I have the petzl elite and it is in the...
I have the petzl elite and it is in the lock position (one notch past the "off" position). Does anyone know how to get it out of the lock position? I am NOT asking about opening the battery. I just can't figure out how to move the lever to turn on the light once its in "lock" mode. Thank you!
Are you pushing it in to try to rotate the switch? To disengage the lock, you have to get your finger or thumbnail under the part of the switch lever that angles up and lift slightly while you move out of the locked position. Give it a try. You shouldn't have any problems. Hope that helped.
I had the same problem once with mine but eventually I was able to "force" it back into place. It felt like I was going to break it but then it snapped back into place. Id try what Phil said before resorting to brute force.
how do i unlock the petzl elite?
how do i unlock the petzl elite?
Where is the button i push?
I'm not quite sure what you mean. If you are trying to unlock the battery cover to replace it, that is a twist off cover. You just stick headband tightener in the notch and twist.
Has anyone ever figured out how to get the petzl elite out of the lock position? This is not a question about unlocking the battery cover. The light has an "off' and a "lock" position and once in lock its difficult to figure out how to get it out of lock position.
What is the best battery type to use on...
What is the best battery type to use on this light? I wore mine out by accidentally leaving it on and I wanted to find the best for the size. I know they are stock CR2032 but aren't there other compatible ones?
I think they make some that are not Lithium that are that size. but i think that your stuck. I know they are expensive but they pay off.
Can't beat it for what it is. 27 grams of EMERGENCY light. that's it.
I LOVE IT!
If you do ANYTHING outdoors you should have one of these! This thing is not just for emergencies, it will light up the whole campsite. Fits in a case the size of a pack of gum which means it's perfect for backpacking. I'm so happy I bought this, and you will be too!

need to get over the 50 mark for free shipping? this baby is gold
this is my main headlamp. and it has served me well. Backcountry is awesome offering it for 20% off. My advice grab one you'll love it. My other advice is when you order it get the spare batteries on ebay it was like 8 bucks for 25 of them when I made my purchase long ago and I still haven't made a dent in my collection. I give them to friends on b-days and I'm always sincerely thanked. Its a great lamp plus you wont feel like a coal miner any more. I wish there was an extra star for this item it truly deserves one!
what else can I say
This is the perfect headlamp for any backpacker. Why carry the extra weight when you can have a headlamp with 4 different settings. I love the red because it doesnt ruin your night vision after they have adjusted to the dark. The protective case is also nice and very light. In my opinion it is the best on the market if you are a light-weight backpacker.
This is the perfectbackup light for almost anything. I have several....one as a backup to my TACTIKKA for military use, one in my truck for the random emergency (works well for changing tires in the middle of the night), and one for my backpack. It's so light, there's no reason not to carry it.
I use the Petzl e+LITE Emergency Headlamp as backup in case something happens to my MYO 3 Headlamp. A lot of advantages make Petzl e+LITE the best travelling companion. I like the firm and reliable carry case. Nice lighting and variety of modes. But not enough for running and quick descending.
the test of time
this is the only light i used on my '08 appalachian trail thru-hike. it was perfect for the occasional late-push to reach camp and for all my nightly chores. i used it sparingly and never changed the battery in five months! i'll be using it for my pct thru-hike this summer.
Great for emergencies,just do not forget that it is in your pack it is so small.
Good as a reading light when you are camping!
It might come in handy if your bigger light blows up! Would not use if you were climbing a peak for hours on end!
So small and light I often forget it's in my pack. Love this thing when I'm finishing a climb at dusk and have to scramble down class 4 terrain to the car at dusk/dark. Light, bright, in a word, tight.
Not the brightest light but the weight and size are brilliant and the intensity of the light was fine for doing everything needed around camp. Great value for money
Hey I love this light, but does anyone...
Hey I love this light, but does anyone know of a more powerful headlamp that has red, blue and green (or something similar) LEDs as well as a primary white LED? I hate changing filters and constantly loose them. I just want to be able to flick switch or rotate a dial and change the light color.
The Brunton RL4 headlamp has white and red LED lights. Check that one out.http://www.backcountry.com/store/BRU0141/Brunton-RL4-Headlamp.html
I agree with the last reiew, this is my primary light. Plenty bright for night hiking short distances, great versatility. Brightness, color, and strobe control in an ultralight package. My only complaint would be the control lever can be a bit tricky when it's on your head, but i still love it. My favorite feature is the veritile mounting options and range of movement. One strange thing; on the petzl website it says that there is an integrated whistle, but mine does not have it.
Any idea how long the battery life will...
Any idea how long the battery life will last? And where would you get new batteries?
Batteries will last ~45 hours, depending on the brightness settings you use. I've been able to find batteries in my local grocery store for $3 to $4. Just about anywhere that sells watch batteries and/or hearing aid batteries will carry them.
ebay has the best battery deals
Simply amazing!!! This little guy is awesome. Why in the world this would be a "backup" I have no idea. This is the only headlamp I carry and the only one I've needed. It hasn't failed me once and has tons of great features, and all for under an ounce and <$30. Can't beat it with a stick.
When Weight Matters
I've been seeing a lot of photos from the Vovlo Ocean Race with crews sporting this light. The round the world race on carbon fiber 70ft sailboats is a place where ever gram matters.
Not for running
I love this lightweight headlamp for everything but trail running. It's just not quite bright enough for moving quickly down the trail. Having said that, I always carry it as a backup to my Tikka XP, just in case.
Has anyone had problems with this unit...
Has anyone had problems with this unit discharging accidentally. I may have had a faulty unit.
no i have not had this happen or ever heard of it happening.
