When it comes to buying merchandise online, customer reviews carry a lot of weight. Most consumers that shop on sites such as Amazon.com spend a lot of time carefully assessing the feedback before making their final choice. For Outdoor Pro Gear this has been a major advantage, with their Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp receiving outstanding customer reviews. A relatively new product available on Amazon.com, consumers have been quick to pass their judgment.
“I have to say, this is the single best headlight I have ever owned or used. The special lens over the Cree LED bulb produces a smooth, even spread of light without distracting artifacts. The light is more than bright enough, and the flood setting makes for a clear sight picture as you walk through the woods wearing this light”, stated W. Lloyd in his review of the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp.
Mr. Lloyd also commented on the effectiveness of this headlamp in rugged terrain: “You will find that you move more easily, even over rougher ground, because of the clarity of the light circle. If you need to do so, you can “zoom” the light beam out to a tightly focused spot, but I find this to be less useful for hiking along. Even the dim setting on the headlight is enough to see by if you have not already destroyed your night vision by using the brightest setting first.”
Although there are many headlamps on the market with more people keen to switch away from flashlights and use hands-free lighting, the variation in quality can be a problem. Many headlamps are throw-away items, or expensive to operate. However, Mr. Lloyd highlighted in his review how economical the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is to use:
“This headlight uses common “AA” batteries, easy to find, which last a good long time in intermittent use. I’ve been utilizing this headlight for more than two months of occasional use and I am still on the original set of alkaline batteries. I highly recommend this headlight for camping, nighttime hiking and “trips out to the barn”.”
The feedback Outdoor Pro Gear has received from Mr. Lloyd is characteristic of reviews consumers are leaving on Amazon.com. Although only on the market for a very short time, this product is already ranked number 35 in the best selling headlamps and is rapidly moving to the number one position. Outdoor Pro Gear is confident that the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 will be the number one top selling headlamp before the year is out.
New Lens Technology Allows For Even Light Distribution
Headlamps have come a long way in recent years. Some of the latest technology is particularly impressive. One company called Outdoor Pro Gear has officially launched their new headlamp incorporating sophisticated lens technology to deliver outstanding lighting. The Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp provides users with the flexibility to focus in on objects or use a wide beam for a broader view. Incorporating advanced convex-lens technology, the light emitted from this headlamp is consistent and even throughout the beam. Users of the Lighthouse Beacon are impressed with the quality and versatility of this headlamp.
Marc recently purchased Outdoor Pro Gear’s new headlamp and is delighted with how effective it is: “No complaints. The light is awesome. To give you an idea, on a moonless night, out in the country, with the lamp on the bright setting and focused tight, 150ft away is about as clear as daytime. 200ft is still quite visible. 250ft is lit up but harder to pick out details. 300ft is still lit but details are not there.”
Even at a distance of 300ft, Marc is still happy with how much light this headlamp supplies: “So at 300ft, I can see the silhouette of a deer in a field and the field. I had these distances marked out for dialing in a rifle so it was nice to compare distance to this headlamp. At close distances 20ft or so, depending on the color of the object, this lamp can be too bright. Fortunately it has a dimmer setting. Also, the adjustable field of view is fantastic with this lamp. Love this lamp!”
The Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is made from aero aluminum alloy and ABS, providing a plenty of durability. The 1000 lumen Cree XM-L T6 LED bulb delivers exceptional lighting in all conditions. There are three settings, high, low, and strobe. The strobe setting is designed to help attract attention in emergency situations. Running on AA batteries, this headlamp is economical to operate. Featuring on Amazon.com, for a limited time Outdoor Pro Gear is slashing the price of this headlamp while supplies last.
When there is a blackout or the need for lighting in dark spaces, most people at home would normally grab the flashlight. While there’s no doubt that flashlights are handy, they can also be restrictive. Using a flashlight means that it has to held in a hand, potential restricting movements and limiting hands-free activities. Trying to change blown fuses or achieve other tasks with one hand can be difficult. This is one of the reasons why more people are switching over to headlamps like the Outdoor Pro Gear Lighthouse Beacon.
A 1000 lumen LED headlamp, the Lighthouse Beacon provides exceptional lighting. Being able to comfortably wear this lighting system on the head frees up the hands, making it easier to carry out tasks and still maintain quality directional lighting. For people that haven’t used a headlamp before, trying the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp for the first time has been somewhat of a revelation.
“I have never owned one of these before. The other day while working under the sink and trying to hold a flashlight between my teeth, I decided needed one. I am surprised how comfortable it is and how bright the light is! It is ruggedly built and I love that you can focus the beam down to a small working area. Now that I have it, I am discovering how handy it is”, said Billy McCall in his review of the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp.
Designed using ABS and aero aluminum, this headlamp is lightweight. While the lamp is situated at the front of the head-strap, the battery compartment is at the back. This helps to counterbalance the weight, making it possible to comfortably wear the headlamp for long periods. The batteries required to run the headlamp are AA, making this an inexpensive light to operate. The ability to adjust the light focus is an added bonus, allowing users to use a wide or narrow beam whenever appropriate.
