At 1.25 ounces, the two-LED Black Diamond – Ion Micro Headlamp, is everything a lightweight backpacker needs: the LEDs never need replacement (according to the manufacturer), are very bright, and the battery is likely to last for many seasons. A positron switch prevents accidental turn on and the adjustable, tilt housing lets you direct light where you want. This is one of many of my lightweight lighting solutions (I have at least a half dozen).
Another feature I like about the Black Diamond Ion is that you can wear it on your head or cinch it down on your wrist to see better up close, like when you are cooking.
The light is extremely bright with just two LEDs.
Be light. Be safe. Be one with the pack.
