Shopping For A LED Headlamp

What is a headlamp?

The ultimate convenience is provided by a headlamp. You can do everything from trail running at dusk to fixing a water leak under the sink. Many of them have adjustable straps that can be adjusted to fit your head and secure it in place. There are many features to consider while you shop for the best rechargeable headlamp :

Distance to the beam:

They are not all created equal. The lumens of a headlamp tell you how brightly it glows. The beam distance, measured in meters, determines the distance the lamp can project light. A headlamp with a 100m beam distance will permit you to see 100 meters in front of it.


Another thing to consider is the amount of control you have over how bright your headlamp emits. Most headlamps will only offer a minimal amount of high or low modes.

Battery Life

Headlamps are meant to be used when you're out and about.  For headlamps that aren’t used frequently, the common batteries AA and AAA are great. 18650 batteries are best for those that will be used for a long time. It is a great way to save money by choosing a rechargeable battery.

Other options include:

  • Tilt function: This allows you to point the light exactly where you want it.

  • Water resistance: To withstand the rain.

  • It is easy to find the on/off switch.
