I've got one, but as it's my first dynohub I don't suppose I can offer much insight, except to say my new Brompton M6R with Marathons rolled more freely than my old S6L with Brompton greens. Once I pumped up the tyres on the old bike, the rolling resistance seemed much of a muchness.
The light that came with it is OK, but not all that - no better than the battery Cateye HL530 I also use, but has the advantage of staying on the bike, not interfering with the fold, and not needing batteries. The hub uses what I take to be a standard plug, which doesn't look at all waterproof, but I'm almost certain it will work with the Dahon Reecharge, I researched this and found pictures that look the same. A friend of mine bought the Dahon iPhone mount, which is pretty good, but I'm not convinced it would dampen vibrations sufficiently for peace of mind.
