Unable to recharge

I found myself out of battery and when it came time to recharge: impossible. So I did without it. But once back (in the dark), I dismantled the lamp and the position of the usb-c port is such that it is impossible to insert a standard usb-c cable all the way to the bottom (supporting photo ). So to recharge it, I take it apart, to the detriment of durability I imagine...

USB C cable problem

Like many users, I cannot charge with a standard USB C cable from home. I no longer have on hand, the adapter provided with purchase obviously.

Emergency light when…

Emergency lamp when traveling at night, very practical.

good headlamp but...

hello, I am on my second HL 500 headlamp. I am happy with it from a lighting and handling point of view but very quickly the lamp is easily detached from its support when it is in a bag, in a pocket or in full activity which means that I sometimes lose it .... which is regrettable .... Do you have a solution?

USB-C Be careful

Unfortunately, the USB-C port is very deep in the housing, so charging with many USB-C cables is often not possible. Very unfortunate :(

The lamp is not…

The lamp is not heavy, it lights efficiently

Charging problem

As other reviews have mentioned before, it is almost impossible to charge this headlamp without the cable sold with it (unless you want to spend some time pressing the latter firmly against the lamp). As I use it very rarely, it had been a few months since I bought it and I hadn't had the need to recharge it, obviously impossible to get my hands on the cable (and at the same time given the number of usb-c that we have at home...) and so I find myself with an unusable headlamp... The worst part is that an employee responded to a comment on the subject, explaining that the The brand was aware of this manufacturing defect, and yet the item is still sold! If that isn't incompetence coupled with a lack of ethics, I don't know what is.

Very satisfactory previous model,…

Previous model very satisfactory, so buy with your eyes closed but who says new design also means new charging socket. The tip is universal but sinks in when you plug it in, so it's impossible to recharge the lamp without holding the wire...
