Black Diamond's Revolt Headlamp seems to offer everything, a high output at 175 lumens from rechargeable or 300 lumens from standard batteries with a useful range of modes.
Black Diamond says:
A revolutionary waterproof and USB-rechargeable headlamp that also runs on standard AAA batteries, the Revolt is a full-featured, hybrid-power headlamp that dolls out a whopping 300 lumens of light.
Good functionality in Black Diamond's Revolt Headlamp and with a maximum output of 300 lumens (with alkaline batteries) its a more than capable beast. Add into that the rechargeable element of its performance and you have a really practical piece of kit.
Note that the unit will provide light output for much less time on a single charge of the NiMH batteries compared to the standard AAAs. So its not merely a rechargeable system but you might find yourself mixing and matching the batteries you use depending on the length of time you need light.
