Adieu, GuyMar, 15/12/2009 - 10:47 da Petzl
We just learned yesterday that Guy Lacelle was killed in an avalanche during the Bozeman Ice Festival. This tragic news strikes at the heart of the Petzl family, adding to a overwhelmingly sad 2009. Guy has long been a close friend to all of us at Petzl, both in North America and Europe.
HubbleLun, 24/08/2009 - 10:18 da Petzl
Only 8c+ but still the big one
Hubble was first climbed by Ben Moon at the cliff of Raventor in the Peak. The world’s first F8c+, one small set of moves for man, but one giant leap for mankind. The route is pure power, it’s a boulder problem. It would be a font 8B boulder problem if it had a flat grassy landing. Seven hand moves, nine if you’re short.
Lithium batteries informationVen, 23/01/2009 - 12:02 da Petzl
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.

MYO headlamps and AA/LR6 rechargeable batteriesMer, 17/09/2008 - 11:43 da Petzl
Due to advances in the performance characteristics of AA/LR6 rechargeable batteries (especially their higher output during discharge), they can in certain cases of intensive use, cause quality and safety problems with MYO-series headlamps. When the headlamp is used with AA/LR6 rechargeable batteries, if a short-circuit appears in the cable connecting the battery case to the lamp, the cable can spark, melt, or catch fire. This poses a burn hazard to the user.
