I've canceled my car insurance and in turn committed myself to being a bicycle commuter year round. In light of this I've decided to purchase a quality light. I've been using the planet bike beamer 5 for the last year or so as a fair weather commuter but I'm looking for more wattage now. My price range is anywhere from cheap ($30.00) to about $300.00. Lights that I've looked at are the princeton switchback 1.0 and 2.0 the Minewt X2, Topeak White Light, the Light and Motion Vega, and the BLT Ozone 21ne. I want it bright but my apprehension with the more powerful lights is that they'll be too hot to throw in my backpack immediately after taking the light off the bike. My apprehension with the cheaper lights is implicit, I'm worried they wont be a remarkable improvement over the beamer. The Minewt's mounting system seems to be awkward, especially in winter and it seems likely to break. Nonetheless, any recommendations or input on these lights would be great. Thanks in advance!
