This Li-ion powered dual white LED headlamp is arguably the brightest headlamp of its kind on the market. Some companies inflate their claims on Lumens however, since this light meets the ANSI / FL-1 requirements ( American National Standards Institute) I am able to say without question it has a true 1800 Lumens. To give you an idea of how bright the HL50 is, when set at full power the HL50 is as bright or even brighter than the high-beam on most vehicle headlights.
It features a unique micro controller which offers practical functionality with 8 easily-accessed brightness modes (with memory) and 4 hidden strobe/flash modes. The HL50 is also extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear for long periods of time. It weighs only 10 oz with the batteries installed. It provides excellent run times with the two 18650 rechargeable batteries; approx. 2hrs on max mode (1800 lumens) and up to 67 hours on low mode (50 lumens). The HL50 features a user friendly compartmentalized power driver/switch for added safety.
It provides all the same features as our HL08 series headlamps. However, due to the extreme amount of light output, the HL50 requires two batteries with a total voltage of 7.4V. In summary, the HL50 is the ultimate outdoors-man headlamp great for raccoon hunting, fishing, biking, camping, hiking, caving, mushing or any activity which requires hands-free lighting.
