/ Petzl core battery add on - worth it?
I was wondering if it is worth the £30 invertment, or just sticking with normal batteries. Seems like a nice idea - not throwing out half used batteries all the time.
I'm not sure about the finiancial costs/benifits but I've had one for about a year now and I love it. I use it for scout camps so often have a way of charging itsince it charges from usb. I also really like that you can change the profiles from your computer and set it too regulated lighting rather than declining like you get with normal batteries
but forgetting that its just brilliant!
Thanks for the replies - I think I might put one on my christmas list!
I do however still prefer rxp, programme it in reverse as starting with low light finishing on high is a better way. Dim doesn't seem bright once you've strobed through high power. If see see what I mean.you cant reverse sett8ngs on xp2. Or at least I can't work out how to

I have the XX AAA ones for my petzl tikka XP2. I did consider the core, but it is very expensive for a battery, each to their own though.
i bought mine from
Good point about dim settings first - I always wondered why they don't do that by default.
I assume you mean the new tikka rxp and not the myo rxp - which doesn't take the core battery(?)
used one for a couple of years, initially skeptical
they just work
