Luma Active Is A Rechargeable, Super Bright And Lightweight Head Torch!

Wednesday, January 20, 2016

There is a new hands-free lighting system solution called, Luma Active, which is a super bright, USB rechargeable and ultra lightweight headlamp perfect for early morning runners, hikers, climbers and even on the ski slopes. The headlamp LED system and Luma Active headband weigh no more than 70 grams (weight of a small egg) and it's powered by a Li-Ion battery, which is rechargeable via micro USB to standard USB.

The Luma Active headlamp is operated via a single multi-functional button which powers on and off the unit and operates all three lighting modes of the Luma Active, including the red LED back lights on the back of the headband. The backlights are really a neat feature for additional safety when running on the side of the road.
The front light of the Luma Active consists of two LEDs which offer a combine maximum luminosity of 122 lumens, 3 hours of battery life and 30 meters range of visibility (Off-road Mode). The other two modes are the City Mode and the Country Mode. The City light mode has a range of 5 meters, 25 lumens of luminosity and battery life lasts around 15 hours. The Country light mode is 60 lumens and has a range of 8 meters and battery life lasts around 6 hours.
I really like how lightweight the Luma Active LED system is and how comfortable and breathable the headband feels around the head. A couple of other nice features of the Luma Active headtorch are the warning flashing alert when the battery is running low and the power saving mode to conserve battery life. To charge the Luma Active LED system, simply connect the unit to your laptop computer or USB wall charger. When charging, a red and blue LED will turn on. Full charge takes 3 hours and once the unit is fully charged the red LED will turn green.

The Verdict
Luma Active headband is a front and back head lighting solution made of quality fabrics (80% polyamide micro and 20% elastane), which make the headband elastic and soft to the skin. The Luma Active LED system can be easily removed to wash or transfer to another headband. You can also buy a Luma Active cap, as well as different color headbands and caps. Removal and installation of the LED system takes just a few seconds. the headband is comfortable to wear, easy to use and made in Austria. Check out Luma Active
