So, this is the headlight I just picked up from the bike shop today. I’ve been looking for a bright light that runs for hours. And doesn’t weigh a ton. This is the Dura Vision Pro XLT 3.5 watt headlight Rick recommended. No idea on the run time. We’ll see.
This is the current light I’ve been using. It’s an older Turbo Cat Stealth 6 watt with a rechargeable pack. About 2.5 hours, I believe.
And this was the older Serfas Sl-1000 3 LED Ultrabright I had used as a lightweight light to use. It goes for about 140 hours, which is probably in flashing mode. So, can I count on about 70 hours?
I slapped on this Cateye Opticube 3 LED light for another comparison.
And last, my original headlight from the early 90’s. I think it’s some sort of Vista Light with an incandescent bulb. Who knows?
So, I’ll be trying out the Dura Vision Pro with my Turbocat along as a backup. At least until I’m sure I like the new light.
If anyone has spent any time with a Planet Bike headlight, please let me know. I really like their taillight, so I’m curious about the front.
