The Blackhawk light is single cell, and we issue it, but I find the same deficiency, plus it doesn't have momentary operation, has a parasitic drain on batteries, leaves you stuck with their holster, and otherwise generally blows. I am on my third or fourth battery and I have turned the light on at exactly one training day.
Glock's dual battery, single stack light might have helped, but I don't think they're that popular and obviously you're refitting holsters.
The best way to prevent such an incident is to protect your gun.
