Well first off, don't get the Pulsar II LED light.
It turned itself on in my pocket and the next time I checked, the light was so dull I could not read the words on a paper. I have only had it for about 4 days too.


So a specific warning against that particular type of keychain light.
Also a general warning to check any type of light to see if it can switched on in a pocket or such. Avoid ones with crappy buttons like the Pulsar, perhaps consider a proper torch.

Bah, what a waste of $25.

I like a good simple head lamp...though it makes me look like a miner, it is easy and hands free!

I might be wrong on if it was that particular model, but I believe they have a Pulsar 3 now that was made specifically because of that problem and is harder to turn on, or the switch is a different setup or something.

Just something to throw out there.
