Core battery arrived safely and is on charge as I type.
It would appear all is tickadeboo with the Tikka XP2.
Nothing wrong with using the three AAA batteries but if you have a dynamo hub, might as well utilise it as much as possible to get your moneys worth.

Thanks for the heads-up. I might consider one.

If anyone is in the market, Catch of Day, have Black Diamond Spot headlamps going for $29.95 + postage. Sounds like a good price but I haven't researched it so buyer beware.

I have one of these - excellent headlamp. Very bright spot-light, lower but stil bright dual-LED, red LED, all of them with a graduated switching, and a lock for storage in the bag.
Riding bikes in traffic - what seems dangerous is usually safe; what seems safe is often more dangerous.

I have found it sees me through a few nights reading but quite unimpressed with the charge of the Core battery as I expected a lot longer. :?
Its nowhere near as long as decent aaa batteries. :shock:
No matter as it seems to charge quickly enough from my laptops usb. :roll:
I'm just hoping its not long to charge via my E-werks cach battery usb setup.
