I am getting some kind of a bike light with a removable rechargeable battery. The question now is which one. My main problem is being unable to actually see an use these lights so I was hoping for some input from those that have used these lights as to which light would be best.
I am looking for something for short night rides (up to 1 hour round trip) in primarily suburban, well lit areas. I have gotten by with a cheapo LED for a while but have had a pothole or 2 sneak up on me so am looking for more light.
My main concern about the ultrafire is whether it puts out enough light.
The Fenix l2d seems like a solid choice but at 60 dollars I would be distinctly less pleased to find out it does not suit my needs. Also, if I go for 2 (which seems to be a prevailing setup around here) it is $120. Still cheap but no longer laughable like the ultrafire.
The p7 is a new consideration. Does anyone have an answer for its medium burn time and lumen output at medium? I know the question has been asked but I have not seen an answer. Basically the question is how does the P7 light output and runtime on medium compare to the fenix l2d on high? If I can get the same or more output for twice as long with the p7 on medium it seems like a no brainer.....
Also, any combinations of the above. Ex p7 + ultrafire to bring cost down. P7 + fenix for runtime/reliability and readily available AA setup. Fenix+ Ultrafire for beam pattern... ect.
Thanks for the input.
