When you live further north, you really notice the difference in daylight between summer and winter. In the winter, the days are shorter and the nights are longer. Normally, this wouldn’t matter so much – most cities have streetlamps or other lights that constantly light up the night sky. When you live outside the city, though, there aren’t many street lights, which means if you’re an early morning riser, you might be going outside while it’s still dark (in the morning.)
While flashlights could certainly work, using an Energizer night headlight, like the Energizer Brilliant Beam TrailFinder Headlight, helps us free up that second hand that so often comes in useful, like when we need to run out to the wood pile for some firewood. So, on our latest trip to Walmart, we decided to pick up a headlight to light up those nights we need to be out of the house.
It wasn’t immediately clear where the Energizer night headlights were in the store, and after checking the battery center and the lights section, we were quickly directed to the camping section, where we found four different options. After weighing the benefits of each headlight, we finally opted for the Energizer Brilliant Beam TrailFinder, mainly because it’s powerful beam, coming in at 77 lumens, is just what we need up here. I also liked that there were four different lighting options – high beam, low beam, floodlight, and “night vision,” which uses a red light so you don’t disturb other people (or wildlife.)
We recently set-up a firepit area where we can BBQ and just “hang out” at night. Sometimes, if the fire runs low, we need to make a quick trip to the wood pile to gather more wood. Usually, it’s a rather slow “quick trip” because we have to navigate in almost total darkness. The solution – put on the Energizer night headlight and BAM! instant light to shine the way AND you can still use both hands to stack up the wood for the fire.
We enjoy taking night walks around the land with the dogs, but at night, we don’t want to let them run around off-leash. Sophie and Sera are both leash trained, but with the occasional rabbits, deer, and coyotes that roam around, it’s better that they aren’t sniffing out of sight. When we’re walking the dogs, it’s much easier to hold onto the leashes of two dogs if you don’t have to hold a flashlight as well. Especially when the two dogs sometimes start following scents in opposite directions.
The hands-free light that the Energizer night headlights provides can be used in even more ways – from lighting up the engine while working on the car or heading out to turn off the sprinklers in the middle of a rainstorm (flashlight, umbrella, and keys).
