    Best blinky light that uses AAA batteries

    I have a set of four AAA rechargeables, so would like to use them in a good quality front light. I bought a really cheap one on Ebay for $6, it worked fine, but the constant beam was not bright at all, and now I broke it's bracket accidentally.

    I'd like to keep this under $20.

    Planet Bike Sport Spot or Cateye HL-410.
    Every time we let a vehicle pass there is a little bit of compromise. But compromise allows the city to function and allows cyclists to function in the city. The trick is not to eliminate compromise but to learn how to work safely within it.

    Looks like I should forget about using AAA batteries to get decent light power as the Cateye 320 has 8 times the candlepower as the 410, for almost the same price. Should I go for that, or anything else I should consider for a flashing front light?
