BioLite Goes Wearable With Launch of Rechargeable HeadLamp
July 19, 2018
Energy Brand Reimagines Hands-Free Light with 3D SlimFit
Brooklyn, NY, July 19, 2018 – BioLite, an innovator in off-grid energy solutions, is proud to debut The BioLite HeadLamp, a revolutionary ultrathin rechargeable light, at the 2018 Summer Outdoor Retailer show in Denver, CO. The product was designed with the objective of fitting so well, you forget you’re wearing it.
Featuring proprietary 3D SlimFit Construction, the HeadLamp incorporates three core dimensions of a better fit: a flush front, balanced weight, and smart fabrics. By integrating the electronics and fabrics together through a custom, composite molded housing, the low-profile front sits flush on the forehead without any bounce and through redirection of the li-ion power source to the back of the head, users can enjoy a near weightless feel without worry of slippage. Moisture wicking fabrics keep users cool and dry while minimizing abrasion points and internal bonded layers protect electronics from sweat.
“Headlamps are one of the most popular pieces of outdoor gear, and for years we’ve accepted the standard architecture of a massive box sitting on your forehead,” says BioLite co-founder and CEO Jonathan Cedar, “by looking at the problem with a blank slate, we were able to create a truly new design that delivers on both comfort and capability – we’re thrilled to have our retailers try it on for themselves this summer at Outdoor Retailer.”
True to the BioLite Energy Ecosystem, the HeadLamp recharges via any micro-USB power source, eliminating the need for wasteful alkaline batteries.
The BioLite HeadLamp will be available at retail in Spring 2019. Retailers and buyers attending Outdoor Retailer are invited to check out the BioLite HeadLamp at booth #32125-UL.
