The Petzl Actik Core is a great all round headtorch designed for active use. It gives a 600 lumen light with a mixed beam pattern, red light mode and has an elasticated and adjustable headstrap.

The multibeam lamp is designed to give a range of lighting so whether you need proximity, movement or distance lighting the Actik Core has got you covered. For power the Actik comes with Petzl's Core rechargeable battery, which provides more power and a brighter beam than AAA batteries that the torch is also compatible with. Being able to mix a rechargeable power pack and regular AAA batteries gives you plenty of flexibility shout your adventure last longer than anticipated.

It has 3 white light modes giving up to 100hrs burn time and a maximum 450 lumens, there are also 2 red lighting modes, which are proximity and strobe lighting. Cycling between the modes is easily done with single button operation.

Great piece of kit, simple to use, 3 brightness settings on white light, one constant and one blinking mode on red light, USB rechargeable, one button (yay! ), suitable for a myriad of uses, (camping/cycling/blackouts/taking bins out, etc. ), well made, quality materials, funky colours (mine's red/white), what's not to like?Have yet to determine the capacity of the battery to maintain power after multiple charges, the one possible weak link here, but for the moment, 5/5.

Light, bright & enough charge from one 4hr plug-in to do two decent walks/runs. Facewest got it out super quick. Great service.

Cycling Lands End to JoG later in the year and using bar bags for the first time. So needed 'in case of need' front light. After a good bit of research, concluded that a headlamp strapped to the bar bag was far more convenient than spending on cycle specific brackets and additional cycle lights. More research and Petzl came out tops for our requirements and the 'Actik Core' specifically so - really easy and intuitive to use, reliability of rechargeable CORE battery, flexibility of being able to use AAA batteries too as standby, certainty of constant level of light output using the rechargeable battery, 350 lumens available for cycling where there is no other lighting whatsoever, light and compact so easy to carry, convenience of simply being able to strap it to the bar bag and forget about it. Trialled the Petzl - worked exactly as hoped; able to cycle over unlit fields without reducing speed. Bonus benefit of being able to use it for a 'zillion' other non-cycling things as well. So bought another one too. Happy bunny. Impressed with service, pricing and approach of facewest too - well doneand thanks.

I found it hard doing some work in my flat one evening as the ceiling light wasn't good enough, I ordered a cheap head torch of amazon which don't get me wrong is bright but needs charging too often and only has 2 light settings, either the full 150 lumens or next setting to dim. So after some research and asking questions in shops I was advised of the Petzl Actik Core as I wanted that blue/white light as easier to use for a long time without aching your eyes when doing diy or in my garden in the eve with my wood burner and with more than 2 light settings and can last longer between charges. It's great, as with 3 light settings and 350 lumens it illuminates my whole garden so very happy with the product. Thank you facewest for getting it to me quickly.

Nice and light with a good beam. Mid setting is good for walking and running with good definition on the ground so easy to see undulations etc if you're running. Full beam is extremely powerful and more than I ever need. The red light is surprisingly usable if you want to be stealthy and not moving fast. My only gripes - the on/off button isn't the easiest to operate and I sometimes temporarily blind myself with the light reflecting off my hand when I operate it, and the ratchet on the up/down adjustment could be finer. Sometimes I feel I want to angle it in between two settings.
