Not Just For Kids

What started as a gift for our 2 yr. old has become a family favorite. It stays put, is very comfortable, and puts out nice light for such a little lamp. The older members of our family have more powerful lamps, but we end up using this one all the time because it's so small and slips easily into a pocket. It's also perfect for reading because it's very light and comfortable for extended use. We live and camp in the heart of bear country and it's important to have decent light for middle of the night trips to the restroom and this little lamp does great. It does require a mini screwdriver (which anyone who has kids or wears glasses already has) but it's not a downside at all compared to how handy it is!! We actually just ordered a couple of extra so that our 2 yr old can have his back. Great find! Thank you Grandma and Papa!
Big Sky Mom at REI on 09/09/2011

I bought this kids headlamp for my 7 year old who is going on her first backpacking trip soon. Getting those 2 AAA batteries in this thing was like a crazy puzzle. Because it's marketed for a child who (apparently) is prone to removing the batteries and eating them, I guess? It comes with a tiny screw driver to loosen a tiny screw to open and close the battery compartment. Who's going to take this little screw driver with them everywhere this headlamp goes?! Why didn't they make it a flat head screw so you can use your leatherman tool or maybe a dime to open and close it?! Anyway, the screw was the first thing we removed and threw away. It works fine without it. Otherwise, easy to use the power button. It's just on/ off and the strap adjusts easily too.

Wendy Campbell Smith at on 08/26/2011

I am no kid, but I use it a lot. It is simple and lightweight, perfect for working around camp. It doesn't have a long range, it is useful when working with your hands. The battery lasts a lot and it is very resistant.
It is not waterproof and the headband could get loose if you use for running or a bumpy activity.
The batteries need a small screwdriver to get changed but I took / lost my screw a while back and use it without it. It doesn't fall apart and I prefer the easy access to the battery tray.

Great headlamp

I bought two of these, one for my 5 yr old nephew and another one for my 2 1/2 yr old niece. They love them! I am looking into introducing them both into camping this summer, and these headlamps have gotten them really interested in going... Only downside to these is the tiny little screwdriver that you need to open the battery compartment. As long as you put it in a safe place where you'll remember where it is, it will be fine.
Chris Adventure at REI on 02/02/2012

Works great

After reading the comments below, I decided to buy the product for my 2-year-old daughter. She loves it, and the strengths given by the other reviewers hold true. The negative given by the others was the small screw that needs to be undone to change the batteries. Great news: this is NOT a problem. When you put the batteries in for the first time (using the small screw driver provided), just DON'T re-tighten the screw! The battery compartment snaps shut anyway!
Thomas the rock guy at REI on 03/03/2012

Love this little headlamp...

My boys love this headlamp. We have been the proud owners for a few years now...very sturdy. Wonderful bright light, and adjustable for their heads. They love wearing them in bed at night to read. It's also nice that the battery is not one of the button-cell types (expensive to replace), just 2 AAA batteries. And for all those reviews complaining about the small great that Black Diamond includes a small screw driver!!!!

boy mom at REI on 10/10/2011

Grabbed a couple of these to have as extras for when I go camping with my nephews. They're fully functional, basic headlamps just shrunk down a bit.
They have a screw closure (so little 'uns can't open these up and try to eat the batteries), but other than that they're pretty similar to a grown up model. With the adjustable headband, an adult could probably even use it in a pinch.

Joshua Barnes at on 10/12/2013

My little one got one of these for Christmas and she loves it. The fact it comes in pink and her size was a big plus. She has fun playing with it all over the house and when we are camping. It is plenty bright for her needs of navigating in the dark or going on some little adventure.
One pain is changing batteries, is it requires a screw driver.

Joshua Moore at on 01/22/2011

These can usually be found at a fair price. Good little lamp. My daughter loves it. As noted, the batteries must be changed using a little screwdriver. As long as you know that, the rest is great. I assume there is a reason for it, being a kids lamp and all.
Great for kids. Simple to use. Bright enough for basic night time tasks.
I would recommend to my friends.

shaun Moyes at on 08/11/2013

It's a comfortable fit and I love all the colors and patterns. The light range is pretty good! I love that the light will automatically go off after 4 hours, there are many times I forget to turn it off. It's kinda a pain to change the batteries, that is my only con.

