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.

      Actually I haven't taken it camping yet but as I was painting the walls (up where you cut against the ceiling) it has changed everything. Light exactly where I need it! The nastiest of jobs made 60% easier.

        Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel Headlamp:

        I went on a two day practice hike for my AT thru-hike and ended up hiking for an hour in the dark. When I first got the lamp I thought it was too bright even at its lowest setting but it was perfect for hiking in the dark. I'm very happy with my purchase. I haven't used it long enough to test the battery life but I'm very happy with it so far.

        I gave my three sons, ages 7 - 13, each one for Christmas 2013. They love them!

        Some reviewers have complained about the battery cover coming off. I haven't found a problem with this. There is a battery cover pry-tab built into the headstrap adjuster, which can be used to open the cover easily. I'm guessing the complainers DIDN'T READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!

                Some negative comments about the battery replacement issues- doesn't matter- just buy two- for this price it is not a problem- one breaks, use the other one.
