A quick story about Princeton Tech! I had a 4 "AA" battery head lamp which was over 15 years old. However some of the pieces were broken off and the internal connectors were shot. Remembering it had a lifetime warranty I gave them a call and explained what was wrong. No questions asked, the guy said send it in and he will see what he could do.. About two weeks later, a box was at the door with a totally refurbished light! Awesome product, awesome customer service!

You can find some even brighter ones out there with Cree LEDs in them. The only thing is, you can never tell if they are blowing steam or not. Also they can be misleading when it comes to things like runtimes. Many lights say high lumens, X amount of life, but the life is usually rated for the lowest settings.

The 5.11 light is the highest quality one I have found that actually lasts 10.5 hours on high like it says.
