I’m a bit of a headlamp geek – I have 5 headlamps for my 1 head – and so when Dewalt announced their new Jobsite Tough model, I listened closely.
The new model, DWHT70440, looks a bit bulky, but not oppressively so. Its LED delivers 104-lumens on high and 25-lumens at low brightness settings. It also features an adjustable lens angle and easy-toggle controls. The case is 2-meter impact resistant, water resistant, and a shatter-resistant lens and slip-resistant strap complete the package.
Dewalt offered very specific runtime specs for a fresh set of 3xAAA batteries – 6-hrs 23-mins on high brightness, and 29-hrs 48-mins on low. Retail specs are given as up to 6 hrs on high setting and up to 29 hrs on low.
