Default Hard Hat Lights

For you that wear hard hats at work, what flashlight do you recommend for your hard hat at night? I dropped and broke mine that I had and looking to buy another one but I need something brighter than the one I had.

I have one made by NightStick. It works good and is pretty bright.

Does it have to be intrinsically safe?

I have a Pro Tac HL by Streamlight.
If you shine it in your co-workers eyes, it will blind them!!

Fenix lights. I've got one of their head lights and two flash lights. Very bright and good battery life. Rechargeable lithium ion batteries.

I have a couple of the Nightsticks, but the springs that hold the batteries in them get weak and cause them to flicker or not work at all after awhile.

My favorite headlamps for hunting, etc. are Fenix, and I'll have to look into they're hard hat models.

Are any of these listed a simple one push of a button on and one push of the same button off?

My current and previous ones require several presses to go through the modes I donít want to turn them off .

I donít need 3 different brightness modes and a flashing mode.

Just -
ON
and
OFF

I work for a company that is setup direct with Fenix, Milwaukee, Streamlight and all others. We are a large supplier of all tooling and consumables for refineries. If anyone is looking for a good light we should have it in stock.

Nightstick XPP-5458G. It's an Intrinsically Safe light with multiple modes and light brightness levels. 3 AA batteries last quite a while.

I use Nightsticks. Company buys them so if they break you just go get another one. They work just fine.

The one I have is. Or you can push it twice real quick and put it on deam. Other than that, it is a on-off button.

The Milwaukee usb rechargeable red lithium. I added moleskin to mine and wear it as a head lamp. Absolutely love it. Bought the red lithium ROVER also and its great.

Where I work they now stock the pelican headlamps. Theyíre fairly bright but batteries go pretty quick. We used to have some streamlight ones that were a lot better. Like this
