Just want all to know I found a 9 volt led ball hat that makes any job
easier as my hands are free to work and I do not have to worry about a
flashlight. This hat is extremely bright and I bought it for $19.95 from
I have used it in the attic, power outages and while working on my
electrical panel. Great idea, great light! It comes with 3 batteries. The
batteries can be bought at any dollar store, three for one dollar.
I just bought three Brinkman 5 LED headlights (not caps with lights) for
$15. THREE of them. I'm not really sure of how far it shines. <g> Oh,
mine has two strengths, and a blinker for either safety or to confuse the
bullfrog you're trying to catch. Maybe I should have saved up and gotten
one of those really good ones. WITH a hat.
Not as hard to believe as ppl falling for the scam that led lights are
as bright or brighter than incandescents, and ppl being stupid enough
to pay $100+ for the ruse.
To paraphrase ol' Barnum, the turnip truck will never lack for
I went and bought some Brinkman 5 LED headstrap lights the other day, a
three pack. The choice is mindboggling. At least, they state the lumens
ratings, which makes it a little easier to get an idea of the performance.
Two weeks ago, I had never heard of a lumen.
Then you will probably be interested to know that a lumen is:
a unit of luminous flux equal to the amount of light given out through
a solid angle of 1 steradian by a point source of 1 candela intensity
radiating uniformly in all directions
I'm sure that's on there somewhere, but I just cut to the chase and look for
the lumen number, and that simplifies it for me. The bigger the number, the
more light it puts out. I figured that out and didn't even have to ask the
cute little salesgirl. But now, I'll memorize the definition, and go in and
shop some more, and when I ask about "lumen", I will have something to
dazzle her. Maybe she's turned on by smart old farts who talk in words she
doesn't understand. Some women like it when you talk like that. Or talk in
other ways, too.................... <g>
