Well spotted gaz.
The lead acid battery had died so I was faced, once again, with a dilemma: what lights would be best for my dark 9 mile ride home?
I revisited the old thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=73472&hilit=+smart+halogen and realised I was no further forward. I simply find it impossible to navigate between different types of light without physically using them - and at £300 a shot, that's not realistic.
However, for £7.00 I've ordered a new battery. These Smart Halogens do the job. However I still don't really know what would be the replacement for them, the next generation if you like. I could, AFAIK, go further and get a LiIon battery for them (and LED bulbs?). And I really don't want another cheap LED light (even the Cateye Opticube) taking up housespace but not up to the job.
So until I have some assurance that a £35 light is better (simply good value etc isn't enough) and I cannot afford the Exposure light, these old Smart Halogens will have to do. Humpf.
