From the web site,

Rogue - TY VM for quick response. I take it that the word "headlamp" refers to a single head light for a road vehicle. Once you cool the unit and it's contents down... I imagine it also has good capability to stay cool for some time (operating basically as a stand alone cooler) before need to reactivate into its cooling mode. Therefore it seems being plugged in would not be needed over night after a full day of cooling. I'm getting more and more interested.
