I cannot give you any honest answer to this, as I keep mine in case of blackouts, sorry, er.... um..... power outages (a the PC brigade will have me state!). I can use it for hand free work, not rely upon having a large gas/hurricane lamp which would not be allowed inside my rented flat (Landlord rules about lamps & stoves for cooking). I have however, put in the longer life lithium batteries which you can purchase the generic (own) brand from Maplins (they got a very good write up review in Which!). But I would guestimate roughly 40 to 60 hours continious usage. BTW in a genuine emergency, where oil or gas lamps would be ruled out for various reasons. You CAN turn the lamp inside out to the straps, then either get a 5 gallon or 5 litre frosted plastic jerrycan, filled with water. using the headbands carefully mount the lamp (lens towards the j/can wall), turn it on & you have yourself a budget minded, safely improvised table lamp in a power cut! Sorry, I could not be of help, but I hope this final suggestion can help ANYONE who reads this answer, in an emergency power outage.
Is the strap large enough to fit over a horse riding hat? Required for daughter when turning out pony these dark evenings. 19 Nov 2014
I have just tried it on my helmet and yes the strap is large enough
No its not heavy
I see the headband is adjustable but can I make it small enough for a typical 5 year old's head ? 24 Nov 2014
Get 5-yr-old a sensibly adjusted baseball cap, so s/he feels comfortable. Then adjust the headtorch. Other hats are available ;)
Not in my experience, but obviously I cannot offer a universal guarantee.
