Well....inductive charging would be interesting but then you wouldn't necessarily be able to charge anywhere else...unless... it included a micro USB port as well. ;)

Well, seems I'm late to this thread as the OP has already picked a set-up. Of the lamps he mentioned I think he chose the best as the upper Cygolite Expelion series ( I believe ) allows the user to...

*This should be the least of your concerns. Your major concern should be, "Do the people behind me see me"? Unless the totality of your rear lamps is equivalent to the roof lamp bar on a police car...

If it was a serious infraction I don't know that I'd settle for just calling someone and complaining. If I've been run off the road while riding my bike and I had video and/or a tag or vehicle ID,...

I realize I'm kind'a late to comment on this but I agree the bus was too close. The video though doesn't show what was happening to the rear. Since the bus was moving fairly slow it blocked the view...

:foo: If you really think that then you need to see an eye doctor. Keep in mind only a couple of the modes on the Cygo HS 150 provide the maximum 150 lumen output. The steady mode I believe is max at...

I use wheel lights on my road setup. I think when it comes to wheel lights most people want something that is easy to mount/take off, has a half decent run time and will not set off geek alarms if...

Works for me. I would aim the lamp slightly downward though as most people tilt their head down slightly when riding. Lately I've been noticing that a lot of the new helmets simply have no place to...

I agree to a point. I've seen people attaching blinkies to backpacks and such. Not the perfect solution obviously but it's better than not having any rear light at all.

Yep, pretty much in my opinion. If you want more side light you might have to go with the Solas 150 although once again there is going to be a trade off likely. My school of thought on using rear...
