I also have Dinotte lights, which use rechargeable (sp?) batteries, which last about 2 - 2.5 hours on low power (I suppose runtime depends on how good the batteries are rather than how good the lights are as the batteries which came with the light only last about an hour) which is sufficient to travel along unlit country roads. The new model which replced the 5W model I have looks very good and has a range of different settings (unlike my model which only has high/low) and appears brighter as well. Available from On-One for £100 (or thereabouts) (edit - see the link provided by domtyler which was posted when I was typing this!) or I suppose direct from Dinotte if you want.domtyler said:Sorry, couldn't resist!
I use a Dinotte LED myself although I haven't used it yet this year. It lights up the road as if it were day, enabling you to ride at the same pace as during daylight, however, only for an hour or so before have to swap out the rechargeable batteries.
I am toying with the idea of a dynamo hub and wiring it up to a super bright LED or two.
