With the Petzl CORE you can:
  • Reduce your environmental impact
  • Save money when used to replace AAA batteries
  • Have easy charging via universal USB
  • Customized performance with OS by Petzl software

 

The new rechargeable CORE battery is designed for the TIKKA2 - ZIPKA2 line of headlamps. This battery is easily inserted into the headlamp in a few seconds in the place of the three LR03/AAA batteries. It offers an advantage over standard batteries for frequent or intensive headlamp use. It is more economical to use - it pays for itself after four sets of alkaline batteries. The Lithium Ion Polymer technology guarantees a long lifetime. The CORE battery makes an efficient contribution to limiting toxic waste in the environment.

With OS by Petzl software, the CORE battery opens new doors: the OS by Petzl software can simply be installed in your computer and the headlamp connected to it.

It then becomes possible to adjust, in a very intuitive way and with only a few clicks, the battery life of the headlamp or the lighting level (maximum or economic mode) according to your needs.
