Rated 1 out of 5 by Douglas Single point of failure
Great headlamp, but the plastic clip that fastens the light to the strap broke. I can't find a replacement option anywhere on the Black Diamond site.
A $20 headlamp crippled by a 10-cent piece of plastic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Eric One quit working
I have two of these, purchased for my kids. Like the review above, one of them won't stay on, it shuts off after about 10 seconds. It can be turned back on but continues to exhibit this flaw. New batteries don't help. The light worked fine for a year or so and then suddenly started shutting off.
The other lamp continues to work perfectly. Neither lamp has been abused, they are kept separate from regular toys and are reserved only for camping.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Water Can't believe it stopped working!
I bought the Wiz (two of them) for myself and a friend. I would trust Black Diamond to sell awesome equipment so I was really disappointed when the light stopped working correctly. When I press the button, the light comes on, then turns itself off after a few seconds. Every single time, comes on, then turns itself off. Even if I keep my finger pressed down on the button, it goes off.
I'll definitely return the lamp where I bought it in North America, but unfortunately, I am now in Sweden at the onset of winter, and it will be of no use to me when I really need it. To be fair, my friend's lamp still works fine. If you buy this light, be aware that a very small Philips screwdriver is provided to change the batteries. If you are someone who tends to misplace tools, this may not be the best light for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by James Excellent headlamp for my 5 y/o
Recently bought this lamp for my 5 y/o daughter and our latest backpacking trip; very lightweight, easy for her to use, even the adjustment to dim was easy for her to accomplish. My wife commented on the brightness for such a small device. This was definitely an excellent choice for her first headlamp!
