    Uh, what are rambling on about? You've posted a bunch of items for the same prices. Put down the bong, and think before you post, angry young man.

    If you look at many of those lights, sure they have 1.00 buy it nows with 18.00 shipping.. They just compensate with extra shipping cost.. Not really that many good deals..

    I bit on this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/5w-LED-Bicycle-F...#ht_3726wt_905

    For $8 I figured, "What the hey." My brother, a fireman, first told me of them and says it's a great little light. Another poster says the light is made by Romisen. Then I found this on Google; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4vixAdhios

    So, for $8 bucks I'm taking a shot. Even if it doesn't work out as a bike light it looks to be a decent flashlight. I haven't received it yet as I just ordered it yesterday.

    Just got back from a brief spin through the neighborhood with my new lights. I was impressed but then I don't know from Shinola. Ignorance may be bliss. It looks to be well made with a nice heft and solid feel. This little sucker is very bright and the tail light is icing on the cake.
    It will certainly answer for my needs if it holds up.
    Why don't one of you knowledgeable folks risk a whole $8 and let us know how these things stack up?
