I received this light from BangGood.com for the review. Here’s the purchase link https://goo.gl/tCrFrp
The Fenix HL26R is a small (65x44x37 mm) plastic headlamp, with integrated headband mount and incorporated battery rechargeable (1600mAh Li-polymer battery) with micro USB port, and 2 beams: one throwy (XP-G2) and one flood (2 Nichia emitters).
A comparison between the HL26R and the NU30CRI
On the inside of the headband there’s a line of silicon like glue, that helps the grip.
Beamshots: half meter from the wall
Output and runtime
The light is well made and finished.
I like the headband, and that the light has an integrated mount with several inclination positions available.
The battery indicator is easy to read and clear.
The throw beam is fine, but I'd like a higher output for the max continuously running high mode.
The flood beam has a good geometry, but not great tint and only 2 levels. Also, output intensity is a bit on the low side.
I like the FLAT regulation on all levels.
The HL26R is a cheap, simple but versatile headlamp. I’d like to see it come with a better output on the flood beam, level spacing and a NW tint.
