Another great headlamp from the manufacturer ThruNite is the 3350 lumens TH30 version, powered by a Cree XHP 70.2 LED bulb that runs on a rechargeable 18650 battery. There are 6 different brightness settings to toggle between, ranging from 0.5 lumens to the maximum of 3350 lumens, plus an SOS function for getting attention in case of emergencies. The Turbo mode with 3350 lumens has a runtime of 1.5 minutes at a time, dropping down to high mode with 1275 lumens and a runtime of 90 minutes until it cools down and is ready to boost again. The medium mode with 353 lumens lasts for 5 hours, which is bright enough to illuminate the surrounding area while hiking in the dark or walking your dog. You get a lot more runtime on the lower outputs, but they are so low that I personally don’t find them very useful. Since you can remove and replace the battery, you can bring a charged spare one, or more, for those extra long hikes. This headlamp is a popular choice with a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars from 600 verified buyers.

Product summary with latest price and store page link
The TH30 headlamp from ThruNite is a great choice if you are looking for a headlamp that runs on removable batteries. The battery can be recharged either by the included USB cable plugged into the light, or in a battery charger if you have one. If you plan on going on a long hike, you can just bring as many spare batteries as you need. The ability to detach it from the strap is also a nice touch, as you might need a small flashlight from time to time as well. If you want to take a look at other alternatives, check out this page
