When used with its halogen bulb, this lamp could put a spot of light on the dark side of the moon. Unfortunately, it consumes more power than a weekend in Vegas. I use the alkaline battery adapter (3 AA's), and have to use new batteries for every trip. One set of AA's MIGHT last for an entire weeklong backpacking trip, but I'd take an extra set. It also has the frustrating tendency to turn itself on inside the pack. I do like wearing the batteries around my neck rather than on my head, but this annoys many users.
