Nitefighter Cree XR-E Headlamp L1A

Looking at adyscarborough’s thread on his impulse purchase from ILF’s recommended dealer, I saw this:

Has anyone bought this? I’ve been promising my wife a headlight (ZL H502W), but have been rapidly going off the idea. Thought this one might do the job. I found a CPF marketplace thread on it, where one guy bought it, the strap broke, end of thread. I have a KD headband, so would probably use that. Looks Ok for $29.

Doesn’t look worth it for $29. I wouldn’t bother unless it has a great moonlight low. The same money could buy the Trustfire Z2, 14500’s and a charger. Supposedly it works with AA’s, but I tried it once and it didn’t light up. These also work:

The low mode should be lower.

Fair point about moonlight mode. I don’t like the look of the Z2 though. Think I’ll hold fire.
