Basically as the title says.“When will BLF bring out their own Headlamp”
I have the BLF a6 and LOVE the damn thing and can’t wait for the Lantern to be finally be produced… From everything I come across when ever BLF produce a light they are way a head of others but so far can find a BLF headlamp… SO BLF when will you be doing one??? I for one would be having a few and am sure there will be MANY others…
Why don’t you? and then you get to show what can really be done ?
Lumens is not main target for headlamp, most would prefer hi-cri leds and no PWM driver.
Triple leds usually little more efficient than single one, carlco optics provide range of tirs (that are much more durable for headlamp than reflector), but main option - is there are any headlamp with regular 17mm driver that can be easily removed and changed/programmed by users preferences?
Also I need to say that extra weight is bigger problem than extra length for the headlamp.
Im sure I wont make more than 3pcs I have after lathe, and even they will take some time.
I think BLFers should contact Simon with this idea.
Yes all parts from convoy except head, glass and bezel.
Any regular 20mm triple board with any (one-side?) 17mm driver.
Honestly, I haven’t given it much thought. I just wanted a floody hiking light that is hands free and lightweight. My wife pointed out the the H03 might be too heavy for her head. It is nice to have other hands free light source other than a headlamp. Right now I just tie the H03 to her backpack strap.
Would be cool to have with 2*26650 or 2*21700 battery pack. Light but still has loads of juice. Those L-shape lamps are not for me. With so small mass can not get enough punch out of them.
Range 350m - high mode 2000lm+ continous.
There is many nice headlamps out but they all have something too little or too much For the same money you can get a much nicer flash light than a headlamp.
I think the closest to my liking is the Lupine Blika - 2 xgp and a xpl hi - range plus some flood for close work. Not too heavy or too big. But the price tag is wild wild…
I said plenty of good headlamps out there, you only want so much heat going to your forehead. The BLF lights produced so far are hot rodded, one of a kind(GT) as in size, or similar. The only headlamp I could think of is something like titanium with a copper heat sink but you have to keep weight in mind, nothing too heavy.
