Work Handsfree with the ICON Irix II Headlamp

A good light source is something everyone needs – not just gadget-lovers.  Maybe you have a hobby that requires the use of both hands, like fly-tying or jewelry making.  Maybe you get a flat-tire at night and don’t have AAA – and no one to hold a flashlight so you can see to change the tire.  Whatever your need, the ICON Irix II can shed some light on it.  The lightweight polymer body contains 5 high-efficiency LEDs.  The Irix II is powered by a single AA alkaline battery (included); ICON says you can expect up to 100 hours from a battery.  Light output is adjustable from 5 to 50 lumens; range is 6.5 to 49 feet.  The headband is adjustable for a comfortable fit.  I found the ICON Irix II available at Radio Shack for $29.99.

    I would suggest that you consider a much better value for a headlight. The Fenix HL20 is waterproof, puts out 105 lumens throws a beam 210 feet and cost only a few dollars more. It also operates on a single AA battery. Here is the link.
    I have several of their flashlights and they are all amazing. Very high quality, exceptional output, and all great values.
