Energizer High Performance Headlight

Brand: Energizer

Model: High Performance

This durable headlamp pumps out 200 lumens, unheard of for a sub-$40 model. “On a moonless night in Arizona, the spot beam stretched 75 yards on high while I was gathering kindling,” says one tester. Two big buttons make toggling between four modes (high/low spot, high/low flood) easy, even with gloves on. Run time tested at 32 hours (on high). Gripe: It’s bulky. $38; 3.8 oz.; 3 AAAs; energizer.com
