A necessity for night hiking, camping or reading in your tent, the Petzl Tikka Core headlamp is lightweight and compact enough to fit in a pocket or backpack—and it comes with a rechargeable battery.


  • Easy-to-use, single-button design
  • Phosphorescent reflector makes it easy to find in the dark, and red light mode helps keep you from blinding those around you
  • Reflective headband allows you to remain visible at night
  • Can be tilted up or down, allowing you to illuminate your surroundings while wearing the headlamp on your head or neck
  • Single, wide-beam pattern allows you to comfortably see your immediate surroundings
  • 3 brightness levels, including red lighting, continuous and strobe, to preserve night vision and to signal your location
  • Lock function prevents the headlamp from accidentally turning on and draining the battery when not in use
  • Comes with the Petzl CORE rechargeable battery; also works with 3 AAA batteries (not included)
  • Hybrid concept design is compatible with either the CORE rechargeable battery or 3 AAA batteries (not included) without an adapter
  • With Petzl 50:50 brightness-to-burn-time ratio, it will retain 50% of its original brightness halfway through its burn time
