Airbike P7 bike light on ebay.

Have you guys seen this Airbike P7 light on ebay? It looks very good for the price, its about double what a P7 flashlight and mounts/batteries would cost but the fact that it's designed for easy mounting and has an included battery pack and charger makes it pretty attractive. I found some discussion on it MTBR but nothing definitive (edit: found one review (pretty positive, with pictures)) . In terms of lumens/$$ it isn't too far some of the DIY options or flashlight options I see but is more refined than both of those options (unless you have some seriously good DIY skills. To me, 670 lumens for 3 hours is pretty solid.

Check it out and share your thoughts.

Looks interesting, but I'd rather just buy a P7 of my choosing and two pairs of batteries. You can already get two protected 18650s for $10, a mount for $2, a charger for $10, and a P7 for $40. Add an extra set of batteries, and you're still less than halfway to that device in price.

Yep cost wise it is still alot more than a flashlight but I see alot of people saying they don't like the idea of a flashlight, figured this might grab their attention
