By pressing the button on front of your headlamp in quick succession cycles through three option. Default setting was set bright to dull.
Mode 1: 600 lumens
Mode 2: 250 lumens
Mode 3: 10 lumens
In the box comes the headlamp, a rechargeable battery, a chest strap, an extension cable for those that don’t want to wear on their head, a charging USB cable and instructions.
There are two modes:
- Energy Saving Mode that delivers a longer run time
- Constant Current Mode that optimizes for lumen output (brightness) but at the expense of run time.
Pressing the button on the front of the torch in quick succession cycles through these three options. I had set on bright to dull but you can switch modes, and have it cycle through from dull to bright. It seems there is little difference between 1 and 2 in terms of brightness and then 3 is dull. However, according to the manual Mode 1 is 600 lumens, mode 2 = 250 lumens and then mode 3 = 10 lumens.
There is a Patented Advanced focusing optics that give the ability to zoom the light for a spot beam (for distance illumination) or a flood beam (for near illumination). To control this, you turn the dial on the front of the headlamp.
The NEO10R has the battery placed vertically. There was no slipping and I did not feel the need to use the battery extension cable to remove it from my head. There is a small red light (not blinking) integrated on to the back of the battery which I liked.
I have not tested it fully yet in one go. If it’s on full power (600 lumens) it is reported to last 10hrs, on medium power 15hours and on the lowest power 120hours. NEO10R was more comfortable with the battery positioned vertically. It’s a close-run thing! Warranty 7 years.
My spare NEO4. It weighs 100g, takes 3 AAA batteries. It has two energy modes (energy saving (6hrs on the higher power 240 lumens) and constant (3hrs on the higher power 150 lumens).
