Yes, I looked at the lights stickey but quite frankly, I don't have the time or money to get a Ph.D in electrical engineering nor has my father taught me everything he knows about exterior illumination (thank you Clark Griswald).
I am looking for battery powered headlights for recreational street riding and trail riding on dim or entirely unlit roads and easy trails. I don't like the fact that the expensive lights only run for 2-3 hours and that some need 8-9 hours to recharge. I also don't want wires and additional mountings to worry about.
Please give me your opinions on the best and brightest headlights that take batteries. I'm willing to get a T-bar and mount two if necessary. The Planet Bike 5000X and Sport Spot looks good on their website and the Cateye 530 also sounds good. I'll probably also get a small light to mount on my helmet too. What are your thoughts?
The problem I have is that some lights are measured in watts, some in lumens and some in candlepower and there doesn't seem to be a conversion or comparison chart. This makes shopping very difficult.
