User Review: Petzl Zipka Plus 2
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $45
This is my go-to headlamp. The battery lasts longer than expected. Add the Core battery and you can have a rechargeable system.
- Zip cord attachment
- Strobe mode
While this isn't as bright as my bicycle specific lights it is a perfect companion for camping. The beam is diffuse and doesn't have a super bright focal spot which is nice for most conditions. I have added the core battery pack so I just keep it recharged and it should last for any camping trip under 1 week long.
It does have a red light setting that is nice when trying not to shine others in their eyes. It works well in the cold and have used xc skiing and sledding in the winter. I don't really like the strobe mode, it seems too much like you're going to have a party and not enough like you need help.
