To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The 5 stars for the brightness is my review score for the functions and settings, not that it's mega bright but the white light is bright, too bright for astronomy and the red light is quite bright too but doesn't damage your night vision. A really great bit of kit with everything thought of including an independent red light button so you don't need to scroll through the white light to get to the red. Sturdy, well built and very comfortable. Oh and you get 2!!!!
I do not usually review things like this so soon after purchase but these head torches are a great little buy. Simple controls with a range of light levels from bright white LEDs. No mucking about charging them up and running out of power half way through a job as they take good, old fashioned AAA batteries. Wide, comfortable and easily adjustable head band. Decent price as well. Top marks.
