The Vango 5 LED Headtorch weighs 70g; 5 white LEDs; tilting head with good ratchet locking system; 2 power settings plus strobe; uses 3 AAA batteries (not supplied); max burn time 30 hours; outstanding price for performance, quality.
But lacks build quality of pricier products; lacks battery level indicator; light beam not as clean as others.
The Vango 5 LED Headtorch offers incredible performance for the price and it will do what many campers and walkers want: bargain!
