Teekland Glare Headlight 1825A
Declaration & Thanks:
This light was provided by Tmart for the purpose of this review
A very good headlamp with broad ability and diversity.
Info about my reviews and testing:
I like to keep my reviews fairly informal and not overly technical. There are plenty of talented people with fancy measuring devices to offer more technical detail. What I want to do is give an honest appraisal of owning and using this torch, and what a regular punter will make of it.
What’s in the box?
The headlamp, headstrap, battery case and bike handlebar bracket.
Exterior Design & Ergonomics:
The quality of this light feels very good indeed, much more on par with headlights costing more. The strap is nicely adjustable and the main structure of the lamp holder assembly is very very sturdy, with no wobble in the beam while you are moving about. I also found it to be comfortable to wear.
The UI is a simple scroll through affair, so you have to go through all modes each time you use the light. But it’s not a big deal in my opinion and it keeps operation very simple, as you just have one button.
Off -> Main LED only -> side LEDs only -> All 3 LEDs -> Strobe -> Off.
The bike handlebar mount is a nice touch too and is simple and quick to use, with the main body of the light unclipping from the headstrap.
See the YouTube video for more on the light.
I can detect no PWM at all on this headlamp. Tint is cool white, but it is white and no other colour, so perfectly acceptable in my opinion.
The main beam has a big hotspot thanks to it’s SMO reflector. It isn’t a super long distance beam, but offers adequate range for a headlamp. The spill beam is smooth and bright.
The little side lights can be moved up or down easily, to get just the angle you want illuminated. I found this to be highly useful. Their beam is also a super smooth floody beam, with no noticeable hotspot at all, thanks to the trick lens diffusers.
Running both lights in combination offers up a huge amount of really useful illumination. And the ability to angle the side LEDs separately to the main LED allow you to light up a much wider area than is usually possible with a headlamp, while still retaining a good beam distance.
Side LEDs angled slightly downwards
All 3 LEDs
The back of the battery box also illuminates Red while the lamp is in use
Very impressive illumination and a nice stable platform.
