The Spark is ideal for the cummuter. It is just 20 lumens shy of the punchy Joystick.

The 2010 Spark offers stunning performace like the famous Joystick but at an impressive price. It's ideal as a performance commuter light or as a special gift for him/her.

Supplied with two high quality disposible battery cells, handlebar mount and wrist lanyard."

I'm only posting this because I'm turned off from the wonders of DX lights/torches, after both my MagicShine bike light and the Peoples Cree 150lumen torch failed on me (soldering) during a night lap at Dusk Till Dawn MTB race. Thankfully I had also borrowed an Exposure Joystick from a friend and that got me round the rest of the lap.

Build quality over great VFM, I have realized, is worth paying a bit more . At least I know the Exposure will be watertight and wont vibrate apart!

I appreciate that this light isn't for every commuter/MTBer, but thought it good value if you were looking for a quality brand in a crowded market. I tried the cheapskate approach and for it didn't work out

From what I've read you need to choose your CR123A recharageable batteries carefully due to their varying size.

Helmet mount also worth considering at a fairly steep £16 (but still the cheapest around)

Personally I think fenix torches are good enough for the job, LD20 for about £40.
180 lumen on max, 2 hrs run and uses rechargeable AAs. Quality is excellent.

I'd recommend you try DealExtreme... but read up on your torch to find out whether it will accomodate these often longer rechargeables.
