Future od energy source for headlight

The price should be extremely high, but if they allow it for civil sector it has to be much lower.

Imagine 60 hour of light with 3 W LED!

Good point. How much does a full carbide generator weigh, anyway? Probably not more than half that, I'd guess.

It's kinda weird. The density makes it *seem* heavy. But the density would make it physically smaller, which is good in any tight passage!

The Pezl Ariane weight is 400 g + 400 g of carbide + 200 g of water. Probably 6 hours of light comparable to 3 W LED. No too bad for the fuell cell.
