It doesn't make for good forum discussion, though, because it's literally set it and forget it -- I can come back in five years and say, "My lights still work and I haven't touched a battery." Boring.

Anyway... the new light looks pretty neat, doesn't it? There aren't many images out there, just some PR stuff from Eurobike.

Oh, cool -- they're coming out with their own "Power Supply Unit":

I definitely agree that the power supply unit is really, really, really cool.

I, personally, have more of a "wait and see" attitude about the tail light.
