I love my Planet Bike Headlights and other branded Tail lights, but riddle me this. Why do we have such short run times?

I had a 6 year old tail light that ran off 2 AAA batteries that would last over 2 months of daily riding (1-3 hr rides) It happened to be a Niterider brand, and was quite bright enough for day riding.
Unfortunately it failed last summer.

Now I’ve had 3 different Rechargeable lights that only last 3-4 rides tops. My stack of charge cables is a mess.
