Advances such as lightweight and safe LED headtorches by the likes of Chubb Fishing, a well-regarded name in the field of angling. Its SAT-A-LITE range of headtorches present a range of power and comfort options and this 250 model could be considered the Rolls Royce choice. It has a very wide and comfortable elasticated headband which sits as well on your head as it does around your neck when you’re not relying on it. It also has good looks with a smartly-bevelled casing and a bronze-effect insert into which the LEDs are set.
These LEDs are manufactured by Cree Inc, a leading light in the low-energy electronic lighting revolution that is sweeping the planet right now. Their output is stepped by three brightness settings, the highest of which will kick out up to 165 lumens with a beam distance of up to 73m. On the lowest setting, they will keep going on a full set of batteries for up to approximately150hrs. At the touch of an easily located button, you can switch from bright white light to a stealthier red light that won’t disturb fish at the water’s edge.
The Chub SAT-A-LITE Head Torch 250 weighs only 140g and uses three AAA batteries which you can choose to be rechargeable or standard AAA batteries.
