The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Sprinter 500 Headlamp from Black Diamond is a very light headlamp. Including the battery, it weighs only 123 grams. The headlamp can be powered by the included BD 1800 rechargeable lithium-ion battery or by 3 AAA batteries.
This lamp emits 500 lumens at its maximum level, illuminating at 50 meters for 3 hours. It has a maximum run time of 100 hours at 6 meters with a power of 6 lumens. This light features a universal beam pattern that minimizes hot spots and eliminates difficult transitions during your activity.
PowerTap technology allows for immediate transitions between brightness modes. Simply tap the "on/off" button for fine tuning of brightness adjustment.
The Sprinter 500 is equipped with a lightweight, perforated elastic headband that offers good breathability and is easy to adjust. The headband is reflective; a red flashing light on the back of the headband allows you to be visible during your night activity (with on/off button).
