I find it sort of funny? ironic? that a major distributor of electronics has paid for positioning itself on the right side of my Woot Page offering me 9, 15, and 25 million candlepower flashlites for $54.66, $49.99 and $129.99 ! The 25 million candlepower unit, from the looks of it, needs a separate trailer with electric brakes to cart behind me in my jeep!



Ads? Woot has ads? I don't see no steenking ads. Oh wait, AdBlock Plus, that's why.

Yea plug in your bluetooth ear piece and get a mohawk haircut and really look like a Dork. I have ordered one ,just because it was a great price and reviews are good.Don't need one often , but for 15 bucks , why not.

I love the comments about how uncool it looks to have a light on your head. I often struggle with my chronic un-coolness, and wish that at age 52 I could look as cool as all those awesome guys with their 17-pocket jeans that ride 4 inches below the cheeks, their Necrophagist Flaming Zombie-Skull tattoos (hey, now THAT's really unique!) and their drive-through hula-hoop earlobe holes. Hey wait, I've got it!!! Maybe they could make a flashlight that attaches to a nipple-ring!

Let me tell you, Holmes; catch a 40-inch snook at night under a dock lit by a halogen streetlight and then you'll know the true meaning of the word KEWL.

I know my energizer is "only" 100 lumens, but boy is it bright (and sits very comfortably on the head too)! This one... 150, and for the same price? Have I been cheated, or is there more than just lumens to it?



No, you haven't been cheated. A 100 lumen 1 watt LED is fine for most household chores. And the batteries should last longer. I do have a 3 watt flashlight (running off ONE AA battery!), however, and it's incredibly bright. Even more amazing is a single AA LED flashlight that supposedly runs at 10 watt. I don't know if the numbers are true but do know that it's the brightest flashlight I have, far surpassing my 5 watt nightlight bulbs.

I know this comment is coming late in the woot!, but please, for the love of all things lovable, do NOT wear this headlight in the same area in which Wootoff lights are operating. You know what happens? You don't want to know what happens. Bad stuff.

Is it good for working on cars for a professional mechanic? I owe mine a gift, already gifted the Stanley 3 bulb flashlight on a tripod and he loves it. This might seal the deal for this year's gifts as he works on my extra vehicle that isn't under warranty. Tks.

It looks like your order was denied- after you went through all the steps it should have told you it was denied and given you reasons why that might have been.

My account doesn't indicate that it has shipped yet. I have a camping trip 15 days after i ordered this and really hope it arrives by then. I know that you can't count on timely shipping with woot, but 15 days seems like plenty of time. I have my fingers crossed.

Sounds like you are visiting places you need to stay away from. I am sure the light was not the reason you got a butt kicking. Maybe being at the wrong place at the wrong time had something to do with it.

It could be that FedEx got the info too late to update their system before the weekend. Give it until Monday. If there's still no update, feel free to email service@woot.com

Mine arrived yesterday! I'm just down the road from Woot W.H.Q., so things don't have to travel far. There are no instructions in the package, so it took a little experimentation to figure out how to open the battery compartment. If you hold the battery pak with the Remington logo facing you (the cord will be on right side), press down on the left end and twist the top away from you, and it will pop off. Getting it back on is a little more difficult, but once you get the feel for it, it's not tough. Have fun getting the head bands on; they're a snug fit in those little plastic clips.

Light intensity is very good... now to go find me some dripping blood to track!

Mine just arrived. As a previous poster mentioned, there are no instructions. I was able to get the battery compartment open and closed, but it's a bit flimsy and I'm guessing this will break after a few battery changes... which will kill the product.

The head band comes in three parts. I'm sure it won't be that hard to figure out, but it is amazing that they don't give you any instructions. Bush league.

Yes, on the front the intensity is amazing. I was hoping the back red flashing LED would be bright as well; but it's not bright enough for safe biking.

Don't forget that it won't work until you figure out the battery box and remove the cardboard card that prevents wasting batteries. It's packed in a blister pack and I don't think anyone could push the buttons anyway. The three strap pieces are definitely a pain to attach.

Mine arrived today. It seems a little stupid that it didn't come with at least a small instruction card indicating how to change the batteries (or to remove the cardboard from the battery compartment). Once I found out how to get the battery compartment open it worked great and I'll definitely be getting a lot of use out of it. And as a previous poster mentioned, the straps were a real b!%ch to get on too, but that's a minor nitpick.

Yeah, you're right. The rear LED doesn't seem very bright. I will have to take it out on the street and see how the visibility is under real conditions.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone in the production facility realized that they had forgotten to include instructions.

Considering that Woot sold 9000 of them I'm assuming that it was cheaper to sell them to woot as distressed merchandise rather than break open all the blister packs to insert instructions.
