Love the dimmable feature

This is the first headlamp I have used in several years. The older ones being either clunky or junky.
The Princeton Tec Refuel 200 Headlamp is a nicely designed headlamp and the dimmable feature is a big plus!
With all the streetlights in my area going LED it is very (too) well lit along the main routes, therefore I can simply press the button for a few seconds and it starts dimming to the point it is barely visible to me though pre-caffeinated drivers can still see this.
When I get to the darker side roads and trails, press once to shut it off and again to bring back full power. Easy.
The only reason for the half-start deduction is the battery compartment door has the feeling that it will not take more than 3 or 4 times of opening/closing. I hope I am mistaken though a rechargeable unit/USB charger would be the finishing touch for this versatile lamp.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend to a friend.