Negative Reviews:

my wife and I have 20 plus years between us leading extensive wilderness trips. We have learned to trust that black diamond makes quality gear. more than once I could say that I owe my continued life to black diamond gear.
We have two young girls so when we saw your headlamp marketed to kids we were sure that it would be a home run. It is, it is simple, bright, light weight and it fits their heads.
The packaging at Christmas was immediately chucked. When attempting to install the battery we were struck hard and fast. screw access to the battery necessitating a very small screwdriver (included)?
1. are we expected to carry the thing in the field? and not lose it into a creek etc
2. Even if we never took the lights in the field are we expected to not lose it.
It seems like a colossal fail in my book. a fail in terms of product testing. Clearly the light was never put into the hands of a parent because even organized parents like us would see that the screwdriver would be lost before the first change in batteries. the screw is so small that even one of those 8 in one screwdrivers or a Swiss army knife would not be able to open it.
Bad design, Black diamond should be ashamed. If I can find the packaging they are going back to the store...
Disappointed in a trusted brand.
We will get over it

stopped working on first campout

I bought this headlamp for my son to use on Boy Scout campouts. As a rule of thumb, I seek out the least expensive products to send out with him, especially flashlights, etc. as they are commonly lost.

I installed the batteries without any problem. Apparently, on the second night, the headlamp stopped working. He said that he was using it and the light went out. He and I both assumed that the battery died. I replaced them and found that the unit had, in fact, stopped working.

I have owned other black diamond products and they have served me well, however, I would not recommend this unit based on my experience.
jonhoffm at REI on 04/04/2013

not kid-friendly

I bought this to give as a gift to my niece at summer camp and fortunately took it out of the package beforehand to put in the batteries. Get this: installing/replacing battery requires a special screwdriver, which comes with the package but - as one can imagine - would get lost fast. Can you imagine wrestling with that on a camping trip? this is going back.
Tisa at REI on 08/08/2011

Needs tiny phillips screwdriver

Works fine for my daughter, who isn't old enough to be picky about headlamps. When I went to change the battery, I couldn't open it because it requires a tiny phillips screw driver, which I don't have. What a pain. Will return it and get a real head lamp.
btng at REI on 08/08/2011

Worse than can be believed

Brutally bad. Cheap, dim, and worst of all, needs a tiny screw driver to open it. Ours wouldn't open without two engineers and a lot of effort. I'm glad, because I can make a legitimate return and buy my daughter a real headlamp.

Black Diamond Wiz

I was looking for a cheap,compact headlamp to carry in a pocket for work. It's a basic headlamp for a fair price. I actually didn't notice the little "safety screw" thing until I got it home. Like most people I know, I usually don't carry a mini-phillips screwdriver with me. I am probably going to leave it "unlocked" by not tightening the screw. It will stay together regardless. Special note; the included screwdriver will probably have the tip end in the handle (so pull out and reverse ends). Will keep since returns for me are a hassle. But next time would probably go for the next model up?
KeiththeSurveyor at REI on 11/11/2011

It's a headlamp. It seems to work. It's small and reasonably priced. It's very similar to my old one from BD, except it's got 2 LEDs not 3.
However, BD has added A PHILIPS SCREW to the battery compartment. There's a small screwdriver in the package. Really? Am I supposed to carry a special screwdriver at all times on trips so I can swap out batteries in a headlamp? Seems like an afterthought to fix a design screw up.

anton2159384 at on 08/20/2012

very simple headlamp. I use it as a just in case head lamp in my car glove box. It is bright but only turns on hi on low and off. Super basic.

josh surkes at on 11/19/2010

Bought these for all of my 4 nephew's when they were heading off to camp this summer. They were a hit and helpful as well. great inexpensive option.
