The Black Diamond Headlamp is a battery-operated headlamp. It is very small and of high quality and can be worn comfortably on the head. In its handling, it is a bit more complicated at the beginning and it can be adjusted to 5 different light cones. The headlamp has a very high luminous intensity and a pleasant light cone, which shows a light yellow/green hue in itself.
The Black Diamond Headlamp is powered by 3 AAA batteries, which are included in the delivery. These must first be inserted into the battery compartment in the lamp. This can be opened easily.
First of all, you have to adjust the headband to the size that suits you best. Once you have put on the headlamp, you can switch it on by pressing the button on the top and adjust it to its 5 different light settings:
The lamp has three light cones. The first time you press it, the left light cone switches on. The light can be dimmed by holding down the button for a long time. On the right side of the lamp, there is a touch switch, which activates all light cones. If you press the button with a triple-click, the light starts flashing.
There is also a red light. To switch from white light to red light, press and hold the button for 2 seconds and the red light will turn on. This can also be made to blink by clicking three times. To return to the white light, press and hold the button for 3 seconds.
The operation of this lamp is a bit more complicated and extensive at first. Additionally, the operation is only described with illustrations and without text. But once you've got the hang of it, this lamp offers many different options.
The tilt of the lamp can be adjusted in 4 different angles.
The lamp sits comfortably on the head due to its small size. It can be fixed and does not slip even with stronger movement. It is noticeable that in the brightest setting there is a yellow-greenish hue in the light.
At maximum brightness, the lamp has a luminous intensity of 1370 lux.
After usage of 3 hours at maximum brightness, the luminous intensity is about 50 lux.
