The Tikka + is extremely versatile. It has a range of lighting modes to light close tasks like cooking, and for lighting up the trail ahead when you're moving quickly. An intelligent battery life management system gives you a healthy amount of reserve power when the batteries are getting low. An adaptable powerhouse headlamp that fits in a pocket.
- 3 LEDs (2 white, 1 red) provide spot or proximity lighting. Red light is good for reading without keeping your partner awake, and retains your night vision.
- 6 modes includes a flash setting for the red light. Boost mode gives you an immediate burst of 160-lumen "what's that noise?" light.
- Regulated output means the light level remains steady over the burn time.
- Reserve mode provides 5 lumens for up to 40 hours.
- Red indicator comes on when batteries are almost drained, so you're not left completely in the dark.
- Pivoting head directs light where you need it.
- Compatible with lithium and NiMH rechargeable batteries.
