I currently have a "powerbeam" mounted on my helmet, which is pretty useless for unlit paths - I can just detect whether there's a big object on the path, but that's about it. If I could greatly improve that situation for $20, goodie. If it was going to cost me $50+, I'd procrastinate instead.
I do have a couple of cheapo camping head torches with battery packs. I might try one of those and invest in rechargeables and charger. They were pretty crappy for camping (too heavy to be comfortable), but might be ok bike-mounted. Weird thing is they have 2 LED's and one incandescent bulb, and you can only use one or the other.
