With a lens and reflector combination that provides excellent focus control, these headlamps produce brilliant illumination from the middle of the beam to the edge, whether narrowly focused as a spotlight or set as a broad floodlight. An integrated microcontroller regulates power to the Cree LEDs, ensuring consistent light output and long battery life.
A mode button lets you easily switch the lamp on and off, or activate an emergency flash setting. When you hold the mode button down, the light dims steadily from full power to a faint glow, holding the desired setting when you release; the lamp saves this setting and returns to it the next time it is turned on.
Lightweight, water resistant and durably constructed, the lamps have an aluminum lens housing set in a rugged plastic body that can be tilted to six different positions within an 85° range. The housing is padded on the back for comfort, and the adjustable headband is easy to remove for washing.
Designed, quality inspected and packaged in Denmark, both headlamps are assembled in China from components made in USA and China. Each comes backed with a 5-year warranty against defects in material and workmanship, and is supplied in a rugged nylon belt/storage pouch.
The V3 model produces a beam that is adjustable from 30 to 220 lumens and can illuminate objects up to 180m (590') away. It weighs 160g (5.6 oz) and runs on three AAA batteries (included) for up to 30 hours.
The V3r model comes with a lithium-ion battery that provides up to 30 hours of power and can be recharged with the included charger or from a USB port (adapter cable included). The beam is adjustable from 25 to 170 lumens; an additional "boost" mode produces a high-intensity 300-lumen beam that can illuminate objects up to 230m (750') away, operating for up to 3 minutes before returning to the normal "on" setting. Weighs 184g (6.5 oz).
