Tikka headlamp by Petzl
You don’t actually need an ultra-bright light when ascending Kilimanjaro’s summit at night. That’s why I (and many of the mountain’s expert guides) prefer the Petzl Tikka. Compact and lightweight (only 86g), the Tikka augments its three-mode white light with a red light, which preserves your night vision and won’t blind other hikers. It also accepts AAA batteries and a brand-specific USB-rechargeable battery—handy if someone brings along a solar charger. It even has a glow-in-the-dark face, so you can easily find it in your tent at night.
