    Thing about it is, it is so gradual you dont notice till you buy a new bulb.
    Yeah, true, but you can put a new bulb in a fixture next to an older bulb and then compare. I recently added two more LED fixtures in my garage, and the brightness look pretty darn similar to the older ones, but it really is hard to tell exactly. FWIW, I use the Phillips 6000K (daylight) "150W equivalent" bulbs (23 watts, I think) and 2600 lumens. I have 12 of those puppies now in my garage, it's like standing outside on a sunny day in there, very nice for woodworking and such. Sorry for the headlamp subject drift....

    The overall good news is that LED bulbs have really come down in price, so they are so worth it for energy savings. And this applies to hiking lamps as well, way more light per ounce of battery than the old filament types.

    +1 for the NU25. Used one on my recent Sobo and it worked like a champ. I liked to get an early start so I was usually on trail a couple hours before sunup every day. One of my daily "chores" was to plug it in when I got to camp in the evening to top it off for the next day's use. I especially like that you can lock the switch so it doesn't get turned on by accident. Also carried a Maglite Solitare for those mornings when the fog would just reflect the light from the headlamp back at me.
