What is the latest recommendation?
I have skimmed through this thread and decided that led flashlight is the way to go. While earlier post from 2008 recommended the the Romisen or more expensive fenix lights it seems that the tech for LED lights is changing so fast that there may be a better option for me now in 2010.

I plan to attach to the stem probably with a two fish bikeblock (will this fit?) or a two fish lock block
I will be charging batteries with this beast (I was an early adopter of rechargeable batteries. This guy has been going strong for 6-7 years). It says it is for NiMH and NiCd batteries. I am guessing it will not charge lithium or shorter cr123s? Is it worth it to invest in a lithium battery charger? Will I get a significent lumen benefit?
