Led Lenser Head Torch for Camping & Hiking 2020
Ledlenser is a globally renowned maker of headlamps for camping and hiking purposes. Campers and hikers regard headlamps as the equipment they simply can't do without, particularly when it comes to maintaining safety when hiking in the dark. Headlamps help hikers stay on the right path, illuminate difficult stretches next to impossible to navigate in the dark, and spot wild animals and steer clear of them when hiking through forests.
Read on to know about the various Ledlenser headlamps that are available on Skuxs along with their wide array of features. But before we start reviewing the different Ledlenser headlamps we have on offer, let’s go through all the reasons why you should invest in a headlamp if you’re an avid camper and/or hiker.
Keep Your Hands Free: The headlamp vs. flashlight debate is a seemingly never-ending one. However, headlamps' greatest advantages are that when you use them, your hands stay completely free, which means that you can use them to do something else. For example, imagine how difficult it would be to pitch a tent in the dark with one of your hands holding a flashlight. When you wear a headlamp, you can use both your hands to set up your tent, making the process much smoother and more efficient.
- Light Up The Way: Hiking in the dark can be dangerous. The potential threats include a difficult trail and wild animal attacks. However, armed with a Ledlenser headlamp, you can light up the direction you turn your head towards, which will allow you to identify obstacles in your way and also scare off wild animals. Wearing a headlamp will also allow you to hike confidently, which is a problem with conventional flashlights. When one of your hands is busy operating a flashlight, your concentration is bound to get adversely affected, increasing your chances of losing your balance on those tricky trails.
- Rechargeable: While not all Ledlenser headlamps are rechargeable, many of them are. Going for your camping and/or hiking trips with these headlamps can make your experience convenient, as you can recharge them whenever you please. Unlike non-rechargeable headlamps, you don’t need to replace the batteries. Just plug them into a portable power source and get them back up to full power. Rechargeable headlamps come in especially handy when you go for multi-day hikes, as you don’t need to carry extra battery sets.

Four AAA batteries are required to run the headlamp, and its runtime range is 5 – 30 hours, depending on the chosen output setting.