As more people learn about the features of the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp, Outdoor Pro Gear hopes that this product will be a popular choice in households throughout America. Sold on Amazon.com and on OutdoorProGear.net, this headlamp is currently discounted while supplies last.
The Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is one of the fastest selling headlamps on Amazon.com. Retailed by Outdoor Pro Gear, this headlamp is designed to provide superior lighting using sophisticated technology that’s reliable and easy to use. This headlamp appeals to a wide range of people and is particularly popular with biking enthusiasts.
Outdoor Pro Gear customer A. Murray is impressed with the quality and design of the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp: “Great light for biking! It is very bright and easy to wear. It throws a powerful beam that you can direct with a turn of the head, which you can’t do with a mounted light. My husband loved it for camping. The battery pack holds three AA’s so it lasts longer than my other headlamp. I really like the easy focus feature that changes the beam from narrow and intense too broad and wide.”
The Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is designed to be durable and long lasting. Incorporating a Cree XM-L T6 LED bulb, the 1000 lumens and convex lens-focusing technology provide clear, consistent lighting with a range of up to 250 yards. This is ideal for bike riding a night, providing enough light to negotiate rugged trails or stand out on the road.
With three settings, this headlamp can be easily switched between high, low, and strobe for added versatility. The three AA batteries will provide approximately 33 hours of light before they need replacing. The bulb is long lasting with a 100, 000 hour lifespan. Consumers have the option of red, black, and blue headlamps. The Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp can be conveniently purchased online at Amazon.com and then delivered to any location throughout the United States. Currently this product is on special for a limited time.
Frequently working in challenging situations, award-winning director of photography Paul Murray is all too familiar with lighting problems. Having enough light to set up for photo shoots in the dark can be difficult. Holding a flashlight isn’t practical because hands are needed free to arrange the set and the illumination isn’t effective. For these reasons many photographers in this situation use headlamps. With plenty of options it can be difficult to find the right headlamp. Many are poorly constructed and don’t function effectively. However, Mr. Murray swears by the highly popular LED Lighthouse Beacon 1000 from Outdoor Pro Gear.
“Many of our call times are early morning and we have to set up our equipment in the dark. This headlamp seems to be 10 times brighter than the little ones most people wear and much more comfortable. And I like the fact you can adjust the beam’s focus so that you can hold something in your hands and work on it or adjust the lamp to shine out at the equipment you’re setting up”, states Mr. Murray.
The lightweight and sturdy Outdoor Pro Gear Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is constructed from aero aluminum alloy and ABS. The adjustable beam is complemented by convex len-focusing to deliver an even intensity of light across the entire range, ensuring visual clarity. Mr. Murry is so impressed with the quality of this headlamp that he has brought extras for his crew and for use around the home:
“Every time I go on a shoot, crew people use all of my extra headlamps. I have bought 10 so far. I’d advise you to buy at least five because every one of your friends who sees it will want their own. I use it at home to be able to read tiny directions on medication bottles and in my handyman tasks under the house. So glad I bought them.”
The Outdoor Pro Gear Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is sold on Amazon.com. It is operated using three AA batteries, which will provide 33 hours of continuous lighting. Available in a range of colors, the Outdoor Pro Gear Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is currently discounted to more than half the normal retail price. This special offer is only available for a limited time.
I am often asked if the Outdoor Pro Gear LHB-1000 headlamp will fit on a bicycle helmet. I will have to admit, I don’t own a bike. So I have to rely on others to answer this one for me.
Today I received an email from a customer that talks about this exact thing. I thought this would be a great place to share the information.
The LHB-1000 Headlamp “fits really, really well on the Schwinn Swift bike helmet Model SW77534-2. The battery pack fits solidly into the space in the rear of the helmet (no extra straps or velcro needed), and the light can be easily fixed to the front of the helmet with two or three short velcro straps. There are enough air holes in the helmet to allow just about any arrangement.”
This helmet is only $20 at Walmart and has some nice features.
Schwinn Swift Black Helmet, Adult:
EZ Snap pinch-free magnetic buckle allows for quick 1-handed latching and unlatching
In-mold technology provides a highly durable lightweight helmet
Dial fit offers 100 percent adjustability for larger or smaller heads
Optimal flow vents keep you cool
Rear exhaust ports for enhanced air flow
Large heat sealed surrounding pad system for ultimate comfort
We’ve certainly had our share of reviewers that talk about using the LHB-1000 while bicycling. Here are a few of them.

Murray | Amazon Review
I bought 2 and just got back from Yosemite where they came in handy while biking, hiking and walking around camp. Easy to put on and take off and durable if you drop it. – L. Eltringham | Amazon Review
Unbelievably bright and the light is very even, unlike normal flashlights that have a single bright spot in the middle and rings or streaks. I like the fact that the battery compartment is on the back of the head strap, lessening the weight of the light in the front. I also really like that it uses normal AA batteries instead of the weird rechargables that some ultra-bright LED lamps require. The strap adjust to fit snugly directly on my head but can be adjusted to fit over a bike helmet as well. – D. James | Amazon Review
