I-view headlamp review

I-view headlamp reviewAs you guys know, I LOVE flashlights. Headlamps have always been one of those tools I love the idea of. Heck even my dentist uses a headlamp. Today we are going to be checking out the I-View Headlamp from SCANGRIP.

There are always a lot of things to consider when reviewing a light. But when reviewing a headlamp we add an additional element. That element is comfort. While wearing a headlamp remaining comfortable is very important. Not just in the forehead but in the back strap as well.

More on the ScanGrip I-View
The I-View comes with a wall charger, and a proprietary charging cable. The good thing is, the other end is Usb. That will allow you to use your own wall or 12v outlet to charge your light.
