Found this while perusing the Mountain Equipment Walmart (imean Co-op) catalog:
its a solar powered white LED front lamp. Kinda impressive "charge" & run times actually. I went in to look at it and paw it and the light is definitely a "be seen" light, but not a "too see" light. Well made, does'nt feel cheap like so many other blinkies.
if you hate batteries this is the light for you.
