The feature-rich Black Diamond Spot headlamp utilizes QuadPower and DoublePower LED to provide 300 Lumens of illumination for backcountry pursuits. Convenient PowerTap technology delivers on-the-fly brightness adjustment in all types of weather.
The headlamp’s highest setting casts a bright beam over 262 feet! You can increase efficiency by adjusting the LED setting and dialing down brightness to achieve a maximum burn time of 180 hours. You can choose between proximity and distance modes and a strobe setting comes in handy in emergencies. A SinglePower red LED bulb can be used to preserve night vision. An integrated dimmer switch allows you to fine-tune brightness in whatever mode you are using. A Brightness Memory enables you to turn the headlamp on and off and return to the setting you were last using rather than having to always toggle through modes. A locking function allows you to prevent the light from accidentally turning on when stowed inside your pack.
The headlamp is powered by three AAA Alkaline batteries (included). Even with the batteries the Spot weighs a mere 3.2 ounces. An elastic headband adjusts to enhance comfort and ensure that the headlamp remains securely in place while in use. The hinged housing lets you angle the beam as needed for the situation. The housing has an IPX 8 waterproof rating that ensures performance even in wet conditions.
