Site says 150 lumen, packaging says 80 lumen. Comparing to another 100 lumen light here , I'm siding with the 80. The cree led says XP At the same store you will not find 6 alkaline batteries for less than this. They come with 2 nice lights.
At the HD near me they had a whole display box full of these. I did not buy because of limited funds and so many good deals. I also am not a fan of wearing hats or anything on my head. Just me but if your in ABQ NM you will find many.
These are pretty bright. The light can be tilted up and down only. There is a cushy pad to go against your forehead. The tough part is depressing the two tabs on each side to disassemble the module to insert/replace batteries. Those tabs are small and stiff!
On The same retailers site it claims the energizer battery mha spec is 2778 for AA and 1250 for AAA. That is closer to 2X than 3X and to be more accurate 2.2X the battery life. Real life experiences may prove different and chemistry could be a factor. The AA cells are actually cheaper than the AAA cells so this pushes the value to 3X. Then one would need to consider the size of this thing stuck on your head and the value of a smaller battery in that use model.
