This light is one of the most widely advertised as a brighter and more durable light compared to standard flashlights or headlights. The headlight is part of a set of lights including tactical headlamps, headlights, lanterns, and flashlights.
- Strobe Safety Feature
The different lights available give you in theory the option of stoning an attacker or signaling for help using the strobe function. Of course the stroke function is not meant to prevent attacks or be a long-term solution but merely a short-term solution giving you the chance to get away.
- Use for Camping
Headlights are very valuable in many situations. Those who work at home around the house, around the yard, and even people who use them for field exercises such as hunting or camping can benefit greatly. People who are camping, for example, can chop wood with both of their hands in the late of night and still be able to see what they're chopping. This will help them to pick the best wood for the fire that is dry.
- Home Uses
If you were working around the house late at night, you can find your way across the yard. Should your plumbing become problematic you can work under the sink or in a small crawlspace or attic with this headlight and still give yourself the ideal lighting when and where you need it.
A lot of issues people come across with flashlights is that when they use both hands for the project in question someone else has to hold the flashlight. They have t then try to get the light to create the perfect angle or alleviate the right shadows. However, with the headlamp you can simply turn your head to the exact angle you need to allow the perfect light.
How It Works
The bright light affixes to an adjustable headband. You put the headband over your head and feed it to your head size. Compared to regular flashlights this light is extremely bright and it will shine wherever you are looking. You can adjust the settings up to 90°. There's also a button on the side of the light which lets you change different settings. You can run through the on or off settings, a highlight setting, a low light setting, or a strobe light setting. This hands-free version of a regular flashlight is able to withstand extreme temperatures in addition to physical punishment because of the materials from which it is constructed.
How it's Different from Competitors
This headlight does perform as effectively as expected. It will give you the perfect hands-free light when you're working on your car. Also, when you are in a dark area, or when you are looking under the sink trying to fix a problem with your drain. The product stands out among its competitors insofar as it works very well.
The product claims to be the same material and grade used by the US special forces. All of the atomic beam lights are purportedly made with the same tactical technology that US Special Forces use. However, this requires some evaluation. Compared to civilian flashlights, tactical flashlights are meant to be much brighter. The reason for this is that the light coming off your headlamp is not meant to just provide light to the area in front of you. Also to temporarily stun or blind person who was at the receiving end of that light. Tactical lights are also very strong, lightweight, made of durable construction, and have the ability to be mounted to a firearm. In this particular case, the atomic beam matches a broad definition of a tactical piece of technology even though it affixes to your head or, in theory, your helmet.
Evaluating the Light
One has to consider the brightness of the light itself. There is not a standard light output for any tactical light but the standard unit for measuring output for most normal lights is lumens. Their manufacturer states that this beam puts out 5000 LUX, but if you don't know the square footage of the area where this particular measurement was taken you cannot convert this figure into lumens. So you have no way of knowing what the actual lumens amount is. The company gives a lot of large numbers but they don't provide numbers which are useful in determining the real world power of this headlight or comparing the light to the competition. This website says things like 40 times brighter than competing lights but there's no way to tell if we don't have the lumens.
Evaluating the Strength
This particular unit is said to be impact resistant, that you can drop it or hit it again something and it will remain just fine. The idea behind this is that technically speaking if you have the headlight on your head and you're in the middle of a tactical situation you need it to be strong. You need it to be able to withstand impacts like shock or a blunt trauma without turning off. Their demonstrations used in the advertisement are not really situations where you would find yourself so the ability to withstand certain extreme conditions like ice or boiling oil does not give you much information. It is very similar to the LUX count.
Using this particular unit would save you time especially when you are working on projects around the house or out in the yard. Situations like these require both hands generally speaking or at the very least are expedited when you have both of your hands clear. If you're trying to hold a flashlight while doing something like fixing your car or plumbing, it will take you twice as long. However, it you have a headlamp, you can save time by operating hands-free.
There are plenty of headlights on the market today even tactical headlights. They range in price from about fifteen to one hundred dollars. The InnoGear 5000 lumen headlamp is one of the most popular options on the market because of its high-quality brightness and tough great aluminum casing.
