    I use one of the old Petzl Tikkas, not sure which one but it takes AAA. I use Eneloop rechargeables in it. I keep a spare set in my pack and make sure the ones in the torch are freshly charged and have never had a problem in low temperatures.

    The Petzl Tikka is not USB but rather has the option to insert a battery (Petzl Core) that is recharged via USB. It takes 3x AAA batteries like most other ones. I have the green tikka pictured a few posts back with the red light option and love it. I use it for running at night in the countryside and it's fine for that. Doesn't project much but gives a nice flood of light for the first 20ft or so.
