The Black Diamond Sprinter Headlamp is a high-output, rechargeable lighting system, designed for running, hiking and any other activities when the sun goes down.
Black Diamond says:
Designed for everyday pre-dawn/post-sunset use, the USB-rechargeable Sprinter, now with 200 lumens of power, is ready for any trail in any weather.
With a sleek rechargeable design and excellent fore-aft balance, the 200-lumen Black Diamond Sprinter Headlamp is a versatile, all-weather light that's ideal for high-impact use on the trail or the skin track. A red taillight strobe in the rear adds visibility in urban areas but can be turned off when you’re on the trails. The lithium polymer battery recharges through a USB port in 5 hours, and a stormproof design keeps it going strong in any weather with regulation for constant illumination throughout the battery life.
Black Diamond's Sprinter Headlamp is a great headlamp for runners who want to get moving come rain or shine, day or night. When using the light on the maximum 200 lumens, you still get a solid 4 hours battery life out of it which is more than enough for my runs. And if your really determined to run longer than 4 hours you can easily turn down the strength with a simple tap of the headlamp.
The front light casts a nice flood light that allows you to see up to 50 metres and the back red LED has a steady on/flashing/blinking and off mode which is great for keeping you seen and safe by vehicles from behind.
I was worried it would be too heavy with the battery pack, but at only 105g with batteries you don't even notice it once you start running. The charging time is pretty reasonable too, just remember to pop it on charge as soon as your get in from your run, that way it's ready to go the next time you need it.
