It's been said: super light, convenient and inexpensive. I always have one in my gear bag. I don't like the battery, but that's the price you pay for size and weight. The button works well and hasn't turned on in the bag yet. It's been bright enough when I've needed it. I don't use it very often so I'm still on the original battery after over 18 months. I wouldn't mind brightness settings.

Short burn time. Also the battery connections on mine keep working loose, so I have to rebend them to hold the battery tight enough to make the connection. Also, stupid battery is hard to find, and it's a bit pricey. Other than these, I have no complaints. Good stuff. Tiny, you hardly realize it's still on your head after a while. I always carry it in the pocket of my fleece for whatever.

I love my ions. I have one that stays in my long-climb bag, and another that I have in a cargo pocket just about everywhere I go. Has come in handy more times than I can count. They are no substitute for a full headlamp (I have the Myo 3), but for the few grams it weighs, there's no reason not to have one on you.

The product is good, but the batteries are a burn...! If you could get recharagable ones it wouldn't be so bad, but there are no rechargable 6v silver oxides that I've been able to find...

If you want a light weight and comfortable light this is the one. AND PRICED RIGHT. I had bought it for my girlfriend but have now have taken it over. It is sooo much more comfortable than my Aurora. THe only problem it the battery does not last as long as other lamps I have. The battery is a special one that cost about $6..
