    $1 led headlamps

    For a buck with free shipping! These things might be total junk, but for a buck I'll take a chance. http://1saleaday.com/wireless/

    I bought a dozen of almost the same light (same make - 12 LEDs w/ 3 settings) for my webelos den ~ 18 months ago. The boys are now scouts & still use them. I just got in from a camp out & there were 5 boys using them last night. they take 3 AAA batteries & though a little big, they have held up well.

    I have a friend who is a fleet mechanic at work that has one, its not working very well at all after a few months but its under harder use with him i suppose.
    For a buck its worth a shot but i wouldn't depend on it exclusively out in the field. Plus maybe you can use the head strap for another light if it fails you, the head gear seems nice.

    I got one for my 3 year old niece. They sell it at the Dollarama in Ontario. Mine had a terrible plastic/shipping odour. It took a long while to off-gas. I ended up wiping it down with bleach, and drying in the sun for a few days. It lasted her a while before she broke the mounting bracket.

    Local Big Lots store usually has these for $5, so this is a good price. I keep extras in my car, by my bed and for the Scouts that forget lights.
    One thing- the straqps do STINK for a while.

    I got in on this also. Like Optimator said, for a buck you really cant go wrong. Even as a spare or to pass onto someone else who needs one on the next trip.
    Thanks for the heads up.
