LED Clip-On Light, retail $TBA

The CL-191 headlamp is a small, good looking LED headlamp that fits on your head with a two point elastic, adjustable strap, and features a white LED with a lens to focus the beam. You can either use it as a headlamp, or as a clip-on light - you decide how to use it.

The unit operates from two CR2016 lithium coin cells, which are included and already installed in the unit.

It is advertised to use a 5mm Nichia white LED.


This headlamp fits your head by means of an adjustable elastic strap. The strap can be adjusted with a sliding buckle and loop arrangement; there is no loose end to get in the way or hang uncomfortably.

Once you have the light adjusted and on your head, turn the bezel (head) clockwise to turn the unit on, and turn it counterclockwise to turn it off.

You can adjust the aim of the light by tipping the LED section down or up. The ability to aim the headlamp exactly where you need it is definitely a plus.

Light attached to a Phoam Head Phread, as you might actually use it.

You can also remove the headstrap from this light and clip it to a baseball hat or similar; using the spring-loaded clip that's already a part of the product.

Light attached to a baseball hat on a Phoam Head Phread - the strap on the headlamp was removed.

To change the batteries, unscrew & remove the bezel (the part with the light in it), gently place the body of the unit (the part with the headstrap) on the ground, and kick it into the garden so the hungry, hungry praying mantids will think it's something yummy to eat and subsequently strike at it...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Inside the bezel are two CR2016 lithium coin cells, Tip them out, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert two new CR2016 cells into the opening, orienting them so their flat-ends (+) positives face up.

Screw the bezel back onto the body (holding it lens-end toward the floor so the batteries don't just tumble out), and back it off slightly when your headlamp springs to life - don't want to waste those brand spanken new batteries ya know.
Aren't you glad you didn't kick that body into the garden with all those hungry, hungry praying mantids now?

I found this guy on the morning of 09-08-06 clinging to the basket of my scooter.

Current usage measures 77.7mA on my DMM's 400mA scale.

According to the packaging, battery lifetime is 16 hours; with the first two hours at maximum intensity.

The headlamp is of all-plastic construction; normally I would not normally administer "The Smack Test", but since this product is so small & light (pun not intended), I performed that test. I gave it ten whacks against the concrete floor of a patio (five whacks against the top and five whacks against the bottom), and found the expected damage. There is some minor gouging on the top & bottom of the bezel where it was struck. No optical or electrical malfunctions were detected.

A foam pad on the back of the light cushions your forehead, so the light is comfortable to use. And because the batteries are so small and lightweight, the light does not have that odd, front-heavy feel to it like some other headlamps have.

This headlamp is probably not very water resistant (even though there is an O-ring on it), so you'll want to be reasonably careful around lakes, streams, rivers, tubs, sinks, toilets, fishtanks, or other places where water might be found. It's fine for fairweather camping & hiking and for around-the-house, but might not do so well in heavy rainstorms like hurricanes. Keep it dry, and it ought to serve you well for a long time.

The light from the white LED is focused by a lens moulded into the protective plastic window; this allows it to "throw" farther than white LEDs with no lenses in front of them. The light is focused into a circle-shaped beam with sharp edges, not too unlike that produced by a Brinkmann Long Life LED flashlight.
