Thread: Looking for the brightest 18650 90 to 120 deg flood headlamp. Need help

    Please help.
    which zebra lamp is the brightest and the most floody.

    Looking for the brightest 18650 with a beam of 90 deg or more flood headlamp. Any recommendations?

    I'm used to the Olight H2R (I had 3 of them and only have 1 left that flickers), I just got this Perun 2 which I'm quite disappointed with.

    I used the H2R on medium to high most of the day underground. Any alternatives to this lamp, I do not want anything under 90 degrees, I do not want a hot spot.

    I'm seriously desperate for a new light, this perun 2 is to heavy, to spotty and flickers (proxy switch) to much to continue using every single day for 8 hours underground.

    I compared the milwaukee hard hat headlamp to the parun 2 and h2r, its just not bright enough, I'm used to the h2r's high and medium modes.

    I don't mind changing batteries if the light can't sustain high mode for long enough.

    The H604d is a 'mule' 180* wall of light. I upgraded to it because the AA zebras aren't bright enough in a garage, with the door open in daylight, trying to light up the bottom of an auto engine. It's wonderful for that use.

    It isn't bright enough for nighttime outdoor stuff. You'll need a 90* beam for that.

    I think youíre probably looking for the H600F MKIV. Itís pretty similar to the H2r in output and flood profile. I have both as well as the Perun 2. I use the Zebralight for hunting/ camping where it might get soaked in a jacket pocket. I donít trust the magnetic charging ports on the Olights for that. I donít think the UI on the Zebralight is as good as the Olightís but it has more modes so you can adjust your runtime/output needs pretty well.

    I'm not sure if you've already purchased a headlamp or not yet, but here are a few options.
    It uses a 21700 battery, but has 4,000 lumens!

    Another one that uses a 21700.

    Here's the same hadlamp, but it's been modified and made into a HCRI headlamp.

    Some other headlamps to consider that use 18650 batteries.

    Hopefully one of those will fit your needs just right.

    Nitecore has a number of headlamps that can run off of an external battery pack. I might check their manufacturer website for models, and don't just limit yourself to the headlamp section because some of their head/helmet lamps are in other categories.

    Are you sure you want food only? Sounds like you might prefer a combination beam.

    Here's one of the newer Nitecore lamps which let's you adjust the flood and spot LEDs' brightness for tailoring the beam to your preference: https://flashlight.nitecore.com/product/hu60
