The red light
on a headlamp
is intended for preserving your night vision
while still providing some light
so you can see. Additionally red light
modes on a headlamp
aren't as blinding to your friends, so it is ideal when using a headlamp
with a group of people. Cool! Headlamps
preserve your night vision.
Red and green lights don't washout the human eyes cones (or is it the rods) like a white light does. That means you will still have some night vision capability after you turn off a green or red flashlight and you will be back up to full night vision sooner.
100 lumens is considered bright enough for most walkways — including commercial properties. 100 lumens is equivalent to about 20 watts.
Lumens measure how much light you are getting from a bulb. More lumens means it's a brighter light; fewer lumens means it's a dimmer light. Lumens let you buy the amount of light you want. ... To replace a 100 watt (W) incandescent bulb, look for a bulb that gives you about 1600 lumens.
