    Any way here is my $17 head light in the pic on the rods it is only on mid strength, it takes an 18650 cell and I have 5 of these in the double and single LED the single gives you a more narrow beam and more distance about 150yards and the double which I prefer for fishing as it gives a wider beam is good for about 100 yards on high beam ......

    That's most impressive for a $17 headlamp Tac; especially given it runs off an 18650.
    Did you get it online or locally?
    I've got a fairly spendy Wizard head torch which is excellent, but I could go something a little more disposable for when I'm messing around on cars.

    I will give one a run, I am over the ledlensers which are nice and powerfull but always go flat when not being used unless I take out one of the batteries. I had 2 and bought 2 for my kids all have same problem.

    It's ok if you already have 18650 battery Blair , if you don't do not get cheap chinga cells your head is no place for one of them if it lets go ......
    I only use Sanyo or Panasonic cells .

    Blair there is one that you can focus bit I gave that one away to it is very sharp edged like a stage light and also about 7000k so too white for my eyes , and don't belive any of the lumen factors from the red country as they are like there battery sooooooo over rated .
    And the L2 is the best one .
    And as for the multi led lights there is a reason I don't own one .

    thx for that tac, I will go for the L2,s just spent an hour studying leds, L2 is newer. can you remember the focusing ones model number I might get one for distance.
    These will replace my H7.2 led lensers P7 is good very reliable handy to hang off a barrel as well.
    Will get good quality batteries, would hate to come home whith the front of my head missing wife would be very angry.:eek::mad:

    The single LED one is good for about 150yards ...... And it takes a very good scope to deal with the very white light of the focusing light ......
