Years ago, I paid three figures for a good quality headlamp. It was very good, but it was also very bulky, with a large battery, and prone to bulbs blowing at inconvenient moments. Luckily, with the introduction of LED headlights, times have changed. This Gelert 8 + 2 Ultra-Bright LED Headlight is a prime example of what can now be bought for less than the price of a couple of beers!
This headtorch is lightweight, cheap as chips and will last up to 60 hours on just one set of batteries.
One important feature is that it has a red light facility. A red beam will not ruin your night vision, which can be especially handy on particularly dark nights, when white light can mean that it takes a while for your eyes to readjust to the dark..
Even at the usual full price of £10.50, it’s a good value headlamp. However, at the time of writing, the £5.29 price tag makes it exceptional value! If you’re not a heavy headlamp user, preferring just to use one for tackling up rather than spotting enemy aircraft, it could well worth adding one of these to your tackle box today.
