|PB 2W Blaze is a Stylish and Lightweight Headlight that DEVOURS Batteries|
The down side of this is that the Blaze simply eats batteries unmercifully. Though I've only had it for a couple of months and only turn it on rarely, it's on its second set.
Needless to say, you'd NOT want to use the Blaze daily unless you were using rechargeable batteries. Still, I've hit on a solution that works for a backup light. First, I took it off the bracket and keep it in a pocket of my trunk bag. That eliminates the temptation to "play" with it on occasion. The current normal configuration is shown in the photo below. Just a naked bracket. Riding around in a bag pocket, however, exposed the light to the possibility of accidentally getting turned on and running the batteries down. Removing the batteries didn't seem real good either since then they get cruddy, or lost, or simply rattle around. But, in the photo at the very bottom, I DID hit upon an excellent solution that is lightweight, compact, free, and provides the title to this post all at the same time. Simply prevent electrical contact within the light and put it back together with the batteries inside. Should the light ever be needed, remove and install. Voila! Thanks, Mr P.
