Another headlight question

I usually cycle after work but I've been getting off from work later and later. The sun is still out when I head out but sometimes I get caught up in riding and on my way back home its getting dark so I figure I should get some lights.

I was thinking about getting two Cateye HL-530 lights or the rechargeable Double Shot. I'm looking to spend around $100-$150 on the headlights.

Consider the Cygolite Dual Cross 300 (Li-ion) as well
