What a great little headlamp. It’s my go-to backup light that’s always in my daypack.

These are a great little head lamp for on track or hiking on long summer days where you're unlikely to use your head torch much. They're light weight, very adjustable with the ball joint and the switch can be set to turn on with either the white or red LED (although I don't think it locks from red). The batteries also last for ages and a light to carry a spare set.

My sons each recieved one of these a few years back as a stocking stuffer. They came in a little plastic capsule. One of them ended up becoming part of my "crash pack" a tiny survival kit the size of an Army first aid kit that I carry with me any time I am flying anywhere while deployed. When I am home that kit is in my 72-hour bag. I wouldn't choose it as a primary camping light, but if you are of the "two is one and one is none" type it makes an excellent back up or emergency light. Perfect for a glovebox too. If you have a roadside issue, you want your hands free.

For night hiking, there are trade-offs between a headlamp and a flashlight.  For some time now, my go-to headlamp has been a Fenix Hl23, with 150 lumens, at 3.4 oz.  From now on, I think I'll be carrying the e+ at 1.3 oz. (with spare batteries) and the Foursevens Mini Mk II, at 550 max lumens (with their high discharge CR123a) and 1.4 oz.  More light, less weight, more flexibility.

Does anyone know when this newer version came out?  I have a Petzl e+, which I notice from a trail note I used in 2013.  Liked it a lot, but it was a bit weak for hiking off trail.  If this new, more powerful version has come out since then, mine would have to be the older version, in which case I'd happily buy the new one.

This is the newest version of the e+Lite, which was released two months ago.

Dynamite!  Even in its earlier version, this was a great headlamp.  One advantage of a lighter lamp is that it's much more comfortable to wear.  I measured the weight of a backup pair of batteries in a small Ziploc at .3 oz., so that's 18 to 24 hours of useful light for 1.3 oz.

I can't imagine the battery life is terribly long on these. Can we get those specifications, Massdrop? It's really difficult to drop on a light like this without that info.

12 hrs of light would probably be just fine for a good 5 day backpacking trip... but it's always good to bring extra batteries AND luckily those little button batteries don't weight much at all!

Yes! 12 hours is plenty. I'm looking for an "emergency headlamp" for when I'm out on long trail runs. I prefer these batteries and their weight as opposed to AAAs.
