don’t know anything about the seller, or the light, but that is an amazing price as I looked around the net.

Ordered. I don’t know the seller either but it’s low risk with PayPal.

One thing though: It gave me the Chinese PayPal page and I had to change the URL to take the “CN” out of it so it would give me the PP login page in English. I saw that Chinese PP login and almost hit cancel, but this headlamp looks really nice so I’ll take a chance. For this price I’m happy to hack the URL Smile

nice headlamp! But where is the high quality headlamp in this form factor running on one AA/14500?, I have a cheapy, but wouldn't mind a Nitecore or Crelant version.

460 lumens at 2A seems a bit poor to me, my 2A mods have higher output Undecided

I have the Nitecore HC50 headlamp which is 18650 and it’s much more compact than I thought it would be, and comfortable to wear.

Nice deal, considering they’re $48-$50 elsewhere.

It will be my first headlamp this decade.. Silly

Here's some info I found at some other site Wink I would be more interested if the emitter were accessible and if it started in low mode first.

 

Looks fairly promising, nice job. I like the fact it has a top band. I have a few questions.
• Can you describe the UI?
• Is the brightness ramped linear or logarithmic?
• Do you have access to the emitter, in other words does the head unscrew?
• Do you have any accessories to make the beam more floody?
• What is the lowest setting (it can’t be 120 lm with .01A)?
• What is the beam profile (20/80, 70/120)?
• Can you run unprotected batteries?
• Does it have reverse polarity protection?
• Is there a pocket clip option?
Thank you in advance for answering the questions.

Hi Knight_Light,

Many thanks for your questions, good questions!

1. Press the switch to turn the flashlight on (High mode comes on first). *** With the flashlight on, click the switch once to access the low mode, double click the switch to access Strobe mode, double click again to access SOS mode, click once to turn off. *** With the flashlight on, press and hold the switch to ramp through the infinitely variable brightness system.
2. The brightness ramped linear.
3. The head screwed and unable to get to the emitter.
4. The headlamp itself is the orange peel reflector with large spot, and currently don't have accessories to make it more floody.
5. Yes, you're right, it is 120 lm at 0.3A
6. The largest angle of the orange peel reflector is 100°.
7. Yes, it could run with unprotected batteries, but protected batteries are more recommended.
8. Yes, it has reverse polarity protection.
9. Only have the headband.

Enjoy your time, thank you again!

The slider on that HC90 looks a little dicey. I’m curious how it stands up to real world use. This Crelant head lamp just uses the main button to get variable brightness. This only my second head lamp so I’m excited to see how it does. Someone told me not to buy the “unicorn” style head lamps but this Crelant just looks cool.

That was a huge turn off for me. The hc50 looks like a beautiful piece of functional art, but the hc90 looks.. ‘Meh’ with that peculiar slider.

If I had money to spend I would get this crelant.

Is it 29.99$ shipped?

And is Crelant a budget light company or a premium brand?

yes its 29.99 shipped

31.99 if you want registered tracking

IMO crelant is a high end budget brand or low end premium brand… way better than anything trustfire/ultrafire, but not fenix

Would you mind keeping the wrong flashlight?

It’s a superb design and implementation. Nitecore really hit it out of the ballpark with the HC50. I think I will hold off on the HC90 until somebody confirms whether the slider is any good. Seems like maybe they outsmarted themselves with that one.

It sure looks like it’s worth $29.99! Anyone have experience with this seller? I hope they don’t screw me.

Picked one up. I really like Crelant lights, and paypal has our risk.

Yeah. Let PayPal take that risk. As far as I’m concerned, every one of these sellers is shady, even the better known ones. So I look at it as risk management.

You're right. I think I'll order one myself. Paypal will stand behind us if there's a problem.

that was my reasoning as well – i was hesitant at first – but then remembered paypal will stand behind the buyer 100%

paid the extra $2 for tracking since i ordered 2

Something weird is happening when I try logging into paypal via lastpass on this sellers site. It's telling me my password has changed and to confirm the change which it didn't because I logged in to my paypal account separately with my lastpass login. Anyone else??? This has never happened before. That said, I didn't end up buying anything..

I dont use last pass – but when i logged in- it logged me in to paypal.com/cn (chinese)

I was still able to check out since all i had to do was hit the big orange button that says pay now

might be causing problems with last pass because its redirecting to the chinese site.

All I did was hack the URL to take out the /CN right after the domain name and viola, it gave me the English version of PayPal’s site.

I would really change name of this forum to something like “Borg Light Forum collective”, you end up assimilated and you don’t even notice when that happens. Silly
