Front "pulse" LED/CREE front light.

Postby Two_Trooper » 11 Oct 2015, 2:49pm

Hi Guys

I need a good front pulse light, it will be used for cummuting only - i don't want a super bright lights, not the ones that dazzle everyone on the road. Rechargeable if possible, a good 2-3hrs use on a full charge. I had two front lights but had them stolen off the bike when i popped into a shop in Holborn.
The Pulse lights I have seen, have a constant light then brighten for a sec and back to normal.

I have a Cateye Volt 400 which has the pulse feature. It's just about bright enough to see on unlit roads but would make a good city commuting light. Run time is 2-3 hours on the highest setting and its rechargeable. They are about £60 but I paid £54 as Evans had a 10% off deal. You might be able to get it cheaper online somewhere.

Aldi are doing a front and rear light at the moment. Front is a 1w led. About £6.
Not rechargeable. Their rechargeable ones are £8 each.
