The Storm 500-R Headlamp by Black Diamond is the light at the end of the tunnel for those in the dark about outdoor lighting.
With the convenience of micro-USB recharging - you can beat the batteries when powering up, down under. A true henchman for your head, the recycled elastic Repreve-fibre headband offers supple next-to-skin comfort. From the dark driveways to the black paddocks, this headlamp boasts red, green, and blue night-vision hues. Light modes include full strength, dimming, strobe, and lock, enabling ultimate illumination at any distance.
An IP67 waterproof rating allows it to operate at the equivalent pressure of one metre underwater for 30 minutes, so you can brave the after-dark fishing. Blazing a maximum light output of 500 lumens, enjoy a dynamic duo of dim and full power with the PowerTap™ technology for instant transitioning between the two. Out-shining all features is Black Diamond's light bulb - Brightness Memory, retaining your chosen brightness after switching off.

This products description states that it requires a 2400 mAh rechargeable battery i was wondering if the 1500 mAh rechargeable battery would work just as well?

I think there's abit of confusion here sorry! It doesn't require a 2400mAh battery, it has in integrated 2400mAh battery - meaning it's built in & fully sealed.
The 1500mAh Black Diamond Batteries are for non-sealed models, or models that run on AAA & have the option of putting a separate battery pack in.
Hope that clarifies things!

can you have this charging from a battery power bank and use it at the same time?
Tim - Geelong, VIC(1 year ago)
Great idea! I've just tested this out for you instore, and the headtorch runs as normal whilst plugged in to charge. It comes with a shorter charge cable, so you'd probable want to pick up a longer one so you can keep the powerbank in you backpack or pocket.

Hi. Does this take both the rechargeable battery, and normal replaceable batteries?
Kate - Dayboro, QLD(1 year ago)
No, this only takes the Black Diamond lithium rechargeable battery pack.
If you are after a flexible option check out the Storm 450 which takes AAA batteries, and grab the BD1500 rechargeable as an option.
