A headlamp and a flashlight have their own individual uses. However, circumstances can arise when you need the flashlight to be replaced with a headlamp so you can free up your hands. This is a challenge when you have a single-duty device. Trade your fancy flashlight or headlamp right away for the combo accessory which can let you switch from one device to another in a snap.
Called the Luci Beam, the 2-in-1 solar-powered headlamp and flashlight is created by Mpowerd. It comes in a water-resistant body so the combination device can be used in all possible situations and conditions without a fuss. The Luci Beam LED light delivers up to 300 lumens brightness, which should come in handy in so many use cases: whether you are searching for something in the store room or illuminating your pathway during a hike.
While the versatility to switch from handheld to headlamp is at the forefront of Luci Beam’s genius, it’s not the only wonder. The 2-in-1 headlamp and flashlight is solar-powered but can also be recharged via USB if there is no sun, so you are never left stranded in the middle of an adventure. Mpowerd offers the Luci Beam in a set that comprises a headlamp body, a headlamp mount, a flashlight body, a headband/wrist strap, and a micro-USB cable to charge on the go.
A secure headband for the headlamp and the wrist strap for the flashlight ensures the device can be held securely in place irrespective of the use case. Moreover, the 90-degree toggleable unit can be adjusted by the user to precisely point where the light is needed. To use the Luci Beam as a headlamp, the headlamp module magnetically snaps onto the headlamp mount and stays secure until you want to adjust the light focus downwards by up to 90 degrees. A versatile device for campers, backpackers, hikers, garage worksmiths and boaters, it is priced at $64.95. It is available on the Mpowerd website.
