At less than $20 it's hard to beat. They are though, "cheap Chinese lights".

Interesting comparison > Serfas Thunderbolt, uses 30 mini Leds and is listed as 35 lumens on high. Cyborg is listed...

I'm hoping you're right about that. Keep in mind both the Cygolite Hotshot ( original ) and the current Hotshot Micro look like they are both narrow. The Hotshot 80 ( if you look at the photo on post...

You can count on it. Niterider has already upgraded their Solas to 150 and are including another ( the Sentinel ) with 150 as well. Only difference between those two I see is that the Sentinel...

Well the Cygolites look to be the better for daytime, no doubt about that and that's pretty much what I would have expected ( given the lamps you have ). The Vis 180 doesn't even look like it's on. ...

You're comparing apples to oranges ( or to put another way, like comparing a 2ft. fluorescent lamp to a flashlight ). Single high powered leds are very bright. The micro-panel LEDs can't produce the...
