Interesting budget priced 3xAA dual headlamp from Manafont

Might be a decent buy at only $12.  This site claims it has a Q3 bulb and produces 120 lumens. I'm not sure about that battery box at the back of the head though, sounds rather uncomfortable.

If one is a Q3, what is the other one? Two Q3s? Looks cool though.

Very interesting 3aa is great news, the run time on the 3aaa headlamps is a real turnoff.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

So apparent there a fixed aspheric on the small barrel and tir on the big one. Interesting, but kind of duplicates functionality of a zoom optic.
