S3 rechargeable is designed with the brand new Suprabeam Dual Energy Concept, which makes it compatible with both rechargeable Li-Po batteries, and regular AAA Alkaline batteries. This flexible battery system gives you the environmental advantages of Li-Po batteries and the easy-to-get Alkaline batteries.
If you take your S3 rechargeable on a trip and run out of power, you can easily swap the rechargeable battery for AAA alkalines.

The plastic parts on the S3 rechargeable are made up by different plastic compositions to obtain maximum strength and durability. This does not only ensure that the headlamp can survive tough handling, but it keeps the wear parts lasting much longer.
The headband features two silicone stripes on the inside, to ensure that headlamp stays in place at all times. For maximum comfort the headlamp has been fitted with a foam pad against the forehead. The headband can be easily adjusted while wearing it, by pulling the two plastic clips forward or backward.
The two-button system in the S3 rechargeable is designed to be simple and precise. The buttons are solid silicone with an extra traction surface, which makes S3 rechargeable easy to operate, even with gloves or wet hands.
The buttons are placed on the right side of the headlamp, and they are easy to operate when wearing the headlamp. The buttons are marked with a white and a red ring, that indicates which button controls which LED.
The white LED has three steps (MAX, MEDIUM, LOW)
and the red LED has two (MAX, LOW).
When the battery reaches the last 10% of its total capacity, its integrated Battery Reserve feature automatically fades the light down to approximately
10-15% of the headlamps maximum lumens output.
This way you will get a visual notification, that the battery is low, and you will always know, when it is time to find a new battery or start heading home. With at least 40-80 lumens available in battery reserve for up to 30-60 minutes, depending on the rechargeable headlamp model.
Save Money - While rechargeable batteries cost more initially, they can be reused hundreds of times and last for years, if used properly.
Protect the Environment - Batteries contain corrosive materials and heavy metals. Their manufacture, transportation and disposal can impair human health and the environment- In California, batteries are banned from landfills and must be either recycled or handled as hazardous waste. Using rechargeable batteries greatly reduces the number of overall batteries required and disposed of.
Conserve Resources, Prevent Waste - Because rechargeable batteries can be used over and over, far fewer need to be manufactured and transported than when using single-use disposable batteries.
Proper usage and safe handling of lithium batteries.
