The Olight H16 Wave is a lightweight rechargeable LED head torch that utilises two Cree XP-G3 cool white LEDs to give a maximum output of 500 lumens and can be operated with either the push button or set to wave operation.
It is powered using the included Olight 2000 mAh lithium polymer battery pack, which is recharged using the provided micro USB cable. Simply open the dust cover on the battery pack and insert the micro USB end of the cable and then plug the other end into a computer or suitable USB adaptor.
There are four indicator lights on the battery pack that will flash while charging is in progress and each one in turn will turn solid blue as the charging process progresses. Once all four lights are solid blue the battery pack will be fully charged. The LED indicators will also display battery status when not charging by pressing the small button on the battery pack.
The two LEDs turn on simultaneously with the right LED providing up close flood lighting thanks to the beaded TIR lens and the left LED providing long range spot lighting due to the smooth reflector. A combination of both focused and wide beam provides a balanced beam overall with the best of both worlds. Three brightness levels of low, mid and high are available.
The head torch is operated with a single push button switch that cycles through high, mid, low and off with each press, or it can be put into the hands free wave operation mode with the light turned on, by holding the button down until in blinks once. The light can then be turned on and off by waving your hand in front of the light from a distance of 2-6 inches. If the light is left off (stand by) while in wave mode it will fully power down after 1 hour.
The hinged bracket allows the H16 to be angled downwards within a 45° angle, allowing you to direct the light where you need it. Reflective strips on either side of the headband increase the visibility of the user, thus keeping you safer.
Due to the light weight design, this head torch is perfect for sport activities as you will hardly notice it is there.
