Finally, the USB rechargeable flashlight rounds out the current line. This compact but extremely solid aluminum LED flashlight is what you’d expect based on what I’ve said about the headlamp and the Rover. It’s the brightest of the USB rechargeable options at up to 700 lumens, charges quickly, warns at half charge and low charge, and allows you to recharge via a standard USB power cable.
My past relationship with other headlamps has been somewhat contentious. The headlamps I’ve used in the past seem to die at the worst possible time and without warning. If they provide enough light it seems like they’re way too big and heavy (which means uncomfortable), or their battery life is insufficient. And even worse, it seems like the lightweight and compact headlamps are never really quite bright enough, like a frustrating dream where you just can’t quite get the light you need. (You’ve had these dreams, right?)
Overall these lights as accessories address many of the shortcomings of prior personal lighting solutions Ive used. No more dealing with dead batteries and hunting for replacements, no more low and fading light, and no more breakage after a minor drop. Now that weve been using these lights for a good while, we can absolutely say were fans.
Compared to the smaller 3x AAA battery powered headlamp to its left, you can see that the larger headlamp is certainly heavier, but also offers over 50% more lumens (475 on the brightest settings compared to 300 for the smaller headlamp). There are five different brightness settings, and the brightness you choose will allow the headlamp to run anywhere from two hours to an astounding 31 hours on a full charge, just depends on how bright you need the light to be.
When in use this flashlight has three different power settings: a high, low, and flash/alert, and does an amazing job lighting even distant areas. The rubber power button on the back is solid and easy to use with a very positive feel. You wont accidentally end up turning the light on or off.
Clip the light onto the strap and use the buckle to adjust the strap to the required size. Use the included clips to attach to a hard hat. Rotate the light up or down as needed. Press the power button to turn the light on and off. Press the mode button to cycle through Spot/Flood, Flood High, Flood Medium, Flood Low, and Spot. The fuel gauge will display the battery life:
Do not expose your battery to water or rain, or allow it to get wet. This could damage battery. Do not use oil or solvents to clean or lubricate your battery. The plastic casing will become brittle and crack, causing a risk of injury. Store batteries at room temperature away from moisture. Do not store in damp locations where corrosion of terminals may occur. As with other battery types, permanent capacity loss can result if the pack is stored for long periods of time at high temperatures (over 50°C (120°F). MILWAUKEE® Li-Ion batteries maintain their charge during storage longer than other battery types. After about a year of storage, charge the battery as normal. MILWAUKEE® Li-Ion batteries are more environmentally friendly than some other types of power tool batteries. Always dispose of your battery according to federal, state and local regulations. Contact a recycling agency in your area for recycling locations. Even discharged batteries contain some energy. Before disposing, use electrical tape to cover the terminals to prevent the battery from shorting, which could cause a fire or explosion.
During use, when the battery charge reaches 3%, the main LED and charge indicator will flash, indicating up to 5 minutes of runtime remains. Prior to immediate shutdown, the main LED will flash 3 times, then the tool will shutdown. Remaining runtime may be less than 5 minutes if the light is turned on when battery capacity is already 0-3%. Press the power button to cycle through on, strobe and off. Press and hold the power button to turn off without cycling.
To reduce the risk of fire, personal injury, and product damage due to a short circuit, never immerse your tool, battery pack or charger in fluid or allow a fluid to flow inside them. Corrosive or conductive fluids, such as seawater, certain industrial chemicals, and bleach or bleach-containing products, etc., can cause a short circuit.
Clean out dust and debris from charger vents and electrical contacts by blowing with compressed air. Use only mild soap and a damp cloth to clean the battery and charger, keeping away from all electrical contacts. Certain cleaning agents and solvents are harmful to plastics and other insulated parts. Some of these include gasoline, turpentine, lacquer thinner, paint thinner, chlorinated cleaning solvents, ammonia and household detergents containing ammonia. Never use flammable or combustible solvents around batteries, charger, or tools.
