      Comments about PRINCETON TEC Fuel 4 LED Headlamp:

      I really like this headlamp. Unfortunately, the plastic broke on the clip of the battery door. I have to use duck tape and rubber bands to keep the battery compartment closed to use it.

      That said, I really like it and will likely replace it with a new one.

      If you are from Princeton Tec feel free to contact me to replace it for free :-)

        Comments about PRINCETON TEC Fuel 4 LED Headlamp:

        I bought this two years ago for a weekend camping trip and was glad I had it during Hurricane Sandy. I also found if very useful for fixing things around the house in dim locations. BUT, like many others, I was disappointed when I noticed the battery door latch had cracked. I had only changed the batteries three times before and had always used the tool on the headband to open the latch. Yet, it cracked and while it still works, I know it won't survive another battery change or two. I really would like replace it with another P-Tec product, but this has made me wary. It's a shame because other than the latch, this is a very nice headlight.

        Issues With Batery Door

          Comments about PRINCETON TEC Fuel 4 LED Headlamp:

          I purchased a few of these for family after hurricane Sandy. I returned them because the battery door latch was difficult to open. It required something to pry it open. In the cold and darkness of an extended power outage, I don't see this as being desirable. The latch itself seemed brittle and possibly prone to breaking from using a screwdriver or butterknife to pry it open. This is a great company but a bad design. I returned all 4 and got Petzl Tikkas instead. The latch opens much easier with a finger while remaining water resistant.

                I bought two of these, for myself and for my son. Mine worked well enough last hunting season until I went to replace the battery when the latch that keeps the battery compartment shut broke off. I didn't think much of it until this past month when son returned from Alaska. Due to it being light about 21 hours a day, he never used it but when he unpacked his pack...the latch on the battery compartment was broken. The only problem piece of equipment in 2 weeks of backpacking. I give kudos to the Dulles store manager who didn't hesitate to give a full credit which I immediately applied to a Petzl.

                  I bought two of these for my sons. One works pretty well. It's comfortable and bright. One big complaint we have with that one is that it's hard to push the button to adjust the brightness while it's on your head.
                  The other one I bought promptly broke. The plastic guide for the head band snapped off rendering it useless. I was very unimpressed with the quality.

                        The light works fine, just be aware that the "latch" for the battery compartment is very thin, and not very durable plastic. My son was given one and we are now on our third one, the previous 2 have cracked in the same spot, and not from misuse.
                        I would not recommend this to someone who has this as their only source of light and might need to change the battery during a trip.
