>the idea of being able to carry something smaller and lighter than the headlamp that I current use, but I can't get around the hands-free operation of headlamps. It's simply much nicer to use it without hands than to have something lighter.
Even if this were the lightest light known to man, had unlimited battery life, and produced enough light to hike by night, I would still prefer a headlamp.<
Just attached it to your hat/hood brim with a velcro dot and voila.. u have headlamp.
Roger, the only thing I dont like about it is that you cant use a >3v battery to recharge. Its sad.. mUV has been around for over a year and it can do that. I think it would be really nice if it could be recharged via UL 3.7v li-ion batteries, especially if I were carrying a cell phone anyways.
