    New Item! The NEXTORCH myStar Focus Headlamp
    The more they live life in a busy city, the more people long for leisure activities outdoors, and will sometimes go off to distant cities to find adventure. If you want to head for the outdoors, especially to enjoy at night, you need a reliable headlamp that frees up your hands for other things. The myStar headlamp, the winner of 2016 Red Dot Award, which is the internationally recognized label for excellent design, will be your first choice for heading off to the outdoors.

    Patented focusing technology, from floodlight to spotlight
    Different outdoors activities amount to different environments for using this headlamp. Your requirements for floodlighting won’t always be the same. Hiking, camping, mountain climbing all require floodlighting along the way, while search and rescue and trailblazing require a more focused lighting.



    The new myStar headlamp uses a patented Fresnel Lens Focusing Technology to achieve 360° focus, as needed in different environments. You avoid telescopic focusing that is awkward and liable to accidental bumping that change the focus. You can use this simple method of operation easily even in the most complex situations. Whether you need a clearer focus, or a broader focus, you get what you want.



    Beyond giving you a focused or broad beam, the brightness of the headlamp could limit what you can do. The myStar provides 550 lumens with the CREE XP-L V5 LED, so even for your persnickety need for brightness when spelunking, or your demand for a distant beam when you’re out running at night, this lamp delivers.

    The four available lighting modes include high, medium, dim light and S.O.S. flash code, all with unlimited 360° swivel adjustment, so myStar does what you need in different places and with different requirements, to give you the best the light for the job.

    Safe, Reliable and Long Lasting
    The myStar uses a battery similar to your cell phone battery, a polymer lithium ion battery, which is safer and functionally better than other kinds of batteries. It has a high capacity 3000mAh, similar to 6 ordinary AA batteries, but not even half their weight. This will last you up to 63 hours of continuous use. You get less weight, longer run time, and greater safety.




    The myStar is rechargeable in several ways. You can use the micro USB plug for recharging with a computer, a wall plug, an in-car charger, or a portable battery recharger block. In emergencies you can connect to an external power supply and use the lamp while the battery is recharging. The myStar has a recharging indicator, and a power level indicator to let you see at a glance how much power you have. You know where you stand.




    Cross-border design, input for greatest comfort

    In the spirit of the pursuit of the ultimate, NEXTORCH using its patented focusing technology, which can make the reflector cup much lighter without diminishing the effectiveness of the lamp.
    Choosing strengthened aluminum polymer plastic lightens the weight, and constitutes another breakthrough in the brightness of the headlamp. Finally, even with the battery, the weight of the headlamp is only 169g, compared to similarly performing headlamps this is more than 100g lighter. This not only reduces the burden on your head by 100g, but also to increases flexibility wearing the lamp 100 percent.



    In addition to weight, the design of the headlamp is another key factor affecting the wearing comfort of the headlamp. The myStar headband design inspiration comes from a senior ladies’ fashion underwear designer. The headband is designed both to avoid the traditional complicated triple headband design, and also to avoid the drawbacks of unsteady single headbands. The Y-shaped bifurcation and clever head and tail weight distribution to disperse the weight as much as possible, create a solution that is simple and practical. This is a successful example of cross-border design in the mobile lighting industry.



    At the same time, myStar battery container design is also very carefully deployed, using a human body engineering arc design, to fit the curvature of the human head better. Each part of the headlamp demonstrates care in design, all to improve your wearing comfort.

    Be seen, be safe

    Headlamps are not just for seeing what’s in front of you. Being seen is also very important, to reduce possible dangers from the rear. In order to more fully protect your safety, myStar added a red slow flashing warning at the rear of the lamp, a soft and uniform light, to ensure that you can be seen from the side and behind, and still not affecting the others’ vision at night; this friendly approach is the safer one.

    Very neat design especially the rear red light. When I lived in a subdivision I would go for walks in the evening and was always concerned with rear visibility, this would have been nice. Two questions though, what is the tint of the led, neutral or cool white? Second question, is there anyway to route the battery wire inside the headband to protect it? From my experience with having the wire hanging off the side it always gets caught on things and eventually breaks, if it was inside a protective sleeve on the headband it would keep it from getting caught.
    Reliability, NW and moonlight mode, the most important factors in a light

    Yes, this is a neat new product. Congratulations on the Red Star award.

    I'm curious and have a few questions:

    1. Is there a control to turn the rear, red flashing light ON/OFF?

    2. Is the battery easily replaceable by the user and locally available (or a proprietary Nextorch product), and at what price?

    3. Does the front lamp housing tilt up and down, or is it fixed straight ahead?

    4.
    One final question. What recharging options come with the light? Wall charger, USB cable, 12 volt car charger?

    It looks like a nice headlamp with many fine features. I'll look forward to seeing some reviews.
