Battery door broke off, this happens often, apparetly on both 3 and 4 led "fuel' headlamps.

Emailed Princeton Tec, received an offer to mail out two new doors.



This is my response to that, they should replace them with a lamp that is reliable:

Thanks Pam, I guess its the best thing to do, too bad now I'll have to carry the spare doors and probably another light and pair on needlenose pliers to re attach the new door if it breaks at night. I'll bring a Black Diamond headlamp, for that.



No more Princeton Tec products for this unhappy camper

this is an email I sent to Princeton Tec:

Hello,

Am avid biker/hiker/camper and have quite a few of your products, i.e., the Fuel ( three, two for gifts), a few "scouts", two "genesis handheld, even a few other items. Right now I'm packing for a weekend outing and dropped a "Fuel" headlamp. The battery door just broke off, upon further inspection, it should have broken off, by design. It is a horrible design; it is flimsy and discouraging that you
could market these items. I'm still on the original batteries provided so it's not like it's worn out. It might be manageable if this wasn't such a catrastrophic failure; the cover cannot be secured without that inferior hinge.
