Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only works with Petzl "hybrid" headlamps I purchased a new Core just a couple days ago (my old one broke). On the website it claims this battery is compatible with all the headlamps Petzl makes, but the truth is that they have to be of the Hybrid variety. I ended up just buying a new Tikka Hybrid headlamp at my local gear store rather than dealing with a return, but this is an inconvenience to say the least. Hope REI reads this and updates the product info on the website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a cool product! Petzl says these will last approximately 900 AAA batteries which is what sold me. I usually take an extra battery that I use to charge my phone which I can also use to recharge this as well; now I no longer have to carry extra AAA batteries when I backpack. Thanks for making such a cool, useful product.

How well does the Accu Core battery do in the cold?

Asked by: CanoeDeaner
As the temperature drops, all batteries are negatively affected by the cold. That said, this lithium-ion battery will perform better than traditional alkaline batteries.

What would the battery life be compared to 3 AAA? I use regular AAA batteries right now. Would the rechargeable pack last as long or longer?

Asked by: Nathan
Compared to standard alkaline batteries, the Accu Core battery provides longer life between recharge cycles. AAA lithium batteries will last slightly longer than the Accu Core.

Is the output voltage regulated, for constant light output, or unregulated? Previous standalone batteries allowed the output yield settings to be programmed before field use. No more? (I do not mean Bluetooth programmable.)

Asked by: delnerdo
The output voltage is regulated (or consistent) for brightness and to avoid the slow dimming that occurs with a draining alkaline battery. There isn't a way to set the output ahead of time, and the consistent brightness will vary among Petzl headlamp models.

About compatibility with the Tikka XP & XP 2, if this replaces 3 AAA batteries, why wouldn't it fit? If there are ridges that hold the batteries, since these are older (but awesome headlamps) could a user just grind down the ridges? What exactly is issue?

Asked by: NWRanger
​The Accu Core battery is not compatible with the XP and XP 2 headlamps, we do not recommend grinding down the receiver for the batteries in the headlamps.
