Olight H1 LED Headlamp
The newest edition to Olight's already exceptional line of headlamps, the H1 LED Headlamp is a potent combination of power and versatility. Powered by either a single CR123A (included) or a rechargeable 16340 battery, this powerful light is capable of generating up to 500 Lumens of evenly-dispersed illumination that can throw further than 200 feet away. In addition to its maximum output, the light features 4 dimmer outputs ranging from 180 Lumens down to just 2 Lumens to cover a wide range of lighting needs, and even comes with an S.O.S. Mode for emergency situations. In order to prevent overheating, the light gradually dims after 3 minutes in Turbo Mode to its next highest output to protect both the light and its battery. The H1 is available with two different variants of CREE XM-L2 LEDs; a Cool White version which produces cleaner, more vivid light, or a Neutral White version which appears much more similar to natural light and is less strenuous on the eyes.
The H1 is designed to not only be easy to use, but adaptable to whatever hands-free lighting needs you may have. The light is operated using a simple pushbutton switch located on the side of its durable hard-anodized aluminum body. While it is primarily designed for use with its comfortable nylon headband, the compact light also comes with a removable pocket clip so it can be attached to your pocket, belt, or even your backpack strap for additional hands-free lighting options. The light even comes with a magnetic tailcap that allows it to be mounted on a variety of metal surfaces, providing area lighting when needed. Incredibly bright and remarkably versatile, the H1 is the perfect headlamp for any user.

The H1 Nova produces a nice wide beam and its modes cover many needs (brief Turbo of 500 Lumens with reasonable throw of over 60m, then modes of 180, 60, 15, and 2 Lumens). Run time is good as expected with 16340's or CR123A's. Build quality is excellent as is the headband. Button is a bit below the top of the light, that and the headlamp role reduce risk of accidental activation; the tail cap can be unscrewed for lock-out as well when you choose to use this light as a utility work light or even an EDC. The tail cap also has a strong magnet, making the H1 Nova a handy helper when working on equipment or under the sink, or sorting out breaker issues in a dimly lit basement. Time will only tell how well the headband will stand up to repeated insertion/removals of the H1 from its silicone rubber holder with its two narrow holder bands. I'd prefer a single wider holder like Nitecore's HC30 headlamp headband. While the H1 Nova headband fits me, it seems not to have too much adjustment range. Included in the case is a snap-on pocket clip, user guide, product flyer, the headband, and the H1 Nova. The H1 Nova does not allow for a split ring or lanyard for those who prefer such things in an EDC light; clearly not so important for aits role as a headlamp.
I like the User Interface design. A long click (over a second) results in Moonlight - that safe way to enter the 2 Lumen level is a good idea, and at that level looking about in a tent or taking a late night walk helps preserve night vision. From off, a quick double click brings up Turbo brightness, while a single short click brings up the last mode from which it was turned off and memorized from the 15/60/180 Lumen levels. In keeping with the role of an outdoors headlamp, the H1 Nova also provides an SOS mode rather than a Strobe mode (triple click from off). The UI design also provides for an electronic lock out and the driver has a low standby current drain, so long standby life is promised; i still prefer using giving the tail cap a short twist instead. Finally, the driver design provides for "soft" on/off, a nice touch and does reduce shock to your eyes.
I do prefer the black holder that comes with the rechargeable version, so I just swapped headbands with my wife's - the two headbands are fully compatible. Would be nice to see a factory option on this.
I'm about to buy another one to leave in my cars glove box.
