The MH11 is the first fully customisable headlamp made by the Solingen-based light specialist Ledlenser. With the “Ledlenser Connect” app, the user has a range of new functions at his or her disposal. Users can add up to six functions of the lamp to their individual profiles which, after transfer from the app to the lamp, can be selected at the touch of a button. Up to six profiles can be set up fixing light intensity, light colour as well as additional functions such as Optisense. Users therefore have the opportunity to move between fixed settings depending on activity.
The timer function has been redeveloped by Ledlenser and represents a milestone in the use of headlamps. Using Ledlenser Connect, time intervals can be pre-set in which the light is switched on and off. Customisable setting options such as slow-dim mean the MH11 can also replace the alarm clock, gently waking up the user with a gradually increasing intensity of light. Users who like to read before bed can use the function to turn the light off after a certain time – ideal for battery-saving use when camping.
The app can also be used to define time intervals indicated by the MH11 by blinking. The function can be used for interval training using light signals or for indicating the lapse of a defined time period.
The SOS distress signal provides support in emergencies and is made through the lamp after activation in the app. The internationally recognised light signal indicates the need for help and assistance – only few people know the right light sequence.
Established technologies for best light quality
Alongside the new features, MH11 also includes the established core technologies for which Ledlenser lamps have become known. The lens – as in various Ledlenser headlamps – can be smoothly focused and can therefore be adjusted for various uses. The Optisense technology recognises ambient lighting and adjusts the light intensity of the MH11 accordingly in order to avoid glare and dazzling. For even greater flexibility, the headlamp is easily detachable and can be used as a hand-held flashlight. Use of the headband allows the lamp to be elevated as required.
In Power mode, the MH11 produces a light intensity of 750 lumen with a range of up to 300m with a battery lifetime of over four hours. With a light intensity of 300 lumen and range of 200m, the battery has sufficient power for eight hours, in the Low Power mode, the battery even lasts 100 hours. The Power Boost mode is intended for short-term use. In this mode, the lamp operates at an intensity of 1000 lumen – useful when looking for a lost key, for example.
