Exposure Toro Bike Light--Wireless--700 Lumens: Any experience with this light?

Heck of a time to ask--pulled the trigger and ordered one today. $299.99/sounds better than $300==doesn't it?

I spent waaay too much time looking at the 100's ++ of light options. Lux vs Lumens. Yikes!
Decided I wanted wireless. That drastically cut the field. 3 hrs max light. 700 lumens. 276 grams. Ordered thru Exposure Lights USA.

Even though I didn't want wires I also ordered an Exposure Red Eye Tail Light which hooks into the Toro light. It is a non- blinker. Solid red light. I also have a PBSF tail light.

I will provide my thoughts on this system once it gets to me. Sorry no video/pics capability on my part. Nick

PS. Running is a lot less expensive than biking. I have already spent 2x more on gear than I paid for my Trek FX 7.3 hybrid. Close to 800 miles ridden in just over a month after not riding for 12 yrs. Nick

A lot of use who don't want wires simply use high output flashlights as they offer similar output but cost far less, so I don't think you'll find a lot of people here who have the Exposure light. But please do give a review once you get it.

No kidding. Running costs me $200/yr.

I have the MaxxD. Mount works great, light works great. I'm sure the Toro will work fine. The only downside is the long recharge time.
