Lightweight and Rugged

The Fenix HL50 combines a compact and lightweight design with sturdy construction. Weighing in at 2 ounces and measuring just over 2.5 inches, it is compact enough to travel, hike or hunt. This headlamp is so light that it can be held in place with a single strap, no top strap required! Built with durable aluminum and stainless steel and coated with type III hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish, this light is ready for any abuse you can throw at it. An IPX-8 waterproof rating ensures that this light is ready for outdoor adventure in rain or shine.

Flexible Power Options

What the HL50 offers in dependability it matches in versatility. While primarily powered by a CR123A battery, the adjustable battery tube allows for the use of a AA cell. Having various options for power sources can be a lifesaver out in the wild! While the AA mode does have lower output, it can still put out a hefty 285 lumens. Using a CR123A, this headlamp can push a blinding 385 lumens in burst mode, sure to be enough to light your way through the dark.

Ready for the Great Outdoors

The HL50 headlamp is prepped for adventure with powerful output and straightforward features that make it ideal for outdoor use. Unique to this light is its temporary high-output burst mode, which can be accessed by holding down the power switch. This provides a burst of light to illuminate any particularly dark spots on demand. The headlamp can also be removed from the strap, and used as a regular flashlight, allowing for additional light positioning options not possible with other headlamps. With power and versatile design on its side, the HL50 is the perfect outdoor illumination tool.

Very Nice Headlamp
I like do a lot of night hiking, canyoneering, and even night time backcountry skiing. I've tried many different headlamps, but this one has impressed me most with its small size and good light output. There are brighter headlamps, but you really can't use more than 365 lumens at close range. I was also very pleased that it can accept a AA sized cell, since that is also what my GPS and avi beacon uses. Nice to keep weight down by only carrying one size of extra batteries.
ProsBoth AA and CR123 cell compatible, small and light weight yet with good light output.
ConsCaution, this headlamp can't handle the higher voltage of lithium ion cells! Not a big con, but something to be aware of.

Bright and versatile
This is a very nice headlamp. I've had several, used mostly for backpacking and general chores in the dark, and this one is the best so far. It's bright, has a nice pattern (many have too narrow a beam for my uses), and runs economically from a single NiMH AA cell. You can also use a CR123 cell for a little less weight and slightly more light, but with no ability to recharge -- rechargeable CR123 cells, even LiFePO4, aren't allowed. I bought one, used it for a while, then liked it enough to get a second one.

A joy to use
I've used this light for hiking, camping, and more mundane tasks closer to home. It beats the 3AAA headlamps I used to use all to pieces. The neutral white and even beam pattern are a noticeable step up - more pleasant and easier on the eyes. It's simultaneously brighter and longer running and also both lighter and more durable. I've not really used it with CR123s or used it as a handheld task light, but it's nice to know it has that flexibility. I do wish it had a moonlight mode. Half a lumen or so would be great for many close tasks in camp or in a tent.
ProsBeautiful NW beam Good performance Versatile
ConsNo moonlight mode

The best headlamp at BatteryJunction
I have purchase several headlamps from Battery Junction and this is by far the best. If you will notice it hardly ever goes on sale. That is how good it is. I have yet to see BJ discount this light.

Light and bright
Perfect for my use (around pianos). Can't ask any more from a perfect light for my situation. Definitely use the CR123 instead of the AA.

Great little headlight
This is my go to light for outdoor work at night. Last night I was outside dripping the faucets and covering some sensitive fruit trees before a freeze and it was plenty bright even on the medium setting. The light rotates easily in the frame to allow me to position it higher for walking around the property and lower for close work. I like the way the switch will "save" a setting and the way you can determine whether you want the off/on or intensity set simply by holding the button down for a longer or shorter amount of time - a great improvement on older lights that cycle through the settings every time you turn them on or off. Last but not least, the ability to choose between an AA or a CR123 battery gives me an option to use less expensive/easy to purchase alkaline cells for short jobs around the house and keep the more expensive, longer lasting CR123's for emergencies and long storage.

It's so light.
I wanted a light weight headlamp and this is the one! Light and bright. Easy to use and so light when you use it with a CR123A. There is a similar offering from Jetbeam but this one seemed like the better deal since it was on sale at 40% off!
Proslight weight!

Its light weight makes it a favorite
The HL50 has become one of my favorite 'go-to' headlamps when I want to grab some quick hands-free illumination. It really is well-built and rugged, and light enough that I'd take it hiking---it vastly outperforms the old, dim AAA Petzls I used to use. Weight-wise, I almost don't notice I'm wearing it when I have it on. I like the flexibility of using either CR123A or AA batteries, too---I find AA Eneloop cells last plenty long enough and are almost as bright as the CR123As. All in all, a winner.

Is there a lockout function on this light? Meaning, can you unscrew the tailcap a bit to prevent the light from turning on accidentally?

Unfortunately, there is not a lockout function on the HL50 headlamp. Press the button on the head to activate the HL50; press and hold the button on the head for 0.5 seconds to turn the light off.
