Yes it says "emergency light but its so much more. I have used this as my primary light backpacking and it is truly amazing for its size. It gives you more than enough light to hike or just around camp at night. I always carry a second set of batteries but it must have lasted at least a good 10 hours so far on the first. Its so small a light that its hard to put your trust in it as your only light but so far it has not given me any reason to doubt it. Plus I have been backpacking with others so if this light fails its not the only light source. Yes, more light is always nice, you just have to decide where you want to carry the extra weight. One note, I see there is a new version with a kind of string looking head band. I have not used this and do not know how well it works. I have the version with the slightly wider headband.
