I lost my directions for my BD Storm headlamp. Now, I'm always getting the beta mixed up on how many pushes of the button does what, when, and how.

Could someone post the directions to this hi-tech gadget? Thanks.

click to turn on and off.
clicking also changes modes between diffuse and spotlight.
holding while the light is on changes the dimmer.
holding while the light is off changes between red and white light.
holding to dim doesn't apply to red light.
withe lights off, clicking 3 times quickly goes into flashing mode.

A freakin' user interface disaster!
I have one, btw. Hated the modal interface within the first 30 seconds.

It's FAR more intuitive than the Petzl RXP. What a shitshow.

You forgot that if you start with the light off and hold for more than 6 seconds it locks the light off. To turn it back on you have to hold the button for 6 seconds again.

Except that somehow, even in lock mode, the thing still finds a way to turn itself on and die.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
