Revisit My New Mitaki Japan Wind Up LED Head Lamp

So what I did was run down my head lamp until it was almost out so I can show how it cranks up. The thing is you don’t want to let a rechargable light discharge all the way down because sometimes that kills the battery. It’s safer to recharge, in this case with the wind-up generator, before the battery runs completely out.

I was a bit surprised when after having the head lamp on for three hours with the three LEDs the head lamp was still bright enough to see around a dark room. Not real bright mind you but enough to see around.

We’ll see how well the lamp takes a charge.

I thank oldgeekster for sharing the results from the test he did,
And as always, thank you for watching my videos,
