    LED head lamps. Need one for night fishing I got couple but I am hoping someone can put me on one with the features I want. Need be able adjust the lamp up and down. Want one that has on off switch without going through all of its different modes/features. Would like be able to set it on one type of lighting and be able to just turn it on and off.

    :tounge_out: I have one you turn it on to 2 led and then to turn it off you have to switch to 3 led then red led and then strobe and then off.

    No details that I can find on Internet about how various lights operate.

    Any suggestions. Thanks for the info.

    Yeah, they all got too fancy. I had to steal my kids lights that they bought at the checkout aisle of WallyWorld cause it turns on, it turns off, and nothing in between. It also goes up and down, but only when my head does also.

    I like the headlights made by eveready. The cheap one it sales for
    about 9 dollars. The switch goes right /red led, center/ off, left/ white
    led. I fish with the white light and use the red to get out of the woods
    when hunting. The more expensive one have about 5 settings and
    there is no backing up, once you start you have to go through all
    5 settings to turn it off.

    Buy a zebralight. One click to high mode or one long click to low mode. All with just one button. It's the best interface that I have seen. They're machined out of aluminum, not some junk plastic. Well worth the $ imo.

    John, I use one that comes from walmart. I think it's an everready; has a bright white spot, white led, and red led settings that won't affect your night vision much. Sells for around $15, I think.
