Daily deal – 40 LED headlamp for $8.50

Today’s Daily deal is perfect for the more adventurous traveler. This 40 LED headlamp is powered by 3 AA batteries, and the manufacturer claims an 80 hour run time.

Of course, having a head mounted flashlight is great for basic DIY work around the house, but it will probably be in its element in the forest or when trying to navigate your way around a hotel during a power outage.

The lamp itself can be tilted down and you can select one of 4 different settings (3 different intensities and one flashing mode). On the dimmest setting, it should be enough to read a book during an overnight flight, or if you don’t want to disturb your significant other when you try and read in bed.

This flashlight normally costs $16.99, but you can pick one up for just $8.49 by using coupon code “M24802850POFF“. To make the deal even better, you also get free shipping, and no sales tax if you live outside CA or MA. The online store accepts most major credit cards as well as Paypal payments.

One word of warning though; I do not suggest purchasing this lamp if your life is going to depend on it. If your trip takes you to caves, mountain faces or anywhere your only light will be from your flashlight, then I recommend getting a professional lamp, like one from Petzl.
