Long Term Testing:
I carry this light with me every day. I have used it on 4 different
hikes varying from an overnighter to a week-long trek in the Rocky
Mountains. Temperatures have ranged from 30 to 95 F (-1 to 35 C). I
also use it around the home and in other situations when I need a
quick beam. On my hikes, I have found it to work well as a tent light,
to find items at night in my gear bags, to check a stake and other
type activities that do not require me to walk around in the dark. It
excels when I use it at night to review my maps. While the beam is
sufficient for me to use at night inside my camp area, I have found
that the beam is just not as bright as I desire for making nature
calls at night into the woods or camp privy. I have found at night the
light is more like a miniature flood light, and while it does light up
a general area, it does not provide me with the focused beam at a
distance long enough that I like to be able to discern tree roots,
potholes, or other similar type obstacles. The light excels for what I
feel it was designed for, a quick light for short distances, for
emergency type situations where a quick beam is required, for
reviewing maps or similar data in a darkened tent, car, or around the
campfire. It works on most, but not all, of my headwear. It causes the
wide brim of my hiking hat to droop, and does not work with my
balaclava that I wear around camp and sleep in.
I have not had to change batteries on the light. For the things that I
use it for, there is still plenty of light when needed. I have not
used the light in the rain, but I have exposed it to considerable
dampness and high humidity conditions and have not noticed any
degradation in the light, switch or other parts. The button on the
light has stayed secure and shows no signs of wear. The light has held
up very well considering I have carried it around on my keychain
almost since the first day of receiving it. The key chain attachment
has worked well with no failures.
I have found the LedHedz Cruizer 10 lamp to be a versatile,
lightweight, durable light that excels for quick uses, emergency
lighting and for general use around my campsites. It is easy to carry
and will adapt to certain types of hat brims. It provides sufficient
lumination for short-term and short-range use. It is sturdy, adaptable
to my keychain, some hats, as a jacket zipper pull or to just keep in
my car. Overall, this is a great little lamp to take on any trip or
excursion, or to keep in my car or pocket for unexpected situations.

Russell, I found almost nothing to edit - very clean, easy report.

there are significant concerns in the other reports that aren't echoed
or repeated here. I don't think that's the case (certainly nothing I saw
in a quick re-read), so I wonder if rephrasing this might be a good idea.
