I strongly take issue with previous review. My dad bought the Princeton Tec LED light precisely because it had the tilting head and different light settings. Well, after a while of light use, it is nonfunctional. My Petzl Tikka, on the other hand, has worked flawlessly for 3 years on many, many camping trips. Simplicity is best. For any activity it is just perfect. The lack of a big battery box is very nice. It is reliable, cheap, and very bright (with fresh batteries). Highly recommend.
