See quick info below on five of the best lights from our testing, then scroll deeper for longer reviews of these and other top-performing models, plus buying advice. Longer battery life typically comes at a cost: weight. We research the market, survey user reviews, speak with product managers and designers, and rely on our own experience on roads and trails long after the sun has set (or before it comes up). The EyeQue app starts you with a comprehensive video tutorial, then runs you through a practice test — all to make the experience as novice-friendly as possible. Running on an open road under a full moon is a completely different experience than running singletrack trails beneath heavy tree cover-and both require different lighting. The Moon has now completed half of its revolution around Earth. The Juno probe, for instance, departed Earth in 2011 and only entered Jupiter’s orbit around five years later. You can tell that by the fresh earth heaped upon their resting place. A vision expansion has taken place within and now boundary of self is stretched out beyond the skin boundary to encompass the entire creation. Now is the time to take action and push forward.

Most models gradually dimmed over time, though a few fell off quickly-Black Diamond and BioLite say it’s an industry standard to drop intensity as your eyes adjust to the darkness so they can extend run time. In addition to evaluating these headlamps for their adjustability and beam types, we tested the lights’ brightness over time to determine how long each shines at full power. Some headlamps (see the Silva Trail Runner Free H. Black Diamond Sprinter 500 below) work with either AAA batteries or a rechargeable battery pack. It’s powered by a small rechargeable battery mounted on the back of your head that can be swapped out for three AAA batteries in a pinch, boosting its versatility. Some models cram the batteries into the lamp on your forehead, while others with exceptionally long burn times will separate the two components and place the power pack on the strap at the back of your head. This headlamp has a neat feature: It can be run off either three AAA batteries or a rechargeable “Core” battery pack that comes with the lamp-and you don’t need any special converters.

We can do better. Lamps with higher lumens-300 and up-are better for trails and starless nights. To do so, we turned each lamp on at its maximum setting and pointed it at a digital luxmeter on the ground roughly two strides away-about as far as you’d look ahead on technical trails. Even then, it’s not the brightest light around-rated at 500 lumens, it doesn’t cast a beam very far, but those qualities make it good for navigating technical trails in the dark. You’ll save money by getting a light with a single lamp that puts out a consistent beam. You’ll find the spotlight is great for casting the light farther down the road or brightly illuminating the trail directly in front of you. For such lamps, the max lumens and battery life are a bit misleading, since you’ll never be able to keep the lamp at 100 percent for more than a few minutes. What are you waiting for?

But the downside to rechargeables is that you could find the battery dead when you’re headed out the door, when you don’t have an hour or two to spare waiting for it to power up. This product comes with a switch button on the power cord to put it on and off. Its 900 lumens put it easily into “running with headlights” territory, and to be honest, under most conditions, it’s complete overkill. In general, look for a headlamp that’s capable of cranking out at least 200 lumens on its high setting. Lumens is a measure of the light’s intensity-brightness. As a night light, this moon lamp has 3 relaxing lights- warm light, white light and orange light. Some lamps can automatically adapt to the ambient light around you-handy if, say, you peek at your watch and don’t want to be blinded by the reflection (the light dims a bit).
