I currently own a PETZL TACTIKKA + RGB 2019 which offers the possibility of making red, green and blue (and of course white) light.

It's a good lamp but the white light is the first light to turn on when the lamp is turned on and I don't find it very practical when I want to turn it on in an environment where I have to be discreet.

I would like to know if there is the same type of lamp but which offers, when switching on, the colors and lastly the color white.

  • I don't know if this is your exact model, but the Petzl website for TACTIKKA® +RGB has a Technical notice download which in turn says: "If the lamp is turned off in color mode, it re-lights in the selected color." – Weather Vane Aug 8 '20 at 14:45
  • ...if so you can prepare the lamp before entering the sensitive area. – Weather Vane Aug 8 '20 at 18:51
  • I have a Coleman headlamp, only red or several brightness levels of white - that turns on red first. – Darren Aug 8 '20 at 22:29

I own a Black Diamond Spot 325 - it doesn't have RGB capacity, but it does have red/white and the switch between them is a simple button push that cycles between 2 white modes (spot and spread) and 1 red. The headlamp "remembers" which of the settings you last used and re-starts in that setting. I don't know if it will remember this setting after taking out the batteries, but I suspect not.
