Large, battery-operated headlamp, with many light cone settings, but with low light intensity and inconvenient wearing comfort.

The Outerdo Headlight is a battery-powered headlight. Due to the large lamp and the large battery compartment, it causes slight discomfort. It has a large variety in the light cone settings and is easy to use, but the light intensity is very weak and the light cone small.
The Outerdo headlamp is powered by two recharcheable batteries, which must be inserted into a battery compartment at the back of the headband. It is also possible to operate the headlamp with non-recharcheable batteries.
For the time being, the headband can be adjusted to the appropriate size. When placed on the head, the lamp can be switched on by pressing a button on the upper side of the lamp once. The lamp has 8 different light cone settings, which can be adjusted by repeated pressing.
In total there are 6 light cones, which always illuminate in two pairs. First, the two middle light cones illuminate, which lead to a narrow light cone. After that, the two outer ones illuminate and then all four. By pressing the button again, the four light cones start flashing, after which the lamp switches off again.
If you keep the button pressed for 2 to 3 seconds, the two small outer light cones light up. If you press the button again, the light intensity will be reduced. A red light then illuminates and this can also be made to flash again.
If you press the button a fifth time, the lamp switches off again.
There is also a red light on the back of the headlamp in the battery compartment. This can be switched on using a button on the left side of the battery compartment. Press once to turn it on, press twice to flash the red light and press three times to turn it off.
The inclination of the lamp can be adjusted in 5 different angles.
The lamp has a firm fit on the head by the forehead/head straps, also with stronger movement. However, the fit of the lamp is not very comfortable. Due to their large and hard surfaces, the battery and the lamp press uncomfortably on the back of the head and on the forehead.
At maximum brightness, the lamp has a luminous intensity of 400 lux. The light cone is quite small and weak.
After a usage of 4 hours at maximum brightness, the luminous intensity is about 27 lux.
