Coleman 3AAA .5-Watt Headlamp

WICHITA, Ks. - Coleman's new Exponent® line of battery-powered headlamps merges convenience with rugged quality. These bright LED lights featuring LEDs are lightweight, durably constructed, and were created to meet the demands of today's adventure lifestyles. Beyond their rugged functionality, they are easy to use, easy to pack, easy to carry, and relatively easy on the pocketbook.

The allure of hands-free operation makes headlamps a popular choice among adventurers. The Exponent line offers two model choices - a 3AAA .5-Watt Headlamp and a 4AA 1-Watt Headlamp. The 3AAA model has five .5-watt LEDs - three bright white and two red. The 4AA model also has five LEDs - one ultra bright white 1-watt Cree Xlamp® XR-E LED in the center, two bright white .5-watt bulbs, and two red .5-watt bulbs. Both models can be switched to a wide-beam path of light with the red LEDs providing enhanced night vision. An emergency strobe mode is provided on both models. The headlamps each have three-strap headbands for a snug fit that is comfortable yet secure.
