From the manufacturer
Here at Black Diamond it's all about climbing, skiing and being in the mountains. We share the same experiences in rock, ice and snow as you do. These experiences are what push us to make the best possible equipment for climbers and skiers around the globe.
We are a company with employees who use the products - that's what makes us different.
The allround Headlamp
For midweek dawn patrols, all-night approaches, or just big climbing objectives that push beyond daylight. With a new, compact body, the Spot325 has been redesigned with a lower profile for better balance. We’ve also updated the user interface by adding a second switch for easy lens mode selection. In addition, the updated optical efficiency not only provides brighter light with more peak intensity, but also saves battery life that you can now track with a six-setting, three-LED battery metre.
- The touch-sensitive housing makes it possible to switch between the various settings with a single touch
- Settings include full power for high beam and close range, dimming function, flashing mode, night vision mode (red) and lock mode
- Compact, slim case with three AAA batteries (included)
The new version of the spot has a new lens that makes the beam even brighter. The new version also has 25 lumens more than its predecessor. Like its predecessor, the Spot 325 also has a memory mode. The Spot 325 always remembers the setting with which it was switched off. This can be useful at night, for example, when the lamp needs to switch on directly in red light mode.

Yesterday, I did a timed test on both lights with new batteries. On the second-to-maximum setting (single large white LED), both headlamps lost significant brightness after 6 hours, were about one-third brightness at 12 hours, and were totally dead at 20 hours. That's a far cry from the publicized 65 hour claim and is unacceptable for the kind of use we need.
When we contacted Black Diamond, we received an apology and were told that burn times on both the Spot325 and Storm 375 (as printed on both the outside of their packages and contained in the instruction manuals) were indeed wrong. The website ratings have been updated to the correct values (which corresponded to my own real-world testing of our two Spot325 headlamps) but the units that already are on the market have not. To Black Diamond’s credit, we were offered a refund on our headlamps.
Bottom line: nice form factor, good features, but low burn times despite packaging that erroneously states otherwise.
1) This one has a large button but it's just an illusion. The active area of the button is tiny. I have to use my fingernail to turn it on. The actual push point must be microscopic. The button does not have a good tactile feel to it at all.
2) The second, smaller button is for controlling the mode. It is too small and there is no bump to differentiate it from anything else. There is plenty of room on the top of this unit for two substantial raised buttons that could be easily felt and differentiated.
3) The dimming function seems wonky. When I attempt to adjust the brightness, about half the time it will work as expected and start where it left off, while the rest of the time it will start with max brightness and go from there. The problem with that is now I am blinded by the brightness and my eyes adjust to the max light and now I can't tell anymore where I wanted the brightness to be. People don't want max brightness on an object that is only 12 inches away. So the brightness adjustment is basically useless to me.
4) The mechanism that holds the angle of the light is too insubstantial. I often end up accidentally losing it when I grab the light to put it on my head or put it away. Then I have to reset it again. This does not happen with other more substantial lights.
