On the other hand maybe with a suitcase full of them you might get the rubber-glove treatment from UK Customs. :shock:

I've just picked up a "
1300 CREE T6 LED Bike Bicycle Light Flashlight Torch A7" up for £19.68 delivered on eBay. Bargain for: 1300Lm High Power Torch
+Bicycle Light Holder + 5 Leds Rear Light
+2 x 2400mAh 18650 Battery + Charger. Got to be worth the money as an occasional off-road light, esp if it's near to the claimed 1300Lm.

After searching for ages for the most recommended lights and trying a few out for myself ive settled on a twin XML, as reviewed and sold by torchythebatteryboy.
They have a great spread and don't appear to suffer at all with overheating issues like other 'wonder lights' ive come across (MJ-872 is worst culprit). They also have a very impressive throw. I've seen around 2h45min+ on (mainly) full mean so plenty of burn time too.

You can also ditch the rubbish rubber band type bar mount kit and easily adapt a universal Hope bar mount kit to fit, which gives a rock solid mounting to your bar.
Bear in mind these pics were taken in pitch darkness, you can see how good the throw is on my neighbours wall!

These can be found for as little as £99, I really don't think anything betters it for value, that is, for true fast speed reliable off road night riding. Coupled with an Exposure Diablo on my helmet, im really happy with my night ride set up.

Not had chance to offroad with it yet, but it is phenomenally bright! I came back from work with my 270Lm light on the other day and that was just about bright enough. The 1300Lm light should be amazing! Seems of ok quality, metal construction. Comes with two rechargeable batteries and only needs on in at a time, which handily gives you a spare. For under £20 I'm more than happy :)
