Why not wafer batteries? Because AAA are easier to pick up just about anywhere, and hard to mistake for the wrong one, and because they generally have a long running time.
Why not USB rechargeable? Because it's an 8-year-old. He'll forget to charge it. With AAAs he will be good to go for a few weeks or even a few months.
Why not a high-end light? Because he's not riding major roads at 10pm. He's tooling around the neighborhood and in bed by eight or nine (at least mine is).
