This little head lamp taks a licking and keeps on ticking. I held off on the review for a few months to really put it though it's paces and I couldn't be happier. The battery life on the device is outstanding, and it has a very solid beam (none of that "ring" nonsense you sometimes get with cheap products). My only gripe is sometimes the power selector can be a pain to toggle between, especially with gloves on. Other than that small hiccup, this is an outstanding item.
This light has been my go-to headlamp for 8 months now and I have taken it on countless backpacking trips since then. It is indeed a great light, good distance, water resistance and brightness plus a super useful red light so you don't blind your companions, and cheap compared to lights with similar features. However, the battery dies faster than any other headlamp I have used. I would recommend it to a friend but I would stress the importance of extra batteries because trust me, it's shocking how fast they run out. One feature I really like is that when angling it down it doesn't separate from the band and give that annoying floppy effect, plus it's super small and light but the space and weight you save is taken up by the extra batteries (can't stress that enough). For this reason I would recommend this for short trips instead of long through hikes. It has served me well on my weekenders all year but I think I need a new one for the through hike I'm planning this summer.
This is a great little light, I was really surprised that this had less reviews then it's big brother (PTEC Fuel).I was given this light from a friend and have been using it for over a year now. It's a light weight light, fits easy in your pocket without feeling like you've got a pocket full of change. The different light modes are a great feature, red light is useful for reading maps and keeping your eyes adjusted to the dark. You can adjust the light up or down with out it coming away from the base of the head strap. I'm a wildland firefighter I've put it through some pretty harsh environments and it's held up great. It has the same burn time as the FUEL and is brighter by 7 lumens. The BYTE also uses one less battery then it's big brother FUEL so it weighs less. All in all I would recommend this light, I'm going to be purchasing this light again in the future.
