Kathmandu Coupled 0.5W 2010

The Kathmandu Coupled 0.5W weighs 53g; 1x white high output 0.5Watt LED, 1x white LED for economy of power; Max power output 26 lumens; compact unit; uses 1 x AA battery; 18 hours battery life. But each LED has only one setting plus strobe; only 6.5 hours of white light on high output; head tilt mechanism not very secure; similar design as Ring Cybalite Duo but higher price.

The Kathmandu Coupled 0.5W’s head tilt lets this headtorch down, but it is tolerable for walkers as at least it has two power settings,
