The Actik 450 Headlamp by Petzl is the brightest gadget in the gearbox.
Taking centre stage in 450 lumens of brightness, this headlamp is the lead role of high-impact campsite dynamics after sunset. From running up that road to climbing up that cliff, its clean and comfortable lighting spans wide, providing easy, up-close light while kicking along the track.
A phosphorescent reflector has it easy to locate in low light, while red lighting provides that less-intense illumination when kicking about at base camp. This headlamp boasts versatility for every adventure in its HYBRID CONCEPT design, compatible with the separately available CORE rechargeable battery. With three standard batteries included too, it adjusts its performance according to the source of energy.
From up close and personal, to keeping your distance – this headlamp flexes with you, with its mixed flood and focused beam for both proximity and distance vision. Single-button operation and symmetrical headband also allow straightforward adjustment on the go. As light as it is bright, slide safely into your pack or pocket for easy, convenient transport, while a storage pocket enables ultimate lantern transformation.

Birghtness with Core battery1 answer
The Petzl website seems to indicate that this will have a brightness of 600 lumen if you use a Core battery, is that correct? or does it just influence burn time?

Yes that is correct, when you use the CORE Rechargeable Battery with this Headlamp it will increase the max output to 600 lumens. The way the battery communicates with the headlamps will have a difference in output across the range of Petzl headlamps.

Performance difference between standard batteries and Petzl battery?1 answer
It mentions in the post 'adjusts performance' depending on power source. Would this adjust the light output or the time it will run? If so how different would it be?
Jack - Elwood, VIC(8 months ago)
It's the run time, as AAA batteries have different capacities depending on the battery chemistry you choose. The Core Rechargeable battery by Petzl has more mAh than the common or more readily available AAA's, so will run longer.
