If anyone is looking for a light for this ride I got one of these last week. UK seller , 2 day delivery. Similar price as Chinese sellers without the wait.
Very bright but I don't know how long the charge lasts. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CREE-XM-L-XML ... 1c35a10034
Are you gonna give us a wee report on the light?[/quote]
Rob - my Hong Kong order was refunded by the seller, after 3wks they advised it had been returned by customs. So I ordered the light hawmaw mentions above. Not used it on the bike yet, however I've noticed some improvements
one the plus side
a) delivery 2 days vs 26 days
b) charger has uk 3 prong (the other had a crap adaptor)
c) the quality of the machining of lamp housing is higher than the HK light
1. the HK light had sharp edges and swarf on the fins used to dissipate the heat
2. the HK light also had vents where you could see the back of the lamp holder - I was always worried about water ingress.
on the minus
a) the new light has a smaller battery, assuming this proportional to the battery length/time
b) the light has 3 settings of intensity, which is good, however my HK had intensity settings plus a strobing flasher which I thought was really effective for being seen on road.
curiously the chargers on both rattle, which I'm going to investigate incase something inside is loose and caused the IC to blow on the last one.
