This headlamp is powered by a USB rechargeable lithium polymer battery, as well as 3 AAA alkaline or lithium batteries as a back-up. It boasts a durable polymer construction, is water resistant, has been tested to resist 2m drop impacts, and has a weight of 4.03 oz. with the elastic head strap and lithium battery. It comes in Yellow and Black, and it is suitable for a number of different applications, including emergency medical services, outdoor, industrial, and much more. See below for additional details.
