This is a great little bit of technology. I bought two, one for the car and one for inside the house. All sorts of neat features, the tiny LEDs are very bright, the various options for the lighting are handy, and I love the way you can strap it to your head without the big headband rigs of other LED lamps. The white 'bright' setting provides a lot of light. I've worn this while crawling around up in my unlit attic space, and it has provided plenty of light to see by, and is more useful in many ways than a hand held light.
It is also very small, fits easily into a pocket or almost anywhere else, is very tough and durable, extremely light weight - I can barely tell it's there when I'm wearing it - and I love the way you can adjust the angle of the lamp, whether you're wearing it on your head, or have it set on the ground. Does very well as a work light, you can set it flat or attach it to things, and then move it around so that it points exactly where you need the light.
I think this is a great product, very useful and very tough.

This headlamp is perfect for any situation. It's light weight, indestructible & bright. Smaller than the palm of your hand. If your like me and big into cutting weight & saving space this headlamp is perfect.

I have wanted a head lamp for a very long time, so I finally got my hands on this little gem. I was so excited when it arrived that I wore it around the house gloating. It is really light weight and the ultra bright setting is blinding. I love how you can stand it up any flat surface and angle it where you need light. This is a must have for any camping trip or nighttime hike! Also it works great when you turn the lights out on your husband while he is trying to find something in the dark garage.
At first it was a bit tricky figuring out how to get the white light to turn on. If you have trouble, put it in the off position on the white side, then turn it on from there. Works great!
Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the Petzl e+LITE® headlamp operate?
Typical operational times can vary, it is estimated that continuous operation in full white light mode is about 50 hours, and about 70 hours in emergency red light (single red LED) mode. Low light economy white LED mode will also last about 70 hours. These estimates are with fresh batteries.
Is the headlamp waterproof?
Yes, the Petzl e+LITE® head light is water resistant down to one meter depth for up to 30 minutes. It can be used in the rain without worry.
What is Dyneema™ cord?
Dyneema™ is a synthetic fiber rope specially designed to replace wire cable. It's stronger than the same size steel cable, yet is as flexible as rope. With Dyneema™ headlamp cord there's less risk of breakage and it's durable and long-lasting, won't rust and is unaffected by moisture.
Can I leave my headlamp on my vehicle dashboard?
Excessive exposure to high temperatures, such as a vehicle dashboard, can damage the e+LITE® headlamp and/or reduce the life of the batteries. Store in a cool dry place out of the sun.
