Equipped with a high-output rechargeable battery, the Petzl Actik Core is a compact, versatile performance headlamp. Offering a maximum brightness of 350 Lumens and a maximum burn time of 100 hours, it is ready-made for backcountry adventure.
A user-friendly electronic push-button allows you to choose between Wide or Focused beam patterns and toggle between Maximum power, Standard (which balances power/battery life), and a Max Autonomy setting that prioritizes battery life over brightness.
At the Maximum Power setting, the headlamp produces up to 350 Lumens of illumination and casts a beam up to 361 feet! The lowest, most economical setting increases burn time to 100 hours. There is also a red LED mode that allows users to maintain night vision even after the light is turned off.
The headlamp is powered by the Petzl Accu Core Rechargeable Battery. This Lithium-Ion 1250 mAh battery is an economical, sustainable alternative to standard batteries. It offers up to 300 recharges via an integrated USB port. The total weight of the headlamp with the battery is 2.82 ounces.
A hinge on the housing of the lamp enables you to aim the beam where you need it most. A comfortable, adjustable headband with 2-part construction at the back of the head offers maximum support for aerobic activities.
Water-resistant and suitable for all-weather use, the Petzl Actik Core headlamp is available in your choice of colors options.

Real Customer Reviews

Dislikes: None so far
- Great light
Likes: Easy to stow
Easy to charge
Dislikes: Could produce a little more light
- Finally! A rechargeable headlamp worth the wait.
Likes: I've been using Black Diamond headlamps for quite some time, and have been waiting for them to release a decent rechargeable headlamp for years now. The Revolt was . . . meh. Petzl stepped up and delivered a headlamp that meets just about all of my most important requirements. It has a crazy max brightness (350 lumens), good burn time on the low setting, good range of 95 meters. Weighs under 3 oz. It is very versatile, using standard AAA batteries as well as its own rechargeable batteries. It will charge with my battery bank if necessary during camping or hiking.
Dislikes: It doesn't have an adjustable dimmer - just 3 settings (5, 100, 350 lumens). It also lacks a lockout feature to prevent the headlamp from turning on in your bag / backpack. These minor issues are acceptable for the benefits this headlamp provides!
- Very bright at 350 lumens setting
Likes: Paired with a recharger (such as Goal Zero Flip), there is no need to carry extra batteries. But, it is also convenient to have the ability to use 3 AAA if you need.
Dislikes: The product seems a little less sturdy than my previous Petzl headlamps. We will see how it holds up.
