Biolite HeadLamp 200 Ultra-lightweight USB Headlamp

If you’ve kept up with some of our recent posts, you may recall our high regard for Biolite’s one of a kind stuffsack. Now pivoting to the battle for the best-rated headlamps out there – it truly feels a lot like it’s between all the ordinary brands in the market today and the one brand that has largely been synonymous with excellence – Biolite. And, it seems there are plenty of reasons why the latter deserves all the praise it’s been garnering. Especially with their revolutionary HeadLamp 200.  

Comfy and Ultra-Lightweight: Biolite HeadLamp 200

Despite being the latest addition in BioLite’s lineup, this headlamp embodies all that’s great about a well-designed lamp. It is a solid piece: lightweight, yet engineered to last, powerful with several lighting modes, and USB rechargeability! 

Reviews say it all; at just 50 grams, it is so lightweight that the wearer may even forget that they’ve been wearing it. In fact, it’s possible to put it on for hours and perhaps even forget it’s on your noggin!

Interestingly, it’s quite amazing how this Biolite HeadLamp 200 is so comfy. It’s almost OK for the common brands to cause headaches and aches after hours of wearing them. Perhaps that’s why many rate them so low!

But unlike those chumps, this unique wearable headlamp features a soft moisture-wicking technical band that tightens to fit well – no bounce or slips. The headband is easily adjustable for a softer fit and never loosens, even if one moves around.

Perhaps the greatest feature of this headlamp is the bright light it shines. It comes in White + Dim, Red + Dim, White Strobe, and Red Strobe modes, and essentially suits everyone’s lighting needs. The 200 lumens responsible for all these different beams, and the guaranteed 40hrs (3hr in HI Mode) of constant light means Biolite HeadLamp 200 truly is a quality device.

YES, it’s rechargeable via Micro USB

There’s a USB charging cable that comes included. That effectively means that there’s no need to invest in Lithium-ion batteries anymore. Just a couple of hours of charging and the headlamp beams again. 

It’s so easy to use too. It comes with a single button that switches from one beam mode to the next – quite convenient! The front panel holding the lamp tilts down smoothly too, allowing for variant angles of visibility.

So all that to say, if you’re in the market for a headlamp with powerful beams, soft bands, and long battery life, there’s no better option than the BioLite Headlamp 200. It is as good for runners, hikers, and pet-walkers as it is a great pick for even nighttime sledding.
