CygoLite Milion 200--Best Deal for $86?
I can get a CygoLite Milion 200 for $86 with my REI dividend and 20% coupon. Is this the best light I can get for $86 or less?
I am sort of clumsy, so I can't coddle my lights, and I live in Oregon where it gets cold and rainy. I would use the light on paved roads that vary from good condition to terrible, and my speeds range from 9mph to 22 (usually around 13mph). I am most interested in helmet-mounted lights without external battery packs. I want the battery to charge quickly and, if I do end up with a bike-mounted battery pack, it should detach quickly so I can bring it in the house to charge. I'd really like at least 3 hours of runtime.
I have a Planet Bike 15w halogen, but it takes so long to charge, is so irritating to attach and remove, and runs down so quickly that I never use it. Also it doesn't have a helmet mount, which I really wanted one time when I thought I was being chased by a mountain lion but I couldn't turn the light to investigate
Thanks for any guidance!
