I’m a bit of a flashlight and headlamp junkie. I probably got into it when I started backpacking and winter camping and it evolved into the job-site. I learned early on that not only does a headlamp frees my hands to perform the task at hand but it puts the light directly where my eyes are. When choosing a headlamp weight is always a consideration since it will sit on top of your head. Battery source is the second consideration. Are the batteries needed easily obtained locally?
DEWALT recently released a 2 ounce, water and impact (up to 2 meters) resistant jobsite headlamp – model DWHT70440. The DWHT70440 emits 104 lumen and can run up to 6 hours on the high light output setting. An additional low setting emits 25 lumen and has a run time 29 hours. That’s impressive run time.
The DEWALT Job-site Headlamp DWHT70440 runs off of 3 AAA batteries, has a 3 year limited warranty, and sells for approximately $24.99.
