Limitations on use of AA/LR6 and AAA/LR03 Lithium batteries with headlamps.

This information does not apply to the e+Lite which was designed to work with CR2032 Lithium batteries.

Lithium batteries are lighter and give longer burn times at low temperature than traditional Alkaline batteries.

Due to recent advances in the performance characteristics of Lithium batteries (especially their higher output during discharge), they can cause the lamp to overheat and possibly damage the LEDs.
 

You can use AA/LR6 Lithium batteries with the following lamps

  • MYO range: MYOBELT SB5 / MYO / MYOLITE.

  • DUO range: DUO LED 14.

  • Others: SAXO / MICRO / ZOOM Halogène.

  • Discontinued headlamps: MYO 5, DUO LED 8.

Attention: the use of Lithium batteries reduces the lifespan of incandescent bulbs.
 

Do not use Lithium batteries with the following lamps.

  • TIKKA / ZIPKA range: TIKKINA / TIKKA / ZIPKA / TACTIKKA / TIKKA PLUS / ZIPKA PLUS / TACTIKKA PLUS / TIKKA XP / TACTIKKA XP / TIKKA XP ATEX / TIKKA XP HAZLOC.

  • MYO range: MYOLITE 3 / MYO 3 noir / MYO XP.

  • DUO range: DUO LED 5.

  • SAXO AQUA.

  • Discontinued headlamps: MYOBELT 3, DUO LED 3.

Please contact directly your local distributor to get the place to buy the spare bulb.

If one bulb blows on the 4 LED headlamp do the rest stay illuminated? I prefer the single bulb model but am worried the bulb may blow when i'm travelling somewhere unable to buy a spare...

Bulb of the headlamp

Hello,
The bulb shouldn't break and if anything happen, yes the other Led should keep lightening.
The alternative is to use a double sources of light such as the Myolite 3 E32


No lithiums

Are you referring to Lithium primaries like Energizer Ultimates or Lithium Ion batteries?
