Non-sofirn COB Headlamps

Are either of the two non-sofirn headlamps on their site worth buying for something used rarely? One is $3.99 and the other is $4.59 so I’m not expecting too much. Is it easy to replace the battery when necessary?

If they aren’t worthwhile do you have any suggestions?

I’m not familiar with the two headlamps that you’re referring to, but I got the new Energizer ENHDGRLP a couple weeks ago and like it quite a bit.

They had the cheapest one on there awhile back and got a couple 1 stars, not because it wasn’t good, but because once opened it had a 1200mAh cell inside. Some people are very frustrating to think they expected a 3000+ mAh for $4.

IIRC the other feedback was good apart from the weak headband causing it to slip a little. Looking at AliExpress reviews it has good feedback suggesting it’s fine for running so this is either a different one or the factory upgraded the headband

I bought one of each of the cheap ones. Haven’t really used either except to play around with them but they seem fine. Considering the price point they are excellent.
