Princeton Tec BYTE (Black)
Don’t be fooled by its size!
Smaller and lighter than other members of The Family Series like the Sync and Axis, the Byte has always packed a powerful punch in a compact package, but a recent upgrade brings it up to 100 lumens, making it even more impressive.
The softer side of Byte comes in the form of a red Ultrabright LED to ensure your night vision will never be compromised. The byte is equipped with a digital battery lockout, asymmetrical single arm bracket, easily accessible battery door enclosure, and large push button switch, all at a mere 2.25 ounces.Spec:

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Brighter than my other lamps that use 3 AAA batteries vs. 2 with this lamp. Red is the default, which I dont care for, but not a big deal. I like that the white light default is low beam, thats what I use most of the time anyway.
The light is a good light weight light with good brightness in both red and white modes, however I find the switch a bit cumbersome to operate it could be a slight looser to switch from one mode to the other it might be that it loosens a bit after a little more use the only improvement I could think they could add would be to add a green light mode making it a three mode light. As it is it's worth the price and is a good product
While waiting for my order to arrive, I was fearful that I had been penny-wise and pound-foolish: the BYTE is the cheapest headlamp at the Pathfinder Store. A quick test in an interior bathroom, with lights off & door closed, was enough to reassure me that 50-Lumens is fine for my intended use: an urban, grid-down situation.
My only issue with the product is the button function. Pressing the button turns on the red light and holding it turns the main white light on. Wish they were swapped but that is personal preference and does not change the performance or quality.
