Princeton Tec Pilot Light

The pilot is a small backup light for headlamps. It comes with a small base that can be attached to the bands of a headlamp, it can also be attached to straps in a backpack. The light is a simple 5mm led powered by two 2016 coin cell batteries, it is very small and produces a decent amount of light.

The pilot has two modes of operation constant-on and flashing, the runtime is 14 hours in constant-on and about 36 hours in flashing mode. The pilot can be useful to change batteries in your headlamp or as an emergency light if your headlamp runs out of batteries or has some failure, it is good to search for things in a backpack or a pocket without removing your headlamp.

The pilot is available in red, green and white and costs $9, you can read more in Princeton Tec website or order it from Lighthound.

I used to carry the white Pilot as my EDC flashlight, on a piece of 1" webbing with split rings on either end. It made for a nice keychain, until I ended up with too many keys.

I highly recommend this light as a nice small unit.

This little light attaches well to the EOS Headlamp. The red light will protect your night vision while reducing light pollution from your location.
