if you had your own powersupply that u can run, get a lipo charger...they are only like 50 bucks for a 2 cell charger...and batteries can be had for under 100 depending what capacity you were looking for.
another route is going with one of those tactical lights that run off primary 123s...they have low voltage cut off to protect batteries as well as a regulated current draw so that you always get consistent brightness all the way till the end of the battery cycle. you can get luxeon bulbs that run off a single 123 that outputs 80 lumens...that's plenty bright for road riding.
additionally, these mostly have tuned optics for a very clean beam battern...no hotspots and tons of residual side spill. i personally run a HSD EDC 60
Admittedly, much of this flew over my head like a London bound 747, but I would like to learn more of this DIY light construction. I'd LOVE to have a motorcycle pingpong ball headlight setup, with high beam!!!! I wouldn't mind baggin a recharagable 12v battery, what a couple/few extra pounds in the bag....no biggie. mmmmm surprisingly bright lights to one's way with. There are a couple sections of bike path at night that are terrifyingly black, in places you don't want it to be black.
Steeeeeeeker, time to come iiiiiiinnnn!! Little House on the Prarie is on soon!!!!

As for chargers, I'm not up on the technology enough to comment. I would think at the very least you want something voltage regulating that goes into a trickle mode automatically. Many bike lights don't have proper chargers...mine has a cheap DC transformer and a timer.
I haven't seen or heard of Junko since that time, what is she up to lately?
not sure what shes doin now...just vanished after that...Im sure she tries for another title every year...and makes the odd appearance in videos etc...but have you seen the newer bashment queens? I think they got Junko beat...she made them look rell bad that year tho!
