Comfort and Balance
Foxelli USB rechargeable headlamp is very comfortable to wear due to its lightweight and well-fitting design, because of it’s elastic strap headband you are able to easily adjust it according to the size of your head.
The battery of this device is located at the back and as a result, it balances perfectly with the lamp that is on your forehead. The lamp is well connected with the battery using a flexible cable that is fixed to the elastic headband by use of plastic loops.
The Foxelli USB Rechargeable Headlamp is designed to produce five various modes with one-button control. There is Ultra Bright mode, then Bright, Average, Minimum, and the Emergency Flashing mode.
The maximum and ultra-bright modes are the brightest. It produces 200 lumens in the maximum mode and 280 lumens in the ultra-bright mode. The other modes are used when lesser light is required.
Spot or Flood
More so, it has the focus and the wide beams, focus beam is used to concentrate the light on one particular target or spot. While the wide beam is used in case you want to cover a larger area.
Its brightness, especially in the ultra-bright mode can light for as far as 400 ft. In case you switch it to minimum mode, the brightness is sufficient enough to provide light inside your tent when you are out camping and just require reading light.
This device contains a polymer 1800mAh battery that is rechargeable with the use of a USB cable.
The fact that it is rechargeable makes it very cost-effective, saving you the cost of new batteries each and every time they are fully drained. The battery is also long-lasting especially when you maintain it well.
Once you buy the Foxelli USB Rechargeable Headlamp, then you will not complain about the battery or replace it any time soon.
Due to the fact that it has a 1800mAh battery, it means the battery can hold a maximum charge that is capable of providing light for several days and more when you are out camping. When you switch it to minimum mode, it can provide about 100 hours of constant light.
The average mode will provide about 15 hours of bright and clear light. If you desire the ultra-bright mode, the charge is able to last for up to 8 hours of incomparable brightness, Keeping in mind you will probably only use the light for a couple of hours each night
Waterproof & Durable
This Foxelli USB Rechargeable Headlamp Is designed in consideration of the fact that it is mainly used outdoors. As a result, water or rain splashing on the light should not affect its performance. Research shows that it can be submerged in more than 3 feet of water for about 30 minutes.
Owing to this reason, it is said to have met the IPX7 standard. More so, it tends to last for a long period of time because it cannot be damaged when it falls down on the ground.
In addition, it is not affected in any way by cold weather or heat. As a result of withstanding all these and other harsh conditions, it can be said to be durable.
However, you should keep in mind that after five minutes or less, the ultra-bright mode switches to average mode automatically. This happens so as to reduce the rate of power consumption.
As a result, it lasts you for a longer period of time. When you want the visual distress mode, you just have to press and hold the button for about 2 seconds and there you have it.
Due to this feature, the Foxelli USB Rechargeable Headlamp is simple and easy to use.
Foxelli USB Rechargeable Headlamp weighs 4.4 ounces. Due to this, it is extremely portable. Therefore, it is ideal for hiking, mountaineering, trekking, and camping.
More so, it can be suitable for running since it sits well over the head and doesn’t feel heavy at all. Then after all the action you can lay down and read a book with it sitting on your head
In case you do not have any other source of light, then Foxelli USB Rechargeable headlamp should be your device to use.
It takes about 2 hours to charge and after that, it can take you another 100 hours of constant light on a single charge. Then again, the fact that it is rechargeable means you can top up the charge when sleeping.
More so, you can charge it when riding your motorcycle or in your car when driving since it uses a USB cable that you can plug it in the USB port of your vehicle. It is light therefore it does not seem like luggage when packing light.
Price and Compare
The price of this headlamp is affordable and I believe it offers good value for money compared with other similar headlamps.
What Are The Benefits To You?
Being just 4.4 ozs makes the headlamp very comfortable to wear due to its lightweight, and a well-fitting design and wide elastic strap headband you will feel at ease during most activities including running. Which means it won’t cause a headache which is a nice benefit.
A very convenient and wide range of light modes, from
- Ultra Bright – 280 lm up to 400ft
- Bright – 200 lm up to 260ft
- Average – 95 lm up to 130ft
- Minimum – 12 lm up to 35ft
- Emergency Flashing SOS Mode. You will have a light for all occasions.
Two beams allow a little versatility in the headlamp if you want to focus with a spotlight maybe while hunting or a wider beam when hiking or running this Foxelli gives us that ability to change it up.
Having options always makes life less stressful but the benefits are always out front when you have choices.
Rechargeable makes it very cost-effective, saving you money which is always a great benefit. Batteries are not cheap and multiple uses soon drain even the best brands.
So the cost of buying batteries, can quickly add up and outweigh the initial cost of buying rechargeable.
Takes only 2 hours to fully charge the headlamp from any USB port which will, in turn, give you up to 100 hours of battery life.
It is quite common that we usually have a USB close by these days even in extreme activities so you should never run out of battery power.
While we are told it is waterproof and can be submerged under 3 feet of water for 30 minutes, I would open the casing and thoroughly dry the components as soon as I could after any major wet experience.
- Nice and lightweight
- Looks good
- 5 Modes
- Rechargeable is the only way to go
- Will use battery power quickly on Ultra-Bright mode
