The Fenix HL10 headlamp puts 70 lumens of output in an ultra light case that opens to release a mini flashlight. Three brightness levels deliver a 90 degree beam with a 100 degree tilt inside a durable case that measures less than 3”.
This is the perfect ultra light, ultra compact, walking/hiking/biking light. It's difficult to capture just how compact and lightweight this torch is. We are thrilled with the dual-use capabilities of the HL10. The light detaches from the headband making it simple to attach to a keychain or stuff in to a pocket.
Running on a single AAA battery, the HL10 headlamp puts out an amazing amount of light. On low power (3lm) objects are visible in pitch black conditions with the added comfort of knowing this flashlight will run for well over 24 hours. At medium power (27lm) objects 20 feet away are illuminated in moderate detail. Larger objects such as 4" fence panels are discernible out to 40 feet. On high power (70lm) moderate to fine detail (blades of crab grass for example) is visible out to 35 feet. Maximum distance is given as 50 feet (15m).
The headband, measuring 0.63 inches (16mm) in width is comfortable and easy to adjust. A single clip controls the size adjustment. No complicated slip adjustments, just one spring activated pinch clip.
The HL10 operates in the same manner as most E-series lights. To turn on/off, depress and hold the all purpose switch until the emitter bursts in to light. A single click of the switch will adjust the brightness level when the light is powered on. The torch cycles from low to medium to high; output setting is retained between power cycles.
With an IPX-8 rating, the HL10 will remain operational in up to 6.5 feet (2m) of water.
With a flat bottom tail cap it's easy to stand the flashlight on end when removed from the headband case.
*The headlamp will drop in to medium output mode after running in high output mode for 5 minutes.
