Thanks for the reply, markorr. I had a look online just now, and battery life according to the manufacture specs of the two models appears to be pretty close; unless we're just comparing the high beam rating. The Cosmo is also 1/3 the price, is lighter, and doesn't seem to have a ton of customer reviews complaining about durability issues - the Spot has a number of reviews like that out there in cyberland. Have you had any problems with yours?

I've not had any problems with mine at all. It did leave me with a bruised forehead when my wife "accidentally" threw an elbow at my head and hit the headlamp, but the lamp survived unscathed. :)
