New at this show is the Quad. This unit is a 3 AAA, multiple LED headlamp similar in concept to the Petzl Tikka line but with more sophisticated electronics - current regulation, higher output LED’s and a low battery indicator. The four super bright Nichia 5 mm LED’s are more energy efficient than the single 1 watt LED of the EOS. They also cast a broader light more suitable for area lighting and camp chores than the pencil beam of the Eos. The Quad also costs less than the Eos.
