The Ledlenser H8R offers a maximum output of 600 lumens white light from a single Xtreme LED and also has a red light on the back of the head torch for increased viability.

There are three lighting modes available giving the user a choice of how the brightness settings are cycled through. Mode 1 cycles through in the order of high, mid, low and off with each press. Mode 2 cycles through the settings in the opposite direction of low, mid, high and off. Mode 3 cycles between high and low, and unlike mode 1 & 2 which are energy saving (brightness gradually lowers for longer run-time), this mode offers constant current output to maintain a higher brightness for a shorter run-time.

Switching between modes is simple and is done by holding down the button while the torch is off. While holding the button the light will blink once to indicate mode 1 after 10 seconds, blink twice to indicate mode 2 after 13 seconds and blink 3 times to indicate mode 3 after 16 seconds.

The advanced focus system allows you to focus the light from spot to flood by twisting the bezel on the head of the torch. On the highest setting when focused into a spot, with a full charge, the H8R can throw the beam up to 150 metres range.

The H8R also features a lock out mode to prevent accidental activation when not in use and can be activated the same way as changing modes, except you hold the button for 16 seconds until the light blinks three times. To come out of lock out mode, hold the button for 5 seconds until the light blinks once.

Powered by an 18650 lithium-ion battery the H8R has a run-time of 10 hours on the highest setting (down to 1 lumen) from a full charge. When the battery level drops to 10% or below, the built-in power indicator will notify you with three blinks of the white light.

The battery goes in a separate battery compartment that sits on the back on the headband, which helps to evenly distribute weight. The battery is also charged inside the battery holder via the micro USB port which is revealed by lifting the dust cover. Insert the included charging cable into the micro USB port and the other end into a computer or compatible USB adaptor (not included). A red light will come on to show charging is in progress and will go green once charging is complete.

A great head torch for everyday use and activities such as fishing, camping and hiking.

I'm a self confessed Ledlenser fan with several torches for various purposes so this is not exactly an unbiased review. However, it does mean I can compare to other LedLenser stuff including my old H7R. So the H8 is a lot brighter with a longer charge. I go on long woodland night dog walks so both are important. I use the head torch to supplement whatever hand torch I have when I need to be hands free (dog).So without a doubt this torch has plenty of output. Used mostly on the widest beam it is pretty much a night sun and turns the immediate area into daylight on its highest setting. there are times when I will use it on lowest setting just to light up where my feet are going when on rough terrain while using a hand torch to light the way ahead. It is perfect for that too. The battery holder is the biggest difference to the H7R. It has a bigger battery yet still sits more comfortably on my head. The "wheel" to adjust power setting of the H7 has been dispensed with to allow a more compact cylindrical battery compartment and in my view its a good trade off. I had only really ever used the H7 on low or high and very rarely anywhere in between so the wheel was making the battery holder bulky with little benefit. Gone too is the bulky light on the back, replaced with a far more subtle red dot that is a charge indicator and also gets you seen if you are using it for night runs. personally, I'd prefer the ability to switch that little light off but again its a reasonable trade off for compactness. The other thing I like about this is that it feels a little more solid that the H7. the battery holder on the H7R always felt like a weak point; almost flimsy but this one on the H8R is better in my view. It means that the power setting is a simple cycle through the usual front torch mounted button from either H M L or L M H. Medium is well bright enough for most dog walking stuff but the comfort of having 600 lumens to hand (or head) when you need it is fantastic. I registered this one with Lenser so have a full 7 year warranty so have no worries about it really. So if you need a very bright head torch that is well made and will last for many hours on full power in a charge, this one is a perfect fit. As I've said, I'm a Lenser fan so I'm biased but this is a great bit of kit. There are lots of fakes out there so I always choose Torch Direct to buy from. You know what you are getting. Service is quick and if there is a problem (only once) they deal with it quick sharp. It would be nice if they reinstated their loyalty point scheme though!!!

Another excellent head torch from Led Lenser. Lightweight, comfortable and ideal for those nightly runs along unlit pavements etc. The new battery holder is compact and not at all bulky like some other head torches I've had.
