2013 sees the launch of the ReVolt Headlamp from Black Diamond, which uses either rechargeable power or traditional alkaline batteries. The ReVolt can be recharged directly via a USB cable wherever there is power - vehicles, solar energy panels and of course plug sockets - making it extremely versatile and perfect for long trips away as it can be recharged even in remote and isolated areas.
