5.0 out of 5 stars-On the market for a new headtorch and I’ve always been a fan of Petzl units for over a decade. My tikka had packed in so bought what appears to be the new version the Actik. The brightness and span of the beam are much improved and battery life is good. It’s able to maintain beam strength for quite a few hours.
The Actik range can take a proprietary rechargeable battery however I prefer to use standard AAA batteries as they are used in multiple devices I use while camping.

4.0 out of 5 stars-Beware! I was bought this model as a present, and it’s very good. As is normal these days it’s recharged using a phone charger.
Having bought this one, at an apparently good price, I find it arrives with just an ordinary battery. So NOT the bargain it seemed.

5.0 out of 5 stars-I’ve used pretzel head torches for years. Never been let down. Only replaced the last one because the battery leaked. This one is really good. Very far beam and great low power mode.
