When the sun sets but the grill is still cooking. When you pop the hood of the car to see what’s broken. When you are reaching for something that fell under the couch. When you help your buddy get food stuck in their molars. Not just useful on camping trips, a headlamp is useful in everyday life, especially during an emergency. Providing illumination while keeping your hands free to deal with the task, the Petzl e+LITE headlamp is always there for you.
Powered by two lithium CR2032 batteries (included), the Petzl e+LITE has five different lighting modes. For regular use, the white light illuminates 20 feet (6m) at 15 lumens for 12 hours. When a boost is needed, the white light illuminates 32 feet (10m) at 50 lumens for 9 hours. This is a great headlamp to use while camping or when out for a night run.
The red light mode shines at 2 lumens for 15 hours. The dimmer red light is suitable for reading or finding your way around the campsite without disturbing your friends who are fast asleep.
In the event of an emergency, the headlamp has strobe modes in both white and red light visible from a distance of 330 feet (100m) and last for 95 hours and 70 hours respectively. The elastic headband adjustment clip doubles as a whistle to allow you to signal to search and rescue teams.
The body of the lamp articulates on a ball joint allowing the user to precisely direct the light where needed. This makes it a great headlamp to use when making intricate repairs or reading.
Weighing just 0.9 oz (26g) the Petzl e+LITE is ultra-light, very compact and can be stored with batteries for 10 years. Keep one in your backpack, the glove compartment or an emergency survival kit. Be ready.
