Petzl Rechargeable Headlamps

I already owned the IKO AKTIK Core headlamp. Big fan of the rechargeable battery that is interchangeable with AAA's. The IKO did not disappoint

Excellent light!

Light, super bright, with the 3 settings, and comfortable. This is like no other light I’ve used, don’t even know it’s on my head.

Great Lamp

Perfect lamp for a minimalist packer. 3 settings, comfortable, light weight, packable, BRIGHT on high, and best of all you can carry 3 AAAs to replace the rechargeable battery if you don’t want to carry a battery pack or solar set up! Great headlamp!

Very Surprised

I bought this light to have as a lightweight back-up for my pack. Well it really surprised me
At just how light and comfortable it actually is. The abstract look of the light had me skeptical, however this light feels like it’s not even there. This would be a top pick for any use.
