TEST CALL TEXT FOR - MH-10 HEADLAMP

Maybe we've done a test of a headlamp this bright before, but I certainly didn't test it if we did. 600 lumens - you could light up the whole Grand Canyon with this torch! Anyway, BGT would like to offer 3 darkness-challenged testers the opportunity to put the LEDLenser MH10 headlamp through its paces. See the webpage for the product here: https://www.ledlenserusa.com/mh10-507.html Test details: A. US & Canadian shipping included B. Normal test sequence: 3 reports over 4 months C. Subject line for your app: "Application: LEDLenser MH10 " D. Closes: Tuesday Feb 20, 2018 @ 12pm midnight E. CC your app to kwpapke (at) gmail (dot) com F. Send your contact and shipping info to me as a separate e-mail using the above addx, NOT as part of your Yahoo app App outline: 1. Opening disclaimer for testing 2. Brief personal bio 3. Brief test plan, i.e. what activities will you use the headlamp for (running, cycling, etc. as well as backpacking)? Need a synopsis of your hiking and camping/backpacking plans. 4. Your current test load, AND a link to your test status page 5. Any other pending applications. If you apply for anything subsequently to this but before this call closes, please send me an email offlist noting the new app. 6. LOL (Labor of Love): Any additional BGT roles (mentor, monitor, editor, etc.), OR's, etc. ***Don't forget to send me a separate e-mail as in "F" above*** Happy applicating! --Kurt
