Maximum output in spot mode is 100 lumens and maximum output in flood mode is 25 lumens and both modes are infinitely adjustable (through ramping) down to 4 lumens. The white led modes include a strobe function as does the red led mode.
The output is current regulated for the first 25% of battery power for a more consistent output. It then falls out of regulation and gradually dims for a longer run time. This headlamp is also waterproof.
It has a lockout mode to keep it from turning on by accident while in your backpack as well as a battery condition indicator...green for 100%-75%, orange for 75%-25%, and red for less than 25%.
Things I would like to change...ugly beam profile, translucent housing that can cause a bit of glare, and the inability to directly choose spot beam vs flood beam.
Let me explain. In general the user interface is great. Once you read the instructions once you won't have to read them again. However to choose spot vs flood you must switch the light on and off. Those two functions toggle each time you do this so if you usually use the headlamp in spot mode every time you turn it back on it will be in flood mode. You will then have to turn it back off and then on again to get back to spot mode. This can be annoying.
The spot beam is functional but it's ugly as well. You can fix this by putting a piece of translucent tape over the optic creating a diffusion filter. You shouldn't have to do this however.
The glare I spoke of isn't bad and can be corrected with a piece of black electricians tape if it does bother you.Read more ›
Frankly I never got satisfied with the bulkiness/brightness/battery life compromise. The Zebralight was super light (100 lumens) and super powerful but battery life was ridiculous (1 hour in full power mode!). Princeton tech was not very bright (80 lumens) and battery life was not this long. Petzl Tikka had an excellent battery life but the light was too dim (40 lumens).
I also tried the bulky headlamps with three straps and the battery at the back of your head. The problem of those bulky headlamps is that they are... bulky. Bulky on your head, bulky in your backpack, bulky in your pocket. But as far as battery life and brightness is concerned they are perfect.
And then I got the Black Diamond Storm. It's is very bright (100 lumens and it seems brighter than the other 100 lumens headlamps I tested). Battery life is very decent (several hours in full power mode). I was afraid that with 3 AAA battery in front it would feel heavy but that's not the case at all. It fits and feels well and comfortable.
A tip: use energizer lithium AAA batteries: your headlamp will be even lighter, your battery life will be longer and the cost per hour of use will be lower!
The controls take some time to figure out, but once you get it down changing settings is a snap. My only complaint here is that once in a while I accidentally wind up on the red light setting and it takes me a while to get off it. You need just the right touch.
The light is comfortable, though slightly bulkier than some LED headlamps I've owned, but none of those threw 100 lumens the way the Storm does so I'm willing to put up with the extra bulk. Many reviews here provide details regarding the function and specs so I won't go into those, but instead I'll go right to why I bumped this down two stars after a year and a half of use.
First the housing developed a small crack next to the screw that secures the battery compartment. The light still works fine, but I'm sure this compromises the water resistance of the product. I've seen other reviews mention this crack so it appears to be an ongoing problem with this light.
Second, one of the two LEDs used for the low setting no longer works, so my low setting is now half its original power.
For functionality this light gets five stars, but it has durability issues. I liked this so much however that I bought another and threw my older one with the crack in the housing in my tackle box for night fishing.Read more ›
