Best lights for 24 hour race

I am traiining for a 24 hour bike race. I need recommendations for good front lights for training and for the competition. Many of the lights I have seen have a fairly short charge life when set on a high setting. For the race and for some training I need more then a few hours of good light.

Cheers Pkcycles and welcome to Bike Forums.

We have a couple of sections that might be helpful to you: Electronics, Lighting and Gadgets has technical discussion; and if you ask these questions in Long Distance Competition you should get real user feedback on various lights.
