Pros. Even with the flaws described below this is an very good headlight. It is so good that from time to time I look at mine and think "I sure hope they keep making them." I don't know of any other headlamp that compares. VERY bright light on high. Excellent light pattern. Can use for close work, or to see longer range. Wonderful that they use 3 AA batteries instead of 3 AAA batteries like most other headlamps (batteries last probably 3 times longer than AAAs, even when powering this much brighter LED light, and AA batteries cost the same as AAA). Well balanced with the light in front and batteries behind your head. Great headband (when new, see Cons below). Well made, except for the flaws in the cons below. Ray-O-Vac honors its lifetime warranty. Cons. Here's hoping Ray-O-Vac product development guys see this along with everyone else. The latches on the battery compartment door are weak. They break in time even when you take care to not break them. And if you drop the headlamp they can break in an instant. I sent some in on the lifetime warranty and Ray-O-Vac sent me new ones. When the same thing happened with the replacements I figured out a velcro repair which has worked out great. Better however would be for Ray-O-Vac to beef up the battery door latches so they can be used as designed with no repairs needed. After a year or so of much use the elastic in the headband fails (gets longer until no more stretch). I am looking for better elastic to make my own that will last longer, but if I can't find it, I will send them back to get new headbands on the lifetime warranty. Maybe Ray-O-Vac can find elastic with a better elastomer (EPDM?)? One side of the battery compartment needs to be a few thousandths of an inch bigger. My rechargeable batteries have to be rotated to just the right spot or they don't fit in the battery compartment on one side. Every one of five headlamps has had this same problem. You can work around it, but why have to? I bought my first lights at Costco. They didn't have the following problem. Only the replacement lights have it. They turn on in your pocket. I am pretty sure it is caused by static electricity and not physically pushing the on switch. If you don't notice they are on, dead batteries when you need them. I used to solve this by opening the battery compartment door when in my pocket, so no power. But the one flaw with my velco battery door repair is I need light to see to fasten the velcro, so I can't cut off the power now (just have to keep an eye on them when in my pocket). Overall, despite the flaws, very good headlamps. And if these flaws were fixed, I think they would be the very best headlamps on the market. Shouldn't be hard to fix these problems if anyone is listening at Ray-O-Vac!

Very Bright

This is a great flashlight. The battery life stated is optimistic is is about half that time before it dims drastically.

Predecessor model 10 years old and still working

By wrh1053

from Houston ares

Comments about Ray-o-vac Alkaline "AAA" Batteries - 4 Pack:

I bought for an active hurricane season. Haven't needed to change bulbs yet, 2 or three battery changes. If only one light works then its a warning to change the batteries soon. I typically run it dead then change the batteries.

How to fix the plastic part

By Olivier

from Paris, France

Comments about Ray-o-vac Alkaline "AAA" Batteries - 4 Pack:

Hey guys, from France, sorry for my english. I broke the plastic part while changing the batteries. I thought my headlamp (which I like very much) was ready for garbage. I fixed it by using a piece of inner tube from a bike to keep the different parts together... And my lamp works perfectly. But truthfully, you need to improve this part. Except this, I recommand

One lamp out

By MAG1

from Omaha, NE, United States

Comments about Ray-o-vac Alkaline "AAA" Batteries - 4 Pack:

I liked it the first time, then weeks later I tried to use it and only one lamp is working, I swapped bulbs and both are good on the single side, so the bulbs is not out, I did get a new bulb anyway and made no difference, would love for it too work again!

rayovac twin tube latern

By virginia

from St. Petersburg, FL, United States

Comments about Ray-o-vac Alkaline "AAA" Batteries - 4 Pack:

I bought years ago, live in Florida, only really used when necessary, worked great ! Have been using more lately for a reading lamp, I have replaced batteries, just recently only 1 tube will light up, so i replaced both bulbs, so disappointed that bulbs havent fixed problem, only 1 side will light up, enjoyed it so much when both bulbs would work at same time, it was great to use when it worked properly. I would really like to get a replacement, it does state it has a lifetime warranty.

Great until i changed batteries for hurricane Matt

By jon g

from Aventura Florida

Comments about Ray-o-vac Alkaline "AAA" Batteries - 4 Pack:

Great until i changed batteries for hurricane Matthew... once I changed the batteries it didnt go on so I found that the bottom wasnt tight enough so the more i tightened the more the light stayed on...I tightened it more and heard a snap and now i cant tighten it down at all and it wont work at all.

Drains batteries quickly!

By Bruce

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ray-o-vac Alkaline "AAA" Batteries - 4 Pack:

I used this lantern one time for about 2 hours on a camping trip with new batteries. It worked great and was very bright. However, the second time I tried to use it, one bulb would barely come on at the medium setting, and neither light would come on at the high setting. I tried new batteries, and both bulbs work. This will be very expensive to operate if the 8 D batteries it requires only last a couple of hours each time.

Lights No working Properly

By jlbrody

from Sunrise, FL, United States

Comments about Ray-o-vac Alkaline "AAA" Batteries - 4 Pack:

We bought this for Hurricanes. And went to use it for a camping trip and the only setting that works is the one bulb setting but when you place on the two blub setting it does not work. We switch the blubs around and the blubs are fine batteries are brand new. We are upset that this is not working properly.
