The brand new CORE Series is here, and the H15R CORE is one of the variations that replaces the hugely popular H14R.2. An updated 10 seconds boost output now offers a maximum of 2500 lumens, while the highest constant output is 1000 lumens and the lowest constant output is 20 lumens.
The light is operated with the power button on the side of the head torch by pressing it once to turn the light on, and the output can then be altered between the highest and lowest brightness levels using the stepless dimming wheel switch that gradually increases the brightness when twisted forwards and decreases the brightness when twisted backwards. The boost output can be activated by double pressing the button and will illuminate for 10 seconds before returning to the previous setting.
This allows you to select the perfect light brightness for the task at hand, and the last used output will be remembered when the light is turned back on.
A larger capacity 4800 mAh lithium-ion battery pack provides excellent run-times, with up to 5 hours in the highest constant output. When the battery level drops to 25% or below, the built-in power indicator will notify you with three blinks of the white light and the light will enter the 20 lumen back up mode and run for a further 1 hour to ensure you are not left in the dark and give you chance to recharge the battery.
The battery goes in a separate battery pack that sits on the back on the headband, which helps to evenly distribute weight. The battery comes installed, however to remove or change it, the battery pack can be slid off the headband and the corner of the headband connector is inserted in the small slit on the end of the battery pack so that it can be twisted to the unlocked position. Then connect the wire from the battery pack to the wire from the head lamp to provide power.
The battery can be charged inside the battery pack via the magnetic charging point located on the end. Connect the magnetic end of the included cable to the charging point, and the standard USB at the other end plugs into a suitable USB port or adaptor. The four LED battery indicators will gradually increases until all four are solid green to show charging is complete after approximately 5 hours, 30 minutes for a full charge.
The LED indicators will also light up when the torch is turned on to show the remaining battery power, with four indicating 100%, three indicating 75%, two indicating 50%, one indicating 25% and one flashing indicating below 25%.
An advanced focus system allows you to smoothly transition the light from spot to flood by twisting the bezel on the head of the torch and the swivel mechanism of the head lamp provides stepless adjustment of the beam position within a 130° angle so that it can be exactly where you need it.
There is also a lock out mode to prevent accidental activation when not in use, which can be activated by holding the button for 5 seconds until the light blinks twice. To come out of lock out mode, hold the button for 8 seconds until the light blinks twice.
The H15R CORE has improved ingress protection thanks to the flex sealing technology, now offering a rating of IP67 making it fully resistant to solids and fully waterproof when submerged in water up to a depth of 1 metre for 30 minutes, which makes it perfect for everyday use and outdoor activities such as fishing, camping and hiking.
