A great ultralight backup light, the new Ion Light by Black Diamond is small enough to stash just about anywhere, plus the reflector-housed, 1/2 watt LED casts a far-reaching beam for finding your way up that final pitch of 5.11 or down that last mile back to the trailhead. Our lightest headlamp at 30 grams (1 oz), the Ion has a pivoting head that angles the light anywhere you need it, and a replaceable 6-volt battery provides power for 15 hours at the low setting and 3 hours on high. Yes, the Ion is unnoticeable in size and weight, but don't let its diminutive size fool you-this two-setting headlamp is Black-Diamond-tough, able to withstand apocalyptic levels rain and sleet.
With its compact size and ultralight weight of just a single ounce, the Black Diamond Ion Headlamp is perfect to stash in your glove box, backpack, or pocket. The Ion can cast a beam 22 meters long on the high setting, and the IPX4 water-resistant rating means a surprise rain shower won't leave you stranded in the dark.
The Black Diamond Ion Headlamp is an ultralight, just-in-case headlamp for those times when you need lighting most. A single, 12-lumen SinglePower LED helps you make it down the rappels or find the trail, and the momentary switch prevents accidental battery drain when the Ion is in your pack.

I had one of these, but for me, it just wasn't bright enough, and the battery drained really fast. I know it is meant to be ultralight, but I would rather carry a few more ounces in order to have a bright, long-lasting beam.
