The Unilite HL-1R rechargeable head torch offers a maximum output of 125 lumens from its high power Cree white LED. As well as the white LED, the HL-1R features two 3 mm red LEDs that provide red light to preserve night vision and a flashing red light to attract attention.

Handy head torch offers high visibility for electricians

Powered by a built-in 520 mAh Lithium polymer rechargeable battery, the HL-1R has a run-time of two hours in high mode. Recharging the unit is easy; simply insert the micro USB cable into the side of the head torch and the other end into a USB port or a USB mains/car adaptor.

A red LED will illuminate to show charging is in progress and will turn green once charging is complete. The easy pushbutton micro switch cycles through the white settings with each press in the order of high, mid and low. To change to red settings simply press and hold the button with the light on and cycle through red, red flash and red SOS with each press. If left in any setting for longer than three seconds the next press will turn the light off. The last colour setting is remembered, so if you leave it in red mode, you will not ruin your night vision with the white light if you switch it on intending to use red lighting.

A hinged bracket allows the HL-1R to be adjusted downwards within a 45° angle so you can direct the light source where it is needed most. The high visibility technology means you will always be seen, which is useful when working in an industrial environment. And the fully adjustable non-slip silicone lined headband helps keep the head torch secure on your head or on a hardhat.

The handy storage pouch is great for when your head torch is not in use as it keeps everything together and protects it from getting scratched. Ideal for electrical contractors, the Unilite HL-1R is available through Garry Lumpe Imports.
