Armytek Wizard C2 WR Magnet USB
The runtime of up to two months on the Armtek Wizard C2 WR Magnet USB is impressive compared to the previous model, which was only one month. This Armtek Wizard C2 WR Magnet USB model features strong red and white LEDs so you have a choice of LED color depending on your needs.
It is ideal for use in any setting as the primary or supplementary light source. In a camping tent, whether reading maps or viewing the stars, when fishing, hunting, cycling, or for professional applications, the flashlight is suitable for accomplishing tasks in the dark or keeping your night vision when switching between turning the light on and off.
When there is fog or any condition that reduces visibility, the additional red light with 230 lumens is the most effective type of lighting. It can be used either as a warning beacon or as a rear bike light. The model is anticipated to be well received by anglers and hunters alike because the red light does not frighten away fish or animals. A further benefit of the Armytek Wizard C2 WR Magnet USB for outdoor activities is that it enables the user to use the flashlight without drawing the attention of bothersome insects.
The included accessories allow for several different attachment methods: on your head with the help of a head mount, on clothes or a backpack strap with the help of a clip, and on metal surfaces with the help of the magnet in the tailcap. In addition to being compatible with the optional ABM-01 and AHM-02 mounts, the Armytek Wizard C2 WR Magnet USB is an excellent choice for use in professional settings or during bike trips.

Not seriously field tested yet but have used casually. The build quality is amazing and the matte anodization of the metal feels great in the hand. Light gets bright on both white and red and the controls are simple.
I’ve had the Wizard C2 WR for a couple weeks now and, have had it out on one short camping trip. I’m fairly pleased with it overall.
The higher modes are quite bright so I mostly stick to lowest two. The beam is nice and floody in all settings.
The Wizard was exceptionally hand while camping with my family. The minimum output modes are great for getting just enough light to see what you’re doing in a tent without waking anyone and, the magnetic tail cap let me stick the light to a cot and get dressed without actually having to wear the headlamp.
This is my first 90° angle headlamp and I was curious about how it would handle. The headband allows for plenty of adjustment and is in no way awkward as I thought it might be.
My only gripe is with the charging. The magnetic charger is great but, the 1/4 unscrew to charge feels a little finicky somehow. It may just take some getting used to.
All in all I quite like the Wizard and will probably be getting one for my wife as well.
So, this is my third one of the Wizard WR. This one is different from the original version. The head is slightly larger and overall length is slightly shorter. If there’s any difference on brightness or color I can’t really tell with the naked eye. I like the white and red options and the fact that they blink as well. The “frosted” lens or whatever you call it gives the light a nice even wash and yet it’s bright enough to reach out to things far away. I use them at work, on a road while bicycling (one on the front and one on the rear), I use them for night hikes, mountain bicycling, camping, just a light to carry in my pocket. I used headlamps almost everyday at work. They’re great. I had a problem with the very first one I got in the original version. I sent it back and got a different one in return. I haven’t had any problems with all three since. I don’t use the batteries that come with them They don’t hold enough juice to last me the time frame I like so I brought different ones and use the ones that come in the light in a battery bank. Plus, the first one that I purchased I only had problems with that first one when using armyteks battery that came with it so just don’t use their batteries. Maybe the newest version of batteries are ok but I just don’t use their batteries since that first one. Great flashlight! Maybe not so much on the batteries?
It seems obvious in hindsight, but the very exposed button is easily activated on accident. This resulted in the light flickering (not strobing) until I took the battery cap off and put it back on, and eventually, the brightness switching function to completely stop working.
I'll be looking for something else, with a recessed button, in the near future.
