The Zebralight H53Fw head torch has a maximum output of 320 lumens from the Cree XP-L2 LED. The light is powered by 1 x AA (alkaline, NiMH or lithium) which provides convenience when you are on the go and without a charging source.
The H53Fw has a neutral white LED tint with a nominal CCT of 4500K. The warm output provides excellent colour rendering and reduces eye strain when illuminating objects close to the light.
The H53Fw offers a basic operation system; one short-click turns on the light to High and click again to turn the light off. Two short-click turns on the light to Medium and three short-click turns on the light to the beacon-strobe mode. Press and hold the switch for over 0.6 seconds to turn on the light to Low, then Medium, then High, simply releasing at the desired level.
Alternatively, the advanced operation system can be used for configuration of the multiple brightness levels. Press and hold to cycle from Low, Medium and High, release at the desired level to set. Double click to toggle and select between the two sub-levels for that main level. Sub-level selections for the 3 main levels are memorised after the light is turned off and through battery changes.
The second sub-level (H2, M2 and L2) of each main levels can be further programmed to different brightness levels. At a main level, double-click 6 times to start configuration. On subsequent double-clicks the light will cycle through different brightness levels. Short click to turn off the light when finishing configurations. The selections for the second sub-levels are memorized after the light is turned off and through battery changes.
