Quality LED long range head torch that can reach max 500 m

Dear folks

 

I am looking to buy decent quality LED long range head torch that can reach max 500 m

 

Preferably has two modes ,,,,,focus beam and spread one

 

Budget max $200

 

Thanks

 

I have bought one hand held torch (forum recommendation)  but realized it is hard to hold in one hand and use other hand to do work

I can’t believe this hasnt been blasted with posts. The emissar D1S, Lumintop ODL20C, Astrolux FT02, KD c8.2 (xhp35 HI emitter). All have throw exceeding your 500m requirement with decent spill and are all under $75. There are many others as well.
Early testing of the Astrolux latest FT03 show great potential but I have personal concerns about astrolux quality and lack of warranty support.

light addict....yeah I've got the bug.

Actually, the reason people haven’t jumped on this post is because he is looking for a super throwy… HEADLAMP.

That’s where the problem comes from.

Gotcha, didn’t catch the “head torch” meaning.

Nitecore HC33? Nowhere near 500m throw though. Not aware of anything that will do that without modifying one.

I know you said LED but saw this on Aliex the other day and I’ll bet this could do it. Smile

If you really need 500m throw then you would need a headlamp with a large reflector or maybe a large zoomie. And if you need to see something 500 hundred meters away you probably need a light that is rated to far more than 500 meters. I have a bunch of headlamps and the throwiest I got is the nicron h30. I measured 22KCd (~300m) with the stock XML LED. Ugly UI but it’s very easy to do an emitter swap so you can swap in a xpl-hi, sst-20 or White flat to get more throw. Difinitely won’t reach 500 meters though. The 34mm nitecore diffuser fits very well if you need it to be floody. Throw and flood in the same headlamp I only know of the fenix hp30r or those expensive caving headlamps (Scurion, Phaeton, El Speleo etc.). Again, I doubt they they reach 500m. If I had to guess probably up to 200 meters.
