Petzl has introduced this spring the Tikka Plus 2 to its line of headlamps. The Tikka Plus 2 is designed as an all-purpose headlamp and is marketed for use for the outdoors and around the home.

The Petzl Tikka Plus 2 is advertised as lighting up to 35 meters with its 50 lumens white LED. Petzl boasts a 140 hour burn time when the headlamp is set to the economic mode. It comes with a basic elastic headband, but it is compatible with the Petzl ADAPT system, so the Tikka Plus 2 can have multiple mounting options (e.g. bicycle handle bars, helmet, belt, etc.).

The Tikka Plus 2's versatility is its best attribute. It is not waterproof, so using it for conditions that will expose it to excessive water is not advisable. It is suited more for dry land uses such as camping and backpacking along with assisting around the house in low lit situations when your hands needs to be free.

Petzl has packed several features that make the Tikka Plus 2 an option for backcountry adventures. In addition to its powerful white LED, there is also a red LED to help preserve your night vision. This is handy for those pitch dark camp set-ups. The white and red LED can be set to strobe, so it can be used as a safety signal.

Petzl LogoIf you are looking for an all-purpose headlamp, the Petzl Tikka Plus 2 makes a lot of sense. It performed admirably especially for hiking and other dry land activities. Petzl lists the Tikka 2 at $39.95 and it carries a 3-year warranty.
