I have a dual headlamp WITH a rechargeable battery: the Specialized "Fireballs" lights. They look very much like the Nighthawks except in silver. My son won this in a MTB rally/raffle from the LBS and only used it a couple of times. This was at least 3 or 4 years ago. So when I decided to cycle commute to work, it was laying in the garage. My handlebars were too thick so mounted a Minoura Swing-Grip on front stem and the Fireballs to that. One light is 3 w, the other 12 w and both are adjustable 'eyeball' style so they can be pointed in any direction. I love them commuting home after dark because the cars slow down when they see them. The rechargeable battery is a big honker and rests in my water bottle cage securely. No issue with recharging the battery - just unhook and set into charger each evening, put back into bottle cage in the morning before riding to work. I DO keep the battery in my commuter bag during the day so don't have to worry about theft.
The only issue has been curious people pushing the Minoura bar up & down and the Fireballs back & forth while it is parked outside the building.
They're beautiful handsome machines that translate energy into joy.
