New front light needed – specific requirements
(Specific requirements, Or awkward sod, you decide…)
Self contained battery.
2 modes: see and be seen*, no more (hate clicking through modes)
Roughly 7 hours run time if I use both modes equally-ish.
(*so something like 400 lumens, and 50. Not 400, click, 250, click, 100, click, bright flash, click, low flash, click, etc.)

Ixon IQ Premium – 56 pound plus delivery from bike discount http://www.bike-discount.de/en/buy/busch-mueller-ixon-iq-premium-led-139357?currency=3&delivery_country=190&gclid=CMmPu7uRvcoCFQkXwwodEMgG7wPosted 5 years ago
Exposure is the simplest answer here. Joystick probably a good option
Still haven’t given a budget though
Actually, I’ve just thought of another one (which I already have) – B&M Ixon Core. More of a road light but it’s very good, and it’s exactly on specPosted 5 years ago
B&M for road, Exposure for off-road.Posted 5 years ago
The new “choose your own” setting Exposure stuff takes a bit of getting used to, but really is useful
I have the B&M IQ Premium for on road – excellent beam pattern, looks and feels like a car headlight on full beam, doesn’t blind oncoming drivers/walkers/cyclists, perfectly sound light in the low mode. And a bargain.Posted 5 years ago
Does the IQ Premium need a special cable to charge?
The Ixon Core is a micro USB so easy to do at work. The IQ Premium is even brighter, though a little bigger. Looks like a winner, if charging is easy
EDIT – interesting info here – http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/b&m.aspPosted 5 years ago
Iq premium uses AA batteries – I just use Eneloops and charge them outside the light. There is a specific plugin charger as well. Agreed that if you’re by a computer the Core is more convenient, but the beam isn’t as useful on rural roads.
Busch and Mueller customer service is also rather good.Posted 5 years ago
this is all excellent stuff.
i didn’t want to dictate a budget, as i didn’t want to miss out on any good suggestions. i’m usually quite good at talking myself into spending money.
B&M have gone to the top of my list, but the Exposure Sirius is making me scratch my chin…Posted 5 years ago

Aw, and I was going to try to sell you my B&M dynamo setup 🙂Posted 5 years ago
