Magnetic Headlamp and Task Light is a very functional headlamp. To start with the on/off button is round and the mode selector button is rectangle shaped so there is no mixing up which one is which. Seems novel I know, but one would be surprised how many manufacturers make both switches identical, which leads to frustration. The next cool feature is the magnetic attachment, which means the light is easily removed from its perch and is attachable to most anything metal. The light is adjustable with five clicking positions that allow the light to rotate as much as 90 degrees. The light itself has five lighting options that provide both a flood and focused light (high and low), or a combination of both lights which only has a high option. This headlamp is both durable and comfortable to wear. It has an internal battery that is charged with a USB cable (provided). It even comes with hard hat adapters that for some reason won’t work on my hard head.
