Take a look at my unboxing of the Unilite HL-4R

Torch Direct stock the light, and for a Head light with this spec I feel it is a good buy, time will tell, as I plan to use it a lot, so will be updating the review blog as soon as I can...
The light has a multitude of uses, its coming up for Christmas, use it in the dark loft to get the Christmas tree down, your taking your dog for a walk, simply place it on your head, Angle the light to see the way, you have to get up for work in the morning on the early shift, place it on your head, switch it on and then lock the house and go off to work, see where you are to unlock the garage, on a Narrow boat, need to jump ashore, place on head, leaves your hands free to cling onto the side of the boat, if your a plumber, electrician, a building surveyor, a house assessment insurance man, you all need this light, it will come in handy I promise you.

It's Not Just A Cycle Light.
Don't think just because I have a light on review on a cycling blog that the light is just a cycle light, the H-4R is more than that....
Its a ideal head torch if you are in the building trade, a Electrician for example... do you need to see the fuse board...
How about a house surveyor, need more light to inspect the timbers....
Without the HL-4R turned on, dark place to check over..
Plumbers, getting under the bath to look, ideal head torch..
One use I find for the HL-4R is when I leave the house in the early morning darkness, makes it easier to lock the house up and open the garage door...
Keep the HL-4R in the car in its neat carry bag, ideal for a emergency on the side of the road, Red LED's remember for the full emergency don't forget...
MORE TO COME.
In the meantime check out the Unilite website or Twitter feed...
Good Points: Great non slip headband, easy on/off, bright LED's, fast charge time, long battery life, pouch to keep it in when not in use, dust proof, water proof.
Bad Point's: Turns on at its brightest setting, could do with starting at the lowest setting.. and that is the only thing I could criticize about the HL-4R head torch.
Using the HL-4R as a cycle helmet head torch
To use as a cycle head light mounted to your cycle helmet, simply remove the headband and replace with a Velcro strap
Pass the Velcro around the holding tabs on the rear of the HL-4R and pass it through the vents on the cycle helmet..
Pass it through and tighten to the desired tension.
The HL-4R has a tilt on the front so you can easily angle to the right sight line needed for the ride.
Works a treat, ideal to use with a handle bar mounted cycle light...
Footnote: Just a mention on the 3M adhesive pad that comes with the HL-4R Head torch, I found it was not possible to fit this adhesive pad to a open vented cycling helmet, as the surface is not flat enough to stick the pad to, so the review has not been done on the 3M adhesive pad fixing, it would be ideal for a snow boarders or a skate boarders helmet, and also a builders hard hat....
I used a Velcro strap with a loop on the end to fit to the HL-4R and attach to the helmet..
