Petzl Recharge Core Battery compatibility

Does the Petzl Core Battery fit the Petzl TIKKA XP2?  

Is there a difference between a Petzl TIKKA XPS and a Petzl Tikka XP@ Core?

The Petzl Tikka XP@ Core description indicates that the headlamp can use either rechargeable battery or 3AAA batteries.

"The Petzl Tikka XP 2 Core headlamp features a powerful beam with 3 brightness levels and a rechargeable battery that lets you customize the headlamp performance for nearly any activity.

This may have the answer:  https://www.petzl.com/US/en/Sport/Is-the-CORE-rechargeable-battery-compatible-with-my-Petzl-headlamp...

I would be inclined to go with three quality AAA rechargeables, which would give more flexibility than a unique proprietary unit...

Thanks for the question!

We reached out to Petzl with your question and here is what they said:

'The current Core battery is not compatible with Tikka XP 2 headlamp. The Core battery is compatible with the following headlamps that are 2017 models and newer:

TIKKID, TIKKINA, TIKKA, ZIPKA, ACTIK, ACTIK CORE, TACTIKKA, TACTIKKA+, TACTIKKA +RGB, IKO CORE, AND IKO headlamps.'

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
