We have a wide range of caplamps suitable
for caving and mine exploring, ranging from the lightest currently
available to most powerful. Expensive? well not in the sense of some on the
market. Our most popular lamp is the Dragon D1800 which weighs in at only a
mere 125 grams. Our Lynx X6000 produces on full power
6000 lumens which makes it one of the most powerful mining and caving lamps
available to purchase in the world. Our X2000 produces over 2000 lumens of
beam or floodlight power. Beware competitors which quote total output as a
mix of beam and bare emitter.
All the lamps share some common features:
#1 At least 2 independent circuits.
#2 Power packs are solid cased and based
on Lithium Ion (Li Ion) technology. They are waterproof, blow resistant,
explosion proof, and economically priced, and can be carried as a spare and changed underground
without fiddling with loose cells or inserts. All power packs can be, and indeed its
recommended, 'top up' charged. They cannot be overcharged. They contain
the very best available genuine Sanyo/Panasonic cells.
#3 All lamps now carry a back up circuit
independent of the main electronics, this is incorporated into the beams.
8 and 12volt series lamps have additional pilot lights.
#4 All lamps are waterproof @ 30 minutes at 1 m
water column; IP 67 and
have no silly pointless flashy modes

What they are saying
No helmets are currently manufactured
with lamp brackets. My aluminium lamps are designed with a 40mm spacing
between holes so as to duplicate the fixing for the Petzl bracket. If your
helmet has one of these simply drill out the rivets to fit your lamp. The
bracket can be refitted if desired using our stainless steel screws.
If you need a bracket for one of our
now discontinued Oldham based lamps or someone else's, these links are useful.
