Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
1. Uses AA a single battery! - can be easily replaced and spare charges can be carried around. 2. Very lightweight. 3. Good value for money. 4. 200 Lumen light power - very strong. I estimate 30 meter lighting distance. 5. Looks cool in my opinion.
Cons:
1. Sometimes my flashlight has some contact issues. But it is not a major problem. I get along with it.
Other:
As summer is coming back to our region I decided to go back to night rides with my mountain bike. I simply like the way the road is rushing under the cone of light the torch is producing. It created a totally different riding experience. I am using a rather powerful (2000 candela), handlebar mounted, Dr.Rider KMC i-light LED flashlight (3xAA battery, a totally waterproof casing) . Only recently I discovered that they were also bicycle chain manufacturers producing the lightest 9-Speed chain in the world! So all is nice and good but at some point I noticed I need some extra light power while riding in the night: something I can control it’s lighting direction. I decided to get myself a powerful helmet LED flashlight so I googled some word combinations like “helmet LED flashlight” or “helmet LED torch” but could not find anything that fitted my needs. What ARE my needs, you ask, OK: I wanted something that was both 1) easy to mount, and 2) supplied a high light intensity. In addition it also 3) must be a good value for money! What this actually means is a high quality product that is not too expensive :-) .
Bottomline:
If you want to learn "How to make your own LED helmet flashlight?" you can go to http://www.nightrider.iblogger.org/blog/?page_id=3 and see for yourself. It is described in detail with many pictures. Enjoy!
