4 times?
It depends, but lately it seems even the “old” H03 has gone up in price.
I bought mine for around $ 26 each, on sale or with a coupon code though.

I remembered $40 on a good deal but apparently wrong. $30 on a good deal. $26 is superb.

I have many headlamps. D10 is best bang for the buck imo.
Convoy H1 is easy to mod. It’s only 18.86 with coupon now.

Boruit RJ02. Not really (easily) moddable except for the incredible ease of a TIR swap. Go from 5° spot to 120° flood by just swapping TIRs in about 30sec.

Comes with a 30°, I think, and swapping for a 60° gave me more flood, as to me the 30° was a bit too narrow. 5°/8°/10° are quite common.

Lightbringer, I’d like to try the Boruit you like. I can’t find RJ02. Is this it?

Did I read somewhere that the TIR ‘s Convoy sells work?

If I remember correctly, the RJ02 had high parasitic drain so lock it out .

Certainly looks like it. Don’t think I’d trust any come-with cell, though, so go for the one without.

Any 20mm TIR lens fits. I got a whole assortment and they all work fine. I imagine Simon sells 20mm lenses, too, for the S2+, so offhand I’d say yes.

You’d forever burn in the hellfires of Gehenna.

You’re welcome.

All those cheap USB charging headlamps (a.f.a.i.k.) don’t have current regulation though.
They just have some resistors to limit the current, and they use PWM dimming for the brightness levels.
This means that the brightness of any mode depends on the voltage of the battery (which depends on the charge of the battery).
Even that Eagle Eye not so expensive headlamp works like this.
