A dependable headlamp is a must-have item for many camping adventures, hiking excursions and other activities that may require you to walk or work after dark. Keep the following points in mind as you explore the possibilities:
- A flood beam headlamp illuminates a wide area, allowing you to maintain awareness of your surroundings and keep track of objects on the ground. Flood style headlamps are a good choice for setting up camping tents, cleaning and other common campsite jobs.
- Spot beam headlamps provide a focused, high-intensity beam of light that illuminates a smaller area. These headlamps are popular for hiking, cycling and other activities that require a deeper field of vision in one direction.
- If your headlamp has multiple brightness settings, use the lowest setting that allows you to work or hike safely. An unnecessarily bright light will drain your lamp's batteries more quickly.
- Some headlamps feature regulated light sources, which provide full illumination until the battery is exhausted, rather than slowly dimming as battery power drops.
- Always pack a backup flashlight in case your headlamp experiences a malfunction.
- Before you head out onto the trail at night, be sure that you are aware of your headlamp's running time, so that your light source does not turn off when you are in an unfamiliar area. If your lamp is rechargeable, make sure it is fully charged before you begin your excursion. If you have a battery-powered headlamp, bring along a spare set of batteries just in case.
