The Petzl Actik Core head torch is compact with exceptional endurance and easy operation. Two beam patterns (wide or mixed) and different light modes make this head torch suitable for outdoor activities such as mountaineering, running or backpacking. With the three light modes (5-100-350 lumens) you decide how much light you need. The elastic headband is adjustable so that everyone can wear the lamp comfortably. The advantage of the Petzl Actik is the reflective headband and the integrated SOS whistle. Handy for when it's foggy or your battery has run out.
The Actik is IPX4 waterproof and therefore resistant to wet weather conditions. This doesn't mean you can use it underwater. But the lamp continues to function perfectly during a rain or snow shower or an hour of sweating. In addition, the lamp can be tilted in several positions and can therefore also be used as a reading lamp in the dark. Petzl offers a 5-year warranty on this headlight for manufacturing or material defects.
The mixed beam has a broad base with a focused focus. This makes this light beam suitable for both near and moving lighting. The white light is the main colour and therefore has the most functions. The red light has two modes: fixed and flashing mode. Depending on the situation, you can adjust it with just one push of the power button. Briefly pressing this button activates and continues the various lighting modes. The lamp starts with the least bright position and you can build this up yourself to the brightest position. The biggest advantage is that in the dark you don't immediately get a bright light in your eyes when you switch on the lamp. The lamp is switched off after the light levels have been reached. If you keep the power button pressed briefly, the red light will be activated.
Petzl's Actik head torch is strong enough to illuminate the surrounding area by up to 99 metres. Depending on the position, the lamp has a burning time of between 2 and 160 hours. If you choose the lowest setting of 5 lumens, the Actik Core will burn for an extremely long time and you make maximum use of the battery power. If you opt for maximum illumination, the head torch gives 350 lumens with a burning time of up to 60 hours.

The Petzl Actik Core runs on three AAA batteries (not included) but is also compatible with the Petzl CORE rechargeable battery (included). The Petzl CORE is a rechargeable Ion battery that can be placed in the headlight to replace the 3 AAA batteries. This turns your head torch into a rechargeable version. The battery is easily recharged with the supplied USB cable. No more battery changes! Petzl guarantees a lifetime equal to 900 ordinary AAA batteries.
