Smaller and lighter than the Quad or Remix headlamps, the Byte weighs in at a mere 64 grams but packs the punch of a 50 lumen Maxbright white LED. When the task requires maintaining your night vision, a red Ultrabright LED provides faster eye adaptation for reading of charts or locating positions of the stars. Provides up to 146 hours of operation (red) or 96 hours of operation (low) from 2 AAA batteries (included). Shares all the features, including an asymmetrical single arm bracket, easily accessible battery door and large push button switch of the larger, more powerful Princeton Tec headlamps at an affordable price. Made in the U.S.A.
