Petzl has a new headlamp that pushes the bar, using out of this world technology.
The Pezl Nao Headlamp adjusts it’s two LEDs automatically, allowing you to have a longer battery life, all due to the reflective lighting.
If your cycling at night, the Nao will project a high powered beam that will shine afar. If your in your backyard with minimal lighting, the Nao will adjust to a low powered yet wide beam.
So what is reflective lighting? There are two types of headlamps in the market now known as declining mode and constant mode. Declining mode could have you with minimal lighting when you need the most, while constant mode only runs for a limited amount of time. Reflective lighting will take the best of both headlamps available; strength and lifespan of light.
For adjusting and comfort on your head, Petzl uses a Zephyr dual headband. With a few simple clicks you can adjust the headlamp.
Powering the lamp is done with a lithium-ion battery, which you can recharge by USB cable. If you forgot to charge the battery and your out on the road, you can add an AAA battery (will not omit the same amount of power, but will do).
Petzl will release the Nao headlamp in July 2012 for $175.
