Stowable Illumination: BioLite HeadLamp 200

Time to leave the disposable batteries behind. BioLite’s sleek new ultra-compact HeadLamp 200 delivers excellent fit, versatile lighting modes—and quick USB rechargeability. This thing is so lightweight and comfy, you’ll forget you’re wearing it. So you’ll keep it on your head where it belongs, and not around your neck.

For us the standout feature is the brightness this lamp can deliver, and with no bulky battery pack on the headband. (The power—a premium 700 mAh Lithium Ion battery—is integrated in a tiny package at the front.)

That makes the breathable, adjustable headband by far the most comfortable of any lamp we’ve tried. Another plus: so far, the on-button has proven impossible to accidentally engage when the headlamp is stowed away in a pocket or pack.
