How many lumens does a headlamp need to fit?

News Trade News2021-10-20 01:15:12

The most important thing to choosing a headlamp is to know the lumens (lm). The so-called lumens can be regarded as brightness, 50 lumens and 300 lumens; 300 lumens is higher; the higher the lumens number, the higher the brightness. If you want to explore lumen in-depth, it is the brightness of visible light emitted from a light source.


In news reports, it is often seen that someone goes out to climb a mountain without wearing a headlamp, and there is no way to go down the mountain. Similar news is emerging one after another. Many people have brought all equipment but did not bring the most important lighting equipment. Enough, as a result, the phone is out of power, or the brightness is weak, or even without waterproof function, it can't be used in heavy rain. For people who often climb mountains, headlamps are indispensable equipment. Although we don't want to walk the mountain in the dark, things are unpredictable. You may have delayed your trip for some reason. When the sun goes down, the sky gets darker and darker. The path in front of me is gradually becoming unclear, and taking a wrong step is vital to my life.


Besides, why choose headlamps instead of flashlights? The reason is simple. The headlamp can be worn on your head or hung on your chest, or even tied to your hands so that your hands can be free to use trekking poles or grab ropes, which will improve your reaction speed and safety.


So what is the difference between low lumens and high lumens?


50-100 lumens

Generally speaking, it is best to equip at least 50 lumens of headlamps for mountaineering. If you are in a group with a guide, you will use headlamps in situations like eating at night, going to the bathroom, or setting off in the early morning. For the road under your feet, you don't need to know the route ahead and the fixed-point activities; then, this bright headlamp is enough.

Applicable situation:

Participate in an outdoor club with a leader and guide

Picnic, dining



100-200 lumens


headlamps with more than 100 lumens can basically cope with many situations. Although the brightness is still limited, there will be no big problems as long as you go slowly. However, it is still not recommended as a team leader.

Applicable situation:



Picnic, dining


200 lumens or more


headlamps with more than 200 lumens or even more than 300 lumens can give you an extra layer of protection at night. Because of the high brightness, you can better grasp the surrounding and front environment, but relatively, the higher the price of the headlamp Higher.

Applicable situation:



Cross-country running

In addition to lumens, we believe that several other equally important considerations for headlamp selection are: illuminance (LUX, irradiation distance), water resistance, lighting time; some headlamps are mainly high lumens, but the irradiation distance may be Inferior to models with lower lumens, the reason lies in the way the light diverges, so if you want to see far, remember to choose products with higher illuminance. Waterproof capability is also a very important function. Because outdoor weather conditions are changeable, it is important to be able to use headlamps on rainy days. In addition, we also hope that the lighting time can be as long as possible, so it also depends on the lighting time of the product.
