Awesome...or Awful Depending on Use

If this headlight is to be used by children around the house or on a day trip then it is great. I like that my younger children can not take out the batteries because there is a screw securing the lid. However, if you are on a multiday hiking trip or camping trip, then it could be a real pain to have to carry a small screw driver (it came with one) just to change out the batteries. Since my younger kids often forget to turn off their light or leave it on while they fall asleep at night changing the batteries is something I am likely to have to do on our outings. If I did get such a great deal from STP and return shipping is not free, I am going to keep it, but I prefer the princeton tec fuel headlamp. It is a little more expensive, but also has a latch that the kids can not open and the adjustment tab on the band serves as the "tool" to pop open the latch.
