Re: [BackpackGearTest] Edit/Approval - Primus PrimeLite Compact Trekk - Nancy Griffith
- Hi Richard,
Thanksgiving worked out ok despite my getting sick on Wednesday night. I still enjoyed a lovely meal with family. Nothing irritates me like being sick so instead of cancelling our backpacking trip we just reduced the mileage...and the weather cooperated. I hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving also and have a good travel week this week.
I have made the changes, uploaded and deleted the test file. Hope you see you again as I attempt to get caught up on some ORs.

Hope you had a pleasant Thanksgiving. Your edits follow, in the usual format. After revising you may upload to the existing folder, but bee sure you indicate "Owner Review" when you upload. Also remember to delete your Tests/OR folder copy.
<<PRIMUS PRIMELITE CT HEADLAMP [title]>>
EDIT: On Primus's website it's the PrimeLite (not upper case L) Compact Trekk (note the double k). Though it's abbreviated on the product itself, please revise here. OK to abbreviate in the Review if you define it the first time you use it.
EDIT: Here it should be the manufacturer's full legal name, Primus AB. ["AB" is the Swedish equivalent of "Inc."]
EDIT: This looks to me like it was taken from Primus's website. If so you need to attribute it somewhere in your review.
<<Size: 2 in x 2.6 in x 1.3 in (50 mm x 66 mm x 32 mm)>>
EDIT: This is the listed size. Either add "Verified accurate" or add your own measurements.
<<The Primus PrimeLite CT headlamp has one Luxeon™ diode in the center and three white light-emitting diodes on either side. >>
EDIT: See EDIT above regarding name.
Edit: You might add "(LED)" after "diodes" for clarification.
<<There are two buttons on the top; one is simply and on/off and the the other toggles through the modes. >>
EDIT: Delete the extra "the" after "on/off and."
<<The brightness levels for the six diode flood light are 25% and 100%. For the center diode spot light the brightness levels are 50% and 100% brightness.>>
Edit: I'm confused. What are the percentages of? Maximum brightness?
<<The Primus Primelite CT headlamp seems to be a good quality light with adequate output for general use in camp, for reading, walking, etc.>>
Edit: This is a bit of style commentary, but bears on BGT's prohibition of projection. After three years' heavy use you ought to be able to say what it is, or has been for you, not merely what it "seems to be."
<< It has been completely reliable throughout the battery life and has provided great durability given all of the trips that it has been on.>>
Edit: "stated battery life" would add clarity
