User Review: Petzl Tikkina 2
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $20
Not a bad headlamp for the price.
- low price
- batteries don't deplete while stored
- not super bright
I have one of these headlamps and it is not a bad headlamp. I think people who feel it is not bright enough to hike by are a little too demanding. It’s cheap and well made and puts out a lot of light for only having 2 LEDs.
I have other headlamps that are brighter because they have 3 or 4 LED’s or even a 1 watt or 3 watt LED and of course, they are brighter, but not so much that this one looks bad. It’s good around camp or walking too.
For running or to shine a spotlight on something far away, other lights are better, but then they are more expensive and their batteries will not last as long. This light puts out plenty of light, for example for reading, at even the lower setting.
I also like that the switch has a positive click when turned on, so it shouldn’t suffer from the battery running down while sitting in a drawer like many of the newer lights. I have a couple lights with the infinite dimming feature and I don’t like how I have to store them without batteries if I want the batteries to have any juice when I need to use it.
