At MTNGear we have been using a focusable 750lm headlamp that accepts 18650 rechargeable lithium ion batteries for years. The ability to focus the beam is very useful for seeing at distance and focusing on an animal or even locating a safe river crossing and locating the track on the other side. When we looked for a replacement we could not find a suitable replacement so decided to source our own.
One of the key features is the 18650 rechargeable lithium ion battery which can be easily swapped out for a fresh one. These batteries have a great energy density and hold far more energy than AA or AAA rechargeable batteries.
- 750lm max output
- Runtime of 10hr low, 4hr high, 4-120hr using stepless dimming. Note this is using a 2600mah 18650 rechargeable lithium ion battery and will increase if using a larger capacity battery.
- Focusable beam

- Adjustable angle
- light unit can be removed from headband to be used as torch

We recommend buying an additional battery so you have a spare. Our recommendation is the 3500mAh 3.6V NITECORE NL1835 Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery 18650. We currently do not stock these but are available from many retailers.
