Petzl Zipka Plus 2 Headlamp

Offering even more versatility than the Zipka 2 head lamp model, the Petzl Zipka Plus 2 has been completely reengineered for this season. 25% more compact than the Tikka Plus 2 headlamp, the Zipka Plus 2 has an adjustable, retractable cord that allows for the perfect fit and unbeatable packability. Built with 1 high output white LED and 1 red LED, the Zipka Plus 2 switches between maximum, economic, and flashing modes with just the click of a simple electronic push-button switch. With a longer light range than the Zipka 2, the Zipka Plus 2 delivers a maximum beam distance of 35 meters and has a maximum burn time of 140 hours. Switch from the white to red LED for improved night vision or for extra visibility and safety in urban environments when riding your bike home late from work. With a redesigned hinged battery compartment that opens wide, there is no more fumbling to close your headlamp like on older models. Equipped with battery life indicator, you will know when it is time to put in new set and the Zipka Plus 2 is compatible with lithium batteries. If you are looking for a super small, lightweight, compact, energy efficient headlamp that doesn't compromise visibility and shines bright, the Petzl Zipka Plus 2 will deliver.

Excellent battery life and ultralight
This headlamp has held up for a good 60 miles of backpacking so far this year. Battery life is excellent and retractable wire makes it clutter free. One of the best headlamps out there.

Excellent for me
The older I get, the more I understand the mindset of the ultralight campers. The less weight I carry, the less weight I carry! To that end, this is about as light a light as I could find that still used AAA batteries. There are lighter and smaller headlamps, but on such a critical item, I wanted to have the candlepower to reach out and even run with as well as the battery life to last 3-7 nights. This headlamp does the trick with enough modes that are intuitively accessed. As much of a gear hound as I am, I won't be looking to pass this down to one of my kids so I can get a new gadget.

Best Headlamp!
I bought this headlamp with little expectation, but it turned out to be one of the most useful lights I have. Great for when you need to be hands free.

Love this headlamp!
We live in Costa Rica and use headlamps/flashlights everyday. It is mandatory in the jungle and important to have a light that is of good quality and handy. We have many friends that own the Zipka and they all say it is the perfect headlamp and have it handy in their pockets while we are running around searching for our old style head lamp. Well, we finally broke down and bought two Zipka's. We have been using them for only two weeks now, but we already don't know what we ever did without them. Love them!

Good headlamp
Bought this Zipka to try out the zip versus the headband (Tikka). They are very similar, except that the Zipka has a much smaller footprint and you can wear it on your arm or wrist. However, I've noticed that there is no tilt on the Zipka, and that means when you wear it on your forehead, you only have one angle. This is somewhat disappointing since you would not expect removal of functionality from a higher model.
