Description

Charge your headlamp at the office or at the trailhead.

Recharge your Black Diamond ReVolt Headlamp from a USB charger from your car or laptop. If you're in a pinch and can't recharge (a.k.a. camping), throw some some AAA batteries in. Dial in the right amount of light with proximity and distance settings, or throw yourself a quick little camp rave with the strobe setting. An adjustable headband lets you throw it on over your helmet when you're out biking, and a tilt function gets you the right angle for seeing what's coming at you. The three-level power meter takes the guesswork out of how much juice you have left.

It rocks.

-The headlamp comes with rechargeable batteries as well as 3 AAA Energizer alkaline batteries. Furthermore, the rechargeable batteries are branded as Black Diamond and say 1000 mAh on the side. In the manual, it says that you have to use these specific BD batteries to use the built in recharging function. Ostensibly, you cannot use any other brand of rechargeable batteries and use the built in charger. Curiously, it was completely out of battery when I got it. It turned on for about a second and after that all I got was the blinking red light.

-The charging port is a standard micro usb port and any micro usb cable will work with this. A micro usb cable is provided, but no wall adapter. Charging this thing fully over a computers USB port would take a really long time. It took 4-5 hours on a wall adapter to charge it the first time, but this will vary on which wall adapter and which micro usb cable you use.

-It looks really similar to the new Spot headlamps, and all the features and functions are the same as the 2014 Spot's, as far as I can tell. It's slightly less bright, 110 lumens vs 130 lumens.

-Not sure if Backcountry sells replacement batteries but you can buy the Black Diamond specific AAA batteries.

I used this headlamp for the first 500 miles of the PCT (my body broke before the headlamp). I just charged it in town and I was good to go. No buying batteries! I'd really love to see someone do scientific independent testing of this to see how the battery life really is on high and low.

It's easily bright enough for night hiking without putting it on the brightest mode. It's bright enough for easy trail running but not running fast or over technical terrain. (I use the Petzl NAO if I am going to be out running for a long time at night.)

Now I pretty much use it every weekend and it's just so brainless. I never have to worry about replacing my headlamp batteries before the next trip. I just charge it before the trip on the micro-USB chargers I already own.

Great headlamp

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great headlamp. The light is bright and dimable with red and flashing modes. The batteries last for many hours and the USB charger is perfect for charging from the car.

solid rechargeable headlamp

I have a few headlamps from different companies. all of them are good for their intended purpose. I like this one because it is rechargeable and bright. The batteries are kind of a pain in butt to access so the rechargeable option is nice. If you like helping out mother earth a little, rechargeable is the way to go.

The Only Headlamp you will ever need!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

BD really got it right with this one! After growing tired of constantly replacing batteries, I invested in this light! From early morning trail runs, to night skiing through the woods, and even for the mundane task of packing the car, this is perfect! Super bright, yet dims when needed to conserve battery life! Best feature is that you can recharge it quickly with the included USB cable. The original set of rechargeable batteries that came with the light lasted nearly a year! After seeing how well it worked, two of my sons purchased the same light - sometimes the old man does know what he's talking about!

Smart and Functional

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The ReVolt is the perfect addition to my backcountry skiing quiver and is a go-to for road trips. Being able to quickly recharge the battery via a solar panel or car port is very nice. The lamp is plenty bright in spotlight mode and the red night-vision setting is appreciated by my tent mates during bathroom breaks. I have even used the strobe light to liven up some impromptu Andean dance parties. On full output the battery life could be longer, but so far it hasn't left me in the dark.

Durable Headlamp

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have dropped, abused, and enjoyed this headlamp thoroughly ! It has endured moisture and dirt and this thing just keeps on beaming. Great rechargeable headlamp and if you forget to charge it just grab some normal batteries for your weekend!

nights aren't long enough..

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I find myself night hiking as often as possible after getting tis headlamp. There is plenty of power from either of the settings and with the dimmer function the battery life is spectacular! Although it did come with rechargeable batteries, I find myself using lithium batteries more often for a more powerful beam and a longer lasting battery life. Another great feature to this lamp is its ability to lock the power button so it doesn't accidentally turn on in your pack and waste precious battery life for playing in the dark! I highly recommend this to lamp to anyone who enjoys night hiking and is looking for a solid, reliable headlamp.
