The innovative Fuel Headlamp meets the widest range of applications while remaining small, lightweight and robust. With all of the touch points of the Fuel being considered, its smart design fulfills technology's promise of actually making our lives easier. What could be better than a light that weighs only 78g with 43 lumens of brightness and 160 hours of burn time? It's a light that also has an asymmetrical single arm bracket that makes directing the light effortless and reliable, a large easy to find push button switch and a virtually bulletproof, easy access battery door that protects the 3AAAs and its electronics.
  • Ratchet allows for easy rotation to adjust the direction of the beam.
  • Power: 43 lumens.
  • Lamp: 3 ultrabright LEDs.
  • Burn Time: 160 hours.

        This is a replacement for another one I bought my son. The gray mount that mounts the light to the fabric headband broke too easily. Other than that, it is a great little headlamp!

            Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel Headlamp:

            I have had several Princeton Tec Fuel Headlamps. They are inexpensive, lightweight, and are great for a host of tasks/activities. I do a lot of night fishing, hunting and this is a great light source. I also keep one in my car for emergencies as it's better than a flashlight. Most of my friends and relatives have gotten one as a gift too.

              Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel Headlamp:

              Uses two AAA's meaning you can use rechargable batteries with a small 12v recharger. Small enough to carry conveniently. Less light output that a 3-battery light, but more than enough for most uses.

                Good for night camping in general. As a Home Improvement Contractor I also use it to do under-cabinet basement or attic work where there is no good light source.

                Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel Headlamp:

                Great headlight, and made in the USA! Lasts a long time on 3 AAA batteries, light weight and care-free. The only negative I have is that the battery compartment latch will break if horsed with too much. But.. if the latch breaks you can just used a heavy rubber band the the light will still work great and be waterproof. I've used one this way for over 2 years! Overall not the best headlight, but for the price they are absolutely wonderful. We own a farm, and used about a dozen of these headlights for several hours per day in the summer, and over 5 hours per day in the winter. I have yet to have one fail, and I have been used them for years. I did have one DOA right out of the box when new, but Campmor replaced it no questions asked right away. The replacement worked great of course.
