The Wolf Eyes Dingo Rechargeable Headlamp has arrived! Uniquely this LED rechargeable headlamp comes with two different lens, utilises Wolf Eyes rechargeable batteries and is fully controllable from the front. This version includes the battery and charger, the same headlamp is available without battery and charger here - Dingo LED Headlamp.
The Dingo LED Rechargeable Headlamp is supplied with two different lenses to give you three choices of beams from your Dingo headlamp. There is a long distance tele lens perfect for hunting, it provides a spot to highlight wild dogs or foxes into the distance. This lens is adjustable by sliding from spot to a flood from 11o to 50o. Also in the kit is a wide angle lens, this produces a very broad spot out to shorter distances, say 50 metres, perfect for someone tasked with supervising a storage yard, emergency services or for chasing bunnies. Again this lens can also be adjusted by sliding, from 50o to 76o. Due to an innovative glass cover over the LED which makes it splashproof, the Dingo rechargeable headlamp can also be used in No Lens mode at. This provides a very, very even light over about 160o with no spot. On high beam this is like daylight out to about 5 metres, on the different levels perfect for close work or tasks like eating, medical emergencies, reading, etc. A fabulous mode for those who do close work.
All the controls for the headlamp are on the front of the Dingo, for easy access and positive control. There are 4 levels (High, Medium, MediumLow, Low) and strobe, all easily accessed by twisting the front bezel. The bezel can also be slid forward and back to control focus of the two lenses. The headlamp bezel can also be tilted easily by the user. Every controls is in front for safety and more control by the user of the headlamp.
The Dingo LED Rechargeable Headlamp utilises the very light and powerful Wolf Eyes LRB168A lithium ion rechargeable battery ( it can also use 2 x CR123 non rechargeable batteries). This is the same battery used in almost all other Wolf Eyes torches or headlamps. As with all Wolf Eyes products this headlamp is regulated, so the light doesn't fade when in use. This rechargeable headlamp will be able to use your existing batteries from almost all Wolf Eyes flashlights, or vica versa. Due to the power of the battery, only one is required, making for a lighter and more manoeuvrable battery pack. Operating voltage 2.7V to 6V.
The Wolf Eyes rechargeable battery provides 150 minutes of runtime on High, 295 minutes on Medium, 17 hours on Medium Low and 136 hours on Low. Being a lithium ion rechargeable battery it also works in sub zero conditions.
The front bezel is constructed of aircraft grade aluminium with cooling fins built in so you don't overheat your LED (if an LED is overheated it has a permanently reduced output). The Dingo headtorch utilises a 800 lumen LED with 500 lumens out the front. There is a large control knob at the rear with positive and broad clicks built in at each level, suitable to be used with gloved hands. You can also slide this bezel forward to adjust the flood and spot of either of the two supplied lenses. This bezel is attached by an adjustable bracket to an insulated pad, which connects the adjustable, elasticised headband and top strap. At the rear, to keep things evenly balanced, is the very light single battery holder. Being only a single battery means the battery pack doesn’t bang on your head like some other headlamps.
The Dingo, the LED Rechargeable Headlamp for all seasons, the long distance lens for hunting, the medium distance for bunnies or yard work and no lens mode for tying fishing hooks on or close work.
Excellent TorchBy: Chuck on 8 January 2017I have used three dingos for a few years now. Two are still going strong but one started flickering after a year. I keep one for hunting and one for the house. I don't even bother with my sniper 260 anymore as the dingo does everything hands free. Once I was camping and my mates lantern stopped working so I took the wolfeyes lens off and hung it off the tree to get a complete flood. On the lower power that kept our camp lit at night for two days. All headlamps these days should be using the LiOn batteries like the dingo as they last a long time and are not affected by the cold. The elastic has also kept its tension after so many years so it really is a quality product.
EnlightenedBy: Rhys S on 15 September 2016I've always gone the way of a cheaper headlamp and have forever been a little hesitant when it came to going out and investing in a more well known brand. But after a fair few tries of different lamps (too many I think), I finally decided to trade up. And I'm so glad I did. I ended up going with the Dingo and so far it just can't do me wrong. One thing I thought I would never use was the changeable angle lenses, but so far I've made great use of the feature. With them being quick & easy to change I find myself fitting the appropriate lens for the task at hand and getting to work. So overall I'm really pleased. Easy to use, adjustments are quick and the mount is very comfortable. Haven't yet had the need to run it all night & kill the battery in one go, so I can't really comment too much on the life of charge. I'll probably look for a nice little hand held in the near future to accompany the head lamp as a simple backup. Also, ordered it in the morning & got it early that arvo.....I'm within the Sydney region where they ship from, but was still really pleased to get it in such a short period of time.
Charging accessoriesBy: Jason Bonanno on 25 June 2016The product is very impressive I regards to comfort and brightness. I'm not sure if it's possible but there was a usb charging adaptor for the car so I can charge the battery while driving around will make the charging process a lot easier. Overall very impressed
Good productBy: Peter on 28 May 2016Works well. Great battery life, and fantastic light output. My only drawback is the front plate. I use the product on a mining hard hat, which is regularly on and off. The front plate (with light attached) has a tendency to slip/ride up my hard hat. The result is me persistently pushing it back down. It's a minor teething issue which I think will be resolved with double sided tape. Just have to make it work for me.
Impressed yet again!By: Jason Lownds on 9 May 2016My second wolf eyes product and I won't ever be going back to the previous brand I was using. Awesome gear and awesome customer service! I even got a hand written thankyou note with my purchase. I use my headlamp for work and play and I'm very impressed!
