User Review: Petzl NAO Headlamp
Source: received it as a personal gift
This headlamp stands out from all others with its brightness, real-time power adjustment, and great battery life. I've used this fishing, camping, hiking, climbing, and even for fixing my car. It is my go-to headlamp that makes all my friends jealous.
- Long battery life
- Higher price
I've owned several headlamps over the last 10 years, and it has been interesting to see them gradually improve. However, after extensively using the new Petzl Nao headlamp over the last 8 months, I'm completely amazed at how drastically they've improved the headlamp experience.
This is very easy to recharge via USB, but the charge itself last very long due to the variable, real-time lighting change, which goes from about 7 lumens to 355 lumens in an instant. Not only is this the brightest headlamp I've used, but I've actually never had any issues with running out of power on a trip. The battery lasts very well.
I actually haven't done any customization online for the programming options it has, since it has performed well for me out of the box. However, I can certainly imagine some situations where this can be valuable.
The price is much higher than I've paid for a headlamp in the past, but after seeing this headlamp perform, I will have a tough time to go to anything else.
