I was going to get either the Cygolite Night Rover NiMH or Cygolite Night Rover NiMH Xtra. I just want to light for commuting, and will do little if any night off-road riding. I can get the upgraded light for about 18 extra bucks. The base model has a 6w(wide) and 6w(narrow) bulb, which can be turned on seperately or together. Burn time is 1.5 hr (both on) or 3 hrs (one on). The upgraded light has a 6 and 10 w bulb which can also be on together or seperatly with a 2-6hr burn time. I don't know how often I will need my light in my commute since I will not always be leaving before the sun comes up. The larger light is a few ounces heavier than the smaller one as well.
What does everyone think? Would the smaller light be adequate? or should i spend the extra money for the upgrade?
Or maybe you think I should consider a different light alltogether.
Thank you for the input.
