Opinions on Topeak Moonshine Commuter?

Anyone try the Topeak Moonshine Commuter? Looks like a good light, but the run time of 4 hours for low-power is cutting it pretty close; my commute is 3 hours round-trip, and I'd like a to-see light that lasts at least 4 hours on full power. (The Topeak stuff is pretty rugged, that'sthe main reason I'l considering this light.)

Or... I could always get an extra charger and charge up at work, but it would be simpler to get a light that lasts longer in any case.

The commuter is being phased out. While there are likely still some available in shops, and many in the field (or on the street in this case) it will continue to be supported from a service stand point for some time. What is replacing the Commuter is the WhiteLite HP 2 watt. The new model features a LED emitter instead of a halogen bulb. It also features a Lithium Ion rechargeable power pack instead of NiMH... Currently it's not up on the Topeak website in the current products area however it is featured in the Topeak news section: http://www.topeak.com/2007/1007_new2008_3.php

The new model is meant to be scaleable in so much as a second lamp can be added and run off a second power pack port. The key benefit here is being able to stagger the lights for better coverage.
