The Nebo Transcend 1000 is a rechargeable head torch that can also be easily removed from the head band bracket to be used hands free.
The high power LED outputs an intensely bright beam of 1000 lumens on the turbo output, which is designed as a boost setting, allowing 40 seconds output at a time in order to prevent the temperature of the torch becoming too high and thus protecting the LED. The high output is a constant setting of 450 lumens that lasts for 4 hours and two other brightness settings are available as well as strobe.
It is powered by the included proprietary rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which is recharged inside the torch using the included micro USB port which is revealed by unscrewing the end of the torch where the button is, which is opposite to the battery compartment access. The supplied cable is plugged into the micro USB port and then connected to a standard USB port or USB adaptor. The charging indicator light will go red while charging is in progress and turn blue once charging is complete after approximately 2 hours. Be sure to fully tighten the end after charging to protect the micro USB port for dust and water ingress.
Featuring four brightness levels and Strobe, the torch is turned operated with the push button at the end of the light. Press the button once to activate high, a second time for mid, a third time for low and a fourth press will turn the light off. If the torch is in any mode for longer than 8 seconds then the next press will turn the light off rather than cycling through the modes. High, mid and low have a memory recall feature, so the light will turn back on in the last used brightness output.
The torch can also be instantly activated in the low setting by holding the button down with the light off, and the light will then cycle the modes backwards in the order of low, mid and high. This is a useful feature if you are in a situation where a low light level is required, such as when camping and not wanting to disturb others.
Turbo is activated by holding down the button while the torch is on and will last for 40 seconds before reverting to the previous mode, whilst a quick double click at any time will access strobe. Any time the torch changes brightness it will do so gradually which is easier on the eyes and also helps to preserve battery life.
The head strap attaches to a plastic bracket to hold the torch securely in place and allows the torch to be rotated within a 180° angle to direct the beam where you need it, and the torch can quickly be removed from the bracket if required.
A battery power indicator is built into the button and will illuminate while the torch is turned on. If the light is blue this indicates that the battery has over 25% power and once the light turns red this indicates that the battery has less than 25% power and needs to be charged soon.
Great for hands free use, the Transcend also features a magnet on one end of the torch, perfect for work on the car, in a workshop, or attaching to any magnetic surface.
