The Helix Basecamp is the larger, more powerful of the Helix Lantern series.
Helix Basecamp packs the latest LEDs, while the collapsible globe keeps the light soft on your eyes. Folding legs raise the lantern up to ensure it lights up a wide area, while multiple hanging options add versatility. Folding legs and collapsible glove also allow the lantern to pack down to half it’s size while you are en route to your destination. The globe can be removed to swap the diffused glow to a direct spot light.
The power dial controls dimmable white and red LEDs in the same intuitive manner as old-school gas lanterns.
This light is designed for area illumination, and disperses light in a 360 degree pattern to light up a campsite or other area.
Dimmable LEDs provide the precise output needed for a given task, and help conserve battery power for maximum efficiency. Sometimes we use the word dimmability, which isn't exactly a word yet, but we're very fond of it and have faith it will become one.
Lights rated IPX6 have a high level of water resistance; generally they can take quick dunkings, some precipitation and even a strong spray of water. (Although, we've never found lighting products to be all that good at water gun fights.) If water enters the housing of the light, please remove the batteries and dry everything out.
The highest quality LED available. Princeton Tec’s Maxbright LED is extremely bright and efficient. This single LED emits a smooth, powerful, white light useful for a wide range of tasks. Princeton Tec uses collimators or reflectors with the Maxbright LED depending upon the application. Must yell "MAXBRIGHT" when saying term out loud.
Multiple settings on many of our products give you the flexibility to adjust your light’s brightness to illuminate greater distances or to conserve battery power, depending on your needs.
Planning to cover some ground and travel light? Maybe it’s the destination – or maybe it’s all the steps between. Either way, lights in this category will help you find your way (or enjoy right where you are) when the sun goes down. (Especially if something goes bump in the night.)
Sleeping under the stars and getting away from it all. Whether you need some light to bustle around the RV after lights out, set up your nomadic home for the night among the pines, or enjoy some campfire time with friends, family (or yourself), these products will serve you well. (Maybe even in a van down by the river, we don't judge.)
Tree stands, duck blinds, jon boats, bass boats, streamside, dockside, backcountry camps – examples of places that have a tendency to be most productive around dawn or dusk. Check out these products to help you make the most of those hours. Also, if this icon is to scale, that is one big bass.
Men and women protecting and serving in all different ways – these lights strive to be as tough, bright and reliable as the people who count on them.
Light is an integral part of survival – whether you’re headed off the grid or experience a loss of power – having your own source of light at hand helps to keep you safe.
Does your job require work in less than ideal environments? Sometimes you need a little extra light, sometimes you need a primary light – and sometimes, that light needs to not only be bright, but be rated to work safely in hazardous conditions.
