LED Headlights – Showing You the Way

A number of medical headlight manufacturers market and promote their product to be the best at the cheapest rate. Before deciding upon a particular brand, you need to be sure of their reputation and reviews. The problems that are often experienced with cheap brand LED headlights are:

Poor Grip: They are not able to grip properly on your head and can be irritating for extended use.

Weight: The weight of the headlight may cause discomfort to your neck and back after being used for extended periods of time.

No Dimmer: Dimmer is a very handy tool to change the intensity of the LED headlight, some cheap brands do not include a dimmer, and light intensity cannot be changed.

Battery issues: Use of inefficient batteries in LED headlights may minimize its duration. Some brands, in order to sell their product at cheaper rates, use poor batteries which lead to poor performance of the LED lamp.

Heat: The heat emitted by the LED headlights is close to 3.4 btu/hour. This is much lower than incandescent light bulbs and CFLs. LED light output is 4-5 watts at a minimum and 25-28 watt at maximum. LEDs also contain no toxic mercury, which makes them eco-friendly. All these features make them the preferred option when compared to other light sources.

Light Wavelength: LEDs are able to deliver specific wavelengths of light, which is preferred during medical operations. By delivering accurate light wavelengths, visibility is improved for the physician, and can prevent common lighting issues.
