I have mainly seen them used for camping, but I'm sure people have other uses for them. They help a lot when setting up a tent or cooking at night when camping.

Headlamps can be used anytime you may need a flashlight. It frees up your hands so they can do other stuff or kept warm in pockets. I have some very nice flashlights that don't get used since headlamps are superior in every way.

I prefer my lights to be able to use 18650 lithium ion batteries for longer run time. This one seems overpriced at $25 when you can get decent ones for $15 from amazon that run off 18650s.

But 18650 batteries attached to your head and when it's wet outside? I'm not sure about that!EEK!

Hi RonParada. These can be used in a variety of situations. We use them for running - as we're a running company - but I have also been known to use them for camping, DIY work under the sink in the dark! More useful than you can imagine! ~ the JackRabbit Crew

Looks like this would be good for fishing cause this smells a little fishy.

These are for the sports crowd. For example running. For general use you will consider it overpriced but for what it is intended it is a very good price based on feature set.

The Tikka XP is the real deal (Not sure why it's HP on the website, should be a typo), not the tikka.
BTW these are IPX4 rated I believe, will survive heavy rainfall but no submerge. That's why it's "overpriced"
Not really an impressive deal, no offense op. Petzl are on sale now or then on every outdoor shop and can go lower If you are in need for the XP, it's not bad.

Not a great deal. You can similar headlamps for @$10 on Amazon.

If you want more versatility, try getting a tiny flashlight that comes with a head strap like this one for $19

Sure why not? The 18650s last forever at low brightness and still a long time at full brightness. With 3xAAA batteries, you have maybe 700 mAH. With 2x18650s you have 5,000 mAH or more. To save weight, I usually use only 1x18650 for running.

3.7v isn't enough to shock you, your skin provides more resistance than that even wet.

12v batteries are pretty well harmless even though movies portray otherwise, two 12v batteries in series has potential to cause damage if you were wet.

If it's explosions you're worried about them buy quality protected cells.

No.

If you think that, go ahead and hook yourself up to a car battery and let me know how that goes. Cited post was dumb, but you managed to take it to a whole new level where we don't account for current.

V=IR... R goes down with wet skin and V is constant so I goes up. Not sure how low of resistance wet skin goes and how high of voltage is needed to generate dangerous current. DC has different effects in the body than AC?

Depends on where in the body too. Brain might be a bad path. Anyone know what kind of voltage differential on an AED?
