More Details

See the Accessories FAQ for more information. If you don’t already have one, we recommend purchasing a certified 18650 Li-Ion charger to recharge the battery. You can purchase chargers, batteries, and replacement parts directly from us here.

More Details

The Halo is designed to benefit anyone who wears a hard hat and works in high-risk, low-light environments. The Halo is used by personnel in a number of work environments including construction, utilities, mining, maintenance, warehouse, and many more.

More Details

The Halo is designed to work on hard shell hard hats. The Halo has not been designed to work on soft caps.

More Details

The Halo has not been designed for cyclists or cycling helmets. It fits only a few of the many different kinds of cycling helmets available on the market.

More Details

The Halo is designed to work on the majority of hard hats sold today.  It does happen to fit on many climbing/spelunking helmets, as well as a few cycling and kayaking helmets. 

More Details

Yes, the Halo is designed to work on the majority of hard hats whether worn forwards or backwards.

More Details

It will depend on how your earmuffs or face shield connect to your hard hat. There are some types of clip-on hard hat accessories including earmuffs and face shields that are not compatible with the Halo.

More Details

Functionality

Yes. The grey mode button is at the front top center of the Halo.

More Details

Yes. The Halo is designed to operate in all weather conditions. 

More Details

No. Please let sales@illumagear.com know if you are interested in such a product. 

More Details

Not that we’ve experienced and no more than using any other personal head-mounted light.

More Details

It depends on the circumstances. In some cases, nearby workers also benefit from the amount of light produced by the Halo. In other cases, you may wish to switch to Dim mode when working with or speaking to others.

One advantage the Halo offers over headlamps is that its 360-degree illumination allows other people’s eyes to gradually adjust as they approach the wearer, rather than being blinded when the wearer turns suddenly.

More Details

It will depend on which battery you use and which mode or modes you use. A fully charged ILLUMAGEAR 18650 3400 mAh Li-Ion battery provides an average of 15 hrs of runtime across the 4 modes. It provvides over 5 ½ hours of non-stop maximum power, while the lower power Dim mode provides over 34 hrs of runtime

More Details

Specifications

The Halo has been designed to survive in tough environments. It has an Ingress Protection Rating of IP67 when the battery door is sealed shut, meaning it keeps out all dirt, dust, mud, pressurized water spray, and submersion in water up to 1m deep for 30 minutes. Check out our durability tests here or on the ILLUMAGEAR YouTube channel.

More Details

The Halo weighs 284g (approxiately 10 oz). 

More Details

Yes. The Halo is designed to operate most effectively where the temperature ranges from 0°C (32°F) to 50°C (122°F). Storing or operating the product outside of this temperature may shorten the life of the battery. Storing or operating the Halo outside the temperature range of -20°C (-4°F) and 60°C (140°F) may damage the product. Lithium-Ion battery life is typically shortened in cold temperatures. 

More Details

No. While the Halo Model HAWF-01A is a low voltage device, it does not meet Intrinsic Safe (IS) protection standards. ILLUMAGEAR plans to introduce an IS version of the Halo in the future.

More Details

The LEDs in the Halo have an expected life of 36,000 hours. 

More Details

The Halo is a Personal Active Safety System™. ANSI A10.47 describes Personal Active Safety Systems as a source of illumination that can be used to enhance worker visibility (Section 14.2, “Illumination Levels”). The standard also states that personal active safety devices are a method of providing additional protection for flaggers (Section 5.2.2, “Flagger Safety”).

The Halo was specifically designed not to invalidate the ANSI rating of a hard hat. ANSI Z89.1 states that nothing may pierce or permanently affix to the hard hat. Our unique patented tension spring mount system was designed to hold onto the hard hat without invalidating this rating. In regards to OSHA, there is no current code that defines lighting requirements in the manner delivered by the Halo. According to OSHA standard 1926.56, there are minimum illumination intensities in foot-candles for US job sites. The light emitted by the Halo exceeds all minimum requirements as defined by OSHA for any type of construction work. 

More Details

The Halo is not designed to provide high voltage protection, however, if used with a Class E or Class G hard hat, the Halo does not affect the protection provided by the hard hat and is safe to use.

More Details

The Halo is certified by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory as having passed the tests verifying a dielectric strength of at least 30,000V.

More Details

Since the Halo is mounted on a hard hat, that hard hat needs to meet ANSI standard Z89.1 Per ANSI guideline 1910.269(I)(8)(v)(C): "Arc-rated protection is not necessary for the employee's head when the employee is wearing head protection meeting 1910.135 if the estimated incident energy is less than 9 cal/cm2 for exposures involving single-phase arcs in open air or 5 cal/cm2 for other exposures.” Guideline 1910.135 refers directly to ANSI Z89.1.

The dielectric strength of the Halo is over 30,000V.

More Details

Maintenance

We recommend cleaning the Halo with a dry or damp cloth. However, the Halo does have an Ingress Protection Rating of IP67 when the battery door is sealed shut, meaning it is protected against submersion in water up to 1m deep for 30 minutes or any water projected from powerful jets against it from any direction. Always avoid getting anything inside the battery compartment (besides the battery, of course). 

More Details

No. Opening any part of the Halo besides the battery door will invalidate the warranty. If you have any product issues, please contact ILLUMAGEAR Support.

Product Benefits

Every headlamp is different, but a typical camping headlamp produces about 50-75 lumens while the Halo produces up to 202 lumens. For more information on how the Halo compares, watch this video:

More Details

The Halo is designed specifically to fit on a hard hat, light a worker’s entire task area without adjustment, and illuminate the worker in all directions.

More Details

The Halo actively illuminates the worker and is not dependent on a secondary source of light reflecting at the right angle. The Halo actually improves the value of reflective gear by casting light down on the wearer as well as other people nearby and reflecting that light out.

More Details

The Halo is portable and personal, illuminating a worker’s task area without shadows regardless of where the worker moves, and at a fraction of the cost.

More Details

Manufacturing

The Halo is designed and engineered in Seattle, Washington, USA, and manufactured in China.

More Details

No.
