I am a little surprised fella tbh . . I was pretty impressed overall..

They are lighter and more compact than my other (much more expensive) torch..

Didn't think a pair of them crowded a pair of straight bars either...

Got my lights today. Looks like they were posted on the 17th.

Well impressed with the cost/quality ratio. They're better than some lights I've seen selling for £15-20! As mentioned before the rear light bracket could be better. Not really a problem as I only bought them for the fronts. They'll be a nice backup for my BLT.

Have a look here for better batteries: http://www.fentbattery.com/en/Products.asp

Looking here:

http://www.fentbattery.com/en/Cylindrical.asp?id=453

... a Li-ion 22430 cell would likely fit, but be a bit short, pretty much the right voltage and have up to double the capacity of the highest capacity Ni-MH AAA cells.

Don't think they're very easy to get hold of in small quantities mind you, not to mention the difficulties of finding a suitable charger.
