Headlamp Lucifer L+
Dear customers, slightly inovated L+ headlamps are available for pre-order with shipping date 11. October 2021.
This is orienteering headlamp - light, small, but incredibly powerful. Headlamp with superior light output of 3200 lumens, especially for orienteering, mushing and downhill.
Headlamp made for orienteering racing and maximum light output
Lucifer L+ headlamp is 3200 lumen headlamp - you wont likely found any similar with so nice light color, so powerful, bright and small. Maximum light output is superior for mushing, orienteering and downhill. This light is made with 4 high power LEDs which are cooled with massive cooling ribs.
CNC milled light and shallow body
This is orienteering headlamp made for 21th century - headlamp with so high light output and yet in this compact size.
Headlamp body is CNC milled from aerospace alluminum alloy and then hard anodized with protection layer 25um strong. It is made with many cooling fins, but at the same time as small and light as possible which brings great stability.
Massive cooling ribs means Lucifer L+ can shine on the highest 3200lm mode virtually for unlimited time but have to be properly cooled. In 20°C ambient temperature normal pace running gives enough airflow to cool down body and not overheat.
Shallow just 21mm deep body ensures great stability during move.
Li-ion batteries with the highest capacity | DETAILS
Different batterypacks for your needs
Lucifer L+ can use 2-cell or 4-cell batterypacks. As a default, we recommend 4-cell batterypack made from Samsung INR18650-35E cells.
2-cell batterypacks could be also used, but runtimes, especially on the highest mode (BOOST) is limited - see runtimes table. This is good batterypack for training where you dont need prolonged runtimes. 2-cell pack is light and can be worn on a headstrap which is big advantage.
4-cell batterypack is preffered option. Its too heavy to be worn on a head. Its high capacity is good for orienteering racing, when you need to shine on maximum and very long. Case is soft, rubber, cells can be in future easily rebuilded.
|2-CELLS BATTERYPACK||4-CELLS BATTERYPACK - FLAT||4-CELLS BATTERYPACK - SQUARE|

Efficient electronics | DETAILS
Ultra efficiacy brings longest runtime
Electronics is completely made by us from carefully chosen discrete components, all driven by 8-bit microcontroller Atmel. Components are quality X7R ceramic capacitors, n-mosfets with very low resistance, large shielded coil and precise thermistors and resistors. Now comes with high reliability grade components and large durable tactile sealed switch rated 500,000 cycles.
This way we are no longer tied to any specific intelligent circuit and we can easily upgrade firmware and add other features and attain so high performance. Our electronics reach up to 96% percent effeciency when converting battery voltage to LED voltage. You get from it longer runtimes.
Light has got CONSTANT LIGHT REGULATION, intensity of all modes is constant and does not lower when the battery is being discharged. When is battery no longer able to deliver needed energy, electronics switches to lower mode. Light never shuts off all of a sudden. Light is continuous, not fast blinking (PWM).
Electronics also monitors REMAINING BATTERY CHARGE and let you know if the battery is discharged down to 33%, down to 10% or completely empty with 1, 2 or 3 blinks.
Brilliant LEDs CREE XP-L2 | DETAILS
Maximally efficient XP-L2 LEDs
We use high power LEDs XP-L2 from Cree with color temperature 4500K, which is very pleasant neutral white color that has great color spectrum (CRI index min 70). Diodes XP-L2 have 25% higher light output than previous diodes XM-L2. Thanks to the lower color temperature the light better penetrate fog and rain, you can better estimate distances, differentiate colors and identify things and obstacles.
Lucifer L+ gives out maximum of 3200 lumens ANSI (heating and optics losses subtracted). Efficiency is influenced by cooling, i.e. the better cooling of diodes the more effective the diodes work. LEDs and the whole electronics is on one copper printed circuit board with Direct Thermal Path (Sinkpad) that enables quick transfer of heat to the aluminum shell. This is the best cooling system that can be produced!
