2. Is the energy source appropriate for my frequency of use?

  • regular batteries are best for occasional use, but their cost ends up being greater over time
  • integrated rechargeable batteries are designed for more regular or intensive use They are more practical: the headlamp is always ready to use. They free the user from any battery management issues. These headlamps end up being more economical over time, and more ecological.
