The rechargeable NAO headlamp adapts its two high power LEDs instantly and automatically to the lighting needs for greater comfort, fewer manual interventions and longer battery life. NAO is the first Petzl headlamp with REACTIVE LIGHTING technology: a sensor measures and analyzes the ambient light. The OS by Petzl software, free for download at, allows the NAO’s potential to be maximized with the option to personalize the headlamp and its performance.

The Petzl Nao has a sensor to detect ambient lighting, allowing it to adapt its beam pattern and the power of its two LEDs instantly and automatically to lighting needs. The NAO headlamp:
- offers adapted, comfortable lighting
- keeps the hands free longer
- increases lighting duration by making optimal use of the energy source
Two lighting modes available:
- continuous mode
Customized lighting with OS by Petzl software allows the user to:
- regulate light intensity and lighting time and distance based on the activity
- register up to 4 activity profiles on the headlamp for direct activation based on your needs
- create up to 5 lighting levels per mode
- create and share personalized profiles
Li-Ion rechargeable battery:
- performs well at low temperatures
- easily rechargeable with the integrated USB connection (compatible with all USB chargers: cell phone, MP3 player, computer, portable energy source, solar panel, car cigarette lighter, etc.)
- with battery charge indicator
- can be replaced, if necessary, with two AAA/LR03 batteries (reduced performance)
Multifunction on/off switch can be locked to avoid accidentally turning it on when stored/transported
Headlamp is stable on the head with the Zephyr adjustable headband, which easily tucks away when transporting the headlamp, and the extra top strap for technical activities
Optional belt kit for NAO (E36R10) allows the rechargeable battery to be moved to the belt to reduce the weight worn on the head, or to keep it warm in winter
