/ Petzl Tikkina2
Thank you....just wondering about people's experiences with brightness, distance and battery life?????
I've seen one on but not used one for any long period of time, it's bright enough to see by when the batteries are fresh and has a big battery life. Bare in mind, though, that by the time the batteries are half depleted the light will be next to useless.
As mentioned by someone else the construction quality is as good as the rest of the Petzl stuff. You'll be fine walking the dog with fresh batteries in or reading in bed. Obviously there are other brnads but if I was you I'd stump up the extra for at least the Tikka 2 or better still the Tikka plus 2 which has a single high power LED and should last you well.
We have three of these, probably the earlier version, and they are great as general camping lights. OK for walking back to the car from the crag type of thing. I bought them in a sale because they cost more or less the price of the batteries that were included (and because the female components of my family are world class at losing things).
However, they would be inadequate for serious use, which includes descending from mountain summits, ski touring at night, foggy whiteout conditions in the dark, caving, night orienteering, and so on.
