Not only do mountain hikers have high standards when it comes to flashlights and headlamps – so do campers, geocachers, hunters, anglers and many other outdoors fans. Lights from Ledlenser meet precisely these high standards of quality in terms of functionality and design. We call it "technology engineered in Germany".
The series’ most powerful headlamp is lightweight and offers a light output of up to 600 lumen. These features are complemented by the one-handed focusing and lithium-ion battery, making the MH10 the ideal headlamp. Speed charging technology fully charges the light in just eight hours, offering up to 120 hours’ battery life. A red rear light and an emergency light function when the battery is running low offer additional visibility and security.
The MH6 has three light modes, Power, Low Power and Blink, which can be intuitively operated using a switch. With a light output of 200 lumen and a lighting range of up to 120 metres, the MH6 can be relied upon to light up roads and paths. An integrated charging indicator shows the battery level and provides a warning in sufficient time when the battery is getting low. The headband can be replaced or washed and therefore always stays fresh.
The MH2, the Outdoor series’ entry-level headlamp, produces 100 lumen and costs €29.90, thus offering high performance at a low price. Its ability to provide light for up to 40 hours makes it a handy companion for short or spontaneous adventures. The headlamp can also be operated with one hand and features a rapid focus system.
The MT18 makes hunting at night time easy. It produces up to 3000 lumen and offers a lighting range of up to 540 metres, lighting up night-time surroundings. The homogeneous light is excellent at illuminating paths, caves and expanses. The front switch on the handle means that the MT18 can also light up a room when placed upright. An integrated transport lock prevents the torch from being turned on accidentally, preserving battery power. The brightest of the four torches has a USB 3.0 connection through which the 10200 mAh battery can be charged in just eight hours.
The handy MT14 offers 1000 lumen, a lighting range of up to 180 metres and provides light for up to 192 hours. Speed charging ensures that the battery-operated torch is ready for use again after eight hours. It can be operated with one hand and also uses smart light technology, which provides the ideal light function at all times.
156 g in weight and 12.8 cm in size, the MT10 is truly lightweight and can fit in any jacket pocket. The battery operation and speed charging system ensure that the torch is fully charged after just six hours and can offer up to 144 hours’ battery life. The small diameter also makes the MT10 suitable for illuminating narrow spaces or rock crevices.
Stable, robust, compact – the MT6, Ledlenser’s most cost-efficient Outdoor torch, is impressive on all counts. It produces 600 lumen, which is ideal for night-time hikes or walks. The torch’s one-handed focusing makes it easy to use and allows the light beam to be adjusted quickly. As all other lights in the Outdoor series, the MT6 can be used in temperatures ranging between -20 °C and +40 °C.
