    Build Thread - Custom Running Headlamp

    Holding up really well. Thoroughly used it since I made it, and my friends who also bought one from me probably uses theirs more that I do mine I haven't received any complaints or comebacks. One is strapped to his MTB permanently. Been toying with the idea of building another headlamp...

    Build Thread - Custom Running Headlamp

    Sorry it's been a while since I logged onto CPF. You're welcome to make one for yourself. The ZAR/US$ exchange rate doesn't make it viable for me to sell them. Also the chap at the machine shop I used no longer works there so I'll have to track down another place who's willing. I'll share the...

    Build Thread - Custom Running Headlamp

    Difference in price/unit between 5&10 was so little that it didn’t warrant the need to machine more. Machine costs for making just one housing =~$100, 5=~$35 and 10=~$30, so opted for the 5. The bulk of the initial costs was in making the housing as I couldn’t machine it myself. Also didn’t want...

    Weight of the headlamp unit alone is about 50grams. The battery depends on what setup you use, as do runtime, as do lumens based on which current and UI the Lflex is set to. Currently set at 3500mah (Leds in parallel) and in UIBQ and multimode, so light output as follows: L1: ~27 Lumen L2...

    Thanks Derek. I was pleasantly surprised how well everything turned out. What started as a simple project for my own use quickly snowballed and turned into a decent headlamp. Yup, definitely holding on to the logo! 🙂

    Only 1 left, but the face plate is slightly “stained” so I thought I’d keep it too “play” with different components/setups etc.

    Ok, so battery pack: I 3D printed a small casing for a single 21700 cell and hard wired it. I didn’t care much for looks as the battery is purely functional for me. Simply duct taped it to make it sweatproof. There’s not much more to it really. https://flic.kr/p/2fZHGkv

    Hi All, Thought I'd share my headlamp after a recent comment to a Thread. I'll make it a quick read. :) Some background: I run quite a few Ultra trail marathons amongst all my other adventures so I'm constantly on the search for better gear etc. I basically started my crusade because I felt...

    All-night run-time for Ultramarathons

    Made a single cell 21700 battery pack for this one for my own use. I just kept it in my hydration pack as high up in the pack as possible to give me enough slack in the cable so I can move my head freely without tugging on it.

    Thanks. I’ll start a thread for it and share all the details there, then I don’t hi-jack El Capitan’s thread. 🙂

    All-night run-time for Ultramarathons

    I use an Olight HS2 with a custom made 2x18650 (parallel) battery pack. And I carry a emergency headlamp like a Petzl E+Lite (I would use a Bindi now). Have lately moved to a custom made headlamp with a similar setup that's just epic. Can check it out here...

    Review: Fenix HL12R

    Sorry, completely forgot...almost. Switching off and on again after the 2hour step down seems to reset it, so you'll be back to the full ~130lumens. Assuming the battery will last the next full 2hours.

    Review: Fenix HL12R

    Thanks! I just lend this one out to a fellow runner doing her first Ultra in 4 weeks time. Perfect for that first 2 hours of the start of the race. And by the looks of things I'm going to have a hard time getting it back.

    Disclaimer: The Fenix HL12R was provided for review free of charge from Fenix HQ. Quick mention for those who haven’t read any of my reviews yet; I’m a runner, mostly, but I basically do anything that involves me and the outdoors. I’m the most critical and picky about a headlamp when I’m...
