B34 Cyclops rechargeable multi-function headlamp – the Swiss Army knife of headlamps! Customer Reviews

Sometimes I stare at my screen, thinking “this can’t be right – so much torch for so little money?!”

The new B34 Cyclops is one of those, incorporating an amazing range of useful tools, including:

- a cool-white beam with a range of up to 100 ANSI metres (over 30m in the real world) and three brightness levels for moving around and finding things in the dark.

- a floody white light for close-up work like reading, cooking or DIY, with two brightness levels.

- a floody red light that doesn't affect our night-vision, disturb animals or attract mozzies.

- a flashing red light to attract (human) attention, like when you’re running, cycling or broken down by the side of the road.

- a defensive strobe, SOS signal and beacon (slow flash) of the white beam.

- a proximity sensor so you can turn any of these modes off and on by waving your hand in front of the headlamp (once you’ve activatated this feature).

- takes two different sizes of rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries for the longest runtimes and lowest operating costs.

- charge your Li-Ions by connecting the headlamp to a cellphone charger or USB-A port, like the one in your car or multiconnector.

- also takes three regular AAA batteries, disposable or rechargeable, in the supplied adapter.

- battery-status indicator, so you can monitor power consumption and make sure you’re never left in the dark (or that you don’t have an excuse when you are).

- "over and around" headstrap that allows you to clip out the headlamp when you need a hand-held light.

- headstrap bracket can be used separately as a table-stand (bounce the beam off the ceiling during load-shedding) or attach the light to your bike or helmet.

So the question you’re probably asking yourself is – should I go for the D10 Cyclops, B34 Cyclops, or the SP40 Hammer?

Here’s a comparison of features to help you choose:



All perform brilliantly but the D10 and SP40 are better choices if you’re moving around outdoors, especially in gnarly conditions. They are more waterproof, shine further, their neutral white beams reflect less off mist and dust, and their headstraps won’t let go, no matter what.

But for everything else the B34 really shines! The floody white light of the COB emitters makes it the best of the three for close-up work, while the red lights, proximity sensor and choice of batteries offer interesting possibilities for travelling, camping and emergencies. You can even use it as a versatile pocket torch – MacGyver would love it!

If a nice discount on the standard price would tick even more of your boxes, please drop me a line at mark@torchguy.com so I can tell you how.
