Now we're really getting off topic, perhaps we should point out that C&A can apply to both genders.... C&A are still going strong in Hungary, by the way.

Am not sure he is Chinese, I think he was offering a belt mounted caplamp a while ago, and the photographs of that suggested a mediterranean clime

From a purely personal and practical point of view, since I have been using my helmet mounted lamp and battery pack I have found it much easier to go for a cr*p whilst underground at work.
With the belt mounted battery you have to remove your lamp and can't see what you are doing!

Not sure you all wanted to know that but there we are..........

Well, of course you would need a good lamp for that so you can be careful where you tread. Shocked

I think I might add that to my brochure for the compact / cordless lamps I sell.

On second thoughts... maybe not Laugh

I think this discussion has a got as low as it can get without actually standing in it!
Perhaps it should be reconvened when someone has tested one of these lamps and can make a real evaluation,after all there are several on the market.
My own one I felt was too heavy on the helmet which is why I returned back to one mounted on my belt.
Not the Oldham T !

Glad to hear that John. The thought of an Oldham T on my belt is bad enough, on my bloody head is the stuff of nightmares.

Getting away from the scatalogical....

I've never tried a chordless lamp. At work I use an oldham MF and at play I use one of Mr Fellows' confections

With a chordless my main concern would be one of helmet balence. On a caving - climbing type helmet with a good chin strap I imagine that this would not be an issue. However my work helmet does not have a strap and I imagine that a lamp headshell on the front without either a battery box on the back of the helmet or a cable to act as a counterbalence would cause the helmet to slip forward.

Prefer a strap-on myself. Never liked all those belts and stuff... Shocked

Counterbalance for modified Oldham headpiece, still a cable job though.

Agreed Smile These compact cordless lamps weight less than 200g - heavy they are not!
