Default Offgrid, what is my go to light, headlamp or flashlight?

Headlamp!

By far I almost always grab for my headlamp. I usually am on some mission and that mission will need the use of both hands so I grab the headlamp. I have a 1000 lumen headlamp and it lights up my whole yard far enough to determine whats what late at night.

On the few occasions that I grab for a flashlight its almost always due to needing a moonbeam mode late at night inside only. Being offgrid we do not have parasitic drain items that keep the house glowing at night. When we shut off the inverter the house goes pitch black. I use small lights to give moonbeam mode light to move around and preserve night vision

I will name features I really need out here......

Must be able to except high power 18650/rcr batteries.
Bonus if the light can also run on Eneloop AA's ( I find aa's do not last long enough)
Flashlights must have a flat bottom and tail stand.
Headlamps and flashlights must have a moonbeam mode.
Easy to operate in the dark, no fumbling for bizarre switches or modes.
Must come on in low mode and ramp up.
Bonus if they have a red led as well.
Must have USB charge port. I find the usb charge ports a God send and it saves so much hassle of hauling out my chargers and cables.
USB charge port must be water proof. I always lose the covers.

I see nitecore has just announced the HC 60 1k lumen with usb port and moonbeam. The price is great at around 50 bucks so I guess I will preorder one. I have about 8 headlamps but the lights just keep getting better and better.
