Alexander Jin says:

what’s the run time at its highest setting…excluding burst mode?

Nik Gallardo says:

It looks like you were comparing the black diamond to the fenix. You said this 3 led headlamp.. Though you do realize not all three lights ever engage together.. Right? Its two small led’s for flood light and one bigger led for beam. I have the black diamond spot and i think its great.

rave master says:

its expensive asf its just a led in a alloy case with inverter circuit that could powered by single aa battery humans are greed any small company can make that

Nice review, thanks. I’m looking to replace my faithful, but lost, TK11. My current headlamp is an LED Lenser H7, but had problems with it (latest [replacement] one has a missing spring where the batteries fit). Contrasting the HL50, the H7 dislikes NiMh AAA and prefers non-rechargeable. I think I’d like to switch to rechargeable AA over my TK11’s 18650. I rarely used the highest 220-lumens setting (mid-level sufficient) and obv AA availability is much better–I mainly bikepack ultralight, so prefer the idea of using the HL50 as a front bike light, as well as a headtorch. Cheers

I’m sold, this will be my next flashlight, I’ve always loved fenix flashlights.  I currently have a plastic sucky headlamp light, it takes 3 AAA batteries and kills the pretty quick, I’m getting this light ASAP….  thanks for the review..

Thank you for the video. Clear, concise, and you hit all my points the selling page didn’t cover. I wish more videos were like this.

I owned this headlamp but this metal part that sticks to head is painful. Its heavier than HL23 and it pains. No im skipping to HL23.

Great review, man. Nice and calm, good command of the language. Thanks.

John Sterling says:

I just got the Fenix HL55. It’s very bright. Of course I looked at the HL50 but I wanted to use the more powerful 18650 battery. While it’s true that these new headlamps greatly outshine the old models, I should have bought a headlamp years ago for use inside for stuff like cleaning or doing projects.

Does the metal on metal clamp scrape away the anodized coating on the light? Thumbs up the video.

Mr E says:

Good video. Running times?

For me the new high end flashlights are nice toys and tools at the same time.But the ultimate light is the head lamp and it is just a tool.Nothing beats the ease of having your both hands free and having light in the direction you turn your head to.Even a dimmer head lamp beats a high power torch when you try to install snow chains on a semi in the middle of a cold night.
