This one ?

or

Yeah,the exposure stuff is meant to be good enough to justify its high price .

Ive never bought from Wiggle
Is it much the same as CRC. ? Find an item, take it to check out and pay via paypal and it will be sent to the paypal linked address or do i have to join them, supply all the details, address etc and take it from there :?

It's supposed to be about three hours, but it will depend on the quality of the AAs you put in.

It's not that great a deal - the full price the reduction is from is insane for a 200L light. I'd either get the Joystick or the Leyzne that Wiggle are selling, or I'd consider going to dealextreme online and order a couple of their universal bike mounts and a pair of AA lights - preferably a model with a textured reflector (more even beam) and regulated output (brightness varies less with battery charge). About $40-50 should get you want - although shipping can be a bit slow. Eg

Or check ebay.

Well I've just bought the Exposure one :D I've been happy enough with deal extreme torches in the past, but I have had a few failures and I'm always wary of the chargers I seem to get (I broken a couple of those too). The Exposure will be my commuter and back up bar light.


PS if you sign up for the newsletter you get a £5 off voucher which means I picked up the Joystick for £46 odd.
