    Another - "what light will clip to my glasses" question

    I was wondering whether anyone was happy or satisfied with a particular brand or type of light that can be clipped or taped or otherwise somehow fastened to an eyeglass frame.

    I've tried several helmet/head mount lights and have decided that all I really want is a small auxillary light to see my my computer and perhaps a map other intermittent need.

    So I'm thinking somekind of single AAA setup or even smaller- with an accessible on/off switch while I ride.

    Anyone have a solution they are particularly happy with?

    I believe when you want something that small it becomes an issue of the light not being able to produce enough light and would be a waste of effort except for maybe reading a book.

    Why so small?

    I use a light similar to one of these strapped to helmet peak. Some aluminium tape over the end to stop it shinning in my eyes. Good for a speedo and probably a map too.

    Clipping a light to your glasses does not sound very practical. Are you wanting to see the conputer all the time like during the day or just look at it occasionally.?

    I have a small LED light that has a chain and keychain ring attached to it. I attached this to my jersey or jacket zipper and then reach up and turn it on when I want to look at my computer. My night rides are confined to groups and are during the winter when I do not want or need to look at my computer all the time. I am just concerned with looking at miles traveled once or twice while riding and when we stop.
    What is better than getting your heart rate up and saddle time?

    Thanks, I found several lights that will work. But I'm always on the lookout for better "setups."

    This is probably the best out there right now if you like aaa batteries. You can even get rechargeable batteries for it. Read the specs and comparing it to others specs will probably impress you.

    Probably the second brightest aaa on the market right now.

    On low setting it will go 8 hours. In total darkness on high setting you can use it to ride the bike if you take it easy. It comes with a clip that will hold it on a visor.
