Lights Chargers and Batteries

These lights vary from the classic 'backup on the side of the helmet' to very high end products. Our main ranges come from Fenix and Petzl, both of which are reputable companies which produce reasonably robust products. We have tried to indicate broads spectrums of appropriate use as worked out by our own experience and customer feedback. There are no lights on here that we haven't tried out!

Fenix E12 (130 lumens) 
£21.60

Fenix E12 (130 lumens)

Fenix E12 LED torch, takes one AA battery. With three settings, this seems to be a nice balance between size, performance and price. The settings are: 130 lumens for 1 1/2 hours; 50 lumens for 6 1/2 hours; and 8 lumens for 40 hours. The last would at least allow for a lot of time at an underground camp, or changing batteries on main lamps! Weight is 29g without the battery, it is 9cm long and under 2cm wide; so it really should not be very noticeable on the head. It is also waterproof to 2m depth, is made of alloy for abrasion resistance, and uses a Cree EP - X2 LED for those to whom this detail means something.
Fenix HL50 (365 lumens) 
£42.60

Fenix HL50 (365 lumens)

Fenix HL50 LED headtorch, takes one AA battery, or one Lithium CR123 battery. Up to 365 lumen output. With three settings, and a brighter 'burst' setting, this seems to be a nice balance between size and performance at a snesible price for a high-end product. The special thing about the HL50 is that it can take a AA battery (cheap and easy to find, slightly lower performance although still good), or a CR123 battery (available from big supermarkets, dearer, high performance) The settings for the AA are: 150 lumens for 2 hours; 55 lumens for 6+ hours; and 3 lumens for 110 hours. Burst light 285 lumens. The settings for the CR123 Lithium are: 170 lumens for 3 hours; 60 lumens for 9 1/2 hours; and 4 lumens for 150 hours. Burst light 365 lumens. Press button operation, the 'burst' setting is a long-press feature i.e. it turns off when the switch is not pressed. The torch is a side emmitting LED arrangement, so it fits neatly on the elasticated headband (will fit around a neck, and on a...
CR123 Lithium Ion battery (fits HL50) 
£2.40

CR123 Lithium Ion battery (fits HL50)

Provided by Fenix, these are the most efficient batteries to use in the HL50. They are not rechargeable! These are prime cells for optimal performance, as recommended by Fenix for use in the HL50.

Fenix HL55 (900 lumens) 
£55.20

Fenix HL55 (900 lumens)

Fenix HL55 LED headtorch, takes one Lithium 18650 battery, or two Lithium CR123 batteries. Up to 900 lumens output in 'burst' mode. With four settings, and a brighter 'burst' setting, this seems to be a nice balance between size and performance at a good price for those who value lightness and brightness above long duration or multiple beam settings - ideal for digging and prospecting. The brightness / duration levels are: 420 lumens for 3.75 hours; 165 lumens for 10 hours; 55 lumens for 30 hours; and 10 lumens for 150 hours. Burst light gives around 900 lumens. Using press button operation, the 'burst' setting is a long-press feature i.e. it turns off when you let go of the switch. The torch fits neatly on the elasticated headband (will fit around a neck, and on a helmet at a stretch). It has a regulated output and polarity protection. Weight is 115g without the battery, the HL55 is c.8.5cm long and c.4.6cm wide; so it really should not be very noticeable to wear as a backup; and...
