Atomic Beam headlamp is a piece of junk. The first one I bought I bought at a drugstore that had a 90-day return policy. It lasted 93 days with somewhat frequent use, and then it refused to turn on.
It appears to be very poorly constructed. I lost that $20 but I bought another one, and a friend bought one, and another friend bought one, and they kept breaking so we kept returning them, using the same receipt. I guarantee you this product could be advertised as it won't last long because if you buy one it won't last long. I would recommend buying it from a drug store with a 90-day return policy because it will break within 90 days, if you're lucky, that way you can get your money back.
When it does work, it seems to work really good, but unfortunately, they seem to break even when you're not using them. You use them, and once you put them down, you go back a month later, and the thing won't work. And it's not the batteries.
Finally, I just took it back and got my money back. I bought a two-pack of headlamps at Costco that aren't as bright, but they are designed much better, and they actually work. The ads make it sound too good to be true, and it is because As Seen On TV is code for "this product doesn't work."
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
