I have a night ride planned shortly, and have a problem with lights. We have a rechargable system that is 5wflood and 10wspot, but this only has a 3 hour life in the battery. A spare battery is planned but this light system is only going to be used when required. To give us ride lights, we have a Cateye EL300 and an EL500. They are supposed to give us 30 hours on the replacable batteries, but are only going to be used as riding lights as they are not strong enough for the more technical parts of the trail. The ride incidentally will be 80 miles, and as we have found out, Night riding is going to be slower so reckon it will take 10 hours of riding. Problem is- I am looking for a Helmet light. Anyone any experience of these? It will only be used for map reading, or if repairs have to be made, so we are not looking at anything too powerful. Only point is, is must not be gold plated, and it must be a helmet light. Anyone any suggestions?
