I'm looking for a simple headlamp from the REI sale and was looking at something like the Petzl Tikkina or Tikka. Can anyone say anything about the CRI, or if the emitter is a common one that I can change, such as to a Nichia?
Pretty easy to damage the light when trying to change out an l.e.d. in these lighter plastic lights. Better to go with a cheap aluminum light online that is likely easy to do an emitter swap like Sofirn (probably won’t have to change l.e.d. as they have high c.r.i. options). You can also go to Home Depot and get a Milwaukee headlight which will have decent warm white tint and probably 80+ c.r.i.. Milwaukee lights do pretty good for c.r.i. as much of their customer base is electricians whose lives depend on correctly identifying colors of wires to avoid electrocution.
