Q. How much does the battery and headset weight?
A. Each weighs under 250g.
Q. Is there a warning when the battery is low?
A. Yes. The light will flash 3 times when the battery is low. It will also automatically switch to low power mode.
Q. What happens when the battery is very low. Does the light just go out?
A. No. When the battery reaches critical the light goes into stamina mode. This will provide a low level of light for several days.
Q. Is there a way of checking the power level of the battery?
A. Press and hold the power button for more than 3 seconds in any mode. This will make the light flash. The number of flashes represents the level of charge. 5 flashes full, 1 flash nearly empty.
Q. Can I really return the headset for a firmware upgrade?
A. Yes. The power settings are controlled by an ATtiny chip. This can be reprogrammed to give different settings or remove the battery test function. You can return your headset for custom settings like a very low 10lm glow or just a high and low mode. If the LEDs are upgraded the firmware can be adjusted to give the same light output and longer run times.
Q. Is it waterproof?
A. The headset is tested to IP67. This is immersion in up to 1m of water for 30 mins. All the components are rated to IP68 (immersion to 5m) we just have not been able to test it yet.
Q. What type of LEDs does the headset have?
A. There are 2 Cree XP-L LEDs one flood one spot.
Q. Is it really made in the UK?
A. Yes. The headset, lamp bracket and battery box are made in Devon. The circuit board is designed in Somerset and manufactured in Newbury. All other parts are sourced from UK suppliers.
Q. Is there a car charger available?
A. Currently not. A basic 12v inverter should do the job though.
