With even more power and added features, the Black Diamond Spot Headlamp is our most popular headlamp for everything from late-night rappels to pre-dawn ski tours. Now with 130 lumens of bright, fully adjustable light, the Spot also features our new PowerTap Technology, which allows for quick, on-the-fly brightness adjustments with just a finger tap to the side of the Spot?s touch sensitive housing. The Spot's bright, powerful beam is ideal for finding anchors or illuminating the trail, while its proximity mode handles camp tasks, tent reading and gearing up at the car. A handy lock mode keeps the light from turning on accidentally in your pack or pocket.

  • One TriplePower LED, two SinglePower white LEDs and two SinglePower red LEDs emit 130 lumens (max setting)
  • PowerTap Technology allows fast and simple transitioning between full and dimmed power in order to momentarily increase illumination in distance or proximity modes
  • Red night-vision mode has proximity and strobe settings, and activates without cycling through the white mode
  • Sleek, low profile design uses three AAA batteries and three-level power meter shows remaining battery life for three seconds after switching on headlamp
  • Settings include: full strength in proximity and distance modes, dimming, strobe, red night vision and lock mode
  • Protected against splashing or sprayed water from any angle (IPX 4)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Always the best headlamp/flashlight in camp This light has been around for awhile now. I'm on my 3rd set, not from lack of quality, but lots of use. Black Diamond actually just replaced a set of ones I had that had a few issues within the warranty period. Their service is amazing. The lights themselves are so easy to operate, giving you the brightest light out there for the size. Yeah you can get brighter, but not in this size. They are light and very comfortable. The new feature of adding the tap/touch to toggle between 75% and 100% is nice too, although I find that 75% does 95% of what I need. Keep up the great work BD! August 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Headlamp Purchased my Spot headlamp about month ago, reminds me a lot of my ReVolt, minus the ability use and recharge rechargeable batteries (which I never used). Easy to use, bright and nowhere near as heavy as the Storm. I like this headlamp a lot. August 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by On/off button sticks in cold temperatures It's light, it's bright, it's got good battery life. My main beef with the SPOT, as a year round trail runner, is that the on/off button doesn't operate well in temperatures below about 15F. Push and push at it, and it won't turn off (though prolonged holding it down will still make it dim). A significant problem if you're winter camping or hiking, mountaineering, or trail running. I like this lamp better than my old Petzl Tikkina for its brightness and adjustability, but I like the Petzl's sliding switch better than the SPOT's push button, for this reason. July 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bright, comfortable, easy to use I love this headlamp! Super bright and lots of settings make it versatile. June 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great weight and always getting brighter BD continues to improve on this already outstanding headlamp. 130 lumens works well and it seems every few years it just keeps geting better. We use these as headlamps for our SAR members and they are very dependable. June 16, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great features, needs improvement I recently purchased the Spot headlamp and I love the variety of features combine with the lightweight and bright lamp. Unfortunately, the top button is pretty sensitive and even in the "locked mode", it regularly turns itself on while in my pack and drains the batteries. I'm now having to put the lamp in a case so that it won't turn on which is just more junk to carry. June 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost Perfect The best, long lasting brightest light i ever use! To test the maximum ability, i always used it on full power, really bright to light up entire trail which is very helpful for me and the other hikers nearby. I've used it on my expedition to mount Rinjani for 5 days 4 night. Really satisfied with the quality of the light. and yes, i would recommend this product to the others June 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for aviation Use this light for in cockpit flight flashlight along with pre flight inspections. The dimming feature works perfect along with the red light function May 5, 2014
