Coast LED Lenser Revolution Headlamp (Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2006)

Coast introduced a new headlamp at the show. The Revolution headlamp which will be available within a few weeks is a 4.2 ounce singe LED headlamp powered by three AAA batteries. What makes this impressive is that the single LED is a 1.25 watt white LED that can burn at full power for several hours. This is achieved with circuitry that boosts the voltage of the three AAA batteries and also regulates the power flow. The result is not only an exceptionally bright headlamp but one that remains bright for a long time before fading. The Revolution also boast a dimmer switch on top of the adjustable housing. By swiveling the dimmer you can vary the intensity of the light from full to incredibly dim and thus greatly extend battery life.
