Transcend 500 Rechargeable LED Head Torch
The Nebo Transcend 500 is a rechargeable head torch that can also be easily removed from the head band bracket to be used hands free.
The high power LED outputs a bright beam of 500 lumens on the turbo output, which is designed as a boost setting, allowing 40 seconds output at a time in order to prevent the temperature of the torch becoming too high and thus protecting the LED. The high output is a constant setting of 200 lumens that lasts for 3 hours, 30 minutes and two other brightness settings are also available.
It is powered by the included 16340 proprietary rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which is recharged inside the torch via the micro USB port that can be revealed by unscrewing one end of the torch. The supplied cable is plugged into the micro USB port and then connected to a standard USB port or USB adaptor. The charging indicator light will go red while charging is in progress and turn blue once charging is complete. Be sure to fully tighten the end after charging to protect the micro USB port for dust and water ingress.
Featuring four brightness levels, the torch is operated with the push button at the end of the light. Press the button once to activate high, a second time for mid, a third time for low and a fourth press will turn the light off. If the torch is in any mode for longer than 8 seconds then the next press will turn the light off rather than cycling through the modes. Turbo is activated by holding down the button while the torch is on and will last for 40 seconds before reverting to the previous mode.
The torch can also be instantly activated in the low setting by holding the button down with the light off, and the light will then cycle the modes backwards in the order of low, mid and high. This is a useful feature if you are in a situation where a low light level is required, such as when camping and not wanting to disturb others. Any time the torch changes brightness it will do so gradually which is easier on the eyes and also helps to preserve battery life.
The head strap attaches to a plastic bracket to hold the torch securely in place and allows the torch to be rotated within a 180° angle to direct the beam where you need it, and the torch can quickly be removed from the bracket if required.
A battery power indicator is built into the button and will illuminate while the torch is turned on. If the light is blue this indicates that the battery has over 25% power and once the light turns red this indicates that the battery has less than 25% power and needs to be charged soon.
Great for hands free use, the Transcend 500 also features a magnet on one end of the torch, perfect for work on the car, in a workshop, or attaching to any magnetic surface.
Please Note: The torch will be in demo mode upon arrival and will only stay on for around 8 seconds, please remove the battery for at least 5 seconds and then reinsert to disable the demo mode for normal use.
