Why is it important for your running light to be rechargeable?

 

The biggest role of a running lighting tool is to ensure your safety and provide you with an enhanced awareness. If you are a professional running enthusiast, you are no stranger to the term running light, which is primarily used to illuminate your surroundings – helping you to avoid dangerous situations when you exercise in the early morning darkness or at night.

 

That’s not to say however, that running lights are strictly for runner, so don’t skip this article purely because you’re not a fan of a jog. The original design of the, as we know it, “running light”, was created to be used as a convenient, portable, and large-scale lighting product. As such, it has a very wide range of applications that go far beyond what you may initially expect from such a model. Let’s dive into them, shall we?

Different types of running lights

Clip-on Running Lights

This variation of a night running light comes with a unique attachment device, one that is small enough to easily clip onto your belt, chest strap, or even the back of your hat. What’s more, it’s actually so lightweight that you won’t even notice it's there when you wear it – a characteristic that comes in handy should you wish to take your dog out for a walk, and clip it onto the back of your dog’s collar or leash for added brightness.

The biggest difference between the two running lights listed above, is the applicable entrainment types. One is a magnetic solution, while the other is a clamp force that manually attaches the night light source to the support of your choice. They can however, both be tightly attached or connected to any item of place, and the running light with the magnetic suction function can also be attached to any metal surface for fixed use – providing users with a hands-free maintenance solution.

 

The clip-on running light is suitable for both nighttime or early morning running, and home repairs or improvement work. It is also the best nightlight option for walking the dog, as the firm clipping force will stay attached to even the most lively of dogs. This, in addition to a strong brightness reach, will allow you to easily track your pooch should they wish to run off into the distance and explore. Simply follow the trail of light, and Bob’s your uncle. Another benefit of this feature when out walking your dog is that passersby and vehicles will be able to clearly see your pet, ensuring they keep their distance and keep your dog out of harm's way.

   

Head-Mounted Running Light (Headlamp)

Headlights are currently the most popular type of night light used by runners, and with good reason. High-quality headlights will provide an ultra wide-angle lighting range, allowing users to focus on the road under their feet with ease.
