Defective Battery Door

Reviewed by Wyndnwatr from St. Pete, Fla. on Sunday, July 7, 2013
As everyone says, this is a great around the house and light duty headlamp. Simple and inexpensive. Unfortunately, I am on my second Fuel and both battery doors have broken after the second battery change. Nothing a rubber band and duct tape can't fix but that isn't the product I want on a three day kayak trip or backpacking in the wayback. Going on a raft trip in July so I picked up a Black Diamond Storm. Not quite spelunking grade but has a gasket and red map reading light and if you thought the Fuel was bright then you will be wonderfully surprised at the Storm. Buy the Fuel if you want to look for something in your attic or an unlit closet and if cost is a factor but now that I've bought 2, shouldn't I have just ponied up the dough for a quality light in the first place?
