I love night orienteering and can assist you in getting a very cheap and powerful headlight...
Price list* 2015
BoruitLight - 60CHF or 500SEK
SolarStorm - 80CHF or 700SEK
*The listed price is for one headlamp package and it includes shipment cost and eventual custom fee :)
Note: Payment after completed delivery, product test and full perceived customer satisfaction.
I enjoy running in the dark, but not without a good light of course. If you do not have a perfect headlamp for running, biking or other activities in the dark, I recommend you to buy a headlamp with the powerful CREE/LED technology. With its superb Li-ion batteries the headlamps are lasting for enough time to last for training and competition purposes. However, in a local store near you a >1000 lumen headlamp may cost a fortune (~300CHF/2000SEK).
If you want to own a >1000 lumen headlamp but don't know how to get one, you can 1) just send me an E-mail (karl [at] tiselius.ch) 2) indicating what model you want to buy and how many and 3) add your desired delivery name and address, and I get the headlight package ordered to you asap. You'll then get a confirmation mail with more information and also my bank account for payment upon arrival of package. As the headlamp is mainly* sent to you from Asia, the delivery time may differ between 2-4 weeks (so order early!). When you get your package, you test the battery and light, and first when you feel satisfied you transfer the money. If the headlight is malfunctioning I also support with new order and/or money back in case you need to return the package within 30 days (if anything is found to be defective by manufacturer) to the supplier. So far I have helped a lot of satisfied friends and other people.
*in some cases I might have some headlamp packages at home in Switzerland
Headlamps I can recommend and order for you:
All lummen (lm) values (below) are my own qualified estimation. I would like to test real values (may be higher or lower, but I do not have access to the equipment needed)
BoruitLight >1000 lm = strong light + 2 (a bit lighter) lights, ½-sized battery pack on the back of a nice head solution (two 18650-batteries will be delivered to you too - separately or included in the package). A good training lamp.
SolarStorm >2000 lm = super strong 3x light, light and really good head solution, (long) cable connected battery pack. A good competition lamp.
All packages includes:
XM-L "T6" and/or "U2" based light (CREE-LED, waterproof design, aluminum alloy casing and reflector, four switch mode: strong brightness/half brightness/low brightness/flashing), headstrap (adjustable), rechargeable Li-ion battery pack*, charger with colored diode indicator (charging/fully charged) and EU-adapter.
*BoruitLight model battery packs: 3.7V, 2 x 5000mAh UltraFire BRC 18650 battery)
SolarStorm battery pack: 8.4V, 4 x 18650 battery pack
Photo 1. BoruitLight uses 2 extra CREE lights on the sides to increase the light strength (lummen). 2 x 5000mAh batteries.
