I am very fond of my ZL H501. It has a high setting of 96 lumens and a lowest of 0.4 lumens. The lowest is bright enough to enable reading in dark. And 96 lumens is more than enough outside lighting up some 20 meters ahead and it is a flood without hotspots.

My favorite headlamp for preparedness is the Fenix HL50. Itís bright enough, runs long enough, isnít terribly expensive at $50 from the Big River, and will run on either a single CR123A or AA battery.

Thanks. The Zebralight does sound very nice. I'll have to think about whether I want something that exceeds my needs by far.

One of the nice developments is the general high quality of several brands of lights -Black Diamond, Petzl, and Fenix all market very fine lights, both head lamps and hand helds, which will serve adequately - not quite up to ZL standards, but also less costly.

Another head lamp I have been using lately, very impressive is something from Australia called the Knog Quokka, USP rechageable, seems to work quite well, and weighs lsss than 2 oz, with a max output of around 100 lumens. I find it is an excellent addition to my survival items. AFAIK, it is available in the US only from REI - 25 bucks.

Ear plugs if your neighbor has a loud generator.
