Petzl’s rechargeable CORE battery

This info comes directly from the company.

The new rechargeable CORE battery is designed for the TIKKA2 – ZIPKA2 line of headlamps. This battery is easily inserted into the headlamp in a few seconds in the place of the three LR03/AAA batteries. It offers an advantage over standard batteries for frequent or intensive headlamp use. It is more economical to use – it pays for itself after four sets of alkaline batteries. The Lithium Ion Polymer technology guarantees a lifetime that is equivalent to 900 regular batteries. The CORE battery makes an efficient contribution to limiting toxic waste in the environment.

Info on the website doesn’t make it clear where they are made: I assume Malaysia (they have ‘production sites’ in France and Malaysia). I could not find info on working conditions at these facilities.

The company says it seeks to “take social and environmental responsibility into account” in its operations.
