BioLite’s entry-level ultralight HeadLamp

200 Lumens | Dimmable Red | Only 69g | Big Front Button | Four Color Options

Who it’s great for

Hikers, campers, kids, nighttime readers, backup drawers in the house

MSRP

For those who may be new to rechargeable headlamps, this is an excellent first step into the category. This ultralight headlamp features a super streamlined design, with both power and lighting co-located at the front (great for those who like to lean back and read at the end of the day). A large front button makes the unit especially easy to operate, a nice detail if you’re looking to use it with gloves or giving it to a kid. At only 50g this is a no-brainer to bring with you on any journey or keep stowed in a go-bag for backup lighting. Watch the video.

HeadLamp 330

What is it? 

BioLite’s mid-range HeadLamp - a best of both worlds.

Noteworthy Features

330 Lumens | 9mm front | Only 69g | Rear power-source | Four Color Options

Who it’s great for

Hikers, campers, runners, mechanics, home improvement pros

MSRP

$59.95

The one that started it all, HeadLamp 330 was BioLite’s first entry into the headlamp space, selling out in record speed during its Kickstarter campaign back in fall 2018. It’s gone on to win numerous awards from the likes of Runner’s World, Popular Mechanics, and more thanks to its game-changing design. We’ve heard audible gasps when people try it on for the first time, and the 9mm front basically disappears off your face (another reason it’s a great choice for working under the car, in a cabinet, or other around-the-house projects). At 330 lumens this delivers ample brightness for most activities while the no-bounce no-slip design means it’ll stay put and stay comfortable. Watch the video.

HeadLamp 750 is a beast – in a good way. This model delivers crazy brightness and competitive runtimes, all in a form factor that shaves meaningful grams off the competition. A unique setting called constant mode means users can maintain full brightness without any automated dimming, a clutch feature for technical terrain. With the power source on the back of your head, HeadLamp 750 also features pass-thru charging with an included 3 foot cable that you can connect to a powerbank in vest or pack for extended runtimes (overnight ultras, we’re looking at you). A bit burlier than our other models, HeadLamp 750 still delivers amazing fit and comfort thanks to integrated electronics and a rear power unit that helps distribute weight across the band. This model is a great pick for those who are looking for big specs and big performance. Watch the video.
