by fromsolid built with rechargable battery=win Solid built with adjustable light. I use the red beam for night reading. Love the battery, i plug it up in my truck to ensure charge when i need it most.not the lightest or brightest, but more than sufficient for general work and camping needs.

by fromJust what I needed The Tikka 2 is well thought out, versatile headlamp. Add a solar panel to the system to make it a self sustaining package. I wish a European plug was included with the system.

by fromhighly recommended I just got back from a 3 nighter in the victorian alpine region and could not be happier. The lamp gave ample light for camp activities as well as things like collecting water and firewood a few hundred metres from camp. The adjustable light beam is solid and the three lighting options work very well. Will definitely be buying Petzel in the future
