I like the 4 x "AA" battery pack on the BACK - because 4 x "AA" stores a whole lot of juice and this keeps the weight off your forehead, balanced. Very BRIGHT, long burning. I agree with the review that said "old school" design. I personally use rechargeable NiMH Sony Eneloop AA's even though they do not shine as bright for as long as Alkaline would. They last long enough, and they don't lose their charge sitting on the shelf. I don't like the recent trend in products with multiple "AAA" batteries because AAA store 3x less each but generally cost just as much as "AA". For the price, this is a good head lamp.
