This headlamp adapts to a variety of uses: on your head, around your neck, on your wrist, or even as a lantern. The only limit is your imagination! It packs so small that you can take this headlamp anywhere.
The Petzl Iko Core leads the market in technology, innovation, and comfort. This lightweight headlamp is built with a thin, adjustable panel of LED lights on the front, an ultralight but sufficiently rigid Petzl AIRFIT silicone band to hold it in place around the head, and a battery pack on the back to balance the weight.
Petzl saw all the kids (and woke old folks) walking around with their reusable shopping bags, straws, and coffee cups, and they decided to join the party. With the Petzl CORE headlamp battery, simply plug your batteries into a charger the night before a big adventure and voilà, start the next day knowing that your headlamp won't quit before you make it back to the car. No longer will avid pre-dawn or post-sunset skiers have to buy 75-packs of AAA batteries from Costco at the start of each season. No longer do you have to frantically dig in 8 feet of snow after dropping all three of your spare batteries because your headlamp went dark 45 minutes after sunset. No longer do you have to try and remember if the batteries in the left cup holder or the right cup holder were the ones with a partial charge left. Today is the day that your headlamp batteries go green, with the Petzl CORE rechargeable headlamp batteries.

My current reigning headlamp is the Petzl Tikka R+. I love the reactive lighting, the relatively high lumens, and the rechargeable battery that pairs beautifully with my Goal Zero solar panel. My backup is an old but good Black Diamond Storm from back when 100 lumens was mind-blowing. (Is the pace of increasing headlamp output freaking anyone else out)
My most recently reviewed headlamp for Backpackers.com, the ZebraLight H52w, set the bar high with 280 lumens, a fully waterproof metal casing, and single-battery operation. All that in my quiver, and there were still several moments on my travels when the e+LITE surprised me.
For me, the Tikka RXP weighs less than half the weight of my BD icon (8 ounces) and even throws off more lumens,. I just cut my headlamp weight by more than 50%.and I can recharge it using the battery I carry anyway.
We would absolutely recommend this headlamp to prospective buyers. It is well built and versatile, and we love having the option of choosing the power source. We struggled to find any cons apart from lacking a higher water resistance rating which we wouldn't need for sky watching anyway.
The Petzl Actik Core 450 headlamp is a rechargeable, compact and multibeam headlamp with a dedicated red light mode. Petzl first started making headlamps in 2000, and since then, has modified their design to fit an array of uses (we are still actually using one we've had for about 15 years). This headlamp does almost everything you could ask for which is why it features in our guide to the best headlamps you can buy.
The Petzl Actik Core 450 comes with the hybrid concept, meaning you can run it either with the CORE rechargeable battery or three regular AAA/LR03 batteries. It comes with the CORE battery, but you can also purchase one as a standalone product (opens in new tab) to use with any other Petzl Hybrid headlamps. One advantage of using the CORE battery over regular batteries is that the brightness will stay the same over its entire burn time. In contrast, the brightness will decrease with standard batteries as they lose their charge. The burn time is considerably less than regular batteries, but of course, the bonus is that you can recharge it, and thanks to the hybrid design, you can choose which energy source best meets your requirements.
Of course, it's not just a headlamp you'll need when stargazing, you'll probably want to pair it with one of the best stargazing tents, best telescopes, or best binoculars. Or, if you're a photographer, check out our guide to the best cameras for astrophotography.
We have spent the past couple of weeks using the Actik Core headlamp for various activities, including late-night dog walking, sky watching, festival camping and using during wildlife rehabilitation activities. Here's what we think.
The Petzl Actik Core 450 is a nice-looking headlamp. A thick, comfortable black and red strap with reflective strips to make you more visible to others, and a 'traditional looking' lamp and battery pack on the front. The plastic housing of the LEDs is robust enough but might mark or crack if dropped on a hard surface with a lot of force but it is perfectly adequate for regular bumps and knocks.
Once you've adjusted the elasticated strap to the correct size using the easy-to-use slider, the headlamp sits comfortably and snugly (but not too tight), so it doesn't bounce around, which is essential for runners or those participating in extreme sports rather than sky-watching. It can be completely separated from the headlamp, but this is a little tricky and unnecessary. The wicking fabric can be sponge washed to keep it smelling and looking fresh.
This headlamp will suit most general use requirements, not just sky watchers. It uses a single button operation that is obvious to the touch and responsive, so it can easily be operated when wearing gloves on those cold nights. The battery compartment is easy to open too, either to change the batteries or to plug it into a power bank using a micro-USB charger.
You can turn on the red lamp without having to turn the white LEDs on by long pressing the button; this is excellent news for astronomers and astrophotographers as this virtually eliminates the risk of ruining your night vision. With some other headlamp models, you have to turn the white lamp on and cycle through to red which isn't desirable if night vision preservation is important.
You can't use the headlamp while it is charging, but we're being picky here. As with most electronic devices, you'd charge them when going to sleep anyway. The CORE battery has a helpful LED indicator where red means it's charging and green means the battery is full. A full charge takes approximately three hours.
The headlamp can be 'locked' by pressing and holding the button down for four seconds before putting it into your pocket or kit bag. To unlock it, do the same again; long press until it comes on. This prevents it from accidentally turning on and therefore stops unnecessary battery drain that could lead to you being caught in the dark.
We think you should buy this headlamp. Unless you need it to be fully waterproof, we can't see any reasons to not recommend this product. It's comfortable, practical and versatile and comes at a reasonable cost, especially given you know you are buying from a trusted brand and it will last for years. It comes with a five-year lamp warranty, and the CORE battery has a two-year (or 300 charging cycle) warranty for even better peace of mind. We think it's worth every cent.
Say you need a fully waterproof headlamp, an alternative you may wish to consider is the Knog Bilby 400 (opens in new tab). It also offers different light brightnesses and has a rechargeable battery and a comfortable head strap. It is a similar price to the Petzl Actik Core 450 and, like Petzl, Knog has held an excellent reputation as a lighting specialist since 2002.
Its biggest shortcoming is that, unlike some headlamps (including many Black Diamond models), the Actik Core does not have a lockout switch to prevent it from accidentally turning on. But with its low-profile power button, that never happened to me.
Powerful, intuitive to use, and versatile, the Petzl Actik Core is a top-performing, rechargeable headlamp for backpackers, dayhikers, climbers, trail runners, bike commuters, and other outdoor recreationists.
Can this headlamp be recharged using either a solar panel or a battery pack. I travel overseas for extended treks, 2, 3 up to 6 or 7 weeks where electricity is often not available for much or all of the trek. Thus I rely on a solar charger for longer trips and a battery pack for shorter trips.
