There are plenty of small headlamps out there, but the new BioLite...
In Issue 27 of our magazine, we published a Headlamp Buyer’s Guide which included 12 headlamps that provide hands-free light for hiking, camping, hunting, or survival situations. The MH6 from Ledlenser was featured in this guide, and we recently learned that the company has expanded its headlamp line with three new Outdoor Series models: MH3, MH5, and MH7.
These headlamps are priced at $30, $50, and $70, and all use Ledlenser’s Advanced Focus System to allow the wearer to adjust the beam pattern by twisting the bezel. Each is available in black, blue, or green color. The mounting system is also detachable, allowing the lights to be hand-held or worn on a shirt or belt. Beyond these similarities, we’ll outline the differences between these new headlamps below.
The MH3 runs on a single AA battery, and produces 200 lumens. The MH5 is powered by a USB-rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, and produces 400 lumens with a run time up to 35 hours. The MH7 can be powered by either the included lithium-ion pack or disposable batteries, and includes a quick-connect magnetic USB charger. It also features a red LED to preserve night vision. Run time is up to 60 hours.
