Oddly enough, I prepared by using a new headlamp to read in bed before nodding off (the stationary lights in the bedroom cast a very uncomfortable glare). I am getting familiar with my new zabralight 600 and its ways. I will be glad on some future dark and stormy night when its use and handling will be second nature.

Fortunately, I won't have to change the battery in this dude, just recharge it - a much better technique.....

The best stuff to use when the going gets tight are items with which you are familiar and that you know will function properly.
