Cateye HL-EL620RC Nano?

Hi,

Anyone have any experience with this headlight? I would be using it in a busy suburb at night right after dusk. The streets are all lit but some side streets are dim.

Thanks

For the price of that, with it's limited specs (250 lumen, 1.5hrs runtime), I'd recommend getting the LED Lenser P7 flashlight and a flashlight mount for half the price.

The runtime is still a little short, but that's much better for the $$$. I like it,...

But, that second link you posted is more of preview - not a review.
