I had one somewhat like this it was 6 volt and dimmable. I loved that light. Used it to pick Night crawlers for twenty-five years till it got stepped on and crushed and so was I. Does anybody know were to get a dimmable head lamp.

flashead.... how far does the beam from your new enegizer shine? I'm talking about a concentrated spot at ohhhh about 35 to 40 yards maybe. Im need to be able to see at some distance not 5 feet away. thanks

ALTHOUGH I HAVE THIS LIGHT..AN YES...IT WAS A GOOD LIGHT FOR ITS TIME...MY NEW ENERGIZER "1 WATT" LED HEADLIGHT IS FAR BRIGHTER THAN THIS AN WATERPROOF TOO...NOT TO MENTION IT GOES A LOT FURTHER ON SMALL BATTERIES....WHEN LEDS FIRST CAME OUT...YEAH...THEY STUNK...VERY WEAK LIGHTING...BUT NO MORE...MY 5 WATT STANLEY SPOTLIGHT CAN BLOW AWAY ANYTHING INCADESCENT, FLUORESCENT OR HALOGEN...SOMETHING TO CONSIDER...

FORGOT TO SAY...EVEN THOUGH THIS USES A BIG HEAVY BATTERY...THE BEAM IS MORE THAN WORTH IT...LIKE WEARING A SPOTLIGHT ON YUR HEAD...SEEMS TO SHINE HALF A MILE AT LEAST....I MODIFIED MINE TO USE 4 "D" BATTERIES INSTEAD OF THE HEAVIER, MORE EXPENSIVE 6 VOLT...BUT A GREAT LIGHT...GLAD I GOT ONE BEFORE THEY STOPPED MAKING IT...

I have a couple of these, with the original boxes AND the dark blue plastic battery pouches with a belt loop and the cloud logo. The reflectors take a flange-type bulb (Rayovac K13 krypton bulbs work REALLY good with these!) and have molded-in plastic lenses in front. The headpieces have a copper finish and the elastic bands are black.
