The Petzl Actik E099FA01 head torch is compact yet powerful. This black head torch has an output of 350 lumens and exceptional endurance. It's also really easy to use. The two light beams (wide or focused) make the head torch suitable for outdoor activities such as mountaineering, running or backpacking. You can choose between red and white light. Red light is perfect for maintaining your night vision and - even more importantly - many animals don't notice red light.
The Actik E099FA01 meets the IPX4 standard. This means the head torch is splashproof. You can use the torch when it's raining, but you cannot submerge it in water. The torch can handle rain showers, snow, or sweat. The torch can also be tilted into several positions. This is handy when you want to read in the dark.
Petzl Actik E099FA01 light options
What makes this torch so practical is the fact that it offers two light profiles within one torch: one for close by, and one for far away. The choice is yours. The Petzl Actik E099FA01 offers three white light levels and two red LED modes: steady or flashing mode. You can change it with just one push of a button, dependent on the situation. Briefly press the switch to turn the light on and to cycle through the different light modes. The torch starts in the least bright light mode. After going through all the light modes, the torch turns off. If you press the power button for half a second, the red light is activated.
The light from the Actik E099FA01 is strong enough to illuminate a distance of up to 80 metres. If you choose the low mode of 6 lumens, the Actik E099FA01 will burn for an extremely long time. This mode also makes maximum use of the battery's capacity. If you select the highest mode, the head torch will supply you with 350 lumens and a burn time of up to 2 hours.
