Re­Volt

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

This head­lamp of­fers a tightly fo­cused white spot­light, dif­fuse white flood­light, and di­rectly ac­ces­si­ble red set­ting. Each can be ac­ti­vated in­di­vid­u­ally, or both spot­light and flood can be used si­mul­ta­ne­ously. Con­trols are sim­ple, and each light source can be pre­cisely dimmed by hold­ing down the power but­ton. The Re­Volt can run on com­mon AAA dis­pos­ables or the NiMH bat­ter­ies it comes with — the lat­ter set is recharge­able via a hid­den mi­cro-USB port, but of­fers sub­stan­tially lower out­put (175 lu­mens) and run­time (75 hours). But at a sub-$50 street price, over­all value is quite good.

PROS:

Three in­di­vid­u­ally dimmable LEDs let you quickly ac­cess the ex­act type of light you need Lock­out mode re­moves the risk of ac­ci­den­tal ac­ti­va­tion in stor­age

IPX8 wa­ter­proof to 1.1-me­ter im­mer­sion

CONS:

Max out­put is dra­mat­i­cally re­duced when us­ing the in­cluded recharge­able bat­ter­ies Bat­tery door clo­sure re­lies on a long plas­tic tab, and we can see the po­ten­tial for break­age
