What's a good USB light with a narrow beam/long throw?
I currently have a Light and Motion Urban 300 and Nightrider MiNewt 350 that light up the road real nice for about 40 feet or so.
But my commute is mostly down dark roads and paths that are strewn with debris and sometimes potholes. I go around 17-20 mph, and I like to see stuff before I get to it. I'd like to be able to light up the road about 75-100 feet ahead. I got the MiNewt because I thought it would solve this problem, but its beam pattern is nearly the same as the Urban 300. I prefer having multiple lights that could get me home on their own in case one fails.
I'd like it to be USB rechargeable and not cost more than my other two lights.
Any ideas? I know that having a narrow beam is often a feature people complain about, but in this case it's a plus.
