    Foxelli Headlamp!!!

    Hey Everyone!

    Just wanted to let you know I found a Great Headlamp!...Made By Foxelli!:

    Rechargeable Headlamp | Foxelli

    Extremely Comfortable and Lightweight!....USB Rechargeable so you don't have to buy any more batteries!....charge it while on your way to a service call...or when you get home!....100 hours runtime on low mode, which I found perfect for close tech work on copiers!....Plus it has a diffuser to slide over the light to broaden and soften the light!

    I just couldn't believe the price from Foxelli--$29.97 w/free shipping in the US!....WoW!

    Below are some personal pix I took!:

    Below is an example of using the light...nice and diffuse...not too harsh...perfect for seeing the subject material and taking a picture with your mobile phone!...BTW, what you are looking at is the electrical connections of the paper feed units on a Ricoh B&W 50+ CPM MFP!

    Here are some pix of the Foxelli Headlamp that I took myself below!:

    This is the downward facing micro USB charge port on battery pack on the rear of the headband!...It is facing downward...just in case you forget to reseal it with the cap, it won't collect water if you go out in the rain!

    Here is a closeup of one of the clips holding the power wire to the headband....it has a positive click feature so the power cable stays put!:

    Below you see the black durable strain relief that holding the power cable and to the left, you see the battery charge indicator!:

    An SOS whistle attached to the headband...."Just in Case"!:

    View of Light Diffuser which slides down over the light to broaden and soften the light!:

    View of the Diffuser slid up with the focused spotlight lens visible!:

    Below, on the side of the light unit, you see the power/multi-mode change button!:

    On this side of the light, you see another durable strain relief for the power cable!:
    FoxelliLight9.jpg

    Anyway, I hope you folks liked my pictures!

    For me, my headlamp (Foxelli now!) is probably one of the most, if not THE MOST valuable tool I have in my tool bag!...If I can't see what I am working on--handsfree (not holding the light) I can then see AND use both hands to do the job quickly and efficiently!

    So If anyone has any questions about this headlamp, add to the thread!...I'll try to respond as accurately and quickly as possible!

    CHEERS

    It looks very handy, but just a little geeky. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    Not at all geeky!...especially when it keeps you from getting you fingers caught in a belt drive!



    PS--My headlamp previous to the Foxelli was more *geeky*!

    But surely a good tech should be able to work with his eyes shut?

    At least 50% of IT is a solution looking for a problem.

    cool ? yes! but a little pricey........... I've bought a couple headlamps at the local chain stores with a pack of AAA bats for $15 or less and got at least a year out of it before I had to buy more batteries.....................

    I use a Utilitech LED flashlight. 1 1/4" diameter, 4" long, three AAA batteries. Small enough that I can turn it on and position where it provides light where need it. I buy them at Lowes. List online as $9.97. I usually find them in the store for under $6.

    Re: Foxelli Headlamp!!!

    After you use it for a while, I'd be interested in hearing how durable the on/off switch is. I'd like LED lights a lot except the switch always fails early for me.
    Of course that is likely my fault. For troublesome calls, telling the people exactly what is happening can be unproductive. Sometimes when that happens, I turn big, green, and uglier on the way out to the car and things I find that are of questionable durability get broken.

    I did read that the Tikkina can use rechargeable Ni-Mh batteries...but the question is, can you recharge the batteries while they are installed???
