Our Favorite Headlamp Is Only $25 Right Now
If there’s one camping accessory to buy for summer, it’s a headlamp. And Black Diamond’s Spot, which is currently only $25 at Amazon (a 37 percent discount) is better than a safe bet. It’s simple, but don’t take that to mean it’s basic. The Spot uses three AAA batteries, is fully waterproof, and features a main light with 300 lumens of brightness. According to Black Diamond, it can shoot a beam of light 80 meters (262 feet), but we’re more impressed by how easily you can swap between its various modes (beam, flood, strobe, red night vision) and how its brightness is adjustable as necessary.
Black Diamond recently updated the Spot — it’s smaller, brighter and has a second button — and the model that’s on sale is the older one. At $25 (for the black colorway; other hues are a bit more), it’s still an excellent deal on a headlamp that we’ve considered to be the best for years. But if you have to have what’s new, the updated version is only $11 more (you can buy it here).
