The Next Generation In Top-Of-The-Line Headlamps Is Now Available

From Carbide to Cree. Headlamps Have Come a  Long Way.

Old Miner HeadlampHeadlamps have been around for decades, however initial designs were very crude, unreliable and often incredibly dangerous. Over the years, new designs have been developed to provide more reliable and powerful lighting options. Now company’s like Outdoor Pro Gear are delivering the next generation of sophisticated and refined designs revolutionizing headlamps and giving consumers more versatility than ever before.

In the late 1800’s carbide lamps were the dominate form of headlamps. These lamps ran on acetylene gas and had the potential to explode. Largely redundant now, carbide lamps are still occasionally used by cavers. Today modern headlamps run on batteries. The earliest versions were literally flashlights that could be worn on the head so that people could work hands-free. This is most certainly a big step up from carbides and hand-held devices that had to be propped up and aimed correctly for “hands-free” use. However, new advances in technology have brought about far more sophisticated designs.

Headlamps have really come a long way since their inception and now the next generation in headlamps has arrived,” says Outdoor Pro Gear founder, cranberry farmer and outdoorswoman Marci Murray. “Your typical hardware store headlamp is 25-100 lumens. That might be fine if you’re working on something 2 feet away. But for your average outdoorsman, hunters, fishermen, campers, backpackers and hikers, 100 lumens just isn’t going to cut it. We want more. We want intense light. We need to be able to see well and see far. Our headlamp, the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 (LHB-1000) is 1000 lumens. It’s not your average hardware store headlamp. This is a whole different animal. It is truly the next generation in headlamps.”

The Outdoor Pro Gear Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is a cut-above-the-rest. Not only does it deliver exceptional lighting, it’s also versatile. Featuring an adjustable telescopic zoom allowing for wide and narrow beams, users also have the option of high, low, and strobe lighting. Run on three AA batteries, this headlamp is exceptionally efficient and will provide light for around 33 hours. The quality Cree XM-L T6 LED bulb has an incredible 100, 000 hour lifespan, that’s approximately 11 years of continuously lighting!

While it may be expected to pay a small fortune for a Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp due to the superior design, it’s actually very affordable. Currently this product is on sale for $19.99 with free shipping when you buy 2 or more on Amazon.com. Outdoor Pro Gear also provides a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. People serious about lighting may wish to check this headlamp out, although it should be pointed out that at this low price supplies will run low quickly.

Disposable vs. rechargeable batteries: Which saves you more money?

BatteriesBatteries are an essential part of any headlamp.  Actually… the battery you chose is more important than you might think.

When we tested the LHB-1000 headlamp, the various batteries we used made a HUGE difference in the how long the headlamp ran and made some difference in how bright it was.

The bottom line was this: Choose the best battery you can buy. Disposable or rechargeable… buy the best. It most definitely makes a difference.

One consideration when buying batteries is whether you should buy disposable or rechargeable.  Do rechargeable batteries save you money in the long run? Kim Komando (The Digital Goddess) posted a wonderful article today addressing that exact question. It is well worth the read and should answer the question for you.
