Those LED chips can't output that many lumens even if you set them on fire and 4000mAh 18650s have not been invented yet.
This is fake chinese garbage.
That said you should get 500-1000 lumens and the batteries are about as safe as an exploding hoverboard

Two things you don't yet buy direct from China: Batteries and LEDs :)

Also even if lumens were true, you will get like a minute of runtime before either battery drains or LED overheats. I had few flashlights and LEDs that overheated and those were not even grossly over rated.

May want to buy reliable batteries to use since you are strapping them to your head.

indeed, unprotected no name batteries hooked in series and possibly a non charging algorithm charger.
Reverse charging, dendrite growth, unsafe construction or incorrect charging can all lead to explosions, all attached to a person's head :facepalm:

Ummm, yeah, but the USB plug has a happy face on it, so it must be safe... ;-)

Not sure if it helps the situation much, but the batteries are wired in parallel, not series. I did some digging on this brand of battery and people are reporting actual outputs between 1200mAh and 2200mAh so the cells are likely recycled, how long you actually get out of the ones you buy will vary significantly.

Considering they're selling these for $10, can't really expect quality cells.

Parallel does matter, it removes one hazard.
There are many chinese no name cells that are not recycled but made in factories, but not safe.
