Armytek Wizard C2 Pro Nichia Magnet USB Warm - 3000k
I used to be a black diamond guy. Still love my black diamond but I needed something with more utility. Upon researching so many popular brands and different head lamps I ended on this one. Why? Love the fact it's not just a headlamp but a right angled light with a magnet in the tailcap but the real reason, the emitter. I like my lights warmer and this tint is perfect. When I saw that Killzone had teamed up with Armytek I had to go for it. I use this for just about everything that calls for more light and the tint is perfect, not too warm and of course not too cool, just perfect for my needs. Also, almost forgot to mention, love the durability and the fact I can use my own batteries and don't have to buy a proprietary one.
Awesome tint and output, definitely in my top 5 favorite lights
A Reddit user on r/flashlight posted about killzone partnering with Armytek to do a run with warm emitters. The internet seems to be very polarized on Armytek lights in general due to their great build quality but poor customer service but I pulled the trigger because this purchase was through killzone. The light is great, colour temp is perfect, anodizing is…standard Armytek. All in all I would buy again and do recommend. Also apparently you can get this model in green so check that out I that’s more your style I guess.
Use it heavily all day every day at work doing lots of electrical work in cabinets and panels. Nice wide, warm, high CRI beam. Great battery life. Decent headband but not as comfortable as Skilhunt's. An awesome companion for working in some dark dungeons
I have been waiting for this light for 5 years. Thats when I started carrying my first Wizard. The clip, switch, UI, mode spacing, wide beam, texture, water and drop rating are all first class. The light goes in and out of the head mount easily. The mount does need some padding but I've already fixed that. The 3000K hi cri was all that was missing from the Armytek lineup.
Got one of these after waiting months to find one. The emitter is great. The host(first Armytek) is not so great. The seals are solid and the charging is fine. Magnet is good. Now for the poor aspects. Seems like these are a mixed bag. It is good in low temps but this thing heats up quickly for an 18650 headlamp. I get yellow and red thermal warnings each use. Maybe this is just a lemon? this is my first Armytek and after all the reviews and attention they get I was expecting a lot, maybe too much? Body color is also off. I WB locked my wall shot at 5000K. Emitter ECU on Low. Crab shot is under high CRI LED lighting with neutral tint. It is so close but I had to take a star away.
Now for the good part. Killzone has great customer service and they communicated with me very quickly message by message and really squared me up. Jody, thank you for the amazing customer service.
If you want a great shop, you found it. If you want a good warm emitter hard use work light? I would stick to other manufactures. YMMV
I really enjoy my Skilhunt, Manker and Zebralight headlamps. Using so many lights I feel I have given this light a fair review again, I think this light is worth a try but it has some shortcomings.
