The Olight Array is the updated version of the popular HS2. It is a lightweight aluminium LED head torch that is designed with runners in mind, but is equally good for camping, fishing, hiking and other general outdoor/indoor activities.
The head torch utilises two cool white LEDs to give a maximum output of 400 lumens on the mixed high beam. The right hand LED is a close range diffused soft light that can be used independently for low and high outputs, while the left hand LED is a focused spot light and can be used at the same time as the flood LED to provide a longer range mixed beam with high and low outputs.
A push button switch controls the four outputs which is built into the cable that runs along the head band and is also the connection point for the battery pack, so when not in use the battery pack can be unplugged to prevent accidental activation in transit. To ensure a good connection the battery pack cable needs to be firmly plugged into the switch section, and then a metal arm comes over to latch onto the other side to keep the cable securely connected when in use.
A single press will turn the light on, which is set to mixed beam on first use, and once on you hold the button down to switch between high and low mixed beam. To change to just the single flood LED, quickly double press the button with the light on and then the button can be held down to switch between high and low flood beam. A quick triple press will activate SOS and a single press will turn the light off when in any mode. The last used setting apart from SOS will be remember the next time the light is turned on.
A built-in 2000 mAh lithium polymer battery pack powers the torch, which sits on the back of the headband, and has now been updated to use the signature Olight magnetic charging method rather than a micro USB. Simply connect the MCC 1AL to the magnetic port on the back of the battery pack and plug the USB end into a computer or suitable adaptor with an output of at least 1 A. The light on the cable will go red to show charging is in progress and turn green once charging is complete, after approximately 3 hours.
Eight red LED indicator lights sit in a circle around the charging port on the battery pack, which act as a battery level indicator when the light is first turned on. Each LED represents an eighth of battery charge, so for example two lights would be 25% power, four lights would be 50% power and eight lights would be 100% power. All eight will light up at first in a clockwise motion and then bounce back round to show the remaining power. After 3 seconds it will stop displaying the battery level and the tail light will be activated, with groups of four LEDs blinking in a clockwise motion.
The tail light increases safety by providing extra visibility to others than may be behind you, which is especially useful if out running in the dark. The taillight only has one mode and cannot be turned off. The head lamp can be rotated within a 180° angle so that the light can be directed where you need it most.
A handy carry case is included for storage when not in use and helps prevent any damage in transit and it also has a smaller inner pocket to store any small accessories. The MCC 1AL charging cable is 1.2 m long, so it does have to be really close to the charging port to reach and it also has a cable tidy to keep it neat when not in use.
Note: When the light is turned on/off or changing modes, the brightness will change gradually to protect eyes from the stimulation caused by sudden brightness changes.
