It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

The Ledlenser HF6R Work headlamp is a versatile, hands-free lighting solution designed to work in harsh environments. It can throw a focused beam for long-rage tasks up to a distance of 160 meters thanks to its 800 lumens output, while a simple turn on its focus wheel switches to a soft and even flood light for close-up work. Three color modes are available: white, red, and natural light. The natural light mode has a high color rendering index (CRI), which helps you see colors more accurately and easily distinguish objects like cables or wires.

Working long hours won’t be a problem either. The Ledlenser HF6R Work headlamp is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery that can last up to eight hours at mid-power level and is charged via a magnetic USB-C cable for added convenience. The headlamp also has a battery and charge indicator, a low battery warning, and a backup mode that activates a low-power emergency safety light when the battery is almost out. Keeping the light from overheating is a temperature control system that actively cools the light, ensuring the longevity of its LEDs.

Its IP68 rating makes it fully dust-proof and certifies that it can withstand being in up to one meter of water for 30 minutes. The HF6R Work variant includes various mounting options for helmets and a wall mount over the base HF6R Core variant, giving you more flexibility.

What we like: It has a 7-year warranty, which shows that Ledlenser stands behind the craftsmanship and quality of its products.

What to watch out for: It uses a proprietary magnetic charging cable. While convenient, you won’t be able to charge the light if you lose or damage the original cord.

Final verdict: With its selectable lighting modes, IP68 rating, and long-lasting battery, the Ledlenser HF6R Work headlamp is an excellent option for those looking for a reliable and versatile light source that can adapt to any work situation or preference.
