Are you a trail runnner? Then we have what will be your nighttime guide, the Petzl Reactik Plus headlamp. The programmable light source comes with a good range of output options. The technology in this headlamp is at a high level. The headlamp is a single strap that splits up to 2 at the back of the head. Depending upon the head size, one can adjust the headlamp with the buckles provided. The buckles buckle up easily, and this prevents slippage during use. The headlamp is about 115 grams; due to this, one will not feel the burden in the head during the activities.
The strap offers comfort and sweat absorption. With the 300 lumens of power, the beam reaches a maximum distance of about:
The headlamp has 2 control buttons, and it has 2 setting options with 3 varied modes. There is a red-light mode, too, with reactive mode and constant mode.
By continuously pressing the side button and the top button, the headlamp powers off.
The defining features available in the headlamp are immense and noticeable.
There are 5 predefined profiles offered in the headlamp. They are:
Each profile has varied lighting levels. The user can create their profiles based on need.
The Live Mode option serves well with the Bluetooth connectivity. The features available with this Live Mode are:
Another highlighting feature is the emergency light signal. This is useful when there is no phone communication or any other forms of communication. At this time, an alert is sent with a programmed brief message. The message turns into the Morse code light signal from the headlamp.
The MyPetzl app shows the percentage of battery life. Depending upon the battery life, the brightness of the light beam adjusts. For instance, consider the situation where the headlamp needs to last 10 hours. The lamp itself adjusts the brightness depending upon the battery life for the desired duration.
Considering the battery, there is no need to carry the batteries as the headlamp operates on lithium-ion batteries. A micro USB helps to charge the headlamp and the battery life extends from 3 hours to 30 hours. Within 4 hours, the battery of the headlamp is fully charged. The battery life depends upon the profile selected, mode, and the light setting. In the worst case of prolonged usage of the headlamp, normal AAA batteries serve the request. The battery life is indicated through the connected app or a LED light at the head lamp’s side. This blinks several times to denote the low battery. After this, the low power lighting exists for 45 minutes, and the headlamp shuts off automatically without any warnings. The USB plugin is on top of the lamp. A rubber tab covers it to prevent dust, dirt, and moisture.
One is surely benefited from a compact, intelligently connected, and intelligent solution incorporated in a headlamp and its usage. The Pretzl Reactik Plus is promisingly comfortable, versatile, and durable. In comparison with the Reactik headlamp, the Reactik Plus is connected via Bluetooth, which is a nice feature to have. Brighten your way with a high end headlamp and enjoy your run without any hiccups.
