“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. Outdoor Pro Gear is confident that the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 will be the number one top selling headlamp before the year is out.
