You should go for the lanyard tail type because it is more reliable. The other options available are a 3D type or a 2D type. 3D type has a heavier built while the 2D type has a smarter build. The runtime of the 3D type though is longer. There is not much difference in the runtime of both types. 2D and 3D lights will always be more expensive than the 2AA lights.
