    the EOS is a nice head lamp but I find it a bit too focused (beam to narrow) for putzing around the campsite after dark - I use a Quad instead - either one can use lithium batteries however so both are better than my old Aurora which I managed to damage using lithium batteries

    i made a diffuser (from instructions on jim wood's base camp i believe).
    it makes it softer & a little less focused... better for reading in the hammock<g>.

    The best headlamp I have owned to date is the Petzel E+Lite. You can see a video here.

    I have been meaning to start a thread about the headlamp with some pics. What I love about it:

    *Small and compact
    *Weighs 27 grams including batteries
    *Waterproof
    *Has red LED
    *VERY veristile.
    *Good battery life (45 hours low, 35 hours high)

    One of the best features is it's ability to swivel 360* and has a built in clip so you can wear it on you head, clipped to hat or shirt, free standing, or around your wrist. The headlamp is perfect for a hammock because you can clip it on your ridge line and move the light any direction you want. I clip it just above my head and point the light toward my feet so that at no time does the light shine directly in my eyes. Great for reading. I also like the red LED. If I turn the light on when getting up for bathroom breaks the RED is not blinding as the 3 super bright LEDs.
    “Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it." -Terry Pratchett

    headchange, that is the exact same light that I use and I love it. Energizer makes something like it for $5 but it is nothing like it, the energizer doesn't have the options or the power. I bought mie for $30, and I take it everywhere. I had to hike 2 miles in the dark a month ago and it worked great. I now recommend it to everyone.
