Another great Father's Day gift idea is the headlamp by #SABSBA that I recently received for a #ProductReview. The lamp comes with its own set of rechargable batteries which are charged and ready right out of the package. Here's what I love about the rechargeable batteries - the battery pack comes with a charger cable with a wall plug so you don't even have to remove them from the casing to charge them. Essentially you just plug in the DC cable to the battery pack on the back of the headlamp elastic when you're not using it.
The headlamp has three light options. The first click brings you to the brightest one, a second click of the button dims the light a bit and the third is a flashing light. I have used this headlamp in some up close work and the bright setting was so bright that it literally washed out the colors and some of the details on the item I was working on. I can only imagine how well it would work for long distances. The dimmer setting really isn't dim, just less bright relative to the bright setting. It works well for close up work and for moderate lighting of far areas.
Honestly I hate the flashing light that walkers and bikers wear at night. With my ADHD the light is constantly distracting to me and I have to work really hard to focus on where I am driving. I understand the concept that it shows it is a person, not a vehicle, but I think it is more trouble than it is worth. And when wearing it while walking or biking, isn't it hard to see clearly? I don't mind when the flashing light is red because it isn't as bright, does not pull my full attention away from driving and wearing one would not impede my ability to see where I am going. That being said, I could see where it could come in handy if someone lost, and staying where they were in order to be found, was wearing one...like in the forest. Regardless, it is the custom and the flashing function on this headlamp works quite well.
This would be great for night time grillers, night time walkers and bikers, campers, do it yourselfers, etc. Basically anyone who would need a close up or far reaching light that allows both of your hands to be free.
I received this product at a discount or free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
