Free, how could I say no to that

vote-for3vote-against

these things are crap, just sayin

vote-for1vote-against

I did not see any other crap I wanted so I passed on the free crappy lights

I actually paid for these on the site a few weeks back. They are ve.ry bright and decent. Definatly worth paying for shipping

vote-for8vote-against

they're decent for "free"

sarcasm aside, i really do think they're decent. i use them when i'm working in close quarters in the dark. i don't recommend them for any other use because they're not actually that bright.

looks like something my 11yo would enjoy (he's a weird little kid)...is it too early to start stashing this year's Christmas presents?

One person says they are bright, one person says they aren't :-) Which is it?

Let's say I wanted to do some night time shoe shoeing. Is one of these bright enough to let me see where I'm going (maybe 10' ahead of me), or is it only good to use as a reading light?

In for these, since they're going to be helpful for working underneath my car. I am not expecting quality at all, but can't beat the price (just $4.99 shipping). Most headlamps go from $20 - $50 on the REI website, and the most expensive is $175. I would not rely on this free set for anything where visibility is important, like snowshoeing.

I have them if you are in total darkness and need light they worked well for me.
Better than holding a flashlight in one hand and trying to accomplish your task one handed. When I only need one hand I use it as a flashlight =]

I recently bought a set of the 7-LED variants. They fit well, stay on my head, and make good work lights when I'm downstairs in the shop., I can keep bright light right on what I'm working on.

There's a button on the ones I have that adjusts intensity, by turning on LEDs in groups. (1, 3, or 7) Is this one just on/off, or can you adjust its intensity? Anyone know what battery life is like for these, and what batteries they take? (mine take 3xAAA and last quite awhile)

@kmeltzer: I'm not sure what "shoe shoeing" is.

Is that where you run around "shooing" other people's shoes off your lawn? ;)

Regardless of one's shoe-chasing fetish, these lights are garbage; dim, fit your head poorly, etc.

Free is too much!

vote-for3vote-against

These aren't too bad for free/super cheap. I bought some that are very similar and I use them all the time; working in dark/tight quarters, camping, taking the dog for a walk at night, etc.

As for shoe-shoeing, I'm going to assume that you meant snow-shoeing. Yeah, they would be fine for that.

They always have this deal on that site. Why is it at the top of the Woot Deals!?

I have one I got from Fry's Electronics a few years back, which has 7 LEDs available in 1-3-7-flash all modes. It's bright enough to get 10-15 feet of usable vision in dim to very dark ambient light, through it's no competition for even my LED 2-AA Maglite. The 3xAAA batteries do last a long time, though; I use it for three or four hours four or five times a year doing fireworks and I just replaced the batteries the first time last week. Two for $5 shipping is a pretty good deal. It's not as comfortable as I'd like, nor as bright, but it's still a quite decent light especially for the price.

Had a set of these. Not worth free. They should pay you to take them.

vote-for2vote-against

Bright enough to see things, not super bright so it can run all night long. It's a bit heavy due to the 3 x AAA.

vote-for3vote-against

We use a few of these (same brand and build) around our house. They're fine. Cheap build, but fine.

vote-for4vote-against

I got about 4 of these last time the deal was this good. No regrets. To the folks that don't like them; your welcome to buy ONE at $20-30 bucks at a techy-camper store. No issues with the batteries, They are about as bright as a regular bright flash light. I use for bike riding, working on car, house repair, and letting the kids use them. This is the same light I will pick up just to have a flash light in my hand besides using it hands free.

I bought one of these awhile back when I was buying some Christmas stuff. I don't know if I just got a bad one or if they're cheap pieces of crap but mine didn't work and I didn't get a response from 13 Deals back about it either. No deal for me.

vote-for2vote-against

I have had these for a little over a year. I ordered a bunch of stuff from 13 deals for Christmas presents last year and these came free and the shipping was a flat rate for everything I ordered so all in all a good deal.

These are not the greatest headlamp. I have a nicer version that is much better than these but it was also 25 bucks. I lost the battery cover on that one so I picked up these. Mine had a weird mechanic/garage type smell to them when I took them out of the package but that went away with time. Otherwise they are pretty decent for $2.50 each. They have an 'on', 'flashing', and 'off' setting. Not too terribly bright, but they do the trick around the house and yard when I need hands free lighting.

I should also mention that I just saw these exact headlamps in the dollar section of Target a couple of weeks ago.

I have seen these at Target in the dollar deal section. There were a few left, however most of them were missing parts (battery cover, lens cap) or were damaged. I decided against getting one because they are so fragile.
