Nebo’s latest light operates in a hands-free mode by clipping onto your ear, just like one of those why-are-you-wearing-that-in-the-grocery-store Bluetooth headsets. Nebo touts the light’s “dual mode” functionality because besides the expected ultra-bright white LED light, it also features a green LED which they claim helps you to maintain your night vision. (Though I suspect maybe it just helps them to see more green.)
The light includes a unique twin-lens setup that helps to focus the light beam. Once you attach it to your ear and aim it forward, its bright light will effortlessly follow your gaze. And the earpiece is reversible, so you lefties can wear it on your left ear — or you can buy two for a real “dual-mode” setup.
The whole thing runs on 2 long-lasting CR2032 lithium batteries. Street price is about $13 — but it can be tough to find online unless you just order it from the manufacturer. Highland Woodworking has it, but you’ll pay more in shipping unless you’ve got other items you’re ordering from them.
