About this deal

Valaisimen vedenpitävyys on myös kokeiltu yöllisellä swimrunilla, johon lamppu soveltuu erittäin hyvin. However, we have to admit that this headlamp is much brighter — which is why it is popular with ultramarathoners and trail runners who need to see a lot of detail on the ground.

One nice feature is that the light does a quick double flash when the dimmable light reaches its maximum or minimum power. But we also include a budget option for situations where having the most lighting possible isn’t required.In addition to the dual-beam design, the rest of the new Onsight 375 is well thought out for climbers’ needs. That matches the longest battery life of any headlamp we considered, including the Black Diamond Storm 400, which runs on 4 AAA batteries instead of 3. While we miss the 330, we think for most folks–from runners to hikers to people walking the dog–the 425 headlamp should be all you need. The balanced weight distribution helps the BioLite feel very secure — a reason why it’s a popular running headlamp.

In addition, the battery power should last long enough so you won’t need to fumble for replacements in the dark, and replacing batteries or toggling between settings should be equally hassle-free. Unfortunately, during testing, after only a few weeks of use on backpacking trips, the hinge that opens the battery panel broke so we could not secure the panel. With 1,600 lumens of brightness, more than twice any of most of our winners, it's a favorite in the running community.

The Nitecore NU 25 has been a favorite headlamp of thru-hikers, alpine climbers, ultralight backpackers, and fast and light adventurers due to its 1 oz weight and reliability. Rechargeable batteries are more prone to self-discharge (the gradual loss of battery power even when the batteries are not in use) than standard batteries.

However, in low light mode, it runs for 160 hours, which is better than some other rechargeable headlamps, like the BioLite 330. With a 6 of 10 score, the ReVolt was a solid, but not exceptional, performer in the trail finding metric. The Actik Core is a favorite in our Best Eco-friendly Gear Swaps to Reduce Your Environmental Footprint and an excellent option for folks who want both the security of backup batteries and the environmental-friendliness of a rechargeable headlamp. Fortunately, our testers never had to charge the LED headlamp at the same time that he was hiking, but they did take advantage of the charging feature while in their tents at night. Headlamp manufacturers are getting much better at reporting these specs, but it still sometimes takes some digging to get the full answer.

Nonetheless, the BioLite 425 survived the rigors of a variety of adverse conditions our testers put the headlamp through. As a result, the battery life is even longer–20 more hours at the low setting and 30 more minutes at the high setting.
