I was looking for something small with a soft, wide beam to use when working on my cars. I was worried this would put out too narrow of a beam, but it's actually perfect.
Very happy with my product. I am an electrician, so this works great locations without light. Battery holds a charge for a long time and light is very bright with multiple modes.
I do historic preservation / restoration work for a living and bought this light to use as a task light, as I was doing a lot of work in dimly lit old buildings and was very drawn to the dual headlamp / handheld design. This is an excellent little light; the UI is very easy to get the hang of, the build quality is excellent (within the first week I dropped it off a scaffold from 30ft up onto hard stone with barely a scratch) and the light the Nichia 519A produces is beautifully diffused and neutral, with a good range of brightness modes for different situations. The headband it comes with is probably the best I've used and, unlike other brands, can accommodate the light with the belt clip installed. Highly recommended for use as a worklight, especially for up close tasks or general area flooding.
I researched a bit on flashlight forums before deciding on this Nichia 519A/4500k version. Was mentioned by many… with a good combination of features and apparently one of the best headbands. I originally wanted ramping ability (Anduril UI) and considered both the Lumintop HL3A as well as the Emisar DW4… the Armytek Nichia warm version was also in the running, as was the Zebralights… but in the end decided to listen to the online folks based on my intended use. Important to me was the high CRI/warmer CCT, and as a package, not overly heavy. CCT worked out even better than expected as 4500k was still too high, but I was able to dedome the LED (easily done with a steady hand) which got it down to about 3600k with an even nicer tint, perfect for me.
In the short time I’ve had it, found myself using it often, not just outdoors but for any detailed close-up work indoors. Very handy to have ).
I've only had the light for a couple weeks, but I've had to use it almost every day. It's one of those things you don't know you've been missing until you have it. Incredibly bright with long run times, even on higher settings. The headband is the best of the best. The ability to quickly remove the light from the band and replace it when needed is great.
Overall I really like the H04 RC. It has a long battery life and gives a nice soft area light. Color accuracy with the Nichia 519A is also amazing. It's great for up close work, dog walking, or reading. However, I was a bit disappointed in the lack of throw. The TIR lens give a bright and even flood, but I hadn't considered just how short range this light would be. I'm not deducting stars from the review though. This was my error, not an issue with the light. I should have purchased the H04F RC, which has a hinged TIR lens so you can switch between spot and flood modes easily. That'll be going on my wish list.
So, it's a great light, but make sure you purchase the correct sub-model. Skilhunt is great at making options available, but that also means the customer needs to know which options they actually require to get the best tool for the job.
I've found this to be a great tool. The head strap is great and the color quality with the 519A is top-notch. It's a bit less bright at its maximum setting than I was expecting, but that just means it runs for a good long time. I've taken this out on my nightly runs and it has been able to keep a healthy charge over several days of extended use.
