While perusing the aisles of Fleet Farm today I noticed a new headlamp. It's a cap light style. While the style that clips the bill of the cap is nothing new, a couple of the features were.

The thing that made be do a double take was that it is rechargeable. You can charge it 3 ways, AC/DC/USB.

It also had a function to emit a high frequency sound to deter the bugs.

I almost pulled the trigger, but decided not too.

I'd like to hear if anyone picks one of these up and see how long the battery lasts in between charges.

The packaging claims that you "never" have to replace batteries.

Well even rechargeables don't last forever.

I just have not had much luck with rechargeable batteries. In light emitting devices.

Here's some specs that I found:

N-Rit's environmentally-friendly G3 Rechargeable LED Cap Lights offer all the convenience of typical cap lights, but with the added benefits a more practical and powerful hands-free, six-bulb LED Cap Light delivers without the need for and the hassle of batteries. Simply clip one of these lightweight, multi-purpose G3 Cap Lights to the bill of your cap via the super-strong easy on/off clip to enjoy the latest LED technology which includes 2-1/2 times brighter illumination, five different light functions for maximum utility and an innovative ultra-sonic bug repellent feature. The ultra-sonic bug repellent feature is available in any mode and is activated by holding the mode button for one second. To recharge this eco-friendly G3 LED Cap Light, simply plug the included USB cable into your computer or utilize either the DC or AC adapters which come with this Premier package. Requires 3-1/2 hours to full charge. Charge once a month during off season.

Haven't heard of it, but it sounds interesting. I may have to check it out. What was the cost on that thing?

They look pretty decent but seriously, who needs the mode with 4 constant LED's and 2 blinking reds? smirk

That's definitely the mode I'd use. Especially if I was in John's boat. He loves blinky lights.

I know now, most might shrug off the anti-bug feature, but in another couple weeks we will be rethinking anything to keep them off of us grin

Thanks Dtro for the heads up on this. I also might have to check into it.

With video shooting and our digi camera's, those 4 led do not sound so bad.

Ya, I just reread the stats. Strange????????

I wonder though, is this the series one clicker button style? I do not care for those all that much. When I need light, it is nice to switch a switch once to the setting you want, but the added features could out way that down side.

Let us know!

Shane you should pick up two. You will need to replace the one Grant will drop in the river on you after you show it to him.

The anti bug sound might be questionable at best. I have tested these sound omitting devices for mice and I could not find where one worked worth a hoot.

    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
