The Petzl PIXA 3R head torch is a top-quality, rechargeable head torch. This ATEX head torch has a maximum light output of 90 lumens and a range of 90 metres. The two different LED lights make the Petzl PIXA 3R incredibly practical. One LED is for a wide beam and the other is for a focused beam. They can also be used at the same time.
This makes the head torch highly versatile. The wide beam is ideal for tasks within a close proximity. The combined light beam is perfect for moving around in the dark, because you can see enough up close as well as far away. The highly focused beam is perfect when you need far-reaching illumination.
The dial makes it easy to switch between light modes, even while wearing gloves. The Constant Lighting Technology guarantees that the light intensity doesn't decrease as the battery runs out. As soon as the battery is about to run out, the Petzl PIXA 3R switches to a backup light mode.
