Gear 7: Petzl e+Lite

Nice wee torch from Petzl. Collected from sorting office today after ordering it from Bob and Rose at Backpacking Light.

The plastic ball-socket allows the LED light to be rotated dependant on how the lamp is secured to kit or worn with head-strap. Stated time of 35-45hours, distance not as far as my Tikka, but smaller and lighter using watch-batteries. Lamp settings are dim white, bright white, white strobe, red strobe and bright red. I'm looking forward to trying it on my next trip out.

Small and fascinating. It'll be interesting to see who it works!

Glad you like it!

I keep fiddling with mine and showing it to all my friends so I'm sure the batteries will be flat by the time I get to use it in anger ;-)

All the best,

Bob and Rose
