The Lumeo Pro 230° Headlamp is loved by 1000’s of South Africans across the country. Its unique design and amazing features make it perfect for a wide range of nighttime activities and is the reason why Lumeo has gained such popularity in South Africa.
Unfortunately, when people see success, many try to jump on the bandwagon. We have seen this first hand. Many have tried selling cheaper, low quality products that look like a Lumeo Product. Some have even gone as far as to use our name, or close variations of such to deceive their customers into thinking they are receiving the real deal.
This has resulted in many South Africans contacting us to complain about the poor quality of their headlamp, meanwhile it is a poor imitation, not a Lumeo product.
We would hate for you to get caught out, and that is exactly why we have made this article, to show you how to spot a fake Lumeo Pro Headlamp!
What Are The Main Differences?
Being a well known brand in South Africa, we would never want to taint our reputation by selling poor quality products. That is why we have very close relationships with international suppliers and manufacturers. We make sure to source the best quality materials, including the elastic strap, rubber housing, LED strips, circuit boards and most importantly, batteries.
This is not the case with imitations. The goal for them is to create a product that looks the same, while cutting down the production cost as much as possible. You will notice the rubber housing used is thinner and less durable, the light doesn’t shine as brightly, the buttons will feel ‘mushy’ and not clicky and most importantly the battery used is smaller.
The battery is one of the most expensive components on the Lumeo Pro Headlamp, and the easiest cost saver is to cut down on the capacity. In the image, see how an imitation Lumeo Pro Headlamp makes use of a 500 mAh battery as opposed to our 1200 mAh battery.
This will result in less than a third of the battery life, as well as shorter lifetime capacity.
The battery on the Lumeo Pro Headlamp is built in which is why it is so important for a high quality battery to be used.
Is My Headlamp a Lumeo Product?
The easiest way to tell if you have a Lumeo Product is by identifying where you purchased your Headlamp from.
You can only purchase Lumeo Products from our website www.lumeo.co.za and Takealot, here is the original listing
If you have purchased your Lumeo product from any other retailer, it is most likely not our product.
The second way to tell is by having a look at the product itself. Lumeo Products always come branded, if it doesn’t say Lumeo, it's not a Lumeo. Have a look at the pictures below.
