Show Description

Designed for professional use, this rechargeable headlamp is waterproof and resists falls, impacts or crushing. Programmable lighting levels can add brightness or save battery power. 3 lighting modes let you perform close-range work, navigate dark worksites, and see problems from a distance, while regulated output ensures it won’t dim through long days.

  • Rotating lighthead locks out the switch and protects the lens.
  • Lighthead can be removed for direct lighting in tight spaces.
  • Plate allows mounting directly to a Petzl Vertex helmet.
  • Glove-friendly switch.
  • 3 programmable modes balance brightness and battery life.
  • 3 light settings: wide beam for close range work, spot for activity and a focused beam for long-range vision.
  • Reserve mode (10 lumens for 1.5 hours) activates when batteries are almost drained, and signals by blinking.
  • IP 67 waterproof rating (submersible to 1 meter for 30 minutes, no maintenance required after immersion).
  • Resistant to falls up to 2 metres and crushing forces up to 80kg.
  • Lithium-ion polymer battery recharges in 3 hours.
  • Included dock charges headlamp directly or battery alone.
