Headlight Recommendation Please
My current light is MagicShine MS-900, it's a little over a year old. The battery issue has bothered me although it still works reasonably well (I never bothered to return the battery due to rumors of major delays and general laziness)....burn time has dropped some but I suppose that's normal.
Anyway, I am looking for something that will be about as bright (or even brighter) as the MagicShine but more reliable. I do prefer a handlebar mount.
Budget is ideally approx $100 US or not too much over. That said, if there is a fantastic product that is more like $130-140 I would consider it.
I am leaning towards the Lezyne Super Drive. It seems pretty solid, is self-contained, and has an easily replaceable battery.
However I am open to other suggestions.