Perfect light distribution | DETAILS
Combination of dbeamshapes
Lucifer L+ uses 4 individual PMMA TIR optics with highest optical properties and angle of light 13°, 20° or 29°. Optics are the same prooved optics we use in all other headlamps. Light cone is very pleasent, very smooth from the brightest center to the sides without any distracting patterns and cirles. Whole aluminium frame with optics can be interchanged by a skilled user.
Everyone can choose its own best combination from 15 combinations. Generally for sport we recommend optics 13°+13°+20°+29°.
For orienteering run - very fast runners combination 13°+13°+13°+13° provide perfect feeling. In two highest modes (BOST,HIGH) the map is peripherally illuminated evenly over the entire area without the need to tilt the head down. Overexposure of your map is practically impossible, unless you significantly tilt down the headlamp which you never done in real use. In lower modes (MID, LOW) the map is peripherally less illuminated.
For orienteering run - normal racers and slow runners choose rather 13°+13°+13°+20° or 13°+13°+13°+29°, maybe even 13°+13°+20°+29°. We have used all these 3 combinations in various orienteering events and all are fine. Difference between 13°+13°+13°+20° and 13°+13°+13°+29° is small to neglible.
For night downhill/mtb rides choose 13°+13°+13°+13°, 13°+13°+13°+20° or 13°+13°+13°+29°. All these 3 options have great throw distance and good side illumination. Even the narrowest combination is not strictly targeted search light. For highest speed option 13°+13°+13°+13° provides highest throw. For normal mtb riders is better either option 13°+13°+13°+20° or 13°+13°+13°+29° with better side illuminance.
For close-up work or when you need really wide illumantion of space, use wider combination of optics, e.g. 13°+20°+29°+29°.
Modes and user interface | DETAILS
2 separate user interfaces
The L+ headlamp offers 7 modes - VERY LOW, LOW, MED, HIGH, BOOST, BLINKING MODE and SOS. The four most frequently used modes (LOW, MED, HIGH and VERY HIGH) are easily accessible.
There is no ‘last mode’ memory - it’s unnecessary when all modes are available with a maximum of two clicks. The light turns on the same way every time and turns off with one long press.
EASY USER INTERFACE is easily understood. Modes can be changed with short clicks, cycling through LOW-MID-HIGH-BOOST-LOW etc
ADVANCED USER INTERFACE allows fast switching between modes. Modes can be changed with short, long and very long presses. A short click lowers the mode and cycles between low and mid mode. Long press switches to a higher mode.
The remaining 3 modes are the same for both interfaces. You access VERY LOW mode with two consecutive button clicks, BLINKING mode with three and SOS mode with four clicks.
All mode switching in advanced user interface is based on short/long button presses. You can try this out at our website using your computer’s mouse. Our default advanced interface is here: https://www.luciferlights.net/interactive, and our easy interface here: https://www.luciferlights.net/interactive_alt.

Runtimes | DETAILS
Extreme and real runtimes
Runtimes specified in table are minimum runtimes. When batteries are not able to supply enough energy, headlamp switches to lower modes. When its finally switched to the lowest mode, headlamp no longer regulate brightness and light diminishes over a long time when shut off completely. When using batterycase with 4 cells, runtimes are at least double.
We specify runtime as a time until the brightness drops below 70% of initial brightness.
Attention! We specify runtimes much more strictly than ANSI NEMA FL-1 standard requires. ANSI standard runtime is the time until brightness drops to 10% of initial. This is nonsense and nothing useful for a user. Therefore we specify our runtimes differently, they are shorter than ANSI runtimes, but worthwhile!
Wall charger and charging
Attention! Currently we offer only 1A USB charger or slow wall charger 8.4/0.5A. Fast 1.5A wall chargers will be available during October!
4-cell batterypack is supposed to be charged with attached wall charger 8.4V, 1.5A (marked as "fast charger"). Wall charger comes with EU plug. Charging of fully depleted 4-cell batterypack takes 5 hours. Charger lights red during charge and green when completed.
Lucifer M6 charger 8.4V, 0.5A can be also used but full charging takes 14h.
