I have the version of this that takes 3 AAs and it is quite good. No idea about this version, but if it's somewhat similar, it should be pretty decent.

I have 2 of the same headlamps with the same light mechanism as OP, both powered by 3 AA (instead of 1~2x 18650) too for use with NiMH (wasn't 100% converted to 18650 back then). Paid $8 for one then $6 for another in Dec/Jan, eBay shipped by China EMS/USPS Priority. Both are headlamps only with no battery/charger.

I bought it for the wide uniform beam and it didn't disappoint. The headlamp part is pretty chunky -- distance from your head is 2.5" retracted for wide beam, 3" extended for focused beam so I bumped it a few times doing closeup/closet plastering and painting. It uses a Cree XM-L LED emitter for an estimated 350~400'ish lumens output. Current draw is ~1.5A on high and ~0.4A on low. Amazon seller does not list LED emitter type (as if they could switch to a cheaper LED in the future) but customer pictures do seem to confirm XM-L.

As for the no-name batteries: a friend also bought another style GRDE branded headlamp from TOTOBAY Direct FBA with the same 2 gray GRDE branded 2200mAh Li-Ion batteries. Out of curiosity I tested (initial charge+discharge) both out of package on my BT-C3100. They measured a respectable 1912mAh and 1958mAh (capacity should increase a bit after a few use cycles). Obviously not as good as 2800~3400mAh Samsung/Panasonic but not overrated like those sub-1000mAh "UltraFire".

You can run OP's headlamp with 1 or 2 18650 cells since the battery slots are wired in parallel. Don't mix cells with vastly different state of charge (eg, one charged and one discharged) or one will end up charging another, possibly at a higher than safe current level).

For $13 with batteries, charger and FBA it's a good deal. At this price they're barely making any money, if at all, taken into account the items included, custom branding/packaging, Amazon shipping fees and return chargebacks (thanks to dumb customers most of the time), etc.

I purchased one of these before and was happy with the amount of lighting. Only complaint was the battery is not a universal like AA, AAA.

Other than that my son really loves wearing it around outside so it's been good for us.

I own one of these and they are very powerful and the bigger battery lasts more, the battery pack is in the back so it doesn't create much weight or anything, it actually feels really comfortable to wear

This. I ordered a cheapy headlamp like this from Amazon a while back and it came with two 4000mah Boruit cells. I tossed them in my Lii 500, more like 700mah lol. Also, on the wrapper it has warnings and says: Keep away from shildren.

Even with a quality sanyo or something I'd probably not wear that headlamp for long.
