I was asked about head torches tonight.
Alpkit have a range of very reasonable units for people who don't think they want to spend a lot/wouldn't use one much, the Gamma is their most popular model, modest output but good enough for Thursday nights.

More rugged and hard wearing as they tend to be an aluminium tube with an 18650 Li-on rechargeable battery and much higher power are to be found here www.torchdirect.co.uk/1000-to-1499-lumens-head-torch.html
I have the previous model of this one (but it was about half the price when I bought mine)

This one looks reasonable and includes a Lithium battery that seems to be directly chargeable via USB-C like a phone www.torchdirect.co.uk/1000-to-1499-lumen...-led-head-torch.html

I have a couple of headtorches that I had forgotten about if people want them.
LED Lenser H7R2 rechargeable 300 lumens. www.amazon.co.uk/Lenser-LED7298-H7R-2-Re...e-Head/dp/B00FYVF62C
Alpkit Prism 550 550 lumens torch - the drawback with this is although very compact and light, it uses 2 * CR123A lithium 3 Volt batteries and these cannot be replaced with rechargeables as these are generally 3.7 Volts. There are rumours of a rechargeable 3 Volt CR123 which seem very hard to track down.
