Frequently Asked Questions:

Is LoBeams rechargeable?

Yes! Never buy batteries (for your headlamp) again. Plus, because LoBeams dims automatically, it can last much longer than other rechargeable headlamps on a single charge.

How long should a charge last?

It depends on how you use it, but most people get about 20 hours of use before they have to recharge. With LoBeams social mode turned off (that is, with no fancy power-saving or be-kind-to-your-friends features) the very brightest, energy hogging mode will last about 3.5 hours. It is stupidly bright, and you probably will use it sparingly.

What is your return policy?

Take a month to try it out! We'll happily refund your money, but we'd be especially interested to know what didn't work for you. Because LoBeams lets you update the firmware, we might be able to customize the features to meet your needs.

Wait, a headlamp that gets firmware updates?

Only if you want them! LoBeams works great out of the box. There's no radio, so you have to plug it into a computer. It mounts as a USB thumb drive, and you drag and drop a file from our website. Takes about 20 seconds.

Why would I want to update my firmware?

We'll be regularly rolling out new features, as well as improving the features you know and love. This means better battery life, faster gesture recognition, and new fun surprises.

Firmware updates lets us learn from you and then actually do something about it, so we can keep improving the headlamp you already own without having to make you buy a new one.

What's up with your packaging?

We think that plastics are fine material choices for durable goods. After all, you don't want your hiking gear to start biodegrading in a rainstorm. But we think that plastic is an unacceptable choice for packaging, because the very first thing you want it to do after you open the box is biodegrade, right?

We are delighted to ship LoBeams in a box that is easily recyclable in most local communities.
