Gloworm Headlamps


Gloworm is a New Zealand company making high-end LED lights. The more light you have the faster you can ski since you have more time to react to whats coming at you. With Gloworm's Alpha and X2 headlamps you can get all the light you need at the press of a button.

Questions & Reviews

Question from John
Hey folks
I lost the charger that goes with this. Do you sell just the charger at all or have any tips on where I might be able to purchase just the charger?
Answer from Emmett I
Hi John,

You can find them on our Gloworm Accessories page. Look for the
"Li-Ion Smart Charger" from the drop down menu.

Hi Spindogg, I just weighed an Alpha with battery and head strap at 265g on our scale.

Teague H (used product regularly)
I've had a Glow worm lamp for 5 years now. A couple Grand Traverses, Lasal traverse, Timpanogos to Olympus, many other midnight ski adventure starts, pouring rain, and navigating dark rock climbs. This light keeps working, is super light and bright enough to navigate in the black night. I love this light and it has been my ticket to many of my biggest adventures of my life. Not kidding. Thanks Eric.

I can run it primarily on low, with many times bumping up to high (1.5hrs on high within 7hrs total) for 7 hrs.
Two batteries are nice but one will last till the sun comes up unless you are on high for hours and start at sunset. But that is just silly.

Does this come with a helmet mount?
Reply from Nate
Hi Ronald, these headlamps do come with a helmet mount. There is an additional accessory head strap that makes for a nice, easy way to move your Gloworm from helmet to helmet or to wear directly on your head.
