We have been trying repeatedly to open up the battery compartment, but no luck. We have tried several different tiny screwdrivers and even went out and got one of those eyeglass repair kits with the tiny tools. No way to open it and insert batteries! Too bad, because my 6 year old was really excited about having her own headlamp for camping.

Switch makes the difference compared to same design without switch. I give them to friends and before I give it to them I slide a small slotted screwdriver into the tiny key chain, spread the ring wide enough to slip the flashlight onto it and work it onto the light. I also work the switch back and forth to get it working smoother for my friends. I have read some of the reviews and many people are challenged to affix the little ring onto the light, I say; use mechanical advantage.

This is a nice rugged water tight headlamp for the price. A little heavy on the forehead. The interchangeable lens covers are interesting, however there is a holder for one, one can be on the headlamp for use but there is nowhere to store the third lens so I feel it will be hard to keep track of because it is just a little piece of molded plastic (easy to lose).

I have not used these light in pure outdoor darkness, i.e. outside of city influences. However, based on the comments from soldiers at the Forward Operating Bases and other comments, as well as other internet research, it was a no brainer to order four. One for each vehicle, one for personal carry, including my wife. After getting these lights and having store credit from a clothing return, I ordered two more and I am still considering ordering more. In fact, based on what I paid, I could order 500 of these lights and make a small fortune resealing them. Other than my personal lack of testing along the coat, in the rain. around camp and away from artificial light, they are a steal.

The Princeton Tec Amp 4 (note this is a 5) is a superior light. At 100 lumens, it'll illuminate like a lantern with a more focused beam. The Amp 5 is almost as good (almost imperceptible difference). It has 65 lumens. The price of the Amp 5 is almost a 1/3 lower, clearly the better value. I am very satisfied with my purchase of the Amp 5.
