these cree torches are back in at aldi for £12.00.
amazing light for the money.
adjustable beam width. runs on 3 aaa batts.
not bike specific but you can buy universal mounts from e-bay,so you can mount on handlebar or helmet.
Which ones?Posted 5 years agoheadfirstMember
Will pop in on my way home from work, and get me some of these too! 😀

Just tested in my back garden, no street lights. Amazing light. Perfect shape beam for a bike. On the narrow focus I could scan a tree 100m away and see details.
I’ll be getting another one tomorrow. Plan to mount two on my handlebars or one on handlebars and one on helmet.
Will post up how long they last on a ride.
The rear on/off button is easy to click with your thumb with the hand still on the handlebars.
I have a SMART 3w NICAD night riding light which is 6 years old and has a bottle cage battery and only lasts an hour now. So the ALDI will replace it.Posted 5 years agoScapegoatSubscriber

Got one today. I can’t think if you could buy a better one for the price or even triple the price.
Hit the trees at the back of my garden approx 100 feet no problem.
Just need to DIY a helmet mount now.[u] No problemo.
Inner tube . Adjustable, cheap, sustainable.

I just ordered the ebay ‘2 for a tenner’ ones. Worth noting they do not include batteries, once you add a charger and two 18650 batteries it comes to around £22.50 (different sellers, as the torch seller only has EU plug chargers) which is pretty much the same as Aldi, except you get rechargeable batteries instead of one use AAA’s. And I don’t have to go to Aldi 🙂Posted 5 years agospooky_b329Member
The guy is selling 18650 batteries so I presume he has had the sense to try, could be a slightly different design internally to the Aldi one. However I have emailed him to confirm.
He has sold out now but since I purchased a few minutes ago, the price jumped from 9.99 to 13.99! Can you set ebay to ramp the price up as the quantity decreases on multiple quantity listings?
I bought protected x2 18650 batteries and charger for 12.85.Posted 5 years ago
