Flood Your Trail: BioLite’s New Pro-Level Headlamp

BioLite‘s first pro-level headlamp is chock-full of features to supercharge your lighting game. The HeadLamp 750 puts you in complete control of your illumination thanks to niche features including Constant Mode, Run Forever pass-thru charging, and eight (eight!) different lighting modes.

This lamp is for those who need extra illumination and performance. I.e., bikepackers, through-climbers, endurance athletes heading out on overnights. You don’t necessarily need a headlamp this powerful if you’re just weekend-camping on your favourite lake. But on the other hand, it’s so streamlined and light that why wouldn’t you want to pack it? For all its raw power (for example, its beam distance is 100 metres) it weighs just 150 grams.

A bit of explanation about the Constant Mode: Most headlamps auto-regulate brightness to conserve battery life, dimming over time. This works out efficiently in many cases, but shouldn’t be the only mode available for dealing with technical terrain or deep darkness. Constant Mode puts you in complete control of your lumens, enabling you to set a steady level of brightness that will not dim (unless you tell it to).

The Run Forever feature also needs a bit of explanation. As a USB-rechargeable headlamp, you can extend Headlamp 750 runtimes indefinitely thanks to “pass-through” charging.  This means that unlike most rechargeable lamps, you can use it while simultaneously powering it up: the included 90 cm Run Forever cable enables you to connect to an external compact powerbank in your vest or pack. So when you’re doing a lot of night work, you don’t have to worry about losing your light mid-mission.

Another pro feature worth noting is the tail light mode so you can illuminate the back of your head if you’re the lead in a group, or road-biking/running at night.

This headlamp has a lot of features and you’ll want to review the available videos/manuals before use.
