Biolite Headlamp 330: Stand Above the Rest
As a trekker of over 15 years, I have come across over a dozen types of headlamps, none of which I deemed as the best. That’s true until Biolite Headlamp 330 came along. Most headlamps I have used faced numerous deficits ranging from dim lighting, poor battery life, uncomfortable fitting, to weight issues, among a few others.
Biolite seems to have found solutions to some, if not all, of the problems above.
Biolite Headlamp 330 is a rechargeable headlamp via micro USB. That in and of itself makes it stand out. With a rechargeable headlamp, I no longer have to take extra batteries which means less weight on the trail. Amazingly, Biolite happens to be lightweight, as well, compared to other headlamps in the market.
As to its lighting capabilities, this product has a maximum output of 330 lumens; hence, it’s bright! Plus, it comes in a number of settings including the night vision which I always find useful to prevent annoying my fellow trekkers at night.
It’s also perfect for stargazing and creating amazing shots, like this one:
I also love the versatility of the light in terms of its tilting function which I find very useful on a night hike. But one last note here to be made is how comfortable this headlamp is. I have always grappled with headlamps that were either too tight or too lose. Biolite 330 managed to find perfection in terms of comfort and fit, so much so that I always forget I’m wearing it.
When it comes to head lamps, Biolite stands out on so many levels. I never had to call any one specific head lamp as the best because none of them presented itself to be exactly that…until now.
Biolite Headlamp 330 no doubt stands out above the rest. I cannot wait to see how far it’ll go with me when I do longer treks in the Peruvian Andes and beyond.
