expired Petzl Actik Core Headlamp Black AU $62.95 Red $80.30 | Core Rechargeable Liion Battery AU $25.68 Shipped @ Wiggle.com.au (Ex-UK)


Recently a Snowy's deal was posted for the Petzl Actik Core for $85 shipped - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/356833

Now the Black version of this headlamp is only $62.95 at wiggle.com.au - the red version (which I think looks better) is $80.30 which is still cheaper than anywhere else I can find.

This headlamp includes a Core USB-Rechargeable Li-Ion battery pack (same shape as 3xAAA) and is also compatible with 3xAAA batteries

They also sell the battery pack only for $25.68 which is also the best price I can find.

Includes free shipping (from the UK) if you spend over $80. They've got a range of mostly cycling-related stuff, including some nice looking bike lights in their clearance section. I got this in black and a spare Core, for my wife for Mothers Day (may be eligible for Brownie Points, existing relationship required).

No stock level or expiry specified - tho when I add to cart it says "over 10 available" which I think is all they tell you really on any product.

    For similar money I'd buy the Fenix HL60R, includes 18650, red LEDs and micro USB rechargeable. AU$83.25 with free shipping, I've never had an issue with delivery from Fastech

      Very different lamp! I'm sure a good option, but my wife loves Petzl, probably wouldn't want something that blocky/blokey/bulky, and we're not in the 18650 ecosystem at all yet. And that head-top strap is a bit of a turn off personally! Also the battery has to be in to charge, wheras if you have 2 COREs you can be charging one while using one. Also usability wise, the Petzl brightnesses go off-low-medium-high and red is long-press whereas this goes turbo-red-eco-low-medium-high. I know which sequence I'd prefer in the tent in the middle of the night when the baby starts crying!


      I went from a Nitecore HC30 18650 head torch to a smaller Black Diamond one. I found that for the things I do and places I go, maybe 99% of the time I don't need such a bright light as it affects night vision and annoys others. The smaller torch is much lighter too.


    Good price for this headlamp with CORE but add shipping = $75.94 unless spends >$80.


    Its unclear to me.
    Looking at the linked Wiggle page, I see (under "Top Features") :

    "it comes with three standard batteries, and is also compatible with the CORE rechargeable battery"

    I have currently the Tikka 2XP with core which is an earlier unit and love the tech but my dollars are staying firmly in my pocket until this have been confirmed.


      Your question has been answered - yes, it's included. However what you already have may be the previous version of the CORE which apparently had some "programmable" features. This includes the current version, which is "dumb".
