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.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
