Show Description

The Pixa 3 is a professional-grade headlamp that's waterproof and built to stand up to rough handling. Three output modes include flood light for tasks close at hand, a focused beam ideal for precision work, and a powerful spot beam that gives you the ability to see things farther away. Regulated output ensures it won’t dim through long work days, and a rotating head locks out the switch and protects the lens as it kicks around in your toolbox.

  • Plate mounts on a Petzl Vertex helmet for your days off.
  • Lighting head is removable to place for direct lighting in tight spaces.
  • Glove-friendly switch.
  • Provides both a spot and a flood beam without any adjustment.
  • Switches to reserve mode (10 lumen for 13 hours) when batteries are almost drained, and signals by blinking.
  • IP 67 waterproof rating (immersible to 1 meter for 30 minutes, no maintenance required after immersion).
  • Resistant to falls up to 2 metres and crushing forces up to 80kg.
  • Takes 2 AA/LR06 batteries (included). Compatible with alkaline, rechargeable Ni-MH and lithium batteries.
