A 5W cree, assuming the reflector is good, should give you night time vision up to at least 100yards.. with the beam visible easily a mile away.

3xAAa should give you a few hours. Flashing mode maybe a day.

Ideal to rebuild into something rechargeable

Pass.. ..a lot depends on any internal wizardy..

I have worked with high power LED's before but only up to 1W..

They quote 100 hours for the rear light, and I don't doubt that claim - they're pretty standard stuff..

The candlepower forums may give some insight..
