Not a bad $13 offering for a 2-pack headlamp deal, if I do say so myself!

Such a tight spot would give me tunnel-vision if I were walking around with it. Way too much of a keyhole effect…

I’d slap on a layer (or two) of diffusion film to even out the beam.

Fwiw, one of my favorite cheap throwers was a gutted C8 with a modestly-driven ~4500K XP-E2. Pencil-beam with the small emitter in a relatively huge reflector. Threw like Hell at a miserly 1.4A or so, and battery life was amazing.

Yeah, such small tight hotspots are better for handheld throwers, not a headlamp.
