Best Muggle Headlamp

Looking to purchase a few muggle friendly headlamps this season. Wanting something decently bright, 700+ lumens. Lithum rechargeables ok. Just don’t want the UI too complicated or the headlight excessively heavy.
Budget: $75 but open to other suggestions.

The Wowtac A2S and Sofirn SP40 are both pretty solid options. The Armytek Elf C2 is a bit higher-end and has a more efficient driver, but I’d argue the UI is a little more clunky.

non-zoomy-Single or double LED Version, doesn’t matter, they are both great for the little money.
But please don’t buy the battery with them and get a protected brand cell

How about the Armytek Wizard Pro V3? I’ve heard good things about it. Opinions anyone? What’s the UI like?

Has armytek improved their reliability issues?

I like the Wizard Pro, and Armytek did mention plans for a Nichia 144A version by the end of the year. Its UI is a bit on the complex side though, and it will remember blinky modes in the even the user manages to get to one via a quad-click.

I haven’t seen many failure reports about the Wizard Pro after the revision with the cooling fins. Warranty service may also be a bit better now that they have warehouses in the US and Germany, but I’m not sure if anybody has verified that recently.

When did they add the cooling fins?

A lot of these “warranty experiences” are from the last year or two Shocked

OK, never mind on the Wizard Pro. Sounds like Sofirn is probably the way to go.
