BOULDER, Colo. – The new portable rechargeable headlamp from Nite Ize may be the first combination waterproof, rechargeable, dual-power, two color LED, multi-mode headlamp ever. Even if it is not, it’s a great idea.
This 280 Lumen STS PowerSwitch Headlamp was engineered to run on dual power sources – a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery pack (included) or three AAA alkaline batteries. The battery pack is easily removed and recharged with an included micro USB cable in just two hours. While charging, the headlamp can continue to run on AAA batteries.
“This ‘PowerSwitch’ concept is very advanced,” Nite Ize Founder and CEO Rick Case said. “The ability to remove the battery pack and switch power sources quickly and easily for continued use is a big deal. There is no down time during charging which is a striking difference between other rechargeable lighting options.”
The waterproof, impact-resistant polycarbonate body houses both white and red LEDs and features a “Swipe-To-Shine” touch activated interface that allows for access to four lighting modes: high, variable dim, strobe, and lock-out.
To activate, simply swipe across the top of the headlamp along the path of the white or red colored arrows or swipe twice in the same direction for flashing mode in that color. To adjust the brightness of either color LED, swipe in that color’s direction, and within two seconds press a finger on the pad and hold until you have the exact amount of light needed. The LED will automatically adjust until released. With a convenient lock-out mode, users will stay stress free knowing that the headlamp will not turn itself on while transporting or storing.
The INOVA STS PowerSwitch Dual Power Rechargeable Headlamp comes with a strap that is easily adjusted. the product’s MSRP is $59.99.
“I have wanted to build a high performance, rechargeable, waterproof headlamp for a while now,” Case said. “Having the option to recharge instead of only replace batteries means less consumable waste, a better user experience and better value over time. I like the versatility of charging options but there is so much more to this headlamp – it is the first of its kind to combine such important features like waterproofing, Swipe-To-Shine technology and multiple power options.”
