Dead after two years of minimal use
After two years the unit no longer works. At first I thought my batteries were dead, but this is not the case. There is some kind of malfunction with the button. I've taken this light on a max of 15 short (3 nights or less) backpacking trips.
That's a max of 45 hours of usage at a max of 1 hour used per night.
The unit still looks brand new.
It was good while it worked, but failing after such limited use means I can't trust this brand.
VIZZ Headlamp - far superior
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have worn other headlamps for years and bought this on a whim. Stunning difference, especially for nighttime trail walking with bright, distant, wide views. I felt utterly safe on pitch dark nights. Also great for preparing food and inside the tent. Don't need hanging lamp anymore. I'm buying one for my husband.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I don't go anywhere without my Princeton Tec Vizz. Of all my headlamps, it is the one that always seems to find its way into my pack. It has been soaked and dropped and I never worry about it turning on when I need it. The button operation is easy with gloves on and the button lock feature has saved me many sets of batteries from unintentional ignition. Being able to adjust the LEDs allows your to maximize battery life and the red option keeps you seeing after the light is turned off. Overall, there isn't anything I would change about the Vizz.
Is this the 420 lumen one
Hey Ervin! This Priceton Tech Vizz is last years model, so it's max lumen output is 205. We do carry the 420 lumen version though, which you can find right here: <i> https://www.backcountry.com/princeton-tec-vizz-headlamp?skid=PRT001S-BK-ONESIZ&ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6dml6eiBoZWFkbGFtcHM6MTozOnZpenogaGVhZGxhbXBz </i>.
