    I tried a few a while back, and my cheap smartphone bombed out with them. The phone was too slow for Strava and I forget why I didn't use Map My Ride.

    2) Homeowners insurance will cover property damage you do on...

    My came with 2450 mAh AA batteries.

    They make rechargeable lithium AA batteries? The only one's I've seen are 3.7 volts.

    Will regular lithium's work in the light? How long would it run?
