Have been using this headlamp professionally for over a year now and it is great light, however the included 18650 battery is junk. You will need to spend around $10 for a decent 3000mAh battery to get the most out of this. Great price for the light, bought a second one for around the house.

Recommendations on batteries? What makes them bad?

Fenix lights are some of the best imported lights and have great warranty support.

I believe the included battery is only 2000-2500mAh, Good for a home gamer but will not last long on medium or high mode. You can get a high quality panasonic 3400mAh for about $8 a piece

Yeah, it says 2000 lumens, but it's probably closer to 500 laugh out loud

The fenix and nitecore headlamps are of extremely good build quality. Like most of the cheap junk chinese headlamps I've purchased in the past, I'm sure that $13 lamp is complete crap.

As far as I know, Fenix doesn't even sell any 18650 batteries under 2600mah anymore. I do agree that it makes sense to pickup some 3400-3500mah batteries. The less swapping you're doing out in the woods, the better.

Fantastic deal. Decided to order two as backups to my nitecore (paid more from gearbest without warranty).

This is like half the price of other retailers. I'm surprised this deal hasn't gone FP already.

Fenix makes good stuff. That said, if you're looking for a good headlamp I'd recommend an "L" type light like the Nitecore HC30 that you can use well in hand too.

Regardless of what you buy, a good waterproof headlamp is *fantastic* for doing electrical work when you've got breakers shut off and no light.

Fenix is a good brand. They replaced and repaired 2 of my flashlights free of charge. No receipts required. I just paid 1 way shipping to return the defective products to their service center.

Website has 6 Fenix models on sale for 50% off. Most are older models but still solid deals. This HL60R is the best deal though, since it's the latest model.
