Black Diamond Icon in the Dark

I'd stick with my old BD Icon headlamp. The on / off button on the new design cycles between the low LED / High LED every single time the light is turned off. This is way too annoying for me! Maybe if you turn your light on and leave it on for hours, then who cares. Not me; in my job I am constantly turning it off and on. The old Icon model stayed in whatever mode you left it in. This is a HORRIBLE design. Come on Black Diamond, you are better than this! I will buy one again if they ever fix the setting. In the meantime, forget it, I am using my old Icon headlamp.

With the Icon Polar, can you still wear the batteries on the actual headlamp or do they have to be in a pocket? What I mean is, is it possible to have it like the regular black diamond Icon?
