Yeah great them,

I wouldn't get one that blinds drivers of other bigger vehicles sharing the road tbh.
#3
Careful charging the battery though, they have been reported as catching fire so shouldnt be left unattended or proper precautions taken.

Just to note, I am an MOT tester, I will adjust the "headlamp aim" to fit with the law, so that it doesn't dazzle other road users.

A bit more but this type work well, there's a smaller one with two leds that's pretty good too if on a budget.

I've got the two LED version of this and it works very well.

I have a Cree 1800 lumen.

This is ideal for me as I commute through Richmond Park in Richmond upon Thames (I work shifts), mainly as there are also no lights in the park and also helps to avoid colliding with any of the deer, and even sometimes pedestrians who tend to walk on the road through the park when it’s dark, and in dark coloured clothing too.

1800 lumen appears to be enough too as there are also no lights in the park and can also be very dark in the long winter nights. It’s a good light as long as you don’t mind strapping quite large battery onto your handle bars, or frame as stefromuk has mentioned. I definitely recommend getting one all the same.

The one I have is my second one, I snagged one of the wires on the other one I had, so had to get a replacement, I’ve not had any issues with it so far. The battery also appears to hold its power for longer than the other one I had too when its running low, I can get at least an extra half hour out of it when noticing it running low, the other one would go off not long after noticing (there's a green indicator light that turns red when battery is low).

What coys67 has mentions could also be true though personally I haven’t experienced any issues since buying the one I currently own, I’ve had my current one for just over a year now. I also sometimes charge it at work too, while attending to other things as well.

I notice also the one you are after gives 3 hours full power on flashing mode, you might wish to though I tend not to put mine on flashing mode as it’s extremely rapid. I’m pretty sure it lasts a little longer than 3hrs too though the one you’re after is more powerful. It may not be that much more though.

If you do decide to get one make sure you disconnect the wires when not in use too as it zaps the power from the battery otherwise.
