Brightness or burn time: a question of balance

For a given quantity of energy, increasing the brightness automatically decreases battery life, and vice versa.

Example: to obtain 100 lumens of brightness for 50 hours, the equivalent of 75 AAA batteries would be required.

 

 

Petzl's solution: 3 lighting technologies

 

 

 

 
STANDARD LIGHTING
The ideal compromise between power and burn time

 

Technology:
the headlamp supplies energy "directly" to the light source

Advantages:
• The headlamp has a very long burn time
• The headlamp lights very intensely for the first minutes, and then decreases gradually over time
• The rated brightness is the maximum light output, measured when the lamp is first turned on

CONSTANT LIGHTING
Comfortable lighting that does not decrease over time

 

Technology:
The headlamp has an integrated electronic regulation system.

Advantages:
• Constant brightness Brightness remains constant over a predetermined time.
• BOOST mode: allows occasional access to maximum brightness.
• Reserve lighting When the constant lighting phase ends, reserve lighting offers a weaker light output over several dozen hours, allowing the activity to be completed.

REACTIVE LIGHTING 
Powerful, self-adjusting lighting

 

Technology:
A light sensor adapts the beam pattern and brightness of the headlamp instantly and automatically to the need.

Advantages:
• Optimized control of brightness and burn time
• Adapted, comfortable lighting:
- proximity lighting
- lighting for movement
- lighting for distance vision
• Manual operation is minimized
• Works with rechargeable battery
• Personalize your headlamp: OS by Petzl software
